Work is Underway at Edenbridge Memorial Health Centre

BCL Timber’s award-winning team will install 1,000m2 of external timber at the facility in Kent.

Wooden slatted walls and acoustic timber specialist BCL Timber has officially commenced work on a new external PEFC Thermowood cladding installation at Edenbridge Memorial Health Centre. 

A Modern Design For A Modern Facility 

The Edenbridge Memorial Health Centre is set to bring seamless healthcare access to the residents of Edenbridge by delivering a number of health services under one roof. BCL Timber has been tasked with designing, developing, and delivering the external timber cladding to deliver a beautiful prefabricated panel system solution for the town’s newest facility. 

Having kickstarted the project in 2022, the Memorial Health Centre is approaching its final stages of development and remains on track to open in late autumn as expected. 

Following strategic planning and design phases, the award-winning BCL team are now onsite at the new Edenbridge Medical Centre in Kent, installing 1,000m2 of external timber cladding panels in a full external envelope solution, including all membranes, insulation and fire barriers, for main contractor Galliford Try. 

Areas of the building will shortly be clad in PEFC Thermowood (European Redwood or Scandinavian Pine which has been heat-treated to increase durability to ‘Class 2’ in accordance with BS EN 350-2:1994). The wood cladding panels have been designed and pre-fabricated at the company’s factory in Berkshire and are now being installed using secret-rear fixings to all timber slatted panels, removing face fixings allowing the timber to age better and any refurb coatings, last longer. 

Once the wood cladding has been installed, the centre will provide 2,180 square metres of clinical and community space including a GP practice, outpatient services, minor injury unit, x-ray services, and more. The facility’s partners are Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust, Edenbridge Medical Practice and Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group. 

BCL Timber’s cladding panels and external wood soffits include typically around 15% recycled material & 70% organic - while they simultaneously offer significantly lower embedded carbon than other MDF, composite or veneered panels. They are additionally free of surface weaknesses for increased durability, resulting in stunning aesthetics that are set to last. 

The tailored solution will provide an aesthetically pleasing, fully tested and certified, financially effective solution, thus making it the perfect match for the Edenbridge Medical Centre’s requirements and its partners.
