The new Sherborne branch of Bradfords Building Supplies has produced a concept store which heavily features the use of SterlingOSB Zero from Norbord.
Wanting to create a statement that would showcase its 250 years’ heritage, Bradfords Building Supplies’ new Sherborne branch has designed its interiors to produce a stripped-back ‘concept store’ which features SterlingOSB Zero.
Customers can see the panelling — which boasts inherent strength and works as a practical canvas for further signage — across the trade counter, panel walls, corner boxings and signage throughout the store.
The complete re-fit was carried out by a local specialist in interior design and fit-out. The initial brief from Bradfords was to create a stripped-back store with the fabric of the building on display as much as possible. Donal Ryan, Head of Operational Improvement at Bradfords, suggested using SterlingOSB Zero on the trade counter and the rest of the design developed from there.
Ryan explained: “SterlingOSB Zero has a fantastic look and feel. We’ve used one of our best-selling core products throughout the store and it adds a modern touch; it represents who we are as a builders’ merchants. The material is great to work with and we are looking at working with Norbord’s products again in what will be our 43rd branch in Helston, Cornwall.”
