International Timber, the UK’s largest timber supplier and distributor, is proud to have supported local charity, Play Alloa, in the construction of its fantastic new games room.
The charity, which is the leading provider of play and social opportunities for children and adults with disabilities and additional support needs within Clackmannanshire, has seen rapid expansion in recent years and sought funds and practical assistance in enhancing its premises.
International Timber’s local Grangemouth branch was pleased to answer the call after the charity’s needs were highlighted by Bob Davis, Membership Manager at the Structural Timber Association (of which International Timber is a member), whose daughter attends Play Alloa.
Working with the project architect, International Timber supplied Canadian Lumber Spruce for the framing of the new games room free of charge and heavily discounted Siberian Larch for the external cladding.
Siberian Larch was recommended due to its incredible resistance to the elements and a hard-wearing nature, which means it can be counted on to weather the worst the Scottish climate can throw at it, while still enjoying a fantastic life span.
Commenting on the project, Mark Thomson, Regional Sales Director for International Timber in Scotland, said:
“We’re immensely proud to have been involved with such a worthy cause and know that the structural and external timber we supplied will see Play Alloa through for years to come.”
