For Perth’s redeveloped City Beach surf club a material that weathered well, with little need for on-going maintenance was a prerequisite and Futurewood’s composite decking was chosen to complete the job.
In 2012, a multi-million dollar renovation of Perth’s City Beach surf club was approved, with final construction completed at the end of 2015.
Chuditch – Perth based timber flooring specialist - was contracted to supply and install Futurewood’s SaltBush composite decking, together with Futurewood’s 86mm custom-made decking, which was used as cladding for planned planter boxes within the project site.
Made from 90 percent recycled material, Futurewood’s composite decking and cladding products are a low-maintenance timber alternative. The composite materials will not rot, split or cup and do not require oiling or painting, minimising the on-going upkeep and helping to keep costs in check.
For the City Beach surf club, it was clear that that with a seaside location the material chosen for the decking would need to withstand this harsh environment over a long period of time – Futurewood’s composite decking and cladding was the right fit for the job.
Patrick Coutts, projects manager at Chuditch and site supervisor for the City Beach surf club decking installation was faced with multiple challenges during the life of this project, but the quick installation of Futurewood’s composite decking helped to make that part of the project trouble free. Mr Coutts commented that “Chuditch intends to pursue any large commercial project where this product [Futurewood composite decking and cladding] is specified in future.”
Futurewood’s composite products can be used for both commercial and domestic projects. For more information about Futurewood’s full range of composite decking materials and cladding systems, call 1300 484 308 or email email@example.com
