VIVIX® by Formica Group delivers a natural touch to school facade

When David Turnock Architects were commissioned to design the new Silsoe Church of England VC Lower School with a fabric first approach and emphasis on energy efficiencies, VIVIX® by Formica Group panels were specified for the facade.

The design brief required a blend of natural woodgrains. 8mm thick VIVIX panels in Golden Morning Oak, Mission Oak and Barn Oak were selected for the facade; meeting the requirement for a wooden cladding aesthetic, but providing superior performance properties than its natural counterpart.

All VIVIX panels for the project were manufactured in the UK, reducing on material transportation and the overall project carbon footprint.
