Innowood, proudly represented by their local distributor in New Zealand, The Building Agency, partnered with The University of Canterbury Students’ Association (UCSA) to deliver a clean and elegant finish to the new building.

Designed by Architectus and built by Leighs Construction, the UCSA building features Innowood’s V-joint shiplap cladding products in Spotted Gum colour.

UCSA building

Innowood’s shiplap cladding system employs an interlocking tongue and groove design to achieve concealed fixings while providing a conventional timber appearance with a warm, clean and durable finish. Consistently uniform shadow lines between the boards become architectural features when installed vertically as specified by the architect. 

Each section has been individually tailored and designed to create a beautiful finish both externally and internally.  

Innowood materials are 100% recyclable and sustainable, and aim to protect the environment by recycling the material that would otherwise be destined for the landfill.

Congratulations to UCSA for Te Kāhui Whaihanga NZIA Canterbury Architecture Award – Education 2021.
