Stirling-based Bryceland Total Timber Solutions Ltd has won an £80,000 order to supply Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified Siberian larch cladding for the new Easterhouse Cultural Campus in Glasgow.

The larch cladding – supplied as the widest boards ever to arrive in the UK – was specified by Kier Scotland.

Director Gerry Bryceland said the company, which has just entered its third financial year, had seen its order book fill up quickly. Turnover has grown from £575,000 in the first year to a projected £1.5m for this financial year.

Projects to date include western red cedar internal roof timbers for the Little Sisters of the Poor chapel and nursing home in Greenock, Siberian larch cladding for the new Nick Nairn Cook School in Stirling, fire-treated Siberian larch claddings for the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland and Class 1 fire-treated louvered external cladding for the ultra-modern Sandy Road clinic in Glasgow.

Mr Bryceland said: “We may not be the largest company, but architects and contractors have said our approach is fresh and enthusiastic.”

From the start, the company understood the need for environmental credentials, and it achieved FSC certification with BM TRADA last year. “We recognise our responsibility for the future of our industry and feel passionate about it,” said Mr Bryceland.

“New orders are coming in by word of mouth and we have also received a steady flow of enquiries from the FSC website. We hope that in five years’ time certified timber with chain of custody will be the industry norm, but we wanted to be in there now.”
