Broome Golf Club Vulcan Cladding Abodo Wood 2
The architects responded to the surrounding landscape with a natural timber cladding that will be allowed to weather.

Aware that it is located on a prime scenic location, Laird Tran Architects were tasked with designing new golf club facilities for the Shire of Broome, which will be a drawcard for thousands of international visitors.

Located within 100 m of the Indian Ocean the facility required a durable, low maintenance solution - which is why the architect used our Vulcan timber cladding with Sioo:x coating.

Installed in September 2020, the Vulcan timber cladding came pre-finished with Sioo:x.

In order to cure and turn silver the Sioo:x requires moisture and carbon dioxide, making the timing of installation perfect for the upcoming wet and humid summer conditions.

More about Sioo:x

Abodo’s Vulcan timber is a durable, stable, thermally modified timber which according to Sioo:x technologists; “the medium density of Vulcan timber, combined with it’s textured sawn face, means that our reactive wood protection can penetrate well into the timber and react with it to create the best possible durability.”
