Teddington Cricket Club London SILVALarch Boards Factory Coated in Sansin SDF Solid Hide Black

Teddington Cricket Club is a family-friendly cricket club, located in the Grade 1 listed Bushy Park, London. The club is one of the oldest in its locality, with games having been hosted at the ground since circa. 1827. The original pavilion at the club had been in situ since the end of World War II and was no longer suitable for the modern-day sports facility Teddington Cricket Club has now become.

Following fundraising efforts to secure £1.5m for the renovation project, a proposal for a new purpose-built structure was developed by Architects, Reed Watts. This would see the existing accommodation doubled in size, and bring the current dated design in line with 21st-century expectations.

The new pavilion includes four new changing rooms and two large social spaces. To the exterior, the L-shaped design opens up to a stunning roof terrace which offers superb views across the teams' pitches and further across Bushy Park.

The building is clad in Siberian Larch, elements of which have been factory coated in Sansin SDF Solid Hide Black. The central block maintains the natural colour tones of the Larch cladding which, over time, will weather to a silver-grey patina.

The Teddington Cricket Club build features our 21x96mm SILVALarch B Grade Boards which were selected due to their durability, stability, and density. These kiln-dried boards are available in 3 grades and 4 board sizes and come with FSC chain of custody certification.

To ensure the wood is protected from the outset, and to facilitate installation regardless of weather conditions, some of the boards were factory coated in Sansin SDF Solid Hide Black. Sansin's specially formulated oils and resins penetrate deep into the wood, providing outstanding weather and UV protection.
