Their Oriented Stranded Grottoes used the decomposition process of fenland biomaterials to generate methane energy, all relying on the strength and weatherproof resilience of SterlingOSB Zero in the grotto structure.
While the competition afforded Rob and Justin the opportunity to imagine a hypothetical use for the product, Rob explained that he makes great use of the product in his work.
Why do you specify SterlingOSB Zero?
Probably because of its cost versus return. It is a cost-effective product for forming timber structures, volumes and partitions. Across the construction process, it has a good return on its investment.
As an architect what do you like about SterlingOSB Zero?
How important is it as an architect to use an OSB supplier who is committed to sustainable production and supply?
It’s critically important! The decision to move more towards timber frame and use sustainable materials throughout my practice has to be underpinned by this sort of commitment. There’s little point in specifying timber products that don’t offer that sort of security.”
