The major redevelopment of the rugby ground in Belfast has incorporated 250 sheets of 18mm SmartPly OSB3 boards. The strong sustainable OSB3 has been utilised during the reconstruction of The Ravenhill Ulster Rugby Club to provide a temporary hoarding cover for the site. SmartPly provided the solution for practicality and durability.
Frieze Art Fair in London’s Regent Park was billed as the contemporary art event of the year. The show ran between the 17th and 20th of October and featured over 150 exciting galleries. To ensure the event ran smoothly, SmartPly OSB and Medite MDF were chosen as the main construction materials for the gallery walls and flooring.
The main feature of the new flooring at ‘The Governor Rocks’ bar-café in County Down, Northern Ireland, is a distinctive natural wood visual. SmartPly OSB Floor Tongue and Groove (T&G) was selected for the new flooring, to provide both a hard-wearing surface that is easy to clean and maintain, along with a smart yet rustic appearance that requires minimal surface finishing.
