Thermally treated redwood cladding and decking from Howarth Timber and Building Supplies has been installed at The Boardwalk - the marina's retail accommodation - co-ordinates aesthetically with the thermally treated pine decking which was also selected for the marina.  Further benefits of the cladding and decking include its ability to maintain size and shape, durability, stability, strength and consistent colour change on weathering.  Sustainable sourced with PEFC certification, the material also has a decreased risk of mould and improved thermal and hygiene qualities.

The marina, in Willington, is Europe's largest inland marina and boasts a plethora of biodiversity and wildlife. The Boardwalk also boasts a bar and restaurant in which customers can wine and dine, along with a farm shop and a host of boutique retailers.  Howarth's cladding and decking therefore suits the surrounding natural environment whilst ensuring a sleek appearance in its high profile location.   The building is now a landmark in South Derbyshire and looks fantastic!
