When Queensland-based builders Plantation Homes wanted to create a new look, they worked closely with James Hardie to create a product that combined the classic features of traditional design with a strong, contemporary feel. In a production environment, however, the key was achieving this cost competitively.
The result was Scyon™ Stria cladding. While Scyon™ Stria cladding may be the new kid on the block in the building industry, it is already making inroads with consumers as well as being cost effective, efficient construction for Plantation.
As General Manager Paul Roots points out, consumers are quick to recognise the appeal. While the rule of thumb is that 70% of what it sold is based on what consumers see on display, Scyon™ Stria cladding is already breaking that rule. "The results have been fantastic," Roots says. "People are asking specifically for that product on their homes regardless of whether it was displayed … or not." Find out more in this case study.
