Timber Based Buildings
Timber is the only renewable building material on the planet. Environmentally it is ‘top of the tree’, being an effective insulator, bio-degradable, less energy intensive to process than almost any other building materials, and needing fewer ‘energy miles’ throughout the construction chain. Thee are some of the reasons why it is our preferred material for our Low Energy buildings. It is also the forerunner of our expanding Specialist Merchants division, providing unusual and hard to find environmentally sound, eco-friendly and sustainable building products and components.
