Why Timber?

Timber has low embodied energy and is a greenhouse positive product that contributes to the long term reduction of carbon emissions, thus positively addressing climate change.

Substituting a cubic metre of wood for other construction materials like concrete,  blocks or bricks, results in approximately 1 tonne of CO2 savings.
