The Environment

Environmental benefit

Building with a timber structural system in place of steel and concrete is good for the environment.

If timber is used as a structural material instead of steel and concrete for construction of a new building;

  1. the production of the timber structure releases far less carbon dioxide to the atmosphere than a corresponding structure made from steel (or concrete),
  2. timber used in the structure provides long term storage of carbon, and
  3. the use of timber provides an economic incentive to plant more trees to soak even greater amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Trees recycle carbon from the atmosphere to provide timber; the ultimate recycled material.

Considering all the benefits timber offers, environmental, aesthetic and cost effectiveness, makes timber the natural choice.
