We deal with many different types of timbers in the use of street furniture. Timber is one of the few natural and renewable building material which have a greenhouse positive product with a lower net environmental impact than most other building materials, such as emission-intensive steel, aluminium, or concrete.
We source our specialist timbers from suppliers who are committed to the responsible and sustainable management of the forest resource in which they operate. Primarily we work to secure supply from sources that are known to be both legal and well-managed.
We aim to use the best timber “fit for purpose” in certain situations. Whether this be a Hardwood to prevent warping, or a type of timber that has minimal bleed to prevent staining on surfaces, we generally work with the client to work out what is the best fit for both cost, use and impacts to the environment.
