SUSTAINABLE TIMBER AND WOOD
All of the site timber is supplied by Travis Perkins who are registered under both the FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) Schemes which ensures that all wood is sourced from legal and sustainably managed forests.
The hard wooden flooring and kitchen worktops are all made from Bamboo rather than traditional hard woods. Bamboo is an environmentally friendly, renewable resource that has been used as a construction material for thousands of years. Ecologically, the harvesting of bamboo does not affect the world’s already dwindling timber resources. Technically considered a grass, bamboo has the ability to grow to maturity in 4-6 years. The intricate root system remains unharmed upon harvesting and allows for sustainable future growth. Using bamboo is a natural alternative to traditional hardwood flooring while at the same time doing something good for the environment.
