ENVIRONMENTAL STATEMENT

WE LOVE TIMBER!

The timber we use to manufacture our buildings is all pressure treated with preservative which provides long term protection against decay and insect infestation.

The Oriented Strand board is not treated but it conforms to British standards.

The protection of our natural environment is at the core of our company ethos.

All our timber products are carefully sourced focusing on supply from well managed and sustainable resourses.
