Our Ecological approach to your timber building project

Your accommodation unit, garden office or summer house will be made from wood originating from sustainable forests.

Our green policy is geared towards sustainability and long-term ecologically friendly solutions. We are proud to have completed projects which use bamboo flooring as a replacement for rainforest hardwoods, and incorporated sedum roofing as a replacement for traditional felt or tiles. Using these methods is not a compromise on quality or insulation.

Benefits of Sedum roofing

  1. Reduction in rainfall water run off with an absorbtional rate of around 70% to 90%
  2. Improved insulation through winter months
  3. Cooling influence thoughout summer months
  4. Improved sound insulation
  5. Overall saving on energy bills
  6. Environmentally friendly

Sedum Roofing

Sedum roofing is a long proven technique that uses nature to protect your building for many years to come. Sedum is a tight knit of low-growing succulents - plants with thick fleshy leaves and stems, which makes them particularly suitable for growing in the inhospitable conditions found on a roof.

A Sedum roof can be used almost anywhere, the pitch of the roof can be up to 30 degrees, and curves are easily accommodated.

Bamboo Flooring

Bamboo flooring is one of the hardest natural materials available for flooring and is an excellent alternative to hard wood flooring. Bamboo has a higher fibre rating than any hardwood, which gives it exceptional hard wearing qualities.

Bamboo is a rapid growing grass and not wood, it can be harvested every 3-5 years unlike the 15-25 years for most wood. This makes bamboo a very environmentally friendly product for flooring.

Different bamboo flooring finishes currently available:
