Timber is the building material of the future. It is lightweight, safer and easier to use and with the accuracy of the new cutting technologies, it can be assembled in less time with notable cost reductions.
The real benefit of timber is when it is responsibly sourced. Apart from its beauty, timber is a renewable resource which offers a sustainable solution for commercial and private construction projects, paper, fabric, packaging and hygiene alternatives, wood pellets for heating and animal bedding and a plethora of other products to replace many of the current non-degradable products which are adding to our global warming challenges.
Using timber brings a lot of benefits because it is a maintainable resource capable of lasting for all the generations to come. Trees absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and then become storage houses for the carbon they collect. The carbon then stays in the timber, even after it’s been transformed into wood-based products. This contributes to a reduction in CO2 emissions and a offers a great alternative to fossil fuels and other non-renewable materials.
At CLOS, we are passionate about sustainable solutions for the future of construction and finding new, energy efficient resolutions for all living, working and recreational environments.
