Architects, Designers and Certified Timber

The adoption of timber as a design and building material is the first step to creating a signature building. It is a fashionable, flexible, organic and an aesthetically attractive material that allows architects and designers to develop creative and innovative construction solutions.

Timber is the link between building and nature, and certified timber enables architects to meet stringent public and private procurement policies worldwide so major contractors can deliver exacting architectural concepts.

Certified timber enables architects to meet stringent public and private procurement policies worldwide so major contractors can deliver exacting architectural concepts – using hardwoods, softwoods, decking, cladding or plywood.

For complete confidence in creating a sustainable building project, PEFC offers project certification. This is based on the total input of PEFC-certified raw material to the whole project and enables businesses to make a single claim regarding the timber products or group of products used.
