As part of the Benfield ATT Group timbertecs is proud to have its roots in environmentalism and sustainable development and became the first Engineered Timber Structures company to hold FCS Chain of Custody for entire timber structures. This means the issue of ‘legally sourced’ timber is addressed and ensures a fully sustainable timber frame.
It has come to our attention that some Timber Frame companies in the UK are claiming FSC-Certification of their structures. This is only a valid claim IF the Timber Frame company holds a valid Chain of Custody Certificate. The FSC is a vigorous standard, ensuring careful management of our world's forests. By making these false claims they cannot guarantee FSC-Certified timber frame and are diluting and endangering our forests and the worthy efforts of the FSC name.
Whether you are looking for a supply only timber frame or a full ‘turn key’ service The Benfield ATT group is committed to helping you achieve the very best in sustainable development.
Reducing Carbon in the Construction Industry
The Code for Sustainable Homes is here, and its aim? To ensure a reduction in the massive CO² levels produced by our development, use and decommissioning of buildings. The whole process of building and use must be addressed in order to reduce the impact.
The Code seeks to drive a step change in sustainable home building practice, promoting sustainable design, manufacture, construction and use of our homes. The Code is currently voluntary for builders on private land however, the government plans to make this mandatory in the near future.
The timbertecs team has been working hard to provide all of our customers with a comprehensive Code for Sustainable Homes package. Which will help you gain the credits needed for the star ratings you desire.
