Tino Rawnsley's presentation

For many years, the UK market has favoured imported timber. A fragmented forestry sector and poor promotion has meant that architects and specifiers have not been given confidence in the look, character and durability of our home grown plantation forestry. The focus on sustainable building materials has highlighted the significant benefits of choosing UK timber, both in terms of embedded carbon caused by transportation across the globe, and the ecological advantages of using locally sourced plantation timber as opposed to that imported from old growth forests. Tino will explore sustainability issues, technical specifications and the practicality of using home grown timber both as cladding and building timbers and as a carbon neutral fuel. Some recent projects supplied by

RWP have been awarded 'Excellent' BREEAM ratings.
