FSC® (UK) Spotlights APES Playground Project

We’re feeling proud of our FSC reclaimed timber! This month’s Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®) UK newsletter headlines our range of reclaimed hardwood, and features one of our favourite case studies…the Kite Park Playground designed by APES.  The award-winning design includes Greenheart we reclaimed for Bam Nuttall during the 2018 Woolwich Ferry upgrade project. It is so great to be sharing this best practice with the FSC® community. 🌴♻️👏

Scroll through our picture gallery – Discover more about the sustainable design, created by John O’Driscoll and his award–winning Adventure Playground Engineers (APES) for Berkeley Homes.

If ecological responsibility is high on your agenda then you’ll be glad to hear that our timber yard is stacked high with an impressive range of reclaimed tropical timber including Greenheart (as specified by APES), Jarrah, Ekki and Opepe. Each piece has a unique FSC® certification number providing a transparent and traceable chain of custody, no matter its source.

We’re on hand to discuss project challenges, and help you find a way to increase the % of reclaimed timber specified through 2020.
