Why Choose Timber?

When it comes to the construction of residential, commercial and industrial buildings, they need to stand the test of time.
For centuries, wood has proved that it has the necessary resilience and strength while offering unique advantages over steel and concrete. In commercial spaces, wood not only offers outstanding durability but introduces the much-desired aesthetic warmth and style once absent from such cold and harsh environments.
Despite being a lightweight material, timber often outperforms steel when it comes to breaking length, allowing it to support its own weight.
Wood has a natural resistance to electrical conduction when effectively dried- often between 7 and 12% for most timber species.

Environmental Advantages

Sunshine Coast Timber: During a time where environmental concerns are high, using sustainable timber materials offer a myriad of benefits.


We have been building with timber materials for thousands of years, thus, timber is a sustainable and a truly renewable building material. Unlike various concretes and metal construction materials, wood is a material that can be sustainably grown and harvested. Allowing for the natural growth of timber products greatly benefit the environment they are in by improving the soil and removing carbon dioxide from the air.

Readily Processed:

Timber production cost significantly less than that of its concrete and metal counterparts and are quicker to process and manufacture, making construction quick and easy.

Energy Efficiency:

Wood helps to minimise energy consumption in several ways. Timber has natural insulating properties and can help reduce energy needs when it is used in windows, doors and floors. Wood has a higher insulation rating than steel and plastic, thus requiring less energy consumption to maintain heating and cooling. .
