        • Celebrating Certified Timber at Ecobuild 2014


          Three of the world's leading forest certification organisations will be sharing a stand at Ecobuild 2014 (4-6 March) to educate visitors on a wide range of issues surrounding the use and supply of legal and sustainable timber in the UK market. Joining PEFC UK on Stand S940 will be the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) and the Malaysian Timber Certification Council (MTCC).

          This year will see PEFC UK promoting the benefits to building designers and developers of pursuing the highest level of assurance for their projects through PEFC Project Certification. Earlier this year, Kingsgate House, West London, provided 43 affordable residential units in PEFC-certified cross laminated timber, with the timber acting as a natural, low carbon and renewable alternative to steel and concrete. The Project Certification of this construction project is a global first for PEFC and provides a high profile example of the value of using certified timber at scale on a major project, with the CLT bringing many benefits to a project based in a densely populated and busy part of London.

          Alun Watkins, National Secretary of PEFC UK says: "This has been an exciting year so far for PEFC and we see the Kingsgate House Project Certification success story as the first of many new developments in 2014 for PEFC."
