While there is a shift towards using steel structures to build residential and commercial properties, cypress wood is still favoured by many in Australia. This is especially the case for innovative and sustainable construction businesses that value wooden constructions over steel constructions. A wooden construction offers a cost-effective solution, an environmentally-friendly option, more jobs for forestry businesses and a greater need to plant trees.
High-quality cypress glue-laminated beams are versatile, cheap and structurally effective. These materials allow homes and businesses to operate from properties that have been constructed from light-weight materials. This offers flexibility in the design of the build as the property can be shaped according to unique specifications. The cypress material is cheaper than steel and it offers similar structural qualities when the laminate is added.
The use of cypress in building structures supports Victoria’s goal to build sustainable properties. Cypress wood is a natural product and can be refined without high electricity and transportation costs. This allows home and business owners to fabricate their properties from renewable natural resources that has been manufactured with lower green house gas emissions throughout the supply chain.
In addition, cypress materials create jobs in Australia. Forestry organisations are struggling and a growing demand for cypress timber helps support businesses and families in rural areas. The construction industry is thriving, and responsibly sourced materials not only protect the environment but help strengthen the economy.
At Australian Treated Pine, we supply quality cypress products that can be modified for use in construction. Our timber supplies are known among residential and commercial building companies and are equally favoured among steel counterparts because of the cost, lighter-weight, greater flexibility in use and similar structural qualities.
