Life enhancing and
a sustainable future

Reclaimed wood carries its history on every panel, each scratch and scar, each stain from its previous life. If only it could speak, just imagine the stories it would tell.
“Wood is universally beautiful to man.
It is the most humanly intimate of all materials”
-Frank Lloyd Wright

Why specify recycled wood?

It takes 13x more energy to produce 1 cubic meter of virgin lumber then it does to salvage.

Lower carbon emissions

During growth, wood absorbs 1 ton of carbon per cubic meter, and stores it during it's lifetime. By keeping the same timber in circulation we avoid releasing
CO2 into the atmosphere.

Healthy environment

Studies show that exposure to wood buildings creates similar health benefits to those created by spending time in nature. by changing our concrete surroundings to wood we are increasing the quality of life.

Incorporating heritage

By reusing old local wood into the new buildings, we are finding new ways to incorporate the past into our future. Locally sourced wood from demolition will find continuity into sustainable projects.

Three trillion board feet storing 7B tons of carbon

Three trillion board feet of lumber and timber sawn in the last century still stands in existing buildings today in the US.

Reclaimed wood supports wellness in the built environment

Reclaimed wood can be used for Architectural and Structural applications such as Framing, Engineered Lumber, Mass Timber, Facade, and Flooring

From the demolition site to the building site

We source our reclaimed lumber directly from demolition and construction sites. Our machines will remove metal contaminants and damaged pieces, delivering high quality reclaimed lumber.
