The obvious pieces Eco Timber can supply from these recovery projects are the exceptional natural-edged patina post and beam sections. These timber components typically offer great length specification, and come in highly sought after ‘chunky’ dimensions. The timber is typically the best class rating (class 1,) and is well and truly seasoned at this point, making them ideal for both structural and visual use. However, the not so obvious uses are where Eco Timber has forged its name as an innovator in this niche area of the timber industry.
This inventive company doesn’t just see timber, they see local history captured in each section, but mainly they see art and a unique opportunity to create something stylish yet functional for your next project. Eco Timber ensures that as much as possible is salvaged from these types of historical landmarks, and that salvage is used in the best possible ways.
Nothing that is in limited supply should be wasted, and opportunities for these types of recovery projects are becoming few and far between. It is with this view that Eco Timber takes every care to ensure timbers from recovery projects are given the respect they deserve, so that they can be appreciated in a new project for many more years to come.
Take these wonderful examples recovered from the Mornington Pier; they signify heritage, simplicity and beauty, while still retaining their organic origins. These timbers would make a clever statement in any design that is looking for that little extra something that only a unique timber can provide; offering timeless appeal for the years ahead.
