Architectural Round Up

Architecture Round Up

Australian Sustainable Hardwoods are very happy to announce Briggs Veneers as manufacturer of GOODWOOD brand Victorian Ash veneers

Architectural Round Up- lots of projects underway and more in the pipeline. Jonathan Rugg is waiting for our updated CertClad systems to be signed off and we are being told this should be completed in early January.  Once this has been done we will load up the new versions onto our web site as well as update the Masterspec versions. We are working through developing and adding a further codemark certified cladding system which would significantly reduce the cost of using Accoya for horizontal cladding. We had hoped to launch this before Xmas but it seems now it will be a first quarter venture.

Lots of American White Oak on the interior of this bach. Hot Water Beach design & Build

The year has seen some wonderful jobs concluded and the shots below are of a house we supplied American White Oak for a stair case and battens as well as panelling and ceilings as well as cladding in Western Red Cedar. a showcase for good design and great trade skills as well. Chris at Hot Water Beach Design has done a  fabulous job.

Daniel Marshall did a great design job on the house in Bleakhouse Rd as below and we supplied a bunch of Accoya for the windows. Renall Doors and Windows made a fantastic job of complex designs and shapes.

Worlds first carbon positive pre-fab house designed by architecture firm - Archibiox. Features Healthy and High Grade sustainable materials (such as GoodWood Victorian Ash windows).

Interesting to note and see more and more Codemark certified products and systems in the Building process. we as noted above are updating our manuals and systems and have a new system in the pipeline so watch this space for more to come in 2016. The past year has seen a number of certclad jobs and the number of plans using certclad continue to grow strongly.

Accoya and Timspec are partnering up with a number of coating companies to develop paint and stain systems for Accoya weather boards and decking. To date we have a stain ( or Exterior Oil) specification for coating Accoya with Woca and a paint specification from Dulux and Resene. The Resene specification is being reviewed. Check out the comprehensive information and details at under downloads.

/imagesdb/Issue/d75b42f9-772a-43f1-a11b-6719e30b728c.jpgSupply chains
Supply chains are groaning at demand for key items. The growth in demand after the GFC has been slow and has seen a large number of sawmills here in NZ and elsewhere close and go broke. This is leading to shortages in supply as the remaining suppliers struggle to cope.
/imagesdb/Issue/b5dc470d-607c-417f-8cf4-bd6d27a1af74.jpgBuilding Activity
Data we see coming through suggest continuing demand for building materials and weather boards as an example are flying out the door. So prospects for Building Supply merchants should be okay.
