At British Hardwoods we have always been strict in sourcing timber only from accredited suppliers, sawmills or timber merchants across Europe, North America and Canada that are either certified by PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) or FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). As well as being mindful of our timber supply, we also recycle all our timber waste and are totally self-sufficient with the Talbotts C4 Boiler producing green heat, and by utilising 10 tonnes of wood shavings per week, we achieve a zero net gain in CO2 with no fossil fuels burnt whatsoever. We are proud to employ a local workforce of hardworking people and offer a rolling programme of apprenticeships which train and develop local youngsters wishing to start a career in the wood industry.
At Cilfiegan sawmill we strongly believe in sourcing our logs from local Welsh and English forests to benefit local businesses and reduce the environmental and economic costs that come with haulage. Woodlands and forestry play a vital role in the UK’s landscape and provide habitat for many different species in the plant and animal kingdom, as well as absorbing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air to balance atmospheric gases. Cilfiegan sawmill is proud to be a supplier of FSC certified UK timber which shows our commitment to the environment and the future of British woodlands. We have also invested in photovoltaic solar energy panels on the roof of our sawmill to power our large machinery which require a significant amount of electricity every day. This way we can operate by producing our own renewable energy to inevitably become a more sustainable business.
Cohousing communities are intentional communities, created and run by their residents. Each household has a self-contained, private home as well as shared community space. Residents come together to manage their community, share activities, and regularly eat together. Cohousing is a way of resolving the isolation many people experience today, recreating the neighbourly support of the past. This can happen anywhere, in your street or starting a new community using empty homes or building new. Cohousing communities can be inter-generational, welcoming anyone of any age and any family structure, or specifically to cater for people who are older or are communities of common interest, for example for women or LGBT groups.

At English Oak Buildings we are committed to only using British green oak that has been sustainably sourced. We are a proud member of the Association of Environmentally Conscious Builders – a network that shares and promotes the best practice for environmentally sustainable building. One of the key reasons that green oak is deemed to be one of the most environmentally responsible and sustainably viable materials is due to the low embodied energy used. This is the amount of energy needed to bring the material to use, including extraction, transport, and then disposal. Because we use locally sourced timber, the embodied energy is much lower than that used by alternatives like PVC and steel.
