This best practice guide highlights key considerations when specifying both high-end property refurbishment and new build in terms of performance, durability and sustainability legacy. It will enable architects, designers, engineers and project managers to make informed decisions, manage risks, control costs and develop high-quality projects.

After summarising the sustainability and performance credentials of timber and timber products, the book's three sections then cover the uses of timber in refurbishment, in new build and in furniture. A series of case studies, with colour illustrations and diagrams, describe the challenges, options and solutions inherent in the use of timber both internally and externally.
Topics covered include: Versatility & visual impact of timber ; Sustainability ; Material characteristics; TImber in refurbishment; New build; Furniture.
