When it comes to sustainability our actions speak louder than words.
Code for Sustainable Homes
Pasquill are the only UK timber engineering company able to offer a full range of panelised roof solutions. Panelised roofs can be installed in hours and provide a thermally insulated envelope, cutting heat-loss and therefore carbon emissions, boosting the home’s energy-efficiency. Our innovative Smartoof® interlocking roofing system was used in the Barratt Zero-Carbon Green House.
The timber and timber products that we use in our truss, I-beam and Posi-joist manufacture is PEFC™/FSC® certified chain of custody. This means it comes from independently verified legal and sustainable sources. We can provide the paperwork that proves the journey taken by our timber from the forest to you.
Using certified timer in your projects not only safeguards the world’s valuable timber stocks but also helps your projects gain valuable points in the materials and sourcing areas in the Code for Sustainable Homes.
The auditors of our Chain of Custody scheme are BM TRADA and the schemes are approved by the UK government and recognised by BRE and the Eco Home assessment scheme. View our certificates here: FSC
Our policy on waste is simple. Wherever possible we recycle or reduce our waste and continuously look to increase our positive impact on the environment. View our environmental policy
Wherever possible off-cuts are made into smaller truss sections and the remaining untreated timber waste is collected and recycled into other timber related products or used as bio-mass fuel.
This not only gives you peace of mind that you are dealing with a responsible supplier but also by using our engineered timber it means you don’t have to deal with the costly headache of getting rid of roof and floor related site waste.
