Timber building material will be the material of choice for the construction projects of the Fraser Coast Council, after this Queensland council became the first to adopt a wood encouragement policy.

Responsibly sourced wood will now be the first preference for construction and refurbishment projects when it is equally fit for use as other materials such as steel and concrete.

Timber Queensland chief executive, Mick Stephens highlighted the importance of the council’s decision in helping recognise that timber is a sustainable material and has a range of environment benefits. He also stated that the use of timber could align with the council’s sustainability goals.
