Certified Timber

Consumers are increasingly demanding that the timber and wood products they buy come from sustainably managed sources.

 

Gowan Lea Timbers is committed to providing our clients with the option to purchase timber from sustainable sources: planted, grown and harvested in accordance with the strictest codes of practice and consistent with the world’s leading environmental standards.

 

If this is what you want, always buy certified timber and timber products.

 

 

Gowan Lea Timbers Pty Ltd offers a range of 100% Chain of Custody certified timber products including:

 

  • Structural sawn hardwood and poles
  • Hardwood decking, screening and T&G flooring
  • Engineered Wood Products and pine framing
  • KD hardwood
  • Plywood & Particle board flooring
  • Pine mouldings
  • Cypress

 

We are particularly proud of our green hardwood mill (Mary Valley Timbers) who have recently achieved Chain of Custody Certification under the Australian Forest Certification Scheme (AFS Certification # 466). AFS is the only forest certification scheme recognized under Australian Standard AS 4707:2006. To our knowledge, no other green hardwood mill in SEQ has achieved this standard.

 

All of our sawn hardwood is sourced from sustainably managed forests within a 200km radius of our Gympie sawmill. This contributes to the economic growth of local communities and greatly reduces greenhouse gas emissions associated with heavy transport.

"It comes down to experience more than anything. Obviously we look for competitive pricing, like most businesses; but more importantly, the company wants suppliers and subcontractors who actually know what they are talking about."

Chris Stevenson, Project Manager, Hutchinson Builders

"Supply time on short contract periods was critical and we found Gowan Lea Timbers worked hard to satisfy the project timing and quality requirements. They also provided a proactive and appropriate response to site issues that arose from time to time through the project."

Rob Mowatt, Director and Construction Manager. ARK Construction Group Pty Ltd

"The personalised service we receive is particularly important to us as our project managers know that they will talk to the same person every time they ring, and that they can quickly get a response to urgent requests for material or information."

Bob Longworth, Operations Manager. Calty Constructions
