Nullarbor Sustainable Timber were approached in 2004 by The City of Greater Melbourne to be involved in the innovative environmentally friendly project in Victoria.
The team at Nullarbor Sustainable Timber were asked to supply enough recycled material capable of creating a screen to clad one entire facade of a ten story city high rise. These timbers were acquired from some 200 derelict and demolished houses.
20,000 lineal meters of 4”x 2” house frame timbers were utilised in this project. 270,000 old and rusty nails were removed by hand and sent for recycling.
These timbers without a value added demand such as the CH2 project may never have been bought back to life and would have most likely found its way to land fill. Not one tree has been felled (plantation or otherwise) for the CH2 Screen Project.
