Timber is by nature a renewable resource when managed effectively. Its’ variety, strength and working flexibility is hard to beat and its’ warmth makes it incredibly liveable. The timber industry in Australia is well regulated, with a strong focus on managing growth and regrowth. As required, Calco Trusses and Timber sources product from outside Australia, adhering to strict importation regulations regarding work practices and timber sustainability.
The process of prefabrication does not use high volumes of energy / water. Our equipment is kept current and well maintained with an onsite maintenance team, thereby ensuring the most efficient use of energy available. Our sheds are lit with low energy LED lighting and our administration processes are continuously improved to reduce paper use.
Calco Trusses and Timber’s approach to waste management is to:
Factory efficiencies ensure the most appropriate length of timber is used each time, minimizing waste and containing costs.
Choice Energy installed solar panels to cover our shed rooves, reducing our reliance on Victoria's power resources and protecting us from price increases. Unused power is fed back into the grid.
