Work is Still Needed

Very Stressful time for us all at the moment, Us too work is Still needed in this on going Economic Battle !!!!!

Timber windows trump PVCu in new study !!!!!!

A new study commissioned by The Wood Window Alliance (WWA) confirms that all timber-based window frame materials, including aluminium-clad, are significantly more environmentally-friendly on every measure than PVCu.
The study, conducted by Dr Gillian Menzies at Heriot Watt University, builds on earlier work by Imperial College London and sets a new standard for the whole life analysis of windows.For the first time, the industry can use authoritative data to compare the durability, value and environmental impacts of different window frame materials.The report concludes that, in normal conditions, timber window frames made to WWA specifications offer the best value, with a service life of approximately 56-65 years, and are the most environmentally-friendly choice.For severe exposure, such as high-rise buildings or coastal developments, aluminium-clad and modified timber frames can provide even better value.While the initial cost of PVCu windows is the lowest, all timber-based options offer better long-term value. PVCu window frames are rated as having a planned service life of 25-35 years.The whole life snalysis features a life cycle assessment which shows all timber-based window frames have a Negative Global Warming Potential and can save considerable amounts of CO2."The results show emphatically that in each of the scenarios Heriot Watt examined, wood, or wood-based materials offer longer life, better value and greater environmental benefits than PVCu," WWA chairman Sean Parnaby said."For the first time, we have solid, authoritative evidence to back up what we always believed was true - that wood is the best all-round window frame material."This research will challenge industry perceptions about the use of timber window frames, particularly around the use of aluminium-clad windows in large-scale projects in moderate to severe building conditions."

Why you should consider "Wood First"21 September 2012
Wood for Good, the UK timber industry’s sustainability campaign or which the British Woodworking Federation is a strong supporter, has launched its 2012 campaign: “Wood First”.The campaign calls for the introduction of a “Wood First” rule in local authority planning guidance. This would require sustainably sourced wood to be considered, where feasible, as the primary construction material in all new-build and refurbishment projects. The organisation states that this will help the UK meet local, national and sectoral targets for carbon reduction.

WHY WOOD?

WHY WOOD?
A very important responsibility of "SpecialityWoods" is the environment. So often overlooked, the world's forests serve as a buffer to protect against global warming. Deforestation is a threat to woods' natural habitat, which is why only the most sustainable woods should be logged.REGENERATION NOT DEFORESTATIONTwenty percent of global carbon emissions come from deforestation. Helping counter this destruction, forest regeneration renews tree cover by claiming the land to allow trees to grow naturally.

"HMRC turns the screw on builders in latest crackdown"

Builders could see their bank balances subside as they have moved to the top of the taxman’s targeted campaign list.

HM Revenue & Customs has announced that it will this year target tradespeople working in the home improvement market giving them an opportunity to come forward and declare unpaid tax.
