The 2023 Sustainability Awards are fast approaching with one nomination hailing from the Northern Rivers area in NSW. Northern Rivers Recycled Timber has been shortlisted for the prestigious awards in the Innovation: Green Building Material category.

This recognition highlights the company’s outstanding commitment to sustainability, environmentally responsible practices, and its dedication to considering the impact of its products over its entire lifetime.

The Sustainability Summit Awards celebrate and honour businesses and initiatives leading the way in sustainable practices and innovation. Northern Rivers Recycled Timber is proud to be among the exceptional companies that have been shortlisted for this prestigious award.

Northern Rivers Recycled Timber, founder, Claudia Mitchell expressed her excitement about being shortlisted for this prestigious award, saying, “This is our first award shortlist, and we are thrilled to be recognised for our dedication to sustainability and innovation. Our Modular Wall Systems represent a significant step toward a more sustainable construction industry.”

Their innovative Modular Wall Systems have revolutionised the construction industry by seamlessly combining sustainability, functionality, and aesthetics. These wall systems cater to commercial and residential projects, simplifying the design and installation process for architects, designers, builders, and DIY enthusiasts.

 Crafted from carefully selected recycled and reclaimed timbers, sourced from a variety of origins such as demolished structures and disused railway sleepers, these panels offer a distinct blend of character and history. Their modular design simplifies assembly, allowing for swift and efficient installation while minimising material wastage. Despite their modular nature, each timber piece boasts its own unique characteristics, resulting from both natural and human-made elements, ensuring a personalised and distinctive aesthetic.

These panels can be further customised with complementary finishes, including wire brushing, sanding, staining, painting, or coating, which not only enhance the natural beauty of the timbers but also add depth and visual interest. Each piece becomes a truly one-of-a-kind addition, making it an appealing choice for those seeking stylish and eco-friendly design solutions.

“These wall systems provide numerous advantages, from bespoke appearances and fast installation to minimal waste generation and easy transportation. Our commitment to sustainable manufacturing practices further underscores the eco-friendliness of these modular wall systems,” added Ms Mitchell.

By incorporating these recycled timber panels into new builds or renovations, Northern Rivers Recycled Timber is enhancing the charm and character of spaces and promoting a greener and more sustainable construction industry. Their commitment to reducing waste, reusing valuable resources, and reducing the demand for new timber is evident in the innovative Modular Wall Systems.

The Sustainability Summit Awards ceremony will take place on November 9, 2023, in Sydney, where Northern Rivers Recycled Timber eagerly anticipates the announcement of the winner in the Green Building Material category.
