WESTFIELD CASE STUDY
Westfield Coomera was the first greenfield site development for the Sentre Group in over a decade and timber was utilised as a design element in both interior and exterior built environments.
CUTEK®’s dedicated architectural representative was brought in to assist the architect, designers and builders achieve the desired colour and protection level for timber fittings that were integrated into the overall design.
We care about your project, no matter how big or small. If your project uses timber, we want to be a part of it.
We have an extensive Research and Development program (based in Queensland, Australia), that ensures our wood protection technology is always progressive and insightful, using the best resources and know-how available, to make wood protection products that ACTUALLY WORK.
We formulate bespoke timber protection solutions to meet the unique project needs for architects and designers across Australia. Contact us to get the right solution for your project.
Being sustainable or green has become a slogan, but at CUTEK® it is part of our DNA. The very purpose for the creation of CUTEK® products was to maximise the service life of timber. It is a simple equation: extension of the service life of timber = less trees cut down as their replacement.
CUTEK® products are also manufactured with the use of high-grade recycled raw materials and renewable resources where possible, which decreases waste stream and incinerations. Our internal systems are paperless, and have been since 2012 and we recycle manufacturing materials.
CUTEK® is committed to formulating products with lower Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). This means more protective components penetrate and STAY permanently in the coated timber and less VOCs are released into the environment than many of our direct competitor’s products.
Beyond these internal measures, CUTEK® also gives back. We are champions for the ecological use and long-term protection of timber. We are partnered with One Tree Planted and plant 1 tree for every can of CUTEK® timber oil sold worldwide. At CUTEK® sustainability isn’t a slogan, it is in our DNA.
ONE TREE PLANTED
Our CUTEK® sponsored trees are planted wherever that can was sold, all around the world. For example:
