WESTFIELD, an AUSTRALIAN CASE STUDY
Westfield Coomera was the first greenfield site development for the Sentre Group in over a decade and wood was utilized as a design element in both interior and exterior built environments (Coomera, QLD, Australia).
CUTEK®’s dedicated architectural representative was brought in to assist the architect, designers and builders achieve the desired color and protection level for wood fittings that were integrated into the overall design.
We care about your project, no matter how big or small. If your project uses wood, 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 wood protection solutions to meet the unique project needs for architects and designers across the US. 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 maximize the service life of wood. It is a simple equation: extension of the service life of wood = 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.
Beyond these internal measures, CUTEK® also gives back. We are champions for the ecological use and long-term protection of wood. We are partnered with One Tree Planted and plant 1 tree for every can of CUTEK® wood oil sold worldwide. At CUTEK® sustainability isn’t a slogan, it is in our DNA.
WE HAVE PARTNERED WITH ONE TREE PLANTED AND ARE COMMITTED TO PLANT 1 TREE FOR EVERY CAN OF CUTEK® OIL SOLD AROUND THE WORLD.
