Swartland | Col Timbers | Mouldings, Par, Cornices, Awnings & Finished Products

About Col Timbers PERFECTLY ENGINEERED Wood is perfectly crafted by nature. Col has taken this one step further by engineering the timber to create products that are both sustainable and beautiful in your home. Col products are laminated with waterproof adhesive to improve strength and stability. Finger-joints allow for longer lengths of clear timber, helps to minimise lateral movement and ensures the timber retains its natural beauty over time. SUSTAINABLE RESOURCE Timber is a sustainable and renewable resource. The more wood we use, the more forests we grow. Not only does wood bring warmth into your home, but it’s also the best choice for the environment. PINE Our pine is sourced from local plantations that are FSC ®-certified. FSC® certification ensures that products come from well-managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. This aligns the vision of saving the world’s forests for future generations – Forests For All Forever ® HARDWOOD Our hardwood is sourced from sawmills internationally, where governments in these regions have implemented strict sustainability policies and compulsory harvesting programmes. These policies protect the environment and forest ecosystems as well as the interests of local communities.

Deutsche Bank Urban Age Award Cape Town winner

The winner of the Deutsche Bank Urban Age Award (DBUAA) Cape Town 2012 is Mothers Unite from Lavender Hill. Chosen by an independent jury from a pool of 254 entries and a shortlist of eight finalists, the project will receive a prize of R750 000.  The winning project – selected as that which most benefitted local residents through an improved urban environment – was founded in 2007 in a mother’s home. Mothers Unite provides a safe haven from the gangsterism, drugs and violence that are part and parcel of street and home life in the area. Three afternoons a week, in a ‘village’ in the grounds of the City’s Seawinds multipurpose hall, 120 children between the ages of 3 and 15 are provided with alternative activities such as storytelling, computer literacy, food garden training, art therapy, sports and play. Built with donated shipping containers, the village is made up of a library, kitchen, office, sheltered area, playground and food garden. The Mothers Unite project addresses the family unit and encourages family participation and a shared commitment to community development, providing a support base for the family and a safe place for children to play, explore and develop.

Deutsche Bank Urban Age Award Cape Town entries

The fifth Deutsche Bank Urban Age Award (DBUAA) – in Cape Town this year – has received the highest number of submissions – 254 – since the award programme was established in 2007.  The submissions reflect the vibrancy and creativity of Cape Town’s citizens in tackling the social and urban challenges of their city. From a range of social and geographical backgrounds, the projects indicate that strong and diverse alliances are being built to improve the urban environment and quality of life. The support of universities, local authorities and government programmes and the cooperation of different community organisations have been important factors in the success of the projects.  The Cape Town projects are generally of a high quality and range across categories such as education, culture, environment, sanitation, public space, local economies and social integration.

It offers a prize of R750 000 for the winning project.

Jean-Pierre Desvaux De Marigny from the University of KwaZulu-Natal wins the 30th Corobrik Architectural Awards

Jean-Pierre Desvaux De Marigny of the University of KwaZulu-Natal is the winner of the 30th Corobrik Architectural Student of the Year Awards. New and distinctive ideas, a high standard of technical skill, creative flair, a good grasp of sustainability issues and a clear understanding of the complex role of built structures within an evolving urban environment were just some of the reasons why Jean-Pierre Desvaux De Marigny from the University of KwaZulu-Natal won first prize at the Corobrik Architectural Awards in Johannesburg this evening. The competition, which has spanned three decades, has seen considerable changes in how young professionals in the architectural professional approach the built environment. Today, technological advances and sustainability imperatives are driving creativity. Innovation with a view to lightening the built environment’s environmental footprint together with an innate understanding of social and cultural imperatives within South Africa are just some of the reasons that this year’s judges singled out De Marigny’s dissertation.
