Two building projects in the Ponta do Ouro Marine Reserve and the Maputo Special Reserve demonstrate that where environmental protection is paramount, the terrain is difficult, resources are limited and time is of the essence, treated timber is the only practical construction material.  This is the view of Gerard Busse, marketing manager of Arch Wood Protection which is committed to the interests of the timber sector and the effective use of treated timber in Southern Africa.

The versatility of treated SA pine as a structural material was once again demonstrated with its extensive use in the Tintswalo Atlantic Boutique Hotel in Hout Bay, Cape Town. With unsurpassed views of The Sentinel, the hotel is situated on a pebbled private beach. It offers 10 luxury suites and a presidential suite, within metres of the waves. All the suites are linked to the main hotel by a boardwalk and the main building includes a restaurant overlooking Hout Bay.
