Terrazzo made from offcut timber from unavoidable sources, for use in everyday surfaces and furniture.

Offcut timber, wood dust and mineral powders which form the majority of the material inputs for Timber Terrazzo are sourced from unavoidable waste that is typically impractical to recycle, particularly for small businesses. This ensures that the process does not detract from existing recycling efforts and creates a truly circular economy.

What is a digital material passport?

A material passport is a digital document listing all the materials that are included in a product or construction during its life cycle in order to facilitate circularity decisions in supply chain management at the end of the building life.

At Cundall, we want to create a passport to materials/products that will also provide information before its use so designers and contractors are capable of making conscious decisions of products that could affect the embodied carbon and health well-being of a project, facilitating the inclusion of the best low carbon and/ healthy materials that align with their design.
