Reducing Carbon Footprint – A Case Study: Cardrona Cabin

Cardrona Cabin Vulcan Screening Abodo Wood
Abodo’s <a href="/stories/projects/cardrona-cabin-wanaka-new-zealand">Cardona Cabin</a> makes extensive use of Vulcan timber in the interior and exterior, storing considerable amounts of CO2e.

The cabin makes extensive use of Vulcan Cladding, Screening, Panelling and structural elements.

Predominantly manufactured from glue laminated sections, the Vulcan timber product stores a considerable amount of CO2e.

Over 9 tonnes of carbon is stored in the Vulcan timber elements alone, dramatically offsetting the small amounts of concrete and structural steel used in the building.
