Cork - Natural Born Technology
Responding to huge demand from our customers, eager to learn more about the amazing sustainability and wellbeing qualities of cork, Quadrant has created a CPD presentation, which we are delighted to make available to A&D practices. The presentation, entitled “Cork – Natural Born Technology”, helps participants understand where cork comes from, the craft of harvesting it without felling or harming trees, how it supports unique flora and fauna (cork forests are a recognised biodiversity hotspot), and cork’s remarkable ability to sequester carbon. Detail is shared on how the composition and structure of this renewable, recyclable material results in unique properties for use in architecture and interior finishes. We give examples of its applications and how these properties translate into a carbon-negative, commercial flooring that contributes to the design and construction of healthy, environmentally compliant buildings.
Recork - Nature's Wonder Material
Due to incredible interest in our latest cork flooring collection, Quadrant has designed a CPD presentation to introduce you to the main ingredient of Recork flooring. Our 40-minute presentation takes you on a journey into the cork oak montado, where you’ll meet the amazing tree that is reversing global warming, as well as many other species that inhabit this biodiverse landscape. You’ll follow cork’s green production process, from harvest through to bottle stopper creation, and see how waste is used to craft sustainable products, like Recork. You’ll also explore the positive impact of cork flooring on health and wellness due to acoustic insulation, underfoot comfort and minimal chemical emissions. And of course, there’s plenty of time to ask questions of your own. We hope you come to appreciate Nature’s Wonder Material as much as we do!
