Certifications play a very important role, especially in the sectors, where the quality of the material can affect human’s health or life. Built sector and load bearing construction materials belong in this group and a certification can help the investor (to be sure what he is buying), and architect or builder to specify technical characteristics of the material. HWZ International is proud to be the first company who has certified spruce rough sawn timber and laminated beams and the first who certified Cross Laminated Construction system (Novatop CLT) in South Africa.
