Materials used on school buildings

The Ministry has design requirements for some types of materials used in schools. Installing the right types of glazing, joinery, roofing, and floor coverings to certain specifications will improve their long term performance and help to protect the health and safety of people at the school. You can use timber treated with chromated copper arsenate (CCA) if the risks are managed.
