The humble power pole is getting a makeover, creating a timeless masterpiece. Nash Timbers of Sydney -- leaders in new, sustainable and recycled timber -- are transforming the power poles into unique architectural products including recycled hardwood flooring, decking, cladding, staircase and furniture material, and spectacular feature beams, for homes and commercial environments. According to David Nash, director of Nash Timbers, each of the power poles that have been decommissioned and deemed unserviceable by Energy Australia has a unique identification tag denoting the characteristics of the pole. These unique characteristics gives a project a chain of custody and homeowners get a piece of history to keep, remodeled to suit their requirements.
