Emergency housing supplied to homeless people in Georgia following the country’s brief war with Russia features Arch Timber Protection’s Resistol and Tanalith E preservative treatment.

A project to build 300 houses in just 180 days on the outskirts of the village of Gori was funded with help from the German government.

The single family houses, both semi-detached and detached dwellings, are each 50m² in size and comprise all the usual domestic amenities, including a modern kitchen and bathroom.

Arch customer Wood Service, based in Georgia, supplied all the timber for the roofing and structural members, which were treated with Resistol.

The exterior timbers, such as those used for the cladding and balconies, were treated with Tanalith E.
