But the report merely suggests that there is a need for “generating more demand” for British wood by improving “wood culture” among the general public.

Although timber is the construction industry’s ultimate renewable resource, this does not mean it should be sent out as biomass for energy production, or worse landfill, after its first use. Many timber components can be either reused in their original form or recycled into new materials such as chipboard, keeping them at their highest Author: Lisa Carnwell.

The Scheme is proud to support Grown in Britain for its work in promoting British-grown timber products to the construction industry. Not only will this help build a more sustainable and eco-friendly industry, but it will also breathe new life into the UK’s woodlands. Download a free preview of this book.

The Manual provides guidance on the structural design of single-storey and medium-rise multi-storey buildings and supports the design of timber building structures to BS EN (Eurocode 5), together with its supporting codes and standards, within the UK.

According to the Forestry Commission Timber Utilisation Statistics Report, only around 15% of the sawn softwood the construction industry uses is sourced from the UK. Although there are no specific figures for hardwood used in construction, the Forestry Commission Statistics state that UK-sourced hardwood made up less than 10% of the.

Timber frame construction, the acknowledged ‘bible’ for timber frame, has been in demand consistently since its first edition in This 5th edition responds to further increases in thermal standards, evolving alternative methods of timber frame construction and the industry’s migration from BS (now withdrawn) to Eurocode 5.

This guest blog post is by Charlie Law, Managing Director at Sustainable Construction article was previously published in the TRADA Timber Industry Yearbook. The UK consumes circa 16 million m3 of sawn wood and panel products annually, the vast majority of which is believed to be used either directly or indirectly by the construction industry.

With much of the British-grown timber supply base on board, along with major constructor contractors, Grown in Britain is now concentrating on connecting British timber supply chains. The campaign recently signed a strategic promotional partnership with the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) and is working closely with the British Woodworking.

About Wood for Good and Woodfest Reading. Wood for Good is the timber industry’s campaign to promote the use of wood in design and construction. The Structural Timber Association (STA) promotes the use of structural timber products and systems within the UK construction industry.

Formerly known as the UK Timber Frame Association, the enlarged Association now includes suppliers of integrated hybrid solutions, including SIPS, Glulam and CLT products, as well as traditional timber frame kits. The Timber Research and Development Association (TRADA) continues to be an internationally-recognised centre of excellence for the specification and use of timber and wood products.

Brettstapel, also known as dowellam, is a massive timber construction system, fabricated exclusively from softwood timber posts connected with hardwood timber is a relatively simple method of construction that exploits low grade timber, not normally suitable for use in construction, to form load bearing solid timber wall, floor and roof panels.

This book is an easy-to-use handbook, providing architects and builders with up-to-date guidance on managing loft conversions and ensuring they achieve compliance with the Building Regulations. It brings together solutions offered in the Approved Documents and third tier guidance, such as industry literature, in one concise and fully.

The first book to provide an overview of sustainability and concrete, Green Building with Concrete: Sustainable Design and Construction surveys the material’s history in the green building movement and presents state-of-the-art methodologies and best practices. British-grown timber, often in the shape of carcassing and decking, is already an unseen element in many builders’ merchants’ ranges.

To underline the marketing advantage of British-grown timber as a merchant differentiator, Grown In Britain has recently produced a new, brief Guide for the merchant sector, freely downloadable here.
