T imber Industry Yearbook 2013

What a year! Forget the rain (if you can!) forget the economic gloom (go on, try!) forget all the other little niggles that really shouldn’t concern you. Remember the Olympics and the Paralympics? Over a month of solid success, not just for the athletes but also for the organisers, the designers and those who built a stunning Olympic venue from an East London wasteland. What a shame the sustainable Olympics featured so little wood. All the timber industry’s efforts to ensure an iconic timber structure on the Olympic park resulted in just two apparent timber structures – the Velodrome and McDonald’s – and although both had timber on the outside neither relied on it for the structure. Of course there was a lot of excellent timber on display but one can’t help feeling that somewhere we could have done more with our opportunity. So what went wrong? Listening to feedback it was all about information and the fear factor. British designers and contractors aren’t generally used to working with wood, they were not confident about managing the risks they saw, so they stayed with the tried and tested – and for a major international event who can blame them? Disappointing as that may be it gives us a very clear idea of what we have to do if we want wood to be more used and better used in construction. The problem wasn’t about people not wanting to use wood in theory; it was about giving them the tools to use it in practice. Lack of familiarity meant that, when the chips were down, wood could not compete. It began in university courses where wood featured much less than competing materials and continued in a work environment where those materials were used by default and allied to a supply chain not really developed to supply the needs of today’s demanding end user. If that situation is to change then TRADA must be a key component in that change. I’m very lucky to be Chairman of TRADA right now. I’m following Mike Cook, our first ever non-timber-trade Chairman. I’m coming into an organisation that’s innovating with things like Timber Expo. An organisation that’s sowing seeds for the future via its work in universities. An organisation that reflects its changed membership focus by giving full voting rights to all its members.



So what are we doing and why do those things excite me? • We’ve defined our role as being to gather, review and make available top quality information and hard data which will increase the use of wood. • We’re focusing more on the needs of the actual specifiers and users of wood – the people who know what they need rather than those who may think they know what others need. • We’ve changed our management structure to help us focus less on the nuts and bolts of running the organisation and more on what our members want us to deliver. • We’re providing a forum at Timber Expo where professionals and producers can meet and share ideas and information face to face. • We’ve appointed someone whose sole role is to go into our universities and give them good quality material, to make sure today’s students are well equipped to work with wood in their professional careers. • We’re working hard to provide more and more hard data, not just about timber’s technical performance but also about all the life-cycle issues that are becoming more important. • Of course we continue to provide an excellent website and telephone service so our members (and their customers) get the information to enable them to use wood and to use it well. There are some things we don’t do. We’re not here to do major advertising and promotion – there are plenty of others doing that. Nor are we here to lobby government, again we leave that to others. What we have done is to sign up to the Timber Industry Accord where there are other organisations who do just those things, and are only too delighted to leave us to get on with what you pay us to do – and what we think we’re good at – that is to continue to provide top quality independent information to help people use wood in the best possible way!

Timber Expo


Stepping up to t he mark TRADA Membership and Marketing Manager Rupert Scott sees Timber Expo 2012 deliver on its promise to be bigger and better Timber Expo 2012 at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry

‘Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.’ So wrote Henry Ford; he could have been talking about this year’s Timber Expo, a tour de force of collaboration between TRADA Technology and Radar Communications, and the thousands of industry professionals, including architects, engineers, contractors and local authorities, who all helped make the show an unprecedented success. TRADA Technology has never been an organisation to rest on its laurels. We planned longer, thought harder and executed better the plans for Timber Expo 2012 – and the feedback from attendees is evidence that this year’s show was a significant improvement on 2011. It was certainly a successful exhibition for TRADA, which played a significant role in organising the show’s most successful elements. Timber Expo 2012 saw an expanded exhibition space, an increased number of visitors, an expert set of Timber Talks seminars plus an impressive list of exhibitors, all coming together to promote timber as one of the most exciting and sustainable construction materials on the marketplace. For everyone that exhibited and attended Timber Expo, one thing was obvious – the 2012 event delivered on its promise to be the only place in the UK for anyone interested in the timber sector. It was also given a new flavour, with the addition of ProTimber 2012 – the timber industry summit – that kicked off proceedings the day before the main halls opened for business. ProTimber 2012 saw timber industry leaders meet to take part in the first of a regular annual gathering to discuss the opportunities ahead for the timber sector. Under the headline banner of ‘one vision one voice’ the afternoon saw serious and informed debate centred on the presentation of two pieces of commissioned research from consultancy Lychgate. The two studies, separated by panel and audience discussion, included the specification and perceptions of timber and an up-to-date review of the steel and concrete sectors. It then addressed how the timber sector can respond, target markets for growth and reinforce its position within the construction market.

Meanwhile, the expanded size and scope of Timber Expo was hailed as an outstanding success by exhibitors and visitors alike and the buzz of the two days was a serious step change from 2011. One of the biggest changes from 2011 was replacing the paid-for In Touch with Timber conference with free seminars. The ‘sold out’ sign might have been metaphorical, but the seminar programme organised by TRADA was a resounding success, with many of the sessions reduced to ‘standing room only’. The Timber Talks seminar programme brought together some of timber’s leading system designers, architects, contractors, merchants, product providers, suppliers and thought leaders to discuss pressing industry issues and hot topics from across the timber world at home and abroad. Delivered across three bespoke theatres, each designed and created especially for Timber Expo by UKSIPS, Frame Wise and Deeside Timberframe with James Jones & Sons, speakers provided a glimpse into the future role and development of timber from forest floor to end-user. One of the most popular seminars was hosted by Ramboll Computational Design’s Harri Lewis, who discussed how the ‘Giraffe’ pavilion, which formed TRADA’s stand, was created and the technology used to develop the form into an easily constructed yet dramatic structure. The quality of the visitors was also excellent – no comments about ‘tyre kickers’ or time wasters, which means everyone visiting the show was serious about the reasons for being there. Of course we always want more visitors. The only way to do this is to keep delivering fresh content, innovation, more products, new ideas and industry information. This is the challenge TRADA has set itself for 2013. We’re already planning on making the show bigger and better again. But, like Henry Ford, we know that working together is the most efficient way to success. We will continue to work with trade institutions, professional bodies and you, our members, to deliver a show to remember in 2013. • For the latest details on Timber Expo 2013 or to pre-register to attend, please visit

Thirst f or knowledge Elizabeth Turner visits universities across the length and breadth of the UK, from Scotland to the south coast and Lincolnshire to North Wales and into Northern Ireland, delivering timber lectures to students and understanding the timber research being carried out in these institutions With the construction sector focusing on sustainable solutions to building due to the increasing examination of the world’s resources, timber clearly has a role to play in providing some of these solutions. The TRADA University Engagement Programme is becoming increasingly popular with university schools of architecture, engineering and construction that are seeking our knowledge and resources.

university design and engineering competitions. These are a great way of inspiring and engaging students as well as focusing on learning about timber and how to design with it. Over the last 25 years TRADA and the North East Timber Trade Association (NETTA) have worked with universities in the north-east of England on a timber engineering/design competition. Christopher Mettem and (in later years) Andy Pitman have judged the competition and this year I will be helping with judging the 2013 competition which is taking place at Northumbria University. Students at Northumbria will be designing a library building in the centre of Newcastle using timber. At their annual dinner, NETTA will award a cash prize to the students who produce the best three designs. More recently, the Dan Kemp Memorial Pavilion, run with sponsorship from Timbmet, has produced a great show of students’ ideas on timber design and two outstanding pieces of work by the winning students, Christian Spendier (2011) and Stephanie Lewis (2012). In 2013, design Unit B will deliver a new pavilion. This year the competition will explore design using timber and examine how architecture students are educated.

Term time has been very busy, with many visits to universities where students are asking searching questions about timber. One of the commonly asked for topics is the sustainability credentials of timber.

As well as forming larger parts of an undergraduate course, these competitions also lend themselves to short pieces of work such as that done recently by Newcastle University architecture students for next year’s British Science Festival.

These visits are vital to the success of the project but are only a part of the University Engagement Programme. Another successful aspect of TRADA’s ongoing work with universities is the support we give to

It is not just architecture students who are competitive though. As part of a module on timber and masonry structures, students at Coventry University worked on a timber engineering project to design, build and

test a glulam beam. This was very successful and students produced some excellent work. The winners were delighted to have won a prize sponsored by TRADA. So it is easy to see that lecturers like competitions as a way of enriching their courses and students strive to win, producing excellent and interesting work. Based on this evidence and with timber being increasingly seen as the sustainable option for construction, TRADA is working on the development of a National Student Timber Design Competition. This is planned to coincide with TRADA’s 80th Anniversary in 2014. Andrew Abbott, TRADA’s Chief Executive, is keen for the competition to explore the science of timber and design, and to provide a piece of excellent design that showcases what can be achieved with this important material. We are developing the details of the competition and we hope to provide a challenge to schools of engineering and architecture within the remit of this exciting project. We will use the knowledge gleaned from a year of university visits and work with the TRADA Board to develop the National Student Timber Design Competition. Of course the teaching of undergraduates and postgraduates is only one part of what takes place at university. The other activity, vital both to each university and to the UK as a whole, is research and TRADA is keen to find out about timber research being carried out. Using the combined minds of university staff to explore new ideas and develop existing ones, everyone from students to industry will benefit. Undergraduate students from both architecture and engineering disciplines are researching topics such as timber bridges and cross-laminated timber for their final year dissertations, with post graduates also examining a wide range of topics. In the UK, the University of Bath, Bangor University and Edinburgh Napier University are regarded as the premier timber research universities, although others also do important work on timber. The 2011 winning entry built full scale at EcoBuild also displaying the models submitted by the other students as their entries

They all have different but complimentary research strands and often work collaboratively on research grant applications, some of which TRADA has been delighted to support. Particular topics under investigation are innovative all-wood connections and the home-grown timber resource and what can be manufactured and built with it. Students from Bath have examined the Douglas fir stocks in the South West. Edinburgh Napier is at the forefront of research in Scotland, working on the Strategic Integrated Research in Timber, looking at Sitka spruce and the Wood Products Innovation Gateway. The Wood Pig project aims to find at least 20 new, commercially viable uses for Scottish grown timber by engaging with Scottish SME’s to find ideas for new timber products, and then apply R&D to develop these ideas into commercial production. Recent success has been achieved with crosslaminated timber and the project is currently looking at the regulatory issues around bringing such a product to market. Overall, the TRADA University Engagement Programme is proving to be successful both at reaching universities and inspiring students to see timber as the material of first choice. TRADA hopes to use this success to facilitate and forge industry/university links and, by the introduction of a National Student Competition, to challenge students and excite the industry.

It ’s time to get social Engage in online conversations, says Paul Wilkinson Social media is about people having conversations online, and such exchanges are the lifeblood of business. Through conversations we ask questions, get feedback, learn about colleagues, collaborate on projects, share news and ideas, gain information, share knowledge, recommend (and get recommended), make new contacts…. If people are taking these conversations online, organisations which block interaction or don’t participate could be missing out.

you in the pub. Social media platforms are completely outside the direct control of your company, so your people need to engage in and influence that online conversation – and know the reputation risks that can arise from loose talk online. You should build on existing guidelines regarding client confidentiality, copyright and appropriate use of email and other corporate IT, and provide training and guidance on responsible use of social media tools. Social media can create communities around your people, places, products, services and events, helping people in your business engage with and influence existing and potential customers, suppliers, employees, media contacts, local residents, conference delegates, and so on. However, organisations also need to be responsive. Social media happens in real-time – so you must be vigilant, agile and able to respond quickly, particularly if someone identifies a problem: unanswered criticism or complaints can leave an indelible negative ‘footprint’ on the web. No wonder that Twitter has become a powerful tool for customer service in many organisations. To hit the ground running, training in business use of social media can be invaluable; a workshop helped TRADA people, for example, identify how to use Twitter and @TRADA_ now has nearly 2,000 followers. Such training can also help identify time-saving ways to re-use content: a blog post, for example, can automatically be shared via Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn – immediately extending the potential audience for that new content.

Clearly some architecture, engineering and construction businesses either regard social media with suspicion (‘social’ may imply non-work) or are just puzzled about its use. But, with Twitter hashtags and Facebook updates quoted by broadcasters, bloggers courted by political parties, and FTSE-listed companies recruiting via LinkedIn, social media is definitely part of mainstream communications. Forward-thinking businesses are adding social tools and techniques to their communications mix. Broadband and mobile web access is almost everywhere, social media technologies have made the web more interactive, and barriers between companies and end-users have diminished. User-generated content can be published to the web in seconds – by anyone, anywhere, anytime – individuals can send a Tweet, write a blog post, update on Facebook or LinkedIn, upload a video to YouTube or a photograph to Flickr, check-in on FourSquare, or edit a Wikipedia page. And these tools (unlike some corporate websites) are also mobile-friendly. Trying to stop people talking online about your company, its projects, employees, services or products is like trying to stop them talking about

Looking further at the upside, creative use of social media to augment traditional communications can also yield positive benefits for a business, generating sales leads, increasing brand awareness, differentiating it from competitors and driving traffic to its website. Walltie manufacturer Helifix, for example, used a blog to increase its website visibility by 45% and boosted search traffic by 40%. Google Analytics is a powerful tool to measure sources of traffic, and Facebook, LinkedIn and various Twitter tools also provide statistics showing the real-time impacts of online activities. So, forget it’s social; it’s media. And, as we did with email and the web, we just need to use these new media effectively.

Timber Frame


Innovate to insulate Robin Lancashire and Lewis Taylor review four newer forms of timber construction, consider their applications and their energy efficiencies As thermal performance requirements have become harder and more expensive to achieve, all sectors of the construction industry need to consider building a thicker external envelope to provide space for insulation. This need is only going to increase as the industry moves toward the ‘zero-carbon’ target in 2016. For timber frame construction, merely increasing the depth of solid timber studs and fitting more insulation between them is becoming insufficient to meet the increasing requirements for thermal and energy performance. To keep up to date with current thermal performance regulations, the details in Timber Frame Construction 5th Edition have introduced an insulated service zone on the inside of the wall to help improve airtightness and allow space for more insulation to be installed. Depending on the insulation materials used, U-values below 0.15 W/m2K can be achieved. Timber frame construction predominantly deals with what could be considered ‘traditional’ timber frame construction – the panelised form of construction using solid timber wall studs and rails with woodbased sheathing boards. This method has been embraced by the UK construction industry as a standard form of timber frame construction over the last 50 years. Although enthusiasts have designed a variety of low-energy timber frame buildings over recent decades, the techniques used have remained on the periphery of the construction industry, with mainstream timber frame evolving slowly to keep pace with national building regulation changes. Driven by the need to reduce CO2 emissions, the European Union has started to set ever-tighter requirements on the energy performance of buildings, leading to ‘zero-carbon’ buildings by 2016. TRADA’s new book Innovative timber construction expands on information provided on alternative forms of timber construction mentioned in Timber frame construction. Four of the most common types of alternative timber walls and roofs are explored. These are

Structural insulated panel

structural insulated panels (SIPs), cross-laminated timber, engineered stud and twin stud. More industry changes will be needed to meet 2016 regulations. In order to achieve further reductions in U-values and achieve buildings with minimal energy requirements, timber frame designers and architects are beginning to explore some of these alternative types of timber frame construction, which have been on the periphery for many years but are now becoming better appreciated for their high levels of thermal performance.

SIPs A structural insulated panel (SIP) consists of a layer of oriented strand board (OSB) bonded onto each side of an insulating foam core. A strong, structural bond between the three layers is essential to the loadbearing ability of the SIP. The resultant sandwich of OSB and foam can be used as a structural loadbearing element. A SIP is a composite engineered product, with each building being individually designed and engineered. SIP structures can offer good thermal and airtightness performance with minimal thermal bridging due to the continuous nature of the insulation core within the panel. SIPs are commonly used for external wall and roof structures. Currently, loadbearing SIP structures are generally limited to four storeys in height for structural reasons. As SIP structures become larger or more complex, additional elements of structure may be required to support the imposed loads; however, these elements of structure will reduce the thermal performance benefits of the SIP.

Cross-laminated timber

Engineered stud wall

E n g ineered stud An engineered stud is a simple way to allow a large depth of insulation to be installed between the loadbearing timber studs used for timber frame wall panels. Engineered I-joists have been in use for many years and the earliest forms of engineered studs were simply these I-joists used vertically. Now a number of different types of engineered stud are available, using either I-joist or metal web joist designs. These studs are available in depths up to 500mm, so they can incorporate as much insulation as is required to achieve the target U-value. Engineered studs can be used as direct replacement for solid timber studs and rails, but provide the user with more space to install insulation and reduce thermal bridging. They can be clad in masonry or lightweight cladding systems. As well as their use as studs, engineered floor joists can be used in the construction of flat and pitched roofs.

Cross - l aminated timber Elsewhere in Europe, solid wood panels have been used in construction for some time. Previously made by stacking and gluing or mechanically fixing full-width sections together, nowadays the thickness of the panel tends to be made up of a number of narrow widths of timber laid together with each layer at right angles to the previous layer. This is known as cross-laminated timber construction and is typical of the solid wood panels now being imported into the UK.

Wall, floor and roof elements can be pre-cut in the factory to any dimension and shape, including openings for doors, windows, stairs, service channels and ducts. The structures offer excellent thermal, acoustic and fire performance to satisfy ever-tougher national building regulations. Crosslaminated timber buildings have a very low carbon footprint because carbon absorbed during the trees’ growth is locked away inside the wood used to make the panels. Wood is easy to machine and the material itself is a good insulator. There is no current British or European standard for crosslaminated timber, but a standard is currently under development. These large solid panels form walls, roofs, floors, and even lift shafts and stairs. The building envelope can be easily clad with other materials such as timber, brick, mineral render or composite panels. Crosslaminated timber is now being considered where masonry, concrete and steel have historically been the usual forms of construction. Although cross-laminated timber has a promising future in multi-storey construction, it is likely that low-rise non-residential buildings will be its main application. The qualities of exposed cross-laminated timber is most appreciated where an internal exposed timber surface offers an aesthetic or acoustic benefit, such as exhibition spaces, schools, places of worship, sports halls, theatres or dwellings. The benefits of cross-laminated timber’s off-site manufacture and speed of construction mean it is more likely to be used on large schemes, rather than small one-off projects.

Lookin g ahead

A twin stud wall is a simple, easy method of getting a lot of insulation into a wall with relatively inexpensive materials. It is simply two timber frame stud walls in parallel, separated by a cavity, but only one of these carries the vertical load of the building. Depending on the structural design and order of work proposed on site, this can be either the inner or the outer wall. The cavity width and the depth of both wall studs can be varied to provide sufficient timber for structural performance and space for insulation. This simple method uses many materials and techniques familiar to those who build standard timber frame buildings.

In addition to the many ways that standard timber frame construction can be adapted with differing insulation materials and locations, there are many alternative ways to construct timber frame buildings. Whatever system, or variation of system, is used, it is important to always follow the advice regarding designing for durability. Interstitial condensation risk calculations should always be conducted for any external wall, floor or roof design to ensure that no risk is present.

In timber frame construction, the twin stud method has been used for many years in party walls for acoustic separation. In some parts of the world, it has also been used in external walls; and with requirements for improved thermal performance, it is now being used in the UK too. The additional stud and cavity used in this external wall construction adds to the overall wall thickness. If a cavity and masonry cladding are added, the overall wall thickness can be considerable. Its application is therefore more likely to be with a cladding such as timber or render on board, to keep walls as slender as possible. On sites where wall thickness is not so important, brick cladding may be an equal consideration.

USING Wood for solar s hading Patrick Hislop and Philip O’Leary review the principles for designing solar shading and how to make the best use of wood With ever increasing concern about saving energy, areas of glazing are becoming bigger, both to obtain the maximum advantage from daylight and to benefit from passive solar gain in the winter. UK building regulations recognise the need to balance the advantage of additional daylight from large windows against the risk of internal overheating and glare, and consequently buildings may now require solar protection. Many forms of sun screening are now becoming an accepted feature in the visual appearance of buildings, but their primary role will always be to moderate the effect of the sun’s rays on the internal environment of the building.

Timber Frame


These issues are dealt with in a new TRADA publication External solar shading with wood – a design guide for architects that looks at external screening devices, comparing nine types now in use. It is limited to those screening systems that are wholly or partially wood based but does include metal support systems and metal hardware necessary for operating louvres.

Why sol ar shadin g? In the hotter parts of the world there are many traditional ways of eliminating or reducing the effects of the sun, which is generally regarded as ‘hostile’ in these areas. On the other hand, in more temperate climates, the sun has usually been regarded as beneficial, with buildings generally planned to gain the maximum advantage of sunshine. However, in these areas the increased popularity of large windows, or even totally glazed walls, has frequently resulted in internal overheating and excessive glare. This is generally only mitigated by the use of some form of internal blind, often added as a remedial measure against glare, or air conditioning to reduce unwanted internal heat. Meeting these requirements is now part of the Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) calculations. BS 8206-2 Lighting for buildings also recommends the use of shading devices to prevent overheating and glare. Because the sun’s rays are beneficial in the winter, any form of sun screening should be designed to allow sufficient penetration, while still preventing excessive glare from low-angle sun. For example, the shadow pattern projected by spaced louvres or fins in low-angle sun may be acceptable generally, but may not reduce the level of glare sufficiently for computer screens or other internal activities.

External solar shading with wood – a design guide for architects details nine modern types of sun screening. It describes their efficiency in controlling unwanted solar gain, while accepting that solar gain is welcome in the winter months for reducing the heating load. The difficulty is in benefiting from this solar gain, while avoiding the risk of overheating or excessive glare. Examples include: • projecting canopy ‘brise-soleils’ that are often the most effective solution on south-facing elevations • vertical fins for east and west elevations. Others are louvres, fins, shutters and screens.

The nine examples demonstrate how important it is to consider all aspects when choosing the most effective method of sun screening for the particular building.

Another factor that can influence the design of any shading device is the need to maximise the use of daylight, by deflecting it deep into the interior of a building. The scale, complexity and cost of any solar screening, will depend on the type of building, hours and mode of occupation, the level of control of any operation or adjustment provided, and the level of maintenance required. For instance, combining solar screening with deciduous planting may be feasible for small residential buildings but not for multi-storey office buildings, whereas remotely controlled adjustable louvres may be acceptable for large offices but not economic for small residential buildings. Internal shading devices such as Venetian or roller blinds, solar films on glass, or shading devices incorporated between glass panes in insulated glass units, will allow in energy from the sun, while limiting excessive glare. However, in summer conditions this internal heat gain can be undesirable, particularly as the levels of thermal insulation in the building fabric are continually improved, increasing the risk of unwanted heat being trapped within the building.

Philip O’Leary Section Leader - Timber Investigations TRADA Technology Patrick Hislop RIBA

W hy use wood? Wood has been traditionally used for many forms of solar shading in the past. And because of its versatility, ease of working and easy maintenance, wood has an important role in the design of modern shading devices. However, the prime reason for using wood for solar screening is usually its attractive appearance, whether left to bleach naturally or finished in any colour. Wood is also very versatile, with a wide range of species available for different applications. Given correct detailing and specification, wood can be both robust and durable, both factors important for any screening devices exposed to external weather and possible mechanical damage.

Scul ptin g t he future Rupert Scott appeals to the industry to show what is possible in timber Breathtaking, eye-catching, a triumph of timber engineering: these were all words used to describe the ‘Giraffe’ pavilion that formed the TRADA stand at the 2012 Timber Expo.

Timber Frame


We wanted to fire the imagination and show what is possible in timber. To create a structure for our own stand that was both exciting in form and function. Few would argue that this hasn’t been delivered – in spades! The starting point for the structural engineers, John Harding and Harri Lewis of the Ramboll Computational Design team, was a freestanding gridshell form with steeply sloped sides (to avoid visitors hitting their heads) and large arched openings for access. The central section of the gridshell descends in to a funnel, like a spider’s web, to provide complex curvatures that allow the legs to be more vertical within the 4m height constraint. But, whereas the foyer gridshell was made of small timber members, the team started to consider a more complex challenge; would it be possible to create the freeform shape as a shell rather than a grid?

Several months in the planning, the exhibition stand is a collaboration between TRADA and design engineers Ramboll UK.

For cost and demountability, we needed discrete flat planes of timber. We chose plywood as most economical material and one which could be cut, using digital fabrication techniques, into bespoke panels at a relatively low cost.

The sculpted gridshell design, which spreads like a tree from its heart, was inspired by a much smaller, timber gridshell sculpture in the foyer of Ramboll UK’s London office. I was visiting their office and wondered could Ramboll design something equally clever and eye-catching for the TRADA stand at Timber Expo?

For the original sculpture, all members were laser cut from 6mm WBP exterior plywood, but for TRADA’s ‘Giraffe’ we decided to use marine plywood to ensure that the structure will perform equally well out of doors.

It was a demanding brief: TRADA’s sculpted stand had to be economical to produce, minimise waste in manufacture, be simple to construct and be demountable for rebuilding easily at another location. All photos:

The key problem was how to connect adjacent timber panels. The connection had to transfer shear and in-plane forces between panels. It had to adapt to different angles, be cheap and easy to source and be quick and easy to install without requiring complicated cuts in the panel.

Having optimised the form for self-weight and gravity, they went on to investigate the effect of accidental horizontal loads from impacts from conference attendees. “We were looking at ways in which to tweak the geometry and make it more resistant to these loads,” explained design engineer Harri Lewis of Ramboll. These included folding the structure in the style of origami to effectively give it more depth. Another option was edge panels that curve along each arch boundary. These were designed to significantly improve the buckling resistance while also providing a neat border capable of supporting a strip of LED lights. “We also looked at different fabrication techniques and the differences between three- and five-axis computer numerical control (CNC) machines. The connection between the plywood panels was critical and we always had to keep in mind how any solution we designed would be fabricated,” said Lewis. While the plywood panels were treated for fire resistance, Ramboll produced a series of mock-ups for visual interrogation and structural testing so that the look and possible warping as a result of the process could be judged. The timber structure consists of 302 pieces that were three-axis CNC cut from 28 standard birch ply sheets provided by James Latham, while Lonza Wood Protection provided a proven fire retardant protection through its DRICON impregnation treatment. A software package established the best way to fit the panel shapes onto the sheets with minimal waste. Each panel was predrilled with up to 20 paired bolt holes and chased with shallow recesses to take the hinge plates. To maintain a clear, uncluttered appearance externally, the hinge plates were fixed on the inside faces of the panels. With some lateral thinking by the team, they realised that this ideal connection already existed – a door hinge! Triangular panels, spaced apart and connected by hinges, offered a workable solution. But the team wanted to push their ideas beyond triangulation – partly because a triangular structure is relatively inefficient, as the surface tends to fold along the continuous edges, but also because of the difficulty of creating a successful junction at nodes where the points of six triangles would meet in space. The team created their own software to implement a re-meshing algorithm that optimised panels on the surface so that they could be cut from flat sheet material. Panels on a positive Gaussian curve (around the upper parts of the structure) are generally hexagon shaped, panels on a zero Gaussian curve (the lower parts of the legs) are rectangular and panels on a negative Gaussian curve (in the funnel) are ‘bow-tie’ shaped. The design work progressed smoothly, with Ramboll’s engineers carrying out several important tests, checking the connections and joints of the sculpture and ensuring that it fitted together smoothly.

The end result was a resounding success. We plan to show the sculpture at the Surface Design Show, Islington, as well as use it for TRADA’s Ecobuild 2013 stand.

Timber f rame puts fabric first Andrew Carpenter explains why the timber frame industry has never been better placed to take market share from other methods of construction Driving sustainable construction is not easy, particularly when large quarters of the construction industry are locked into out-dated, wasteful processes which do nothing for carbon reduction both during construction and in service. But a much greater challenge exists. It’s vital that we design buildings that are not only efficient to build, but are also built to high quality specifications that perform in the way they were intended to – without compromise. Without question the build quality and sustainable performance of a building has to be paramount, but there are many other challenges that we must overcome if timber frame is to continue seeing growth over the coming years. Since I joined the UKTFA two years ago we have instigated a great number of new initiatives that are game-changing for this sector. And while we accept that we have a long way to go in capturing market share in the UK housing industry, we are doing that. We are working with a great many more house builders, developers, architects and contractors that are reaping the benefits of building high level code homes, and even Passivhaus standard accommodation. We are also demonstrating quality and cost control that other methods of construction can’t deliver consistently. Housing and Flatted Development 3. Photo: ScotFrame

2012 has been another year of change and 2013 is likely to be as turbulent. At the time of writing this we learn about the ‘perfect storm’ of the housing crisis – a plentiful supply of low price homes, yet no money available for young people who desperately need to get on the housing ladder. When the Government announced it would pump significant budget into getting first time buyers out of rental and into their own homes we responded with a robust argument based around the need for a FabricFirst approach.

Built-in not added - on If we are going to see a significant number of new homes being delivered into the market then we need to make sure that they are built to a standard that delivers optimum levels of thermal performance. In simple terms there is very little point adding on renewable technologies The Gallery at Rustat Road, Cambridge. Photo: Pinewood Structures

to homes to produce more fuel – we need to concentrate on making sure that the fuel we use is not wasted through leaky, badly performing buildings. It’s a similar ethos to Passivhaus and it’s certainly no coincidence that Passivhaus standard houses in the UK are generally built in timber frame.

This all might seem like fantastic news for the timber frame industry and we might have all the facts and the answers to all the difficult questions. But the biggest challenge we must overcome, particularly in the current economic climate, is convincing the contractors that timber frame is a mainstream cost effective solution. We all know the saying – if you always do what you always did, you’ll always get, what you always got – and in the sense of the built environment it couldn’t be more true. There’s a reason why we have millions of inefficient buildings across the UK and why, unless we make some sweeping changes to future buildings, this will still be the case in years to come and future governments will be asking what went wrong? We must now consider how timber works in real world situations; the financial benefits of choosing timber frame and how easy it is to work with if we are to truly understand why timber is not just the future of the construction industry, but the here and now.

Cost certainty is something which timber frame delivers ‘as standard’. This important factor is often overlooked when selecting a build method - which can prove costly to even the best construction companies - by either pricing themselves out of the tender process with unnecessary contingencies or receiving a nasty shock at the end of the project, when they have priced a project in the belief that they are able to procure labour and materials for less than they can. All UKTFA timber frame manufacturing members provide a fixed-cost quotation, there is no wriggle room, no mission creep, and no over or under engineering; we deliver exactly what we price for. As we emerge from recession and Britain gets building, cost and programme certainty will be a critical factor that will contribute to the success of the construction economy.

If we could draw a line in the sand and redesign the construction industry in the UK we would. We would start with the end point of achieving a sustainable future and identify the means by which to deliver that. Based on fact and ever decreasing natural resources we would take the very best the UK industry has to offer and build homes and public buildings that make the greatest visual impact but the least impact on our resources – in essence, it would require the construction industry to undo its thinking and redefine a brave new timber future.

Are all roof battens the same? Phil O’Leary makes the case for using ‘BS 5534’ roof battens Roofing battens are fundamental to a roof structure and are used in a load bearing capacity. They are designed to carry the load of slated and tiled roofs as well as imposed loads caused by wind and snow. In addition, they may be required to provide a reasonably secure foothold for roofers while slated and tiled roofs are being covered. Although there are no legal requirements for the use of roofing battens, BS 5534:2003+A1:2010 Code of practice for slating and tiling (including shingles) is the standard that sets out specific requirements for roofing battens and includes requirements for grading, species, preservative treatment and marking.

D oes batten size matter ? The actual batten thickness (the smaller dimension) should not be less than that given in the following table, nor more than 3mm oversize. The actual batten width should be within ±3mm of the basic size. Minimum timber batten sizes (roofing and vertical work) Application Slates (double-lap) Natural: sized or random Fibre-cement or concrete Clay and concrete tiles Double-lap Single-lap

Basic minimum size of batten Up to 450mm span (mm) Up to 600mm span (mm) 50 x 25 38 x 25

50 x 25 50 x 25

38 x 25 38 x 25

38 x 25 50 x 25

Battens for spans greater than those given here, or for other loading conditions, should be designed in accordance with Annex E of BS 5534. For natural slating, they should not be less than 50mm x 25mm, irrespective of strength and stiffness calculation.

S hou l d I use ‘BS 5534’ battens ? Recently, timber roof battens have been supplied as being one of the following types: • BS 5534 battens – these are fully graded to meet the requirements of BS 5534.

• ‘Graded’ battens – usually partially graded to BS 5534 – the exception being that they are not graded for knots and wane. This needs to be done on site by the roofer. • Standard/ungraded battens – may be smaller than those permitted in BS 5534 or have other strength-reducing characteristics. Battens that do not fully comply with BS 5534 (supplied as ‘graded’ and ‘standard’ battens) require further on-site grading by competent and preferably trained individuals. Companies and individuals using battens that are not fully graded need to understand the degree of grading that has been undertaken by the producer/supplier and what responsibilities and liabilities are being taken by using non-‘BS 5534’ battens.

How durable are battens ? Most timber battens are supplied treated with a wood preservative to achieve a 60-year design life in a use class 2 situation in accordance with BS 8417:2011 Preservation of Wood Code of Practice. While best practice in the timber trade requires that cut ends of treated timber be always treated with a brush-on preservative, this is not often carried out on cut roofing battens. However, cut ends of battens that are in contact with mortar should be treated with a liberal brush-applied coating of preservative.

D o factory-graded BS 5534 battens cost more? The answer is yes. However, using either ungraded or partially graded battens may result in: • more time spent on site to grade battens • requirement for a competent or trained grader • a wastage that can be often be as high as 40% • having to mark every batten to comply with some contracts • extra costs to dispose of waste • responsibilities and liabilities of grading being passed to roofer • the risk of using non-compliant battens being passed to the roofer • accidents. Therefore, the real cost differential between factory-graded BS 5534 battens and ungraded battens is significantly less than it would appear on face value.

Keep your key people Jim Roach sees an increasingly buoyant market and a looming skills shortage In 2012 we saw a lot of movement within the industry, if not significant growth. There was more activity than any other in our nine-year experience in recruitment.

Innovation It has been businesses that are developing new and innovative products and solutions, or pushing out into new markets, that have been most active. Some need new skills, though more are seeking additional skills due to growth gained from innovation. Very noticeably, businesses with recruitment needs have tended to recruit more than just one. For example, we’ve repeatedly seen companies taking on further sales staff, followed by designers and commercial managers.

Skil ls s h ortage I’ve been talking about skills shortages for years and cautioned anyone who would listen at the beginning of the recession to hang on to all the skills and talent you can – sell off the company cars first! Now most would agree that the industry is looking forward and thinking in terms of development at least, and then on towards growth. Those that kept their key people will be well placed to reap rewards. Those that are looking for new talent are likely to have to go to greater lengths in future. Additionally new skills will be needed to compete, such as Lean Manufacturing and Building Information Modelling (BIM). When growth really starts and there is an increased demand for staff, the short supply will be more acute than one may expect. Many laid off throughout the recession have moved on to other industries – often on better pay. They’ve turned their backs and are unlikely to want to return. The construction industry as a whole is short of skills – too many recent recessions and parents telling children not to follow their path.

Timber Frame


Once we see further signs of growth from the housing sector that has been held back so much and the commercial markets that take confidence from this (the tail wagging the dog perhaps, but so often this is the case) we will have very real skills shortages.

Trainin g and de vel opment During any downturn, many organisations simply switch off or radically reduce learning and development budgets. In my opinion, the very opposite is necessary during tougher economic conditions. If times are challenging staff need to have their skills improved and enhanced to become more expert in their chosen specialism. For the timber industry to do well it needs motivated people with the latest and best skills and training. It needs to reap the benefit of current knowledge and attract new skills from other sectors to deal with changing demands. TRADA, UKTFA, the Universities and the many further training providers need to be supported in their training provision and career development activities to ensure the industry can grow and develop to best effect.

Retention – keepin g your ta lent We know that employees are more likely to leave a company if they feel they are undervalued and do not receive developmental coaching and training. It is often the best who go – they are more confident of finding something and get snapped up. Keep your key people close and onside. In a competitive market holding on to key people is important. To grow successfully it is critical.

Preservin g c onfidence in treated wood In his first-year review of the WPA Benchmark, Stephen Young reveals that the scheme is no fig leaf for treater or preservative supplier shortcomings In autumn 2011, the Wood Protection Association (WPA) announced a quality scheme to the UK timber treatment industry – the WPA Benchmark of quality. The scheme was designed with one aim in mind - to restore customer confidence in the performance of treated wood products, in particular, those destined for ground contact end-uses such as fencing. High on the priority list of the scheme steering committee was the need for WPA Benchmark to have the credibility and relevance to be a long-term solution to treated wood quality. The scheme gets right to the heart of the matter by providing third-party verification that an individual component has been treated correctly, in line with the WPA Wood Preservation Manual, to achieve British Standard specifications. It is a year since the first treaters joined the scheme and the WPA Benchmark steering committee has now approved a marketing plan to promote the scheme and Benchmark Certificated products to buyers. The number of treaters with products certificated under this scheme continues to grow. Products of assessed quality are typically made from pine, Douglas fir or larch, but posts made from incised spruce have recently achieved certification. This is a landmark development. We believe that the use of techniques to achieve the appropriate penetration and retention of preservative in species regarded as resistant to treatment, such as whitewood, will open up significant opportunities for treaters.

Only wood products that have their treatment verified by the WPA qualify for the WPA Benchmark of quality and fitness for purpose

WPA Benchmark sets a new standard for treated wood quality by auditing the safe relationship of an individual treatment plant to ensure the preservative penetration and retention meets the end use service life requirements. Photo: Lonza Wood Protection

Expert t hird -party assessment The WPA Benchmark is no fig leaf for treater or preservative supplier shortcomings; it is an in-depth, expert third-party assessment of the treatment plant, process and analytical justification that the correct level of treatment is being achieved. This was highlighted during a recent meeting of the Scheme Steering Committee when the treatment experts that carry out Benchmark assessments gave their report. It highlighted that inadequate calibration of plant controls, particularly the essential vacuum and pressure controls, required corrective action in 78% of all plants assessed. In 60% of plants there was insufficient evidence that the treatment ‘safe relationship’ applicable to a specific product had been sufficiently well established. Establishing the safe relationship is unique to an individual plant and essential to ensuring that the correct level of protection is given for the end-use. In these cases, the preservative supplier had to carry out additional analysis work for acceptance by the WPA assessment team.

In 60% of inspections, assessors registered concerns about solution concentration controls and checking procedures. Assessors also reported that in 50% of all inspections, certain key publications about treatment standards and quality were not available to plant operators or managers, for example, BS8417 Code of Practice for Wood Preservation and WPA quality guidance note 2 for treatment plants. The latter is considered a mandatory controlled document where a firm’s management systems are certificated under ISO9001. In concluding their report, the assessors told the WPA that they had been impressed by the commitment of plant operatives to meeting the requirements set by the WPA Benchmark scheme. Post assessment feedback from treaters signed up to WPA Benchmark is very encouraging. All say assessment by an independent expert has helped refine treatment operations and effectiveness. The experience of treaters to date is clear endorsement of Benchmark’s credibility and relevance to customer needs. The wider adoption and promotion of the scheme is seen as a real opportunity to restore buyer confidence. The WPA believes that quality assurance is the way ahead for the timber treatment industry in the UK. WPA Benchmark is open to all. We call on all treaters who have their customers’ best interests at heart to join the scheme.

From waste to resourc e

Timber Frame


WRAP’s data suggests that construction and demolition generate about half the total wood waste. Therefore, processes that minimise waste generation during construction and recover wood during demolition are immensely important. Statistics published by The Wood Recyclers’ Association indicate that the UK recycled just over 2.8 million tonnes of wood in 2011 of which, including exports, 62% was used to produce chipboard, animal bedding, surfacing materials and horticultural products, and 38% was exploited as biomass which can substitute fossil fuels for heat and electricity generation.

Miles Brown analyses the numbers that show a more than tenfold increase in wood recycling since the mid 1990s

The statistics available therefore suggest that 65%–70% of wood waste is currently being recycled, demonstrating that much progress has been made since the mid 1990s when the recycling rate was less than 4%.

The UK has been recycling an ever-increasing proportion of wood waste and moving towards a situation where much recycled wood is considered to be a resource rather than a waste product.

There is a strong body of anecdotal evidence to suggest that much wood waste is disposed of via informal routes, through such applications as small scale biomass or domestic fuel, so it is likely that less than one million tonnes of wood enters UK landfill each year. This is a fraction of the eight million tonnes estimated by TRADA in 2008 when recycling levels were lower and wood waste arisings were thought to be much higher. Despite volumes of wood waste declining in response to the current economic downturn, it is likely that some earlier studies overestimated wood waste levels, even though these would have been at a time when the economy was more buoyant.

This is the finding from TRADA’s latest Wood Information Sheet (WIS) Recovering and minimising wood waste which outlines the progress the wood recycling sector has made in diverting timber from landfill – and finding added value uses for recycled wood, such as biomass fuels. Determining the quantity of wood waste generated in the UK has proved difficult to assess over the years and surveys have given wide ranging estimates. In its 2011 report Realising the value of recovered wood, the Waste Resources & Action Programme (WRAP) estimated that the UK generates a little over four million tonnes of wood waste each year. This figure is also broadly supported by an independent report from Tolvik Consulting (2011), which was launched shortly afterwards. Wood briquettes for use in a biomass boiler

The WIS reveals that the waste hierarchy, which ranks prevention as the ideal and disposal as the least desired outcome, is now embodied in the Waste (England and Wales) Regulations and governs how all those involved with waste must behave. The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has recently completed a consultation exercise on introducing a ban or restrictions on wood waste being sent to landfill, so it is likely that the future will see an increasing emphasis on directing wood from landfill. The quality of the wood waste is important in some recycling applications. Segregation of wood and non-wood, and of low- and highquality wood may prove cost effective provided that sufficient highervalue wood can be recovered. Prices tend to reflect the lowest quality of material in the load. So if good quality wood waste is mixed with lower quality material (such as chipboard, MDF and treated wood waste), it will not be considered suitable for the high value markets to which the better quality material is suited, and so disposal costs will be disproportionately high. The main market for wood waste in the UK is for the manufacture of chipboard, which has traditionally used more than one million tonnes per year. There are also much smaller markets for materials such as animal bedding, surfacing materials and horticultural mulch.

The emerging market for biomass is expected to grow rapidly during the next few years. The wood waste stream can meet only a small proportion of this, but high demand will mean that wood waste will become increasingly sought after as a fuel for heat and electricity generation. The wood recycling sector has grown dramatically over the last decade. The WIS concludes that the sector is looking forward to the time when an ever increasing proportion of the wood waste stream is recycled and no UK-produced wood waste enters landfill. An increasingly mature recycling industry operates within a regulatory framework whereby much of the material it handles is considered to be a resource rather than a waste. However, after a number of years of steady growth, the wood recycling sector is suddenly facing a turbulent time, which is likely to have at least a short-term impact on recycling output. In September 2012 the Sonae factory at Knowlsley, which produced chipboard from recycled wood, closed after various fires and incidents on site. These had led to increasing opposition to the plant, both political and from local residents, which reportedly resulted in delays in gaining planning permission to reconstruct the factory. Sonae used 400,000 tonnes of recycled wood per year which represents nearly 15% of the UK wood recycling sector’s output for 2011.

Various levels of the waste hierarchy (EU Waste Framework Directive)

There are also concerns that the rapidly growing export market may stall, much of which supplied biomass plant during recent cold winters. But last winter was less cold and the European biomass power stations have been better stocked. There are also concerns for the longer term that changes to the levels of government support for the biomass sector will promote biomass and fossil fuel co-firing plants, which will favour the use of virgin rather than recycled biomass. However, there are various biomass power stations in the pipeline that will accept recycled wood, which it is hoped that over the next two years will address the current shortfall in demand.

Rising and going Kevin Underwood summarises the features of good stair design A timber staircase is an opportunity to show off design flair and innovation, but the desire to create a centre-piece for the home should not surmount consideration given to the safety of the stair. Stairs present a risk of injury through slips, trips and falls and while a home owner may believe that this type of accident would not happen to them the statistics belie this view. In their report Can the home ever be safe? the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) states that every year there are over 300,000 visits to Accident and Emergency following falls on the stairs. Photo: Westgate Joinery

Most serious falls occur when in descent a person falls backwards and slips down the stairs, injuring themselves on the nosings of the steps (they pass) or when they hit the floor or other objects at the bottom of the flight. Occasionally, more serious injuries occur when the user falls forward rather than backwards. In ascent, the injuries tend to be less severe as the fall is most usually forward onto the steps above; but again, should the user fall the other way (backwards rather than forwards) much more serious injuries can occur. Carpets can reduce the severity of an injury while hard, sharp edges are likely to cause more serious injuries. Accidents can be reduced by attending to those characteristics of a staircase that affect a user’s ability to use the stair safely. The geometry of the stair, the rise, the going and the position and shape of the treads can affect the ability of the user to safely place their feet and avoid tripping or slipping on the stair. But if a user does begin to fall, a suitable handrail can allow them to steady themselves and at all times adequate guarding can prevent users falling to the side of the stairs.

Under - step and over -step Many accidents are caused by an under-step or over-step in both ascent and descent. In ascent, an under-step is where the foot is not placed fully on the next step up and an over-step is when the toes catch the riser of the next step up or catch under the nosing. In descent, an over-

step is where the foot lands beyond the tread of the stair and an understep is where the heel catches the nosing or riser of the step above.

Consistent rise and g oin g A key cause of under-stepping or over-stepping is when there is inconsistency in the rise and going of a stair. When a person starts to ascend or descend a stair they subconsciously determine the appropriate movements they need to make with their legs and feet based on the first one or two steps they take. This process, known as ‘proprioceptive feedback’, makes the user vulnerable to variations in the rise and going of a stair as they expect to step up or down by the same amount throughout the flight. Variations between steps are unexpected and can lead to the user tripping or slipping. It is, therefore, important to allow only small variations between steps of around 1% of the design dimensions. When a user places their foot on a step the best support is provided when they can place most, if not all, of their foot on the tread. But when the going falls below 250mm this is not always possible and, in order to get adequate support, users begin to turn their feet to the side at each step. 95% of domestic stairs fall into this range, and walking with turned feet has become the expected method of walking on a stair. However, the risk of slipping on nosings is increased when the amount of the foot that overhangs the tread increases; so the user that doesn’t turn their feet is in danger of slipping.

Open rise Where stairs are designed to have an open rise the treads should overlap and there should never be horizontal gaps between treads when the stair is viewed on plan. In order to protect children who may use the stair the vertical gaps between treads should be small enough to prevent a 100mm diameter sphere from passing through.

Winders Fewer than expected accidents occur on stairs with winders (stairs change direction without a landing), even though winders are often used in narrow, steeper stairs when space is at a premium. It is possible that users take less care when walking on straight flights and are more cautious on winder flights. Well-designed winders providing an adequate going on the walking line and at least 50mm of tread at the newel can be safe to use. However, winders that cannot provide adequate support at each step can lead to users dropping over 600mm after a slight slip near the newel.

Handrail s Users of stairs quite often don’t use the handrails provided and may feel they are unnecessary. Where there is adequate going for the user to place their foot comfortably and the rise is not too high, users tend to feel confident and do not use the handrail to steady themselves or to



T imber Industry Yearbook 2013



Sur face finis h The surface finish or covering to a tread can affect the likelihood of slipping and worn coverings can cause a trip. Where the going of the stair is 300mm users tend not to be affected too much by the slipperiness of the surface but on stairs with treads less than 300mm consideration should be given to a measure of slip resistance at the nosing. This is where first contact is made in descent and a slip resistant surface can help turn a potential slip into a slight loss of balance which can be corrected by gripping the handrail. The characteristics described above are just representative of the issues affecting the safe use of stairs. There is a wealth of research into how people use and perceive stairs and into what makes stairs both safe and unsafe to use. So while the statistics show that there are a lot of injuries attributed to trips, slips and falls on stairs in the home, stairs should not be considered as inherently unsafe, as the risks associated with stairs can be mitigated through good design.

pull themselves up the stair. However, handrails are an essential safety item. When a loss of balance occurs users are able to catch hold of a suitable handrail and stabilise themselves within a fraction of a second. It is, therefore, essential that the handrail is positioned so that the hand can reach it quickly and, as a fall can occur on any part of the stair, the handrail needs to be within easy reach throughout the whole flight.

Guarding To adequately protect users from falling from the side of the stair any fall of more than 600mm should be protected by guarding. This should be strong enough not to give way when weight is applied to it and it should be tall enough to stop people falling over the top of it in normal use. To protect children who may use the stairs, any gaps in the guarding should be small enough to prevent a 100mm diameter sphere from passing through.

FIRE-RESISTING DOORSETS: A BUILDER’S GUIDE Fire-resisting doorsets, as distinct from single ‘fire door’ leaves, are precisely designed and engineered component sets required to perform three main functions: • to protect escape routes from the effects of fire (including smoke) so occupants can leave safely (includes lofts and conversions) • to protect the contents and/or structure of the building by limiting the fire spread (an insurance requirement) • to permit fire fighting. A doorset package includes: • the door leaf • the door frame • hardware • intumescent seals and smoke seals. Each component plays a critical role in the doorset’s fire resistance. Unauthorised changes in specification may impair the performance of the whole doorset. Any changes from the tested specification should only be made with the approval of an appropriate expert authority, such as a UKAS-accredited testing laboratory. Testing, assessment and certification building regulations specify the requirements for doorsets to protect occupants for a minimum time in different locations in the building, expressed in minutes, either 20, 30 or 60. Manufacturers must have each design evaluated by a UKASaccredited laboratory against a British Standard test. The assessment allows them to form a specification, available from suppliers, which installers must follow. The British Standards are BS 476-22:1987, or the newer European standard BS EN 1634-1:2008. Certification schemes, like BM TRADA’s Q-Mark Fire Door Scheme and the BWF-CERTIFIRE Fire Door and Doorset Scheme, ensure manufacturers’ systems meet the requirements and all doorsets covered by the certificate are fit for purpose. Certified doors leave the factory with clear identification, like a permanent plug in the door edge or a label. They are therefore recognizable as compliant, quality products and will assist with building control approval and any future fire risk assessments of the building. It is therefore recommended that certified doorsets are specified for building projects and an increasing number of companies and organizations are writing certification schemes in to their building specifications.


Fire doors Doorsets: the best way of buying and fitting a fire door. The door is supplied hung in its frame complete with all essential hardware and seals. Door kits: similar to doorsets, where the door and frame are sold factory prepared and ready for hanging, complete with the compatible components. Door leaves: unfinished, veneered or painted, these must be matched with the correct size frame and compatible components. Door blanks: oversized, unfinished leaves trimmed to size, lipped and veneered. When converted to a doorset, these must demonstrate evidence of performance. Their specification must match the approval, including manufacturing and all components.

Essentia l hardware These items vary according to the doorset design, but include: • hinges and latches for single-acting doorsets • door closers where required • floor springs and pivots for double-acting doorsets. Check that all hardware has test evidence to show its fitness for purpose. Fit non-essential hardware to the door face, leaving its structure intact. Fit all hardware according to manufacturer’s specifications, using intumescent gaskets and seals as necessary.

Intumes cent seal s These expand with heat, providing a fire stop, smoke seal and thermal insulation and are available as strips, papers, mastics and paints. Their expansion properties vary, so the type, size and installation must remain exactly as tested for the end use application. Seals are fitted to the sides and top edge of the leaf, or in grooves in the frame, to seal the gap between leaf and frame in a fire. Rigid or flexible systems are available for glazed openings. Intumescent paper or mastic gaskets are often necessary between hardware and timber door components. Ensure correct size and material seals are fitted in the correct locations as indicated by the fire door manufacturer.

Smoke seals Smoke is the biggest cause of death in fires. Consider smoke seals for additional safety, even where not required by Building Regulations. They can be: • brushes built into the casing of the intumescent seal • flexible fins built into the casing of the intumescent seal • compression seals fitted into the frame rebate • automatic drop down seals either face fixed or rebated into the bottom of the leaf, located at the threshold.



T imber Industry Yearbook 2013



• the gap between the frame and wall opening is sealed to prevent fire and smoke passing behind the frame (architrave may need to be removed in order to check the sealing to structural opening) Use rock fibre insulation (not glass wool), mortar or an approved intumescent mastic, depending on the gap size. For double acting or higher performance doors, seek the manufacturer’s advice as they are likely to have specific requirements to meet for fire resistance. MDF frames may be suitable for FD30 applications.

D oorstop size There is no longer a need for 25mm stops to meet fire resistance requirements. Typically a 12mm minimum depth of stop is now specified. I nsta l l ation

Alignin g doors The door leaf should be square in the frame with an even gap of 2mm– 4mm around the sides and top edge. The threshold gap at the bottom edge should be in accordance with the manufacturer’s specification. Smoke sealing requirements for the doorset may also dictate the necessary gap under the door (3mm in the absence of a threshold seal).

Pl anin g doors Manufacturers generally allow light planing (2mm–3mm) of the edges to fit the door to the frame. Remove intumescent seals before planing; then replace. Increase depth of the seal groove if necessary.

Trimmin g doors Some fire door leaves permit limited trimming during installation. Only trim within the allowance stated. A bespoke doorset, possibly manufactured from a door blank, will be required for a nonstandard size. Fire doorset in a hotel

G l azing Wired glass is no longer the sole option for FD30 and FD60 doorsets; many systems and glass types are available. Ensure that the glazing system is installed strictly within the overall specification and manufacturer’s instructions.

WA R N I NG ! DO NOT cut glazed apertures, or openings, yourself as this will invalidate the fire certificate. This must be performed by an authorised company.

D oor f rames Full doorsets are preferable, but existing door frames may be retained providing the specification of the frame matches that for the door being fitted. This is acceptable for FD30 doorsets as long as: • the type, quantity and location of any intumescent material is identical to that tested and approved • the frame is at least 32mm-thick softwood (minimum) • the existing frame is at least as dense as the frame specified in the door’s assessment documents, eg 450kg/m3

Rebated l eaves Double leaf doorsets with rebated meeting edges must have supporting test evidence as door leaves with rebates only have to distort half their thickness before they effectively separate and allow the fire through. Double doorsets with rebated leaf edges are often fitted with selectors and fore-end conversion units. If selectors become inoperative, and leaves close out of sequence, the integrity of the doorset is lost. Rebated leaf edges don’t contribute to smoke control.

Apertures for gl ass and trans fer grill es A fire-resisting doorset is an engineered safety device. Any alterations, such as adding glazing apertures, should only be carried out by an approved manufacturer or installer. Do not carry out this work on site as unauthorised alterations to fire door components usually invalidate the certification.

Maintenan ce As with any safety devide, a fire-resisting doorset and all its components should be checked and maintained on a regular basis (in fact Article 17



T imber Industry Yearbook 2013



of the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order 2005 requires that fire safety equipment and devices are maintained in an efficient state, in efficient working order and in good repair). Any replacement components should match what was originally fitted and be fit for purpose. If the door has to be replaced, it must comply with the appropriate Building Regulations.

Perf ormance specif ication Fire-resisting doorsets are primarily specified according to their performance in terms of fire resistance and/or smoke control. Both British and European test methods are acceptable for UK regulatory.


Most common fire-resistance specifications

The dangers of buying and installing non-certified doors and doorsets and/or the wrong components are obvious. Failure of the door or doorset is likely to occur, putting people and property at risk and resulting in possible prosecution for the installer.

R e g u l atory re q uirements and advi ce For England and Wales, these are contained in the Building Regulations Approved Document B. Volume 1 describes the requirements for domestic houses and Volume 2 addresses other types of buildings. Where a building is erected or extended, or has undergone a material change of use, and the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order applies to that building or extension, Regulation 38 of the Building Regulations requires that a package of fire safety information - ‘as built’ information which records the fire safety design of the building or extension - must be assembled and given to the person responsible for the premises. The fire safety information provided should include all fire safety design measures in appropriate detail and with sufficient accuracy to assist the responsible person to operate and maintain the building in reasonable safety. Third party certified doorsets with appropriate identifying plugs and labels provide the builder with simplest method of supplying this information to the end user.

Although FD20 doors are referred to in the Building Regulations, it is preferable to use FD30 doors for their added protection. Different building types, insurance or other requirements may require doorsets of 60, 90 or even 120 minutes’ performance. Doorsets in specific environments may have additional performance requirements, eg for robustness or acoustic insulation.

Passive fire protection demands maintenan ce Peter Barker outlines how passive fire protection works and highlights the need for maintenance by skilled personnel Maintenance of buildings is essential to ensure the longevity of a building and to provide a pleasant and safe environment for people to live and work in. Depending on the size and type of the building and building use, maintenance activities could be carried out by one person, such as a caretaker, or a dedicated estates department. Occasionally a specialist may undertake maintenance of a particular installation and this may be tied in as part of an ongoing contract. A leading edge of a fire door that suffered impact damage and has a suitable repair

Maintenance of specialist equipment by specialist personnel makes sense, whether the equipment has been installed to facilitate the building’s operations or for life safety. It is a proactive approach for providing a reasonable level of confidence that the system will work when required to and is a sustainable approach to building and building asset management. Unfortunately, passive fire protection is typically not seen as a specialist system because it is incorporated within the structure and fabric of the building. It is generally assumed by the building owner/ occupier that the building will continue to provide the necessary protection from fire long after the building has been signed off by the appropriate authority. These assumptions lead to three main problems. Firstly, the maintenance of passive fire protection normally falls into general building maintenance duties. Secondly, any subsequent installations that require breaching of fire compartment lines are not normally considered as affecting the fire resistance performance of the building. Thirdly, any supporting test evidence for the various passive fire protection systems installed within the building, and used by the approving authority for signing the building off as compliant, is not passed to the eventual building owner. Passive fire protection is incorporated within the built environment to provide the following functions, listed under B3 of Part B of the England and Wales Building Regulations 2000: 1. stability to a building such that in the event of a fire it will remain stable for a reasonable period (to facilitate means of escape) 2. resistance to the spread of fire between buildings (to protect occupants in an adjacent building) 3. sub-division of a building in order to limit the size of a compartment fire (to facilitate means of escape) 4. resistance to the unseen spread of fire and smoke within concealed spaces within the building (to facilitate means of escape). Part B of the Building Regulations, is primarily concerned with the health and safety of people in and around buildings. However, another key role that passive fire protection plays is protection of the building and the assets and businesses within. In fact passive fire protection measures required by insurers often exceed those required as a minimum in the guidance to the Building Regulations (Approved Document B).

Elements of building construction required to provide passive fire protection performance must have their performance tested under standardised test conditions against the relevant British or European test standard. The test standards are designed to investigate the fire performance of the different elements of building construction against fully developed fire conditions and it is this performance that is deemed to satisfy the necessary requirements of the building regulations. Certain elements of construction, such as a masonry wall or timber structure, which remain untouched throughout the lifetime of the structure, will continue to provide a level of fire resistance performance similar to when they were first constructed. Other elements of construction are highly unlikely to remain untouched because they are subjected to daily use and wear and tear or because they are in a position that will necessitate new services to pass through. It is therefore important to have a suitable system of maintenance and repair of passive fire protection carried out by personnel with the necessary skills and experience to avoid the fire performance of the building degrading over time. This has been recognised by the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order (RRFSO) under Article 17. The majority of estates and maintenance personnel do have the necessary ability and skills to carry out essential maintenance on the majority of passive fire protection systems. But without the appropriate knowledge of the systems, some techniques being applied may be ineffective and some may even make matters worse. An example could be the replacement of a glazing seal with an intumescent designed for use as a perimeter seal with a door leaf. A seemingly innocuous detail but, due to the high pressure forming capabilities of most door edge seals, this situation could actually force the glazing beads off in a fire leading to premature integrity failure, potentially compromising the means of escape. The requests placed on maintenance personnel are often more onerous than just maintaining items in a suitable state of repair as they are often requested to maintain against the current British test standards and usually they will be asked to do this in the absence of any supporting documentation. Maintaining an element of fire resisting construction against a known specification is made considerably easier because the approved tested systems and details can be applied. Without this information further reliance is placed on the maintenance personnel to identify what is present and what is likely to be a suitable repair or replacement. The absence of documented supporting test evidence for fire resisting construction has been recognised and incorporated within the Building Regulations in the form of Regulation 38 (formerly 16B). This regulation, contained within appendix G of Approved Document B, calls for information on the fire safety provisions and systems incorporated within a new building, or one that has undergone a significant alteration, to be documented and handed over to the building owner on completion.

A damaged lockset has been removed, which has reduced the fire resistance of the door even though the door could be capable of providing the required level of performance

Having access to such supporting test evidence for the passive fire protection measures makes it possible to maintain against a known specification. It would also be possible to identify whether the item in question has been altered since it was first installed. Ultimately it will be the responsible person (as stated in the RRFSO) that will need to demonstrate due diligence when it comes to implementing a suitable programme of maintenance and repair; reliance on individuals who may not have the necessary expertise is likely to have pitfalls. All maintenance personnel should have the necessary skills to carry out the work to a good standard and experience in the field is therefore essential. An appropriate level of specialist training is also required to carry out any repair or maintenance work to a satisfactory level. This is particularly important in the field of fire resistance, especially when considering the number of different systems and products available, the importance of correct detailing and installation and the fundamental role they play in terms of life safety in the event of evacuating a building during a fire. Demonstrating competence could, therefore, be a case of time served plus a suitable training course. There are a number of training courses available and effort should be made to investigate the content of a course to understand whether it provides the necessary breadth and depth to support the particular person(s) maintenance operation. Third party certification schemes also provide a means of demonstrating competence and are generally considered as offering the highest possible level of confidence in the workmanship and certainly demonstrates due diligence on behalf of the responsible person.

There are a number of stages to work through before becoming a registered fire door maintainer. The first is to take the Chiltern International Fire ‘Fire Doors Explained’ course, followed by the BM TRADA ‘Registered installers’ course and examination. It is not a requirement of the scheme for the maintainer to become third party certified for installation but they must have had the necessary training and passed the exam to proceed. The final stage is for the maintainer to sit the BM TRADA ‘Maintenance personnel’ course, which is also followed by an examination. The maintainer will also be audited against the work they have carried out to check that the techniques have been applied correctly and the paperwork supporting the maintenance programme is correctly filled out to provide the responsible person with the necessary information. In the future, it is hoped that by employing third party certified personnel for carrying out maintenance duties, passive fire protection systems will have a longer service life, the costs for repair and replacement will be reduced and, most importantly, the systems will be able to provide the necessary fire resistance should they ever need to do so.

BM TRADA has developed such a third party scheme for fire resisting doors, an item of building construction that is subject to a great deal of wear and tear with a real need for suitable repair and maintenance techniques. Fundamental to the scheme is maintaining the fire doors against a confirmed fire rating, whether confidence in the performance of the door is against test evidence or against a third party opinion provided by a fire risk assessor or other suitably qualified expert. The scheme also provides the maintenance personnel with tools for identifying doors that are unlikely to have fire resistance, which have either been introduced since the building was signed off or are now in a position that would require fire rated performance due to a change in use of the building. It is hoped that such doors would be picked up on the fire risk assessment but this approach provides an additional level of diligence that is intended to prevent a non-rated door being maintained as fire door with proven performance.

Time called on ‘vacuous’ sustainability claims David Venables outlines the American Hardwood Export Council’s approach to Environmental Product Declarations Sustainability has become one of the great buzzwords of the new millennium. The word has become so universal that in 2009 a report on contemporary newspeak by the Centre for Policy Studies claimed it had become ‘heavily used and abused’ and branded it ‘potentially dangerous and vacuous’. The problem is not so much in the word itself, but in the fact that sustainability is so often poorly understood and rarely applied with rigour. Policy-makers and practitioners have also often lacked the tools necessary

to put genuine sustainability into practice. However, in recent years, great strides have been made in Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), the scientific analysis of the full environmental impact of products and materials from cradle to grave to give a fair and rounded assessment. Nevertheless, LCA has limitations and there is still scope for further refinement. LCA involves collection and evaluation of quantitative data on all the inputs and outputs of material, energy and waste flows associated with a product over its entire life cycle so that the environmental impacts can be determined. The LCA process has become increasingly refined and standardised in recent years and is now subject to the ISO14040 series of international standards. A major output of LCA is the preparation of Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), an important tool for communication of product-specific LCA data to specifiers and end-users.

EPDs are designed to allow fair comparison of the environmental performance of products through provision of structured, science based, and verified information. EPDs provide information along the product’s entire supply chain, are designed to be neutral with no valuebased judgements, and are required to be verified for accuracy by an independent third party. EPDs can be prepared by industry associations for generic products (for example ‘American white oak lumber’) or by companies for specific product lines. EPDs for construction products are usually modular: an EPD for American white oak lumber needs to combine with an EPD for glass and other components to produce an EPD for a window unit. Many European countries have developed national EPD programmes. These include the UK together with France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Scandinavian countries. The best known scheme in the UK is that developed by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) which since the mid-1990s has gathered information from UK manufacturing industry and amassed it into an environmental profiles database. This database is a major component of the BRE’s Green Guide to Building Specification which is used in the government’s Code for Sustainable Homes and in the BRE’s environmental rating system for buildings called BREEAM. To provide comparability and consistency, EPDs for specific product groups are prepared in line with Product Category Rules (PCR). EPDs

are published by a Programme Operator such as BRE Global, EPD Norge or IBU in Germany using a PCR. At present there is variation in the PCRs used for construction products by national EPD programmes. This means they use different environmental indicators and lay out LCA data in a different way. However the process of harmonising EPDs is proceeding rapidly as EU Member States prepare to implement the legally binding Construction Products Regulation (CPR) which, from July 2013, will replace the existing Construction Products Directive. The CPR aims to remove barriers to internal trade in construction products by establishing harmonised standards for performance, both technical and environmental. The CPR states that, when available, EPDs should be used to meet standards for environmental performance for construction products. In February this year, the EU Technical Committee CEN/TC 350 which develops standards for sustainable construction, published EN15804 providing core rules for construction product EPDs. A project launched by the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) is a good illustration of the LCA and EPD process in the wood products sector. AHEC’s project had two main objectives: first to ensure full conformance to ISO 14040 to ensure the credibility of the data; and second to make the LCA data available in a form that it is useful to decision-makers in material specification and product design.

Technically, the AHEC project involves a ‘cradle to grave plus transport’ assessment of USA hardwoods delivered into export markets. The project covers the full range of USA hardwood species and involves collection of the data required to prepare EPDs for both lumber and veneer in any USA export market. AHEC commissioned PE International (PE), an independent company with global reach, to undertake the work and invited an international team of experts to join a Critical Review Panel.

The Critical Review Panel signed off on the Background Report and ‘i-report’ in March 2012 confirming its full conformance to ISO14040. As such, all the data it contains can now be used for preparation of EPDs in line with national programmes in any major export market.

PE spent 12 months gathering and compiling life cycle inventory data for the all processes required to grow, harvest, transport, convert and deliver USA hardwoods to major export markets. Data was collected directly from AHEC member companies and supplemented by analysis of USA forest resource data and existing life cycle inventory data from PE’s own proprietary and a range of public databases. All this data was managed and analysed by PE using their proprietary Gabi software. Preliminary output consisted of a comprehensive Background Report to be assessed by the Critical Review Panel. The report contains analysis of USA hardwood lumber’s environmental profile including numerical data on Global Warming Potential (GWP – better known as carbon footprint), Acidification Potential (AP), Eutrophication Potential (EP), Photochemical Ozone Creation Potential (POCP), and Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP). It also includes qualitative assessment of USA hardwood’s impact on toxicity, biodiversity, land use and land use change, and water resources. It identifies processes along the supply chain (forestry, sawing, kilning, transport) which are most important in determining each of these impacts. A challenge for AHEC was how to produce a single ISO-conformant Background Report covering environmental impacts across a wide range of hardwoods delivered into any one of over 50 export markets worldwide. PE solved this problem by supplementing the report with an on-line ‘i-report’ which allows a wide variety of environmental profiles to be dynamically generated by altering key variables including species, lumber thickness, processing parameters (such as kiln efficiency and energy sources), transport distances and modes (truck, ship, rail).

There is an important need now for other material suppliers – both wood and non-wood to prepare EPDs and create a critical mass of standardised LCA data. This will allow manufacturers and fabricators to quickly and efficiently prepare EPDs for the products they deliver to construction sites. Introduction of the CPR is likely to give this process considerable impetus across the European construction sector. Sunrise in Owen Park in Madison, Wisconsin. Photo: J. Martin, JMAR Foto Werks

There is also a need to integrate the EPD data into modelling systems which allow contractors, designers and their clients to dynamically assess environmental impacts alongside other key design criteria (such as cost) early on in the design process. Efforts are now being made to develop software linking 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Building Information Models (BIM) directly to LCA data for construction materials. For example the IMPACT tool is being developed by a UK consortium funded by the UK Technology Strategy Board. Meanwhile AHEC is working alongside PE and the UK contemporary furniture company, Benchmark, to develop a modelling system for the furniture sector which is of particular strategic importance for USA hardwoods. The furniture ‘i-report’ system combines the environmental life cycle data gathered on USA hardwoods with equivalent data for other materials and components (such as glues, screws and stains) used in furniture manufacturing derived from PE’s databases. To test the system, and as a preliminary demonstration of its power, a dozen Royal College of Art students were recently set the task of designing a seat with ‘sustainability’ established as a key design requirement at the very start. Then they manufactured a prototype at the Benchmark facility recording precisely the amount of material and energy used and fed this data into the model. The result was a comprehensive environmental profile of each seat measuring environmental effects across a range of impact categories. All the prototypes, together with the environmental profiles, were put on display in a major exhibition, ‘Out of the Woods’ at the Victoria and Albert Museum during the London Design Festival in September 2012. A technical publication and iPad App about the project are available on AHEC’s website The exhibition was a vivid demonstration of how, through recent developments in LCA and EPDs, it will soon be possible for furniture designs to be amended to produce genuine sustainability gains before going into mass production. The days of ‘vacuous’ sustainability claims may soon be over.

What do buil ders rea lly want? Tony Traynor follows the trend towards online information, smartphones and ‘apps’ There has been a lot of talk over recent years about levels of competence in the small builder sector, particularly with the scarcity of apprenticeships. This is a concern for the timber industry, whose reputation is literally in the hands of builders and builders’ merchants, who see a lack of understanding or confidence in using timber as a barrier to sales. In 2010, Swedish Wood conducted an in-store research survey of over 300 builders, carpenters, joiners and landscapers, in major merchants, to find out whether there was as much of a problem as they suspected and what could be done to improve levels of competence and confidence. The research found that builders tended to own their own business (66%) while carpenters and joiners were more likely to be employed or sub-contracted. It also found that builders – the group most likely to be responsible for managing staff – have the fewest qualifications; only 44% had NVQ levels 1, 2 and 3 or City & Guilds, compared with 82% of carpenters and 76% of joiners.

Materia ls


The research suggested that, as builders were generally busy, they relied on the timber industry and its suppliers to keep them up to date with product changes and best practice through their merchant. When pressed for how they would like to receive other helpful information, they preferred simple leaflets with guidance easily digestible in key fact formats. It is of course likely that builders will make increasing use of electronic formats as they become more dependent on their computers and smartphones. Builders commented they wanted to be able to view key fact information on a wide range of non-technical timber topics and issues (they knew they could use websites such as TRADA for in-depth information). Topics ranged from concise information about treatment Use Classes, to how to choose and fix the correct products for timber cladding, strength grading classes of timber in construction projects, and issues surrounding fitting wooden flooring in conjunction with under floor heating. Over half of builders used the internet for business, mainly for price and product information, unlike carpenters or joiners, who were unlikely to make use of it for business at all. This suggested that, approached correctly, the internet could be a useful way to provide information to builders that would, in turn, be passed on to their teams. The research concluded that there was a need for information, particularly for basic facts aimed at builders, and that a simple ‘timber facts’ leaflet that could be developed in electronic formats, would be the place to start. At this point the initial initiative moved forward in partnership with Jewson and Buildbase and industry partners, Wood for Good, TRADA, the Timber Decking and Cladding Association and the Wood Window Alliance. It was agreed that the priorities would be to enhance staff training and provide simple key fact information to the merchants’ customers through leaflets and an online portal.

The results can be seen in the Jewson ‘Pocket Guide to Timber’ (to be followed by a Buildbase guide), the Wood Campus Pocket Guide to Timber, Wood Campus, (the new timber industry information and learning portal), the Wood Campus App and TRADA’s Wood Species App. Wood Campus is a resource that has a wider audience than just builders; for example, it includes an updated version of the Wood for Good RIBA-accredited CPD online learning courses. A lot of work has gone into making it a relevant and approachable resource for builders and builders’ merchant staff. In addition to an updated and extended range of TRADA’s Choose and Use builders’ factsheets, it offers short ‘fast track’ CPD modules, a series of even shorter ‘90-second knowhows’, and trade and product information. From the builder’s point of view, perhaps the most relevant development is the Wood Campus Smartphone App. This is completely free, acting as ‘the expert in your pocket’. Designed to complement Wood Campus as mobile support to professional builders whose business is wood, the app gives fingertip access to information, including Trade Tips and links through to the major distributors and product suppliers, as well as Campus features, such as 90-second know-hows, videos and TRADA’s Choose and Use sheets.

New teeth for CE marking of construc tion products David Payne explains how the new Construction Products Regulation transforms the landscape for selling construction products From July 2013, CE marking of construction products will be compulsory in the UK for many construction products. The new Construction Products Regulation (CPR) will affect a huge range of construction products in the UK, from screws through to panel products and even complete three-dimensional buildings. This is a significant change. It means that manufacturers, importers or distributors of many construction products are going to have a legal obligation. Similarly, specifiers or architects, indeed anyone with an interest in regulations, will also need to be aware of their obligations to choose the right products.

W hat is it? Essentially, the Construction Products Regulation is an improved version of the Construction Products Directive (CPD). It requires that construction products should be fit for purpose and therefore safe. If the products comply, then a company can apply a CE mark. The CPR places certain legal responsibilities on manufacturers, distributors and importers of construction products. Being a regulation, it is more powerful than a directive; as a regulation it goes straight into law in each member state, with no need for national implementation legislation.

CE marked plywood

relating to manufacturers, distributors and importers come into force on 1st July 2013. In addition, building regulations and associated guidance in the UK will be updated in 2013, presumably to reflect the changes required by the CPR.

What chan ges have t here been?

T imesca l es

In terms of the performance considerations that need to be considered for CE marking, what were called the ‘six essential requirements’ for consideration under the CPD have become the ‘seven basic works requirements’. These are: • mechanical resistance and stability • safety in case of fire • hygiene, health and the environment • safety and accessibility in use • protection against noise • energy economy and heat retention • sustainable use of natural resources (this is a new requirement).

The CPR was published in the official journal of the European Union in April 2011. Those aspects relating to notified bodies, and the way in which they operate, came into force 20 days later. The full measures

These seven measures determine how a company would declare whether a product was fit for purpose and, ultimately, safe in the construction.

The CPR aims to improve and revitalise the Construction Products Directive, which has been in existence in the UK since 1991. It’s designed to: • improve the transparency of existing measures • improve the credibility of the directive • reduce the financial burden on small manufacturers • clarify obligations to apply the mark • improve enforcement.

N ew names f or old terms The Attestation of Conformity (AoC) concept remains, but is now called the Assessment and Verification of Constancy of Performance (AVCP) and has been simplified slightly as level 2 has been dropped.

What needs doin g to permit CE marking? The technical specification will give each product an AVCP (Assessment and Verification of Constancy of Performance) level. In simple terms this level is basically the ‘who does what’ to allow CE marking.

CE Marking for glulam

CE Marking for OSB wall sheathing

In broad terms the technical specification will spell out the requirements for: • initial type testing (ITT) • factory production control (FPC) • an on-going test program.

The original CPD took the approach that manufacturers of construction products typically sold direct to the end user. This is not the case – in fact, frequently there is a whole chain of importers and distributors between the manufacturer and the end user.

Once the requirements are met, then certification may be required and the manufacturer can apply the CE mark and make a legal declaration of performance.

Instead, the CPR takes more of a ‘chain of custody’ approach. The importers and distributors have almost as much responsibility for ensuring the products they trade in comply, as the manufacturers. Essentially, this means that a company cannot knowingly trade in a product that should have a CE mark but doesn’t have one.

The concept of AVCP levels is due to the huge range of products governed by the CPR. In terms of harmonised standards, there are at the time of this article 423 standards that sit under the CPR. Not all products need to be treated in the same way, and this table is effectively a measure of ‘hazard’.

A company must keep the ‘declaration of performance’ on record and make it available to the competent authority, if required. Similarly, importers and distributors must reassure themselves that the manufacturer has met their obligations, even extending as far as working with the enforcing authorities.

The six levels AVCP (formerly AoC) of the CPD have been reduced to five – 1+, 1, 2+, 3, 4. Counter-intuitively, 4 is the lowest or least onerous level, and +1 is the highest. An example of a level 4 product would be wood flooring where, if that product failed during construction, it would be unlikely to cause a fatality. A product such as concrete would be rated 1+, where if it failed, such as on a motorway bridge, it could potentially be extremely hazardous. This table defines the conformity tasks and who takes responsibility for what, particularly the tasks for the notified body.

How do you g ain a C E mark ? There are different routes to gaining a CE mark. The first option would be to follow a harmonised European standard. Where there are no harmonised standards then there is the European Technical Approval route to CE marking, which is essentially a ‘bespoke standard’ for the individual product or system for each individual manufacturer. Under the CPR the European Technical Approval becomes a European Technical Assessment. These assessments will be drafted in accordance with a guideline called a European Assessment Document. This is the plan for how bodies like BM TRADA Certification carry out these assessments. Organisations conducting such assessments are called Technical Assessment Bodies (TABs).

En f orcement It’s fair to say the CPD wasn’t taken very seriously, particularly in the UK; the CPR aims to improve enforcement across the EU. The CPR clarifies the actions to be taken by the ‘enforcing authority’ (EA), which is the Trading Standards Institute for the UK. In cases of noncompliance then the EA shall take steps to prohibit, restrict or withdraw the product in the market.

N eed to act now CE Marking for MDF

CE Marking for trussed rafter

Ot her c h ang es CPR took on criticism that it was very complicated, particularly for a small manufacturer. The Regulation makes it clear that costly testing should be minimised if possible. This may be achieved by: • ‘deemed to satisfy’ – products of the same type with a long history of use are going to do the job • using data from other manufacturers • using data for components already used within a kit. Compliance is now also easier for micro-enterprises. If a company has less than 10 employees and a turnover equal to, or below €2 million, certain aspects may be simplified as follows: • For AVCP levels of 3 or 4, the manufacturer may use alternative but equivalent forms of type testing. The exact details of this are still to be finalised. • The manufacturer may effectively downgrade their approach from AVCP 3 down to 4. Again, how this will work has yet to be seen.

There are a number of practical effects that mean acting now to ensure compliance by 1st July 2013. After this date, Without a CE mark, companies whose products are covered by a harmonised standard will not be able to sell their products in Europe. The CPR should have more ‘teeth’ than the CPD as it is clearly a legal requirement. Failure to comply can result in products being removed from the market, and even possible jail sentences for persistent non or false declaration.

E urocode 5 and CE Marking Keerthi Ranasinghe peels back the CE mark to reveal the wealth of information for designers driven by the Construction Products Regulation The Eurocodes are standards that establish common rules across the European Economic Area for structural design using any material. They allow a designer to prove compliance with the requirements of the European Construction Products Regulation and national building regulations. Considerable research from most of the member states has gone into these standards and they are continually supported by a review every five years. National standards bodies are required to help in the review process by collating the information relevant to their jurisdictions. BS EN 1995, more commonly known as Eurocode 5 (EC5), is the standard for structural timber design. It replaces the BS 5268 family of Standards.

E uroc ode 5 v. BS 5268 Eurocode 5 contains only the essential rules and general formulae for design. It is formula driven and lacks the quick look-up tables of BS 5268-2. Figure 1: Calculations the ‘BS 5368’ way

Structures & E urocode 5


Figure 2: Calculations the ‘EC5’ way

Initially, this could be the single biggest drawback for the designers in the UK, who are used to BS 5268-2. Also, EC5 contains very little practical detail and construction advice due to national differences. However, the recently published PD 6693 contains much complementary information for use in the UK.

Limit states The fundamental difference between Eurocode 5 and BS 5268-2 is their approach to design. BS 5268-2 used ‘permissible’ or ‘allowable’ stress design’ whereas EC5 uses ‘limit state design’, bringing timber design in line with other materials such as steel and concrete. Table 1: How the Standards compare

To check ultimate limit states, the designer uses characteristic values of the loads (termed ‘actions’ in EC5) and of the material properties, which are then modified by partial factors to arrive at design values.

Stru ctures & Euroc ode 5


T imber Industry Yearbook 2013

Structures & E urocode 5


Design values are usually higher for the loads and lower for the material properties than their respective characteristic values.

M aterials and desi g n data EC5 uses ‘characteristic’ properties of materials that differ from the ‘grade stress’ values given in BS 5268-2. Grade stress values were already reduced for long-term load duration and included a safety factor. Characteristic values, on the other hand, are derived from a statistical analysis of laboratory test results and are generally higher than the grade stress values. EC5 does not list any characteristic values, for which the designer should consult other standards or manufacturer’s data. Compulsory factors to take account of safety, load duration and environmental conditions are applied, irrespective of the design situation, to convert the characteristic values to ‘design’ values.

Table 3: Strength of materials – other standards



Conne ctions ‘Connections’ is the longest and the most complex topic covered in EC5. Unlike BS5268, no tables of capacities are presented; the designer is required to solve seemingly complex equations specific to the design situation. The equations require product characteristics such as yield strength of the fastener material, data related to the thread etc for fasteners such as screws. Figure 2 shows typical EC5 calculations. For some of the complex screw types as many as twelve different parameters may be required to solve the equations. Some of these parameters may be obtained by referring to the Harmonized European Standard for dowel type fasteners, EN 14592. However, it is in the manufacturer’s interest to declare their own properties to get the edge over competing products.

Table 2: Other standards


This can be very complicated. For some of the standard products like solid structural timber, you have values from the BSI published standards that can be used. But for other items like panel products, the manufacturer may declare values different from that of the standards. The designer has the option of using either the standard values or the manufacturer declared values. CE marking facilitates this declaration process by regulating what properties to be verified and made available to the designer for the product under consideration.

Connection design need not be a drama if: • Parameters 1 – 12 are all declared during the CE marking process. • The parameters are made available in the market where the screws are sold. • Designers use these for calculations to EC5. Figure 3 shows how easy it becomes using TRADA’s timberconnectionsPro. Figure 3: Rapid screw design that takes account of up to 12 parameters

Streng th g radin g Solid timber must be strength graded, either visually or by machine, to comply with the Construction Products Regulation. EC5 cites the relevant standards with which all timbers and panel products must comply and specifies some design factors such as reference dimensions for calculations. Once graded, the characteristic values for design purposes can be obtained from other European standards depending on the strength classes the timbers are assigned to.

Wood- based pane ls Wood-based panels for permanent incorporation within a building must comply with the Construction Products Regulation, achieved by compliance with BS EN 13986. This standard in turn refers to a series of product standards for specifications and requirements for each panel product type.

In summary, Eurocode 5 will not work in the intended way until the manufacturers and importers declare the correct parameters specific to their materials and products. The European Products Regulation and CE marking provide the platform to do this and it is time for the manufacturers to act now, before the impending deadline of July 2013.

STA K EH O LD ERS WORK TO GET H ER TO PUB LICISE T HE BENE F ITS O F N E W T I M BER FASTENER STANDARDS From the 1st of July 2013, when the Construction Products Regulation comes into force, it will become mandatory to use CE-marked fasteners for making structural connections in timber construction. The members of the PFA (Power Fastenings Association) are committed to ensuring that the UK market will be supplied with properly marked fasteners in advance of the deadline. The fasteners must meet the requirements of EN1995 Eurocode 5: Design of Timber Structures as evidenced by CE marking in accordance with EN14592: Dowel Type Fasteners for Timber Structures. This new approach moves from treating fasteners as generic and non-critical, to requiring that key performance criteria are determined by independent testing and that defined data is provided to design engineers. TRADA Technology (the technical service provider for TRADA the Timber Research and Development Association), an internationally recognised centre of excellence on the specification and use of timber and wood products, has been actively involved in the evolution of the new design code and product standards and is leading the drive to educate all stakeholders about the important changes inherent in the new code. It is also a Notified Laboratory for testing fasteners to EN 14592. The UK Timber Frame Association (UKTFA), representing the majority of timber frame manufacturers, joins TRADA Technology and the PFA in welcoming Eurocode 5 and harmonised product standards such as EN14592, which strengthen further the timber frame sector’s ability to provide tightly engineered buildings, at the same time as delivering sustainability and economic efficiency. The UKTFA, TRADA Technology and the PFA are committed to working together to promote compliance with the Construction Products Regulation as an integral part of demonstrating how the professional ethos, design rules and construction control of timber frame are more than a match for those governing masonry and steel construction.

Timber steps up to Green D eal wit h cladding for solid masonry dwellin gs Lewis Taylor outlines TRADA’s solution to insulate the 6 million hard-to-treat dwellings of solid masonry construction. Britain’s housing stock has a relatively poor thermal performance compared to our northern European neighbours. Combining poor thermal performance with an increasing population and the rising unit cost of energy has created the ‘perfect storm’ of spiralling energy bills and carbon emissions. Having radically strengthened the building regulations (for new build) the Government is moving attention to the vast existing housing stock. Given that increased insulation in lofts is a relatively ‘easy’ win, the next target for improvement is external walls. For solid walls (without cavities), the options are to add insulation to either the internal or external faces of walls. Running alongside poor thermal performance is the unattractive appearance of some existing dwellings, especially those in the public and private rental sectors. TRADA’s proposal is an externally applied system that achieves both objectives: • to improve thermal performance • to improve the appearance of external elevations.

Green Deal Improving energy efficiency is nothing new and there have been many government-sponsored schemes to subsidise improvements. What is different today is that the Government is moving away from subsidies towards encouraging consumers to invest in energy-saving measures. For example, the rationale of the Government’s Green Deal is that consumers will ‘borrow’ the cost of improvements and repay it via a surcharge levied by their energy supplier, while enjoying an overall reduction in their energy bill.

The imperative to save energy is driving a new industry that requires assessors to consider the thermal performance of existing dwelling and select a ‘system’ of improvements that will be economically viable. Assessors will draw on a range of verified systems when deciding on the best solution for a particular situation.

Opportunity to improve appearance and val ue Solutions that involve adding insulation to the outside offer a further benefit – a chance to improve the appearance of dwellings. This is of particular relevance to housing associations and local authorities who maintain large numbers of social housing landlords, particularly terraced houses. If the existing facade does not need to be retained (for its heritage value) then overcladding becomes an attractive option because it can improve the appearance and value of housing estates that have become ‘run down’ while simultaneously improving energy efficiency.

Solutions involvin g timber The greatest need for thermal improvements in the UK’s housing stock is in dwellings with uninsulated, solid, external walls. In England alone, there are some 6 million dwellings matching this description, approximately a third of the existing housing stock. Of the ‘internal’ and ‘external’ insulation options, the best opportunity to exploit the benefits of timber is in overcladding the uninsulated solid wall dwellings. However, the potential number suitable for this improvement may reduce where local planning demands that existing masonry facades be retained and where buildings are physically unsuitable for overcladding with timber. Naturally, the devil will be in the detail. So TRADA is offering an initial concept to enable designers to develop details that are suitable for particular situations. TRADA will extend and/or amend the details offered as the industry gains experience with this novel form of home improvement. TRADA encourages designers and installers to feedback their observations.

TRADA’s proposals are available free to members at The details show the proposed construction and include U-values of surfaces, ψ-values of junctions, isotherm and heat flux diagrams.

Up g rade strate gy Having made the ‘easy wins’ in loft insulation, leakage, and replacement windows and doors, the owner of a solid masonry dwelling should: • Consider the opportunity for improving thermal performance and building appearance. • By initial inspection, establish the exact nature of the construction and develop an upgrading strategy. • Use SAP or other modelling tools to establish as-built performance. • Define an upgrading solution, using best practice details to inform and develop the final solutions. • Remember the importance of thermal bridging and condensation risk calculations. • Link the external envelope upgrading to a ventilation strategy in order to deliver a thermally efficient and healthy dwelling. • Consider also the fire resistance and reaction to fire of any overcladding system as well as potential improvements to acoustic performance, aesthetic and property values. • Take account of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM) for installation, maintenance and repair. • Define the installation process overview and key watch points. • Ensure the solution deals with all modifications to the existing property, such as window reveal extensions, eaves extension, fixing of rainwater goods, porch or canopy, air bricks, meter boxes and service penetrations. • Devise a process for owners and occupiers to adapt to changes that arise during and after the upgrading. Engage tenant associations and liaison officers in discussions.

Solutions and material s Internal wall insulation (IWI) solutions This typically involves battening out walls, usually with timber, and fixing insulated thermal board and linings or insulation backed plasterboard. Advantages of internal solutions: • Suitable for void (vacant) properties on account of potential disruption. • Effective against thermal bridging. • Can be accomplished with relatively low skilled labour. Disadvantages of internal solutions: • Room sizes are reduced. • Installation is highly intrusive for the people living in the property. • Relocation of occupiers during the works may be necessary. • Careful detailing of building services and fire protection measures is necessary. • The risk of interstitial condensation and associated limits on U-Values.

External wall insulation (EWI) solutions This typically involves fixing insulation with adhesives or mechanical fixing followed by a system build-up, often including glass reinforced mesh, and render layers or cladding such as timber. Advantages of external solutions: • There is no loss of floor space. • Disruption to occupiers is minimal.



T imber Industry Yearbook 2013

• Thermal performance, external appearance and property value are improved in one step. • Maintains the thermal mass of the building within the insulated envelope, which helps to stabilise internal temperature. Disadvantages of external solutions: • Planning permission may be needed. • Depending on the material selected, long-term maintenance of the cladding may be more expensive than the existing masonry. • Requires more skilled labour than the internal solution. • Typically more expensive than the internal solution. • The details for external cladding are more complex than internal lining.

C l adding materia ls If an EWI solution is preferred, the next decision is the cladding system. Usually there are three options – bricks, render and timber. All have their merits in different situations.

Peripheral products This is easily overlooked and requires research before adopting a particular upgrade solution. Problems can arise as designers develop the construction details. In some cases, the products ‘don’t exist’ or need to be adapted to suit. Examples include cost-effective window sill extensions, air brick extensions, meter box adjustments, ventilation components for highly insulated roofs, airtightness membranes and tapes.

Associated work If not already done, desirable associated work includes: • draughtproofing of penetrations and loft hatches • replacement windows and doors • mechanically ventilated heat recovery system.

Insu lated timber over claddin g system

Timber’s unique features offer many benefits when used as cladding. Features


Timber cladding is readily available with chain-of-custody certification.

The timber comes from a well-managed, sustainable source, which can improve the environmental rating of any building.

Timber cladding can be made from a variety of softwood, hardwood and modified woods.

The designer has many options when considering the appearance, durability and weathering characteristics.

Different species respond in different ways to exposure to the weather.

Depending on the degree of exposure, the desired service life and the durability of the species, designers can select cladding that is either finished or unfinished. Finishes range from an ‘enhanced’ timber look to bright colours. In its unfinished form, cladding weathers to a ‘bleached’ appearance in a generally predictable way.

Timber cladding is relatively easy to work.

With competent supervision, the installation of cladding is a relatively low-skilled operation.

Timber cladding comes in many sizes and profiles.

Designers have a wide range of visual options in the choice of layout, profile, and dimensions of boards.

Timber is a light-weight material.

Adding insulated timber cladding generally has a negligible effect on the structure and foundations. Timber cladding panels may be suitable for prefabrication.

Timber cladding is relatively thin.

The total system thickness will be predominantly determined by the insulation thickness.

Timber cladding installation is a totally ‘dry process’.

There are no delays inherent in wet trades.

Wa l l insul ation materia ls The insulation material should, ideally, be fire resistant and suitable for installing between the battens. TRADA Technology recommends mineral wool particularly because it is easy to install between the battens (which might not be installed at the ‘ideal’ regular spacing needed for pre-cut solid materials).

The sequence of installation is: vertical timber battens fixed to the masonry 1st layer of insulation installed between vertical battens horizontal timber counter battens fixed to the vertical battens 2nd layer of insulation installed between counter battens breather membrane wrapped around building vertical timber cladding battens fixed to counter battens horizontal timber cladding fixed to cladding battens. The solution is intended for dwellings up to three storeys in height. It may be used in detached, semi-detached and terraced dwellings. The battens are specified in two layers because deep battens are difficult to install and because the double layer design minimises thermal bridging. The details are based on the existing building consisting of solid brick or stone walls with timber pitched roofs. The eaves and verge roof

overhang will be sufficiently large or modifications will be included to extend the rafters and gable verge detail to accommodate the additional thickness of insulation and cladding. Designers should ensure their design takes account of the condition of the existing building, in particular to accommodate variable finishes and alignments. And they should assess the impact that improvements will have on ventilation and risk of condensation. The fire provisions for cladding in the building regulations require careful consideration in the context of the position and configuration of the existing dwelling(s). • Spread of fire – Depending on the space separation between buildings it may be necessary to specify an appropriate fire retardant treatment. Designers must ensure that the fire retardant and any preservative and finish are compatible. • Concealed spaces (cavities) – Cavity barriers are required to restrict the spread of fire within cavities. Because of the insulation and the regular spacing of the cladding battens as well as the installation of additional battens when needed, a conventional horizontal board cladding system comprises a series of shallow vertical cavities, separated by the cladding battens. The use of intumescent cavity barriers permits the cavity to have through ventilation ensuring the durability of the timber cladding.

From tiny acorns C heshire Oaks has g rown Alasdair McGregor describes how a client’s insistence on FSC®-certified timber boosted the supply of ‘FSC’ glulam When, in 1894, Tom Spencer invested £300 in a business started by Michael Marks, little could the two entrepreneurs have dreamed how their Penny Bazaar partnership would develop. And if the two businessmen could see the latest M&S masterpiece which grew from that £300 ‘acorn’, Cheshire Oaks, they would be justly proud.

long and distinguished history; principles which have driven the Cheshire Oaks development, close to Ellesmere Port in Cheshire. Cheshire Oaks has been hailed as the biggest greenest M&S, built using innovations that have pushed boundaries and taken major-development sustainability to a new level. Arguably, its most enduring achievement may be the engineering boundaries that have been redefined during its construction, particularly in the use of wood. From the outset, M&S insisted that only FSCcertified wood could be used in the project in line with its Plan A commitment. This presented a challenge for the development contractor, Simons Group, as the scheme involved a huge amount of engineered timber, not typically seen as an FSC-certified product. After meeting with BM TRADA Certification to clarify the criteria required under FSC Project Certification, Simons Group decided to take this route. Simons Group and their suppliers pressed ahead, working hard to meet M&S’s expectations and meet certification requirements, and in July 2012, as Cheshire Oaks approached completion, BM TRADA Certification awarded full FSC Project Certification (TT-PRO-003615: 2012). The certification covered wood used at every stage of construction – and there’s a lot of wood in Cheshire Oaks, of varying types and from a myriad of sources. The roof contains 1400m3 of glulam, Canadian Western red cedar graces the external cladding and the brise soleil, and certified wood forms the modular walling carcasses and laminated veneered lumber in the structural flooring. Then there’s all the general internal joinery timber, feature benches made from recycled oak sourced from the site clearance. Even bat and bird boxes dotted about the site

are made from recycled FSC-certified offcuts. Auditing was carried out at each key stage of the development. Cheshire Oaks claims to be the first retail building in the UK to have an entirely FSC structural frame, developed in conjunction with B&K Timber Structures, a departure from the traditional steel design which itself challenged the glulam market. The result? FSC-certified glulam is now more commonly available. The sweeping roof structure, comprising curved glulam beams each up to 15 metres in length and secured with gleaming steel bolts, is a wondrous creation, and its beauty belies its strength. In fire testing, glulam outperformed steel. All products used in the timber-frame structure were 3D modelled, to ensure the design was fully integrated before any manufacturing started, and to ensure minimum waste of materials. Ed Dixon, Sustainability Champion for Simons Group, said every single one of the glulam beams in the store fitted perfectly. ’No recuts, no shaving – they were pieced together perfectly- like a massive Meccano set,’ he said. ’It was built by hand by guys on a cherry-picker using a huge rubber hammer and oversized spanner. Physically, it was very demanding, labour-intensive, but the results speak for themselves.’

Of the many lessons learned along this eight-year journey, as far as ensuring the FSC certification processes were in place, Ed Dixon stressed the importance of engaging with sub-contractors early in the process to define and agree the objectives from the outset. Security monitoring carried out at the site gates ensured only bona fide materials came on site. 100% of waste has been diverted from landfill, with 87.5% of all waste segregated on site. In terms of sustainability, it would be easy to wax lyrical about Cheshire Oaks, with its 80,000 litre rainwater harvesting tank, green wall planting on car park elevations, biomass boiler and heat reclaim from refrigeration, and superinsulated breathable hemcrete and hemp insulation panels (another retail first), its electric car charging points and landscaping designed to attract wildlife – but why not find out for yourself?

Home-grown cross-laminated timber – pipe dream or realistic proposition ? Peter Wilson thinks the question is ‘when’ not ‘whether’ In January 2011 Edinburgh Napier University’s Forest Products Research Institute embarked upon R&D aimed at bringing cross-laminated timber into commercial production in the UK using home-grown timber. The project arose from a visit by senior Scottish Government politicians to the site of the country’s first Housing Expo in August 2010; they discovered that many of the innovative products and construction systems employed to deliver low-energy homes came from overseas. In particular, the visible evidence of the cross-laminated timber, which four of the 55 houses were constructed from, prompted the question as to why this particular engineered timber product was not manufactured in Scotland from home-grown timber. The upshot? A directive from the Scottish Government to progress the research and development necessary to deliver the objective data upon which commercial investment decisions by industry might be made. And so a 20-month manufacturing and testing operation began in January 2011 with Scottish Government money augmented by resources already committed by Scottish Enterprise, Forestry Commission Scotland and the European Regional Development Fund to the Wood Products Innovation Gateway programme led by Edinburgh Napier University’s Forest Products Research Institute.

Competition Before anyone becomes too over-excited by the idea of the UK timber industry competing directly with the several large-scale mid-European cross-laminated timber manufacturers, it should be recognized that our forest resource is considerably smaller than those existing in Austria, southern Germany and Switzerland and that the levels of investment underpinning the impressive production facilities operated by heavyweights Binderholz, KLH, Metsä Wood, Mayr Melnhof Kaufmann and Stora Enso are not so easily matched in the UK. Realistically, while a home-grown product can undoubtedly find a place in the rapidly expanding UK market for cross-laminated timber, the more limited timber resource available will always ensure it can never fully substitute for the excellent engineered timber products we import from mainland Europe.

Edinburgh Napier University held a conference in October 2012 to disseminate the findings of the project to an invited audience of senior figures in the UK timber industry. Entitled Manufacturing cross-laminated timber from the UK forest resource, the conference programme addressed all the important issues, including the opportunity offered by more local manufacture of cross-laminated timber, the extent of the available resource, manufacturing issues, the results of extensive structural testing and the performance of the home-grown product, the prevailing and anticipated regulatory framework and the vital question of the potential market for home-grown cross-laminated timber. For some in the audience that day, much of the information presented undoubtedly came as a welcome surprise; for others – particularly those who had contributed to the project’s industry supply chain steering group – the results were simply confirmation that cross-laminated timber production in the UK using home-grown timber was eminently possible.

Resources in Scotl and Underlying the economic case for domestic production is of course the opportunity to add considerable value to Scottish forest production and the potential to sustain the 13,200 mainly rural jobs currently supported by the industry. While only 17% of Scotland’s landmass is forested, the country contains the bulk of the UK’s plantation species, 62% of which

is Sitka spruce. The standing volume of spruce felled in 2011 was 7.7 million m3, of which 33% went to construction, with the bulk of the rest going to lower value products such as fencing, pallets and packaging. Estimates, at that stage, of the volume of timber necessary to ensure a viable cross-laminated timber production facility range from 15,000 m3 to 70,000 m3. And with forest production forecasts for the next 25 years indicating even larger volumes of sawn wood available than the record 1.67 million m3 produced in 2011, it is reasonable to assume that sufficient resource exists now and into the future to support cross-laminated timber production in Scotland.

More research, development and testing is required in the areas of adhesive bond strength and fixing details, but the essential information is now in place for a potential manufacturer to take up the baton and upscale the work carried out date. This will of course require some serious decisions on the location and scale of any manufacturing facility as well as assurance that the volumes of timber necessary to achieve viable production levels can be readily and consistently obtained. Confidence in the extent of market share that can be secured is of course vital, a volatile question dependent to a large extent upon recovery in the construction sector.

Suitabil ity o f h ome -g rown timber

In the end it will come down to the level of investment required to establish a commercially viable cross-laminated timber manufacturing facility in the UK, so will it actually happen?

So having put the resource issue to bed, the next question often raised is whether the quality of UK grown timber is good enough for cross-laminated timber production? Some 95% of spruce sawn wood is graded as being of strength class C16 and tests at Edinburgh Napier University have shown that, when glued and hydraulically pressed into cross laminated panels, the final result is eminently capable of meeting the various European standards applying to this particular engineered timber product. The proof is in the pudding, however, and the remaining question as to whether a home-grown product can be suitable for use in commercial construction has been demonstrated in its use in the visitor centre built on the BRE Innovation Park at Ravenscraig near Motherwell. While not part of the Edinburgh Napier University project, the opportunity to provide material for the shear wall in the visitor centre coincided with the completion of the production run of panels intended for structural testing. Having achieved the highest possible BREEAM rating, the finished building provides an impressive showcase for the home-grown cross-laminated timber product.

N e x t steps So what is the next stage in bringing cross-laminated timber into commercial manufacture in the UK using timber from the country’s forest estate?

There are many good reasons why it is increasingly likely. Cross-laminated timber will unquestionably be in great demand when the construction industry picks up again, and the product can readily deliver the airtightness and thermal performance requirements set out in forthcoming changes to building regulations in England and Wales and to building standards in Scotland. Add to this the compatibility of its manufacturing process with building information modelling (BIM), the serious amounts of atmospheric carbon dioxide locked up in its solid, two-way spanning plate form, the ease and speed of construction and the minimum amounts of on-site waste generated and you begin to see why it is fast becoming the building material of choice amongst architects, engineers and contractors.

DECKING: A BUILDER’S GUIDE It is the property owner’s responsibility to check whether planning or building consent is required before work starts. It is advisable to contact the local Planning Department if: • the deck platform is more than 300mm from the ground • the deck is visible within 20 metres of a highway • the deck is likely to exceed more than 50% of the property’s garden • the deck is in a conservation area, national park or attached to a listed building.

Timber Only use timber capable of giving a service life of at least 15 years. This means using wood that is naturally durable, like some hardwoods, or a softwood that has been treated to the right level for the job. Check the table to make sure the treated timber you are buying really is fit for the purpose. There are four different construction ‘Use Classes’, and if you get the wrong one you could be putting your reputation at risk. Boards will be available plain, or ribbed/grooved for better slip resistance in the wet.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Only wood treated to Use Class 4 levels of preservative protection should be used for posts embedded in the ground or concrete

Timber stren gth cl ass All decks should be built with strength-graded timber. Strength class C16 is considered the minimum standard, with C24 recommended for heavy domestic or commercial structures. For hardwoods, D30 is the minimum strength class.

It is becoming increasingly popular for people to extend their living areas outdoors, into the garden. The commercial use of decking and walkways is also growing, with restaurants extending their dining areas and pubs providing smoking areas etc. One of the best ways to create ‘a room in the garden’ is by building a timber deck. Simple and quick to build, it requires less groundwork than masonry construction, particularly on sloping or rough sites, and can blend in well with existing landscape features. It is also relatively easy to provide for simple changes of level with ramps or steps, and to allow for future extensions. Timber decks can be attached to a property or freestanding. The complexity of build depends on the site and height from the ground. There are four basic decks: • ground level – built directly onto the ground • floating – raised less than 60cms • high level – raised more than 60cms • roof top – an area on an existing flat roof. For new properties, the National House-Building Council (NHBC) requires all decks to conform to Timber Decking Association (TDA) guidelines. The information given here is based on those guidelines.

Corrosion is the biggest threat to fixings used out of doors. Stainless steel, hot dipped galvanised, or high quality coated carbon steel fixings are best. Electroplated, brass, or uncoated steel fixings should not be used. Do not use aluminium either. Always use the same type of metal for fixings and connectors. Treated wood - fitness for purpose Based on BS EN 335:1 which defines the treatment ‘Use Class’ for different applications Treatment level Construction application Risk of failure Component examples Use Class 1 Internal Low First floor joists, rafters Use Class 2 Internal Low / Medium All roofing timbers, rafters and ground floor joists Use Class 3 External: out of ground Medium / High Cladding, fence rails, deck beams, joists and deck boards Use Class 4

Constru c tion prin c ip les The diagram below shows the basic principles of deck construction.

Always fix grooved boards at the bottom of a groove, ensuring all fixings are flush with the surface, not depressed below it, to avoid water retention.

Deck boards are fixed to joists which are supported by beams attached to posts to create a raised deck. Wall plates (sometimes called ledger boards) are used to attach decks to a property, leaving a gap of at least 10mm to allow rainwater to drain away freely. Take care not to damage the property’s dpc. Post, beam and joist spacing varies depending on a number of factors. These include the size of the deck board being used, and the size and strength class of the framing materials. Some typical joist centres and spans are shown in the table below for softwood strength class C16.

I M PO RTA N T N OTE: Important note: When cross cutting or notching treated wood on site always brush the cut ends with an end grain preserver available from your timber supplier. This will ensure the wood continues to be fit for purpose and avoids invalidating the manufacturer’s guarantee.

Laying dec k boards Always build a slight fall into a decked surface. Lay grooved boards in the direction of fall. Plain deck boards may be laid in any direction. The space between boards should ideally be between 6mm and 8mm wide to allow the water to drain away quickly and stop dirt accumulating. If the boards are installed at a moisture content higher than they are likely to reach in use, the gap can be 5mm on the assumption that it will increase as the wood dries. Always locate abutting boards over a joist to which a 47mm batten has been attached for support. Fixing points need to be no closer than 15mm from board ends. Pre-drill fixing points to prevent splitting. Every time the board crosses a joist it should be attached with two fixing points positioned at the quarter points of the board.

When installing hardwood boards always use screws, and pre-drill every fixing point 2mm oversize. This allows for any seasonal movement in the wood that could cause screws to break under the tension. To improve grip, align boards, whether plain or grooved, at a right angle to the primary direction of travel. Consider using deck boards with enhanced grip strips for stairs, ramps and commercial decks. Occasional stiff brushing should be recommended to the client to reduce slipperiness.

D eck parapets or bal ustrades For decks raised less than 600mm from the ground, Building Regulations require parapets or balustrades to be at least 900mm high. For decks raised more than 600mm, balustrades must be 1100mm high. Spaces between individual components, like a baluster or rail, should never exceed 100mm wide. All newel posts should be capped to avoid water being absorbed into the grain.

Be sure t he wood is fit for purpose Peter Kaczmar recognises the benefits of modified woods but reminds specifiers to insist on testing that is relevant to the application I have, on a number of previous occasions, written about the unfettered introduction of new developments into the timber sector and the apparent eagerness of the product manufacturer and consumer to develop and experiment with new products which arise. As a timber technologist I like to think I am receptive to innovation. Indeed, I am frequently impressed at the ingenuity of ideas that have transformed the timber industry from one of a traditionalist, antiquated character into one which can hold its own as an equal among other market sectors in a dynamic market. New ideas are vital for the survival of commercial concerns since they enable industry to change with changing times. However, there is an argument which flies in the face of this principle and one which adopts the view that too rapid a pace of change is as bad for industry as no change at all. I have found evidence in my role as a wood flooring consultant that has led me to agree with this latter view. Visits to a number of sites where thermally modified wood has been used as the floor covering have revealed some, shall we say, ‘unpredictable’ consequences. In two cases solid wood strip flooring Heat-treated ash floor in a retail environment showing fibre loss from earlywood tissue

Floorin g


made from thermally modified ash and oak was used in public places subjected to high footfall. A third case had a multi-layered floor construction with a 4mm thermally treated oak wear layer, used in a domestic environment with low levels of footfall. In the highly trafficked cases the floor suffered from abnormal levels of fibre loss from the surface sometimes referred to as ‘fibre-chalking’ to the extent that the floor became heavily pitted after only a few months of service. In the case of the domestic environment fibre loss resulted in upstanding splinters at the surface which consequently became a hazard to anyone walking over the floor in bare feet. On the face of it the three locations had not much in common. But more detailed microscopic examination revealed that fibre loss occurred wherever the growth rings in the wood were disposed to the surface at a relatively shallow angle. In all three cases the anatomical structure of the species was ‘ring-porous’ which is to say that the individual growth rings were demarcated by a discrete zone of much larger diameter vessels or pores. The consequence of this arrangement was that, where the rings broke the surface of the boards, lines of weakness were created along the line of the pores resulting in the fracture and subsequent loss of tapered fragments of wood from the surface, after being subjected to repeated footfall. The significance of these case studies is that in circumstances where the same species are used as flooring but without thermal modification, this type of fibre loss is seldom, if ever, encountered. Thermally modified woods are usually produced by heating the wood to temperatures of 160oC–230oC for several hours to several days. Heating wood to these temperatures, and holding this temperature for these periods, alters the chemistry of a number of structural and non-structural polymers that make up the wood, which changes its properties. This can result in beneficial consequences such as improved dimensional stability, although in many thermal modification processes there is an overall reduction in density and strength. It is this reduction in strength that, on a microscopic level, can lead to the observed type of surface erosion. It would be short-sighted in the extreme to criticise the use of thermally modified woods given their beneficial characteristics of improved durability and stability in other applications. However, one must be mindful of the fact that not all innovations are necessarily suited to all types of end-uses and that sometimes over-zealous or aggressive promotion of proven technological innovations, without adequate research-based knowledge in a particular sector, may damage consumer confidence. An area of burgeoning growth in the sector is bamboo flooring. As a floor covering, bamboo has achieved great popularity on the back of its rapid growth and regeneration involving the rapid recovery of harvested plantations and the fact that it is a high-strength product with good stability in humid conditions. Together, these attributes appear to make it a good sustainable alternative to hardwood flooring.

This is not to cast doubt on the adequacy of performance of new flooring products but merely to ask whether their introduction has been founded on the back of adequate empirical research and that testing is relevant to the product in question.

Heat-treated oak wear layer showing breakage and detachment of surface fragments where annular rings intersect the surface.

The popularity of bamboo to the consumer is driven by factors of aesthetics and cost more than by its physical characteristics. However, this has not prevented manufacturers of bamboo flooring from exercising their imagination in developing new variants of their product in order to fill specialist and niche markets. Variants, such as strand-woven flooring consisting of reconstituted bamboo strands bonded together with a specially formulated adhesive or carbonised bamboo, have been developed and sold as some of the hardest and most resilient forms of flooring known. These products were not specifically developed for their hardness but came about in order to utilise more effectively an existing resource which would otherwise have gone to waste. But for a material used as a floor covering, how desirable a characteristic is hardness? Manufacturers rely on consumer perception that ‘hardness’ equates to ‘hard-wearing’ although this is not always the case. Often harder materials are more prone to wear on account of not being able to absorb certain types of hard body impact as well as softer ones which leads to the surface being damaged or scuffed more easily. Such developments can be driven by commercial considerations with perhaps not enough thought being given to their practical consequences. It often seems that manufacturers may be guilty of taking a leap into the dark when promoting innovations without the benefit of empirical research as a basis for their commercial claims. At TRADA Technology we are often approached by distributors to carry out studies of products which have already been released into the marketplace in order to help them make a stronger commercial case.

It should also be noted that it is important to test material that will actually be used for the manufacture of the product in question. There are a wide range of thermal modification processes and each will have a different impact on wood properties. In addition, the wood species, and the way in which it has been cut, may also have an important influence on the properties of the floor surface. It is only natural to want to exploit new developments to their maximum potential and there is nothing wrong in doing so. In most cases innovations are well researched to ensure that they fill a particular practical need. Some wood modification techniques have been shown to provide significant improvements to wood flooring and there is no reason that some thermal modification techniques cannot also provide similar improvements provided they are used with appropriate species. However, there are times when, having made it onto the commercial scene and having proven themselves in service, product innovations are then pushed into areas to which they are perhaps not as well suited, using their otherwise successful track record as a springboard. Manufacturers should be mindful that it is not always possible to ‘secondguess’ how a product will behave and respond to a given environment, even if it has been used successfully elsewhere. Any change in commercial direction must be backed by a programme of appropriate testing even though a product may already have a proven pedigree of use in an existing application.

As thermal performance requirements have become harder and more expensive to achieve, all sectors of the construction industry need to consider building a thicker external envelope to provide space for insulation. This need is only going to increase as the industry moves towards the ‘zero carbon’ target in 2016. This book has been written to expand on information provided on some alternative forms of timber construction mentioned in Timber frame construction 5th edition. Four of the most common types of alternative timber walls and roofs are explored here, with over 30 drawings. These are structural insulated panels (SIPs), cross laminated timber, engineered stud and twin stud.

Wood has been traditionally used for many forms of solar shading in the past, and because of its versality, ease of working, and easy maintenance, has an important role in the design of modern shading devices. One reason for using wood for screening is its attractive appearance, whether left to bleach naturally, or finished in any colour. Many forms of sun screening are now becoming an accepted feature in the visual appearance of many buildings, but their primary role will always be to moderate the effect of the sun’s rays on the internal environment of the building. ‘’TRADA Technology’s External solar shading with wood – a design guide for architects is a comprehensive and good looking guide with every clear drawings. I am sure it will help many architects to tackle the relevant issues for years to come’’ – Paul Kalkhoven, Senior Partner at Foster +Partners

Ever since man first created dwellings from tree trunks, the greatest challenge he faced was to devise a form of connection between the individual components which would result in a safe and stable structure. Even today, the connections remain the most critical aspect of timber design, and many contemporary structures exploit the connections for their role in the articulation of the assembly as well as their visual interest. This book illustrates: • the main structural forms for which timber is suitable • a range of the common connections used to assemble these forms • what these connections might look like • the structural design constraints that affect configuration and appearance • good detailing practice.

Timber in contemporary archite cture: a des igner’s gu ide

Geoffrey C Pitts with Robin Lancashire

Peter Ross, Giles Downes & Andrew Lawrence

The energy consumption associated with buildings has consistently been estimated to be up to 50% of the total national consumption in industrialised countries and, of this proportion, residential buildings account for more than half. Low energy timber frame buildings covers the whole design process from site conditions and planning for better thermal performance to provision for alternative energy sources. It describes how to optimise the layout to achieve ‘low energy’ designs, together with guidance on envelope performance and details for ventilation, airsealing and insulation. This illustrated guide demonstrates how timber frame buildings can be designed and constructed cost effectively to be energy efficient. It shows how designers can also play a role in building use, providing end-users with a comprehensive operation manual. The design principles and construction details described apply to most mainstream building types up to seven storeys high.

T imber brid ges Christopher Mettem Bridges built in timber are enjoying a significant revival, both for pedestrian and light traffic and increasingly for heavier loadings and longer spans. Timber’s high strength-to-weight ratio, combined with the ease and speed of construction inherent in the offsite prefabrication methods used, make a timber bridge a suitable option in many different scenarios. This handbook gives technical guidance on forms, materials, structural design and construction techniques suitable for both small and large timber bridges. For the first time Eurocode 5 Part 2 (BS EN 1995-2) provides an international standard for the construction of timber bridges, removing a potential obstacle for engineers where timber construction for bridges has not – in recent centuries at least – been usual. Clearly illustrated throughout, this guide explains how to make use of this oldest construction material in a modern context to create sustainable, aesthetically pleasing, practical and durable bridges. Worldwide examples include Tourand Creek Bridge, Canada; Toijala, Finland; Punt la Resgia, Switzerland; Pont de Crest, France; Almorere Pylon Bridge, the Netherlands.

Written by leading experts in timber architecture and engineering, Timber in contemporary architecture investigates materials, connections, applications, and celebrates innovation. The 18 inspirational case studies include: Visitor Centres at Savill Garden and Alnwick; Weald and Downland Museum; David Douglas Pavilion; Mossbourne Academy; Formby Pool; Kingsdale School; Haberdashers Hall; Ealing Bridge; The Globe Theatre; Carlisle Lane apartments; Sage concert hall.

Span tab les pack: E uro c ode 5 & BS 5268 calc u lations Also available separately, both editions of Span tables contain section sizes and spans for solid timber members in floors, ceilings and roofs (excluding trussed rafter roofs) for dwellings. The calculations apply to buildings up to three storeys in height above ground level. Span tables were originally included in the England and Wales Building Regulations, Approved Document A: Structure and subsequently revised by TRADA. Tables are included for domestic floor joists, ceiling joists and binders, and rafters and purlins supporting rafters for traditional pitched roofs. Calculations are also given for “canted” purlins supporting roof sheeting or cladding, and for flat roof joists. The tables cover softwood species and grade combinations which satisfy strength classes C16 and C24. This pack includes the 2nd edition with calculations to BS 5268 plus the new 3rd edition which conforms to the current British Standard supported by the British Standards Institution, BS EN 1995: Eurocode 5, which came into effect in April 2010.

timbersizer Pro EC5 & timber conne c tions Pro EC5 timberconnectionsPro EC5 is a design tool which calculates the resistance to lateral and axial loads of timber-to-timber and steel-to-timber connections made with nails, wood screws, bolts or dowels inserted at right-angles to the grain. Design loads are calculated to Eurocode 5. Coach screw connections for two-member joints are also included. Eurocode 5 timberconnectionsPro is available on a subscription basis only, with a reduction for both modules together. timbersizerPro EC5 is a time saving online tool for architects, builders, engineers and other construction professionals. It will help ensure their designs meet the requirements of Eurocode 5 (EC5), which replaced British Standard 5268 in April 2010.

Euro c ode 5 desig n so ftware The new online edition of timbersizer EC5 is a time-saving design tool for engineers, architects, builders and other construction professionals. It will help to ensure designs meet the requirements of Eurocode 5 (EC5), which replaced British Standard 5268, the code for timber structures, in 2010.

Construction brie fin g sheets

Based on TRADA calculations, timbersizer EC5 covers all domestic structural timber members: • Joists for domestic floors, ceilings or flat roofs • Binders supporting ceiling joists • Rafters • Purlins supporting rafters, sheeting or decking.

These briefing sheets summarise the requirements of the main codes and regulations impacting construction. The briefings are regularly updated, with subjects including building regulations (England & Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland), as well as the main codes such as the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH), Eurocode 5 and Construction (Design & Management) (CDM) regulations.

timberconnections EC5 calculates the load capacity of individual fasteners based on timber strength classes C16 or C24. You can calculate connection capacities with nails, screws, bolts, dowels and coach screws in two and three member combinations of timber and steel.

HOW DO I USE THIS BENEFIT? Each sheet can be downloaded in a PDF format by visiting the ‘Regulations & Codes’ area of the website and following the links.

timbersizer and timberconnections are free to all TRADA members.

timbersizerP ro and timber connec tionsPro This software is available on a subscription basis to members at a discounted rate. Subscribers can customise and tweak all design parameters with advanced controls to define specific timber sizes and unload values for strength classes in the range C14-D70. Both products generate custom reports in PDF format for records and Building Control purposes. These reports demonstrate where the design meets or fails to meet the requirements of Eurocode 5, and provide more detailed feedback for the user, including numerical strength stress comparisons of timber performance. HOW DO I USE THIS BENEFIT? Visit the ‘Technical information’ area of the website and select the ‘Design tools’ link. Each program can be accessed from this page.
