Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook


Stand out from the crowd In today’s multi-platform, increasingly sophisticated business market place, making yourself heard above the noise of the competition is getting harder. Creating – and maintaining – a unique selling point, something that makes you stand out from the crowd, is key to getting that voice heard.


n 2015, not only has TRADA listened to its members but it’s made its voice really heard with the publishing of the National Structural Timber Specification (NSTS), a milestone for the timber industry that makes it easier for wood to be used under National Building Regulations – and levels the playing field with timber’s competitive materials set. The brainchild of TRADA, the NSTS gives the construction industry a set of best practice guidelines against which timber buildings can be erected and has been developed in line with increased demand for the use of engineered wood across the residential and education market sectors. We believe it will provide confidence to specifiers, developers, architects and structural engineers when specifying wood. In the UK, timber still has a long way to go when competing with traditional materials in the construction sector and the general perception in its use. However, with increasing demand brings resultant constraints on supply and skills capability, and hence the prefabrication of timber components will be viewed more favourably. Timber has many advantages. It is the only material that can be grown for construction use, it’s versatile enough to adapt to all forms of construction needs and durable enough to stand the test of time. However, it has suffered in the past from negative public perception, particularly with media coverage around fire performance. Again, TRADA has reacted in supplementing the NSTS with a project specification to assist in the design guidance toward the issues of fire, acoustics, thermal and vibration.

How is TRADA helping improve on this? We are educating our architects and engineers in both the industry and in our universities to better understand the use of timber in construction, though our University Engagement Programme. Again the NSTS has helped platform TRADA’s status in the UK as the leading voice when specifying wood. It’s now time to make that voice heard even more. There’s no doubt that the next 12 months will be challenging for the construction industry, but timber has never had a stronger platform on which to build. There will continue to be increased demands on our supply chain as we react to the continued growth in the UK construction market, in particular the housing and education sectors. With TRADA at the heart of the debate, the timber industry is perfectly placed to win hearts - and voices. n

Nick Milestone Chairman TRADA

One of the key talking points – and opportunities for the timber industry – is the growth in the UK housing and residential market and how prefabricated and pre-engineered wood systems can build from small family homes to the mid-high rise market. This is both a challenge and an opportunity for timber. In addition, when used with other materials of steel and concrete in composite construction, timber can achieve the many boundaries of the skills gap and supply and demand of traditional materials in the UK. www.trada.co.uk

TRADA Review of the year

Pioneering change Rupert Scott looks back on an eventful 2015.


hat have the Apple iPhone, Nike AirMax and Sinclair ZX Spectrum all got in common? Give up? The answer is that they’re all game changers in their respective industries, pioneering the way in their fields for a host of rivals, often copied, rarely outshone. In September this year, TRADA published its National Structural Timber Specification (NSTS), a document we too believe will be a game changer, bringing timber very much front of mind as a construction material for the 21st century.

The NSTS matches the steel and concrete industries while for the first time giving the construction industry a set of best practice guidelines against which timber buildings can literally be erected. The NSTS was the highlight of another busy and successful year for TRADA, in which we exhibited at a number of high profile exhibitions, delivered a successful competition, produced numerous publications and supported our membership to continue to raise the profile of timber.

winning design has had its own stand, but for 2015, it took pride of place on the main TRADA stand. Alice Howland’s winning entry at Oxford Brookes architecture department comprised two intertwined curved structures to create a private space to share secrets about timber. The beautifully shaped frame was clad in a variety of timber species supplied by Timbmet, the competition sponsor. In October, the NSTS was the centre of lively debate at this year’s Timber Expo show as part of TRADA’s high profile seminar programme, prepared in partnership with the new owners, Media 10. It was one of the highlights from the ‘Specifying timber made easier’ session with Nick Milestone, Managing Director, B&K Structures – and TRADA chairman talking about the free-to-download specification documents. Meanwhile Andrew Lawrence, Associate Director, Arup, provided his top tips for specifying a great timber building. In addition, visitors to the show were able to see the fruits of TRADA’s collaboration with the Emergent Technologies and Design (EmTech) Graduate Programme at the Architectural Association (AA) School of Architecture to create a wooden pavilion that explores the bending and twisting capacity of timber. >>

Exhibitions TRADA enjoyed its busiest Ecobuild yet as the world’s largest event for sustainable design in the built environment returned to London’s ExCeL for 2015. It certainly was a busy show for the TRADA team whose experts delivered a series of interactive sessions on the stand. With a multitude of connection types available, visitors found out which is best for any given situation; they also learnt how to identify timber species under a microscope; as well as discussing how to best deal with the root cause of overheating – stopping the sun coming in – using solar shading. Another focal point for TRADA’s stand this year was the Timbmet Dan Kemp Memorial Pavilion. In previous years, the www.trada.co.uk

TRADA Review of the year

Meanwhile, an innovative machine that incises round timber and coating application technology that helps protect timber were the deserved winners of this year’s TTJ Timber Innovations Award, jointly sponsored by TRADA and Timber Expo. Competition in the awards for 2015 was fierce and the judges were impressed with the high standard of entries, making the achievements of Tweddle Engineering with its Excalibur R incising technology, and Arch Timber Protection for its BARamine application technologies, even more commendable. In addition to the two category winners, Danzer UK was highly commended for its 3D Veneer product which allows moulding manufacturers to create a 3D veneer using their existing machines.

Competitions Twenty outstanding British buildings and some of the UK’s best new furniture and product designs were nominated for The Wood Awards 2015 shortlist. Co-sponsored by TRADA, The Wood Awards are the UK’s premier competition for excellence in architecture and product design in the world’s only naturally sustainable material.

And, last but no means least, students from the University of Nottingham and London South Bank University shared the victor’s spoils in this year’s TRADA National Student Design Competition, which challenged them to develop a wide span structure for displaying aircraft at the Yorkshire Air Museum based just outside Elvington. After two successful years, the TRADA National Student Design Competition continues for 2016 with Arboreal, which features a brief based at the Sylva Foundation’s Wood Centre development and is another project that may be built. Further information is available on the TRADA website and we look forward to a further round of inspiring entries. n

TRADA Timber Expo 2015

TRADA takes centre stage at Timber Expo With its high profile seminar programme and the launch of its National Structural Timber Specification, TRADA was expecting a busy show at this year’s Timber Expo – and it didn’t disappoint.


or 2015, Timber Expo was part of an exciting new collection of shows for the built environment under the UK Construction Week banner – all of which took place at the same time and in adjacent halls at the NEC Birmingham.

And having attracted some of the industry’s biggest names and exposure from projects like The Twist, a collaboration with the Architectural Association, TRADA certainly had a busy three days, with healthy levels of footfall to its stand and good interaction throughout the seminars. Working with Timber Expo’s new owners Media 10, TRADA pulled together high profile hosts, speakers and panellists covering the biggest and hottest issues in timber – all under one roof.

New opportunities for timber In 2015, the format for the seminar programme included a greater degree of audience participation with more discussions, panellists and Q&A time. Some of the big hitting topics included: pushing the boundaries of what is possible with wood; making it easier to specify timber; and custom build – a fantastic opportunity for timber. Highlights from the ‘Specifying timber made easier’ session included Andrew Lawrence, Associate Director, Arup, providing his top tips for specifying a great timber building; while Nick Milestone, Managing Director, B&K Structures was given the job of talking about TRADA’s much-awaited >>

new free-to-download National Structural Timber Specification, which is set to make specifying timber considerably easier. In the ‘Custom build’ session, Paul Maddock, Senior Associate, HTA LLP, and Helen Town, Regeneration and Housing Development Manager at Cherwell District Council, explained the government drivers that encouraged the developments that they had worked on. Meanwhile a panel including Craig White, partner at White Design, Jon Sawyer, Head of Custom Build Housing at Igloo Regeneration, along with presenters Paul Maddock and Helen Town, debated what needs to change for timber to realise the full potential of custom build. Another session entitled ‘Wooden cities’ featured a number of Scandianvian case studies looking at how town planning was achieved, why wood was chosen, the benefits of a coordinated plan (eg district heating), the response of residents and general methods of construction. This was followed by a panel discussion considering the effect that regulations, planning and custom and practice have had on plans to grow the use of wood – and whether the UK can match the aspirations of Scandinavia in the future.

Award winners Two sessions focused on 2015 awards: The UK Wood Awards and the global on-line WAN Wood In Architecture 2015 Award. Both provided case studies from last year’s winners, a roundup of this year’s shortlist and a panel discussion with judges on what makes a winner. The winner of the Wood In Architecture Awards 2015, Hacine Chérifi Gymnasium was announced straight after the session.

Experimenting with wood and space Meanwhile, visitors to the show were able to see the fruits of TRADA’s collaboration with the Emergent Technologies and Design (EmTech) Graduate Programme at the Architectural Association (AA) School of Architecture to create a wooden pavilion. Built from 6mm and 4mm birch plywood– supplied by TRADA member Hanson Plywood – the pavilion, named The Twist, explores experimentation into twisting and bending timber to create a doubly-curved surface that provides interesting spatial experiences.

Student projects on display In addition, visitors to the TRADA stand were able to see first-hand the fruits of this year’s National Student Design Competition. Dubbed Airspeed, students had to design an air hangar from timber; their intricate models were on display at Timber Expo, drawing positive comments from many of the visitors to the stand. n

TRADA Education

TRADA’s University Engagement Programme - the next chapter… Elizabeth Turner, TRADA’s Universities Engagement Manager, has now moved on to new adventures but left us with some final thoughts...


ver the past five years TRADA’s University Engagement Programme has connected with thousands of students in a variety of ways. Providing guest lectures at universities are a good face-to-face way of connecting and we estimate that in the 71 lectures delivered we’ve reached around 2000 students or more – with not all of them sleeping through it! Sometimes it is the lone timber lecture included as part of the course and it’s true that we are still seeing concrete and steel at the forefront of materials teaching. However, the tide is changing in timber’s favour and universities such as Imperial College London, University of Cambridge and Arts University Bournemouth as well as others are focusing on timber teaching – emulating the work already being done at University of Bath and Edinburgh Napier. Students enjoy the lectures and always ask searching questions – about fire, local sourcing and sustainability to name a few.

Academic resources for students and lecturers The lectures are supported by our online Academic Resources which have seen a big uptake in use over the past two years and there were over 23,000 views of the resource landing page last year. We are sure that a good proportion of these visitors went on to look at more and the top five units viewed (and hopefully used) in both the 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 academic years were: Introduction to timber construction total of 1314 views over both years Introduction - why choose timber total of 1238 views over both years Introduction to connections total of 955 views over both years Glue laminated timber total of 683 views over both years The tree total of 492 views over both years

Questions students ask Students also ask queries of us via the dedicated email link in the Academic Resources area on the website. Some of them are inevitably about access and the TRADA case studies that, pleasingly, students use a use a good deal as precedents for timber construction. www.trada.co.uk

Many students ask us to complete surveys devised as part of a final year dissertation. These are often quite sophisticated and it is always gratifying that students are working away looking into aspects of timber frame construction and off site manufacturing. As you might expect, we get queries about glulam and cross laminated timber on a regular basis but also wider topics too. Students have worked on projects as diverse as: disabled access to historic buildings, strength testing of timber, glued-in rods, mortise and tenon joints and - more unusually - house long horn beetles, with one marine archaeologist asking us about marine borers! Many of the requests we receive relate to undergraduate projects but postgraduate students across the UK are working on a range of timber related PhD research projects (both structural and non-structural) that are extending the boundaries of our understanding as demonstrated in TRADA’s Research Summary series.

Competitions as learning opportunities Competitions also offer a great opportunity for students to learn about timber. We have worked with Coventry University on an Engineering Prize to “Design, Build and Test a Glulam Beam”. Like many of our student competitions this one is undertaken as part of the teaching programme, in this case a module on timber and masonry structures. David Trujillo, the Senior Lecturer who runs the module, tasks groups of students with investigating the timber and glulam design codes and using a defined set of materials – 2m long graded timber planks (ripped in half) and PVA adhesive – they build a glulam beam. That beam is broken and the strength and stiffness recorded. Students are asked to provide drawings, calculations and written work on the design codes and their predictions. The competition element comes from the accuracy of the predicted strength and stiffness values based on their design and also the quality of the build judged by Liz Turner on the day the beams are broken. >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

TRADA Education

The build quality is variable with some students clearly aware of the importance of sound glue lines and clamping the laminates together to create a good product, and also the position of knots which indicates they have understood about timber grading. The laboratory session, when the beams are broken, serves as a great opportunity to talk to the students about failure modes – about fracture and shear and the importance of knots in timber failure. Both David and Liz believe the project really gives the students a sound learning opportunity into the design codes and the safety factors built into these codes, and also into product manufacturing and failure modes of composite beams. There are a number of competitions focusing on timber design: with Western Timber Association for architects at University of West of England, and engineers at University of Bristol, then there is the long-running North East Timber Trade Association timber award at Northumbria University, and the Temporary Gallery project at Sheffield Hallam for architectural technologists. These competitions featuring timber as the main structural material naturally require the students to learn about wide aspects of timber design - with the added motivation of a potential prize at the end.

Learning about timber’s potential What students get out of these competitions is best demonstrated by the comments of those who have been successful in the TRADA National Student Design competitions: Velocity in British Timber and Airspeed. Both of these have been taken up by lecturers in both engineering and architecture from across the UK. Velocity tasked students with creating a cycling super hub in Sheffield and Airspeed a brand new aircraft hangar at the Yorkshire Air Museum. Both were large structures with various challenges. What we found was that students had not previously learned that much about timber but were aware of its potential. When asked “How much did you know about timber before you entered the competition?” - the comments from engineering students Juliet Kernohan of Imperial College and Nicola Wilson of University of Edinburgh were typical: “As engineers at Imperial, we’ve been exposed to a number of companies that are championing innovations in timber so we knew it had great potential. That is what initially attracted us to the Velocity project! However, in terms of designing with timber, we knew very little. In our first year, we’d touched on timber >>

in our materials module, but only for a couple of lectures. It was a pretty steep learning curve when we got stuck into the project because it’s so far from the materials we’re used to designing with, like concrete or steel” commented Juliet. And Nicola said “We didn’t know much about timber before the competition, we knew it was good for building timber frames for houses and how it reacted when exposed to fire but not much else. We had never used it as a material in design before and had yet to learn much about it at university, so far our studies have been based very much on steel and concrete.” But had the competition changed their ideas about timber as a construction material? Yes it certainly had - Matt Waugh of Arts University Bournemouth said “it enhanced my appreciation of timber within building applications. While I was aware of traditional timber framing, shingle roofing and exterior cladding, I had not before thought to combine material properties, versatility, aesthetics and strengths.” Jess Barton of Newcastle University felt that “we definitely underestimated the diversity of timber and the variety of uses it could be applied to. Our research into cross-laminated timber was interesting as we realised that timber, when fabricated properly can withhold the same load as masonry construction. We were also interested by the alternative aesthetic of timber and how it can be treated to act as both construction material and cladding. For example, we decided to char the cross-laminated timber blocks that made up our core.” This year’s shortlisted students in the Airspeed Competition had similar experiences summed up best by Chloe Detanger of Imperial College: “this definitely opened up the horizon of working with wood. I’d never really worked with wood before but having done this we are starting a wood project in Borneo.” Although the comments from these students are only a snap-shot of how students benefit from the TRADA University www.trada.co.uk

Engagement Programme, we think they give a good feel for how important the programme is to the designers of the future. With the increasing interest from universities, evidenced by more guest lectures requested year-on-year and growing usage of the online Academic Resources, the future of the use of timber as a construction material seems guaranteed.

What’s new in 2016? Following Liz Turner’s departure in Autumn 2015, the programme continues to gather momentum, with recently-appointed University Engagement Manager Tim Belden now expanding on her work. He is keen to continue the links and lectures with students and lecturers, as well as strengthening the links with industry. With a background firmly in engineering and heritage work in timber, having worked on Grade I,II* and II listed buildings and at royal historic sites, he is looking to also demystify the students understanding of that sector as a potential additional avenue for future employment. There are plenty of opportunities related to timber in both heritage and new build for architects and engineers and all allied wood trades. Tim’s belief is that - although timber was the mainstream component of buildings in the past - its time has come again and it is swiftly becoming a serious choice in the buildings that are being constructed today. Certainly it is a persuasive choice when considering its sustainability credentials, but it offers so much more. Why not visit the academic area of the TRADA website to read the evidence and make your own mind up? n

Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook


Introducing the National Structural Timber Specification The National Structural Timber Specification was launched in October 2015. Adrian Young explains how it will be used in practice.


he UK government’s chief construction adviser, Peter Hansford, called it a ‘milestone’, but what exactly does the new National Structural Timber Specification (NSTS)1 mean for those at the coalface, the engineers tasked with using it?

Arup’s Andrew Lawrence said: ‘Clients are realising that to get high-quality fast construction, timber is the ideal choice. We need to make timber easier for people to use; having a standard specification is part of that. We wanted something that was suitable for all types of timber structure.

Both the steel and the concrete industries have had a specification document for some time; timber had lagged considerably behind in this area, with many engineers cobbling together specification documents literally on the job and tweaking them from project to project. Not anymore. By providing a framework and information on minimum standards, the NSTS simply makes it easier for engineers to specify timber.

‘We wanted to guide people through the construction process using wood, to help them avoid the pitfalls.’

Industry steered Essentially, the NSTS gives the construction industry a set of best practice guidelines against which timber buildings can be erected. Some of the timber industry’s leading lights have been instrumental in helping TRADA put together the NSTS, which is available to download free to those who register: www.trada.co.uk/nsts. The NSTS project was driven by a group of TRADA members who have taken the lead in specifying timber. Most have their own bespoke specifications that they have shared with BM TRADA to enable this new specification to evolve. Nick Milestone of Bowmer and Kirkland chaired the steering group, which included representatives from Kingspan, Arup and BM TRADA. Peer reviewing was provided by representatives from Smith and Wallwork, BAM Construct UK, Ramboll, Waugh Thistleton, KLH, Cullinan Studio and the NHBC, followed by a wider consultation among TRADA members. Working with this group, TRADA has developed a comprehensive specification that covers information exchange, materials, fabrication, erection, protection and quality assurance. It is a real game-changer for an industry that has – to this point – relied on using documentation from previous projects to fit the latest one. www.trada.co.uk

Softwood structures The NSTS focuses on structural uses of kiln-dried softwoods for use in three main areas. The first is light-frame construction – usually known as ‘timber frame’ – the main application for this being housing. These can be ‘open panel’ and ‘closed panel’ as well as floor cassettes. It also includes heavy-frame construction – typically glulam and other engineered timber post-and-beam structures – as well as panel construction (typically cross-laminated timber and structural insulated panels). These systems establish methods of erection and tolerances. It is conceivable that the specifier might choose to adopt a ‘different’ system from that normally expected. For example, a closedpanel timber frame could be installed to ‘panel’ standard. Hybrid construction (where timber is combined structurally with other materials) and hardwood structures are under consideration for future development. Future editions may also create further modules to cover non-structural uses of timber such as cladding.

Roles under the NSTS The specification defines three important roles: • the Employer (usually the main contractor and not to be confused with the ‘employer’ under a JCT contract) • the Timber Contractor • the Project Engineer. Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook


The Contract lists individuals and companies with roles mentioned in the NSTS.

specifiers who are ‘logged in’ as TRADA members will enjoy seamless links to essential best practice guidance from TRADA.

The Project Engineer (usually nominated by the Employer) is not a party to the Contract but would review structural information supplied by the Timber Contractor. The NSTS defines the role of the Project Engineer as the ‘building designer’,2 with the following responsibilities:

So how does it work? The NSTS is designed to be read in conjunction with the Project Specification. Although this could be written from scratch, TRADA members can access a Microsoft Word template that includes:

• ensuring the integration of the design of the various building components including the detailing of suitable connections between the building components and their support structure

• prompts and defaults for project-specific data • additions to the NSTS • deletions from the NSTS • amendments to the NSTS.

• ensuring adequate provision is made for the stability of the building as a whole, as distinct from, and in addition to, the stability of individual components, including the detailing of all elements of bracing required in the building

The template includes a handy table that enables the specifier to summarise the changes to the NSTS. From then on, the template leads the specifier through a logical sequence of responses to prompts in the NSTS.

• ensuring that necessary information is provided to all parties involved in the design of the building.

The specification is written as a set of instructions to the Timber Contractor using imperative verbs, such as ‘design’ and ‘install’, which mean actions the Timber Contractor is required to perform.

It is intended that the Timber Contractor provides sufficient information about the delegated design to enable the Project Engineer to be satisfied about the adequacy of the entire design. To ensure clarity of responsibility, the NSTS does not define two secondary roles: the ‘architect’ (because there is not usually an architect nominated under contracts for structural timber) and the ‘timber engineer’ (a timber design specialist employed by the timber contractor) who undertakes design to the extent nominated in the Project Specification. Structural engineers are likely to be either the Project Engineer or timber engineer. The Project Engineer would usually be the author of the Project Specification for Structural Timber, so they have an important role in steering the adoption of the NSTS. Timber engineers will also have a role in specifying structural timber, depending on the extent of design responsibility delegated to the timber contractor. When the Timber Contractor submits information to the Employer, the review would normally be delegated to the Project Engineer. The employer would also liaise with the architect to ensure compliance with architectural requirements.

Specification and guidance TRADA wants to make it easier to specify timber and so the NSTS is presented in a convenient, two-column, A4 format with the specification and guidance side by side. Much of the guidance is contained in TRADA publications, in particular some 70 Wood Information Sheets. When using the online version of the NSTS, www.trada.co.uk

Structural engineers who are familiar with design of steel and concrete structures using the Eurocodes will welcome the ease of designing and now specifying timber structures. The NSTS deliberately follows Eurocode 5.3 There has been no provision for BS 5268 because it has been withdrawn.

Contents Recognising that timber and steel structures follow similar processes for fabrication and erection, the NSTS follows a sequence that will appeal to the many structural engineers already familiar with specifying steel structures in the UK. Chapter 1 outlines the scope of the specification and Chapter 2 lists various definitions. Chapters 3 and 4 deal with information exchange. In Chapter 3 the specifier defines the extent of the Timber Contractor’s responsibility for design as well as the essential loading data. Chapter 4 summarises the information required from the Timber Contractor. In Chapter 5, the NSTS also helps engineers choose the right materials for the job. One of timber’s appeals is the wide variety of timber products available to the specifier. But this can be a barrier for engineers hitherto used to the few materials specified in a steel or concrete structure. Fortunately, the adoption of European product standards and CE marking eases the way to specifying timber. The NSTS does this by listing the relevant product standard (or alternative in the few cases that CE >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

Workmanship is specified in two distinct phases – fabrication and erection – in Chapters 6, 7 and 8. Structural engineers will welcome the diagrams and erection tolerances for timber-frame, structural insulated panels, cross-laminated timber and heavyframe structures. Chapter 9 deals with preservation, flame retardants and finishes, while Chapter 10 rounds off the specification with quality assurance.

Timber legality plus The EU FLEGT VPA initiative is ultimately aimed at delivering legally assured timber and wood products to the European market, but, while EU buyers wait for that, supplier countries signed up to it say it’s achieving far more besides. Mike Jeffree reports.

“EU importers see licensed timber as saving time and money on due diligence and potentially providing a sales edge with specifiers and consumers.”


he EU Forest Law Enforcement Governance and Trade Voluntary Partnership Agreement initiative has had a mixed press in the UK and wider EU timber trade. And it’s not due to its mouthful of a name, or acronym – FLEGT VPA. Nor is it down to any doubts about the desirability of the initiative’s key objective: to provide an international supply of assured legally sourced ‘licensed’ timber and wood products for the EU, notably from tropical countries perceived as having most serious issues with illegal logging and trade, and which are losing EU market share as a result. VPA signatory countries can issue FLEGT export licenses once they’ve implemented specific measures to underpin their trade’s legal operation to the satisfaction of national and EU authorities. With EU back up, these include establishing watertight timber legality assurance and chain of custody systems, monitoring and licensing mechanisms, plus a raft of other governance reforms. The licensed timber will then be exempt further due diligence illegality risk assessment under the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR). The two initiatives are, effectively, supply and demand sides of the overall FLEGT Action Plan; intended to work in tandem to block illegal timber from the EU market.

Highlighting the benefits Both suppliers and buyers say they want licensing in place to ensure timber legality per se. But both identify potential commercial benefits too. EU importers see licensed timber as saving time and money on due diligence and potentially providing a sales edge with specifiers and consumers. Big name retailers and manufacturers, including IKEA, also say they’d welcome it as added reinforcement for ‘legally sourced’ claims. Suppliers seem even more convinced it will give them a market advantage, with one Indonesian minister forecasting it would boost his country’s EU timber exports by six per cent. Others say it could facilitate access to countries beyond the EU with timber legality requirements. In fact, Australia has already >> www.trada.co.uk

One area where a number of VPA signatories have made significant progress is in establishing their required Timber Legality Assurance System (TLAS). Indonesia’s is founded on its existing SVLK system, but this has grown exponentially since it engaged with FLEGT and has now certified millions of hectares of forest and hundreds of timber businesses. The country has also developed the associated VPA-legal export licensing system, potentially a test-bed for FLEGT licensing.

A log tracking tag in Liberia

said that FLEGT licences would be viewed favourably under its Illegal Logging Prohibition Act, and some predict the licences may also be considered contributory evidence of ‘due care’ to avoid illegal timber, the key stipulation of the US Lacey Act. But the big question mark hanging over the whole project is the time it’s taking to implement. Critics point out that the wider FLEGT initiative is in its second decade, but still no FLEGTlicensed timber has been shipped. Progress has certainly been slow, as confirmed in a report from the EU Court of Auditors. Meanwhile, the EUTR, with which licensing is supposed to coordinate, came in in March 2013. The extent of concerns was highlighted in discussions earlier this year at London’s Chatham House think tank. One importer even suggested resources devoted to FLEGT might be better spent supporting legality and sustainability certification, notably under PEFC and FSC® schemes.1

Positive impact At the same time, however, the initiative has continued strong and often ardent support, in both the EU and supplier states, notably those engaged with the VPA process (and 17 of these, all tropical, are now at some stage of involvement, six at final implementing phase). They share the disappointment over FLEGT licensing and acknowledge that it is a prime VPA goal. But they also highlight the many positive impacts it has had along the way. They say that licensing is such a highly valued ultimate prize because satisfying a VPA is such a thorough, no-stone-unturned process, and that’s also one reason it’s taking the time. In fact, some maintain, it has already irrevocably changed the nature of their forestry and timber sectors, to the benefit of society, environment and the industries themselves. www.trada.co.uk

Indonesia’s V-legal licensing system is seen as a test bed for FLEGT licensing

Alongside Indonesia, Ghana is the VPA signatory expected to start licensing first and it too has put major effort into its TLAS, reported to be set for national roll-out in 2016. This also incorporates its online Wood Tracking System, which won plaudits from outside observers following successful trials around the country. Another central demand of the VPA process is that forestry and timber sectors increase stakeholder engagement and accountability and transparency to the wider community. The fact that it’s as much a bottom up as top down initiative is cited as another reason why VPAs have been such a slow burn. But Saskia Ozinga, of FERN (a non-governmental organisation, NGO, operating in the forestry sector), said FLEGT should get credit for progress already achieved here alone. ‘The level of consultation between government, civil society, NGOs and private sector never happened in these countries before,’ she said. ‘In fact, it hasn’t happened anywhere, including Europe.’ >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

This degree of stakeholder involvement should also ultimately increase the credibility of FLEGT licenses. ‘As FLEGT is a consultative process, licences are less likely to be challenged by NGOs,’ said Ms Ozinga. In Liberia, local communities engaged in VPA negotiations from the start in 2009, via umbrella groups such as the National Union of Community Forestry Development Committees (NUCFDC). ‘We saw the VPA bringing further checks and balances to forestry and timber sectors,’ said CFDC president Matthew Walley. ‘So we quickly established a stakeholder steering committee and joined talks in Brussels.’ His organisation encouraged wider engagement too, even running FLEGT jingles on local radio. The VPA, said Mr Walley, is also thought to have been behind the Liberian government’s decision to concede to stakeholder pressure to distribute US$1.4 million of outstanding logger’s land rental tax to local communities. The SVLK scheme laid stakeholder engagement foundations in Indonesia, but according to Telapak (a consortium of NGOs, business and indigenous people) the VPA has built on this and given stakeholders greater leverage. ‘Without us, the VPA won’t happen,’ said Telapak forests campaign coordinator Abu Meridian. The VPA, he added, has also empowered civil groups to monitor timber and forestry sectors, and urge a crackdown on criminal activity.

Having a say According to FLEGT facilitator Andy Roby, there’s real political desire to make the VPA process inclusive too, perhaps stemming from Indonesia’s ‘wider moves to greater democracy’. So civil society and small business also have more influence in forestry policy. ‘For example, they secured a change in SVLK legality definitions, enabling Papua province to incorporate community land rights,’ said Roby.

In Ghana, which opened FLEGT discussions in 2006, the Forest Watch Ghana NGO coalition is on the VPA steering committee and communicates concerns of community groups and ‘traditional authorities’. ‘Stakeholders are also involved in field-testing the Wood Tracking System, and consulted on reforms to combat illegality on the domestic market, another aspect of Ghana’s VPA and TLAS,’ said Chris Beeko, Ghana Forestry Commission timber validation director. Trade conjecture is now that Indonesia and Ghana could finally deliver the first FLEGT licensed timber next year, although there are still no official deadlines.

Surveying trade relations In the meantime, the EU is funding the ITTO-backed Independent Market Monitoring (IMM) project, a four-year survey of trade flows and wider timber trade relations between EU and FLEGT VPA supplier countries. EU participants are being quizzed on the products and volumes they import and for wider perspectives on the FLEGT initiative, including whether they expect FLEGT licensed timber to gain a market advantage and attract a premium. ‘The aim is to gather market intelligence of value to both supplier and consumer countries, and potentially in helping steer development of the FLEGT VPA initiative,’ said IMM lead consultant Rupert Oliver. As for the VPA supplier countries, they continue to express enthusiasm for the initiative and their conviction that it deserves support. ‘I want to see Ghana halve its deforestation rate over the next ten to 20 years,’ said Kofi Adu Gyamfi, an assistant district manager at the Ghana Forestry Commission. ‘I’m now optimistic about that for two reasons. One is our ongoing National Forest Plantation Development Programme. The other is FLEGT, which, coupled with existing forestry regulations, will ensure due diligence in the sector, reduce illegal logging and help improve the integrity of our forest resources.’ n

Taking timber beyond traditional boundaries Timber is already known to be a sustainable construction material. But advances in engineering research are proving that timber structures have the capability to challenge preconceived boundaries and deliver enhanced benefits, says Dr Robert Hairstans.

“CLT is imported to the UK from mainland Europe, primarily Austria and Germany, where production is reported to be increasing at a rate of at least 20% year on year.”


imber is a natural, hygroscopic, anisotropic material that must be properly understood if it is to be used efficiently within the built environment. With good silvicultural practices timber can be sourced responsibly and converted (with relatively low energy requirements) to provide environmentally sound construction products. Combining timber construction components appropriately through holistic design, informed detailing and qualityassured building practices will result in a highly energyefficient building fabric that provides user comfort. Thus there is a growing emphasis on the use and application of timber in construction, with its credentials as a sustainable material often cited as the reason why it should be used more widely. I certainly don’t disagree with this, but I do believe that timber should be specified on merit and as part of an overall solution incorporating other materials, as appropriate. Developments in offsite manufacture and modern methods of construction (MMC) mean that there is far more to offsite timber systems than conventional timber frame construction, and with a more strategic approach to research, timber could be used in many more situations – delivering the social, economic and environmental benefits required for sustainable development while being architecturally inspiring.

Where are we now? Currently, the dominant form of timber construction in the UK is timber platform frame (with approximately 25% UK market share), mainly for the low to medium-rise housing market. The utilisation of this approach normally means that open panels are shipped to site to be insulated on site and externally clad with masonry or block and render. This is often regarded as both ‘offsite manufacture’ and MMC, but in fact this is a misrepresentation of the true capabilities of timber offsite MMC. Simply put, offsite MMC is about achieving more for less, and doing so in less total time by employing a factory-based mass-customised approach using an empowered workforce with a well-developed holistic knowledge base. >> www.trada.co.uk

For timber platform frame to be accurately described as an offsite MMC it must evolve towards a closed panel system solution, manufactured off-site to as high a level as possible – including enhancements such as the provision of services, windows and doors and the application of cladding. Carrying out these activities offsite by applying MMC will improve efficiency and reduce waste. More importantly, offsite MMC as described above could extinguish ongoing concerns about the fire performance of timber frame construction in the temporary state, because these systems would be robustly detailed and appropriately lined internally and clad externally prior to erection. A further development would be the adoption of a unified approach to designing and detailing large-scale structural diaphragms (walls, floor and roofs), so that offsite production can move towards larger-scale components for efficient erection processes utilising a growing palette of timber-based materials and advanced connection systems.

Where could offsite MMC take us? Timber offsite MMC is not limited to enhanced panelised system solutions: as an example, ‘solid laminated timber’ products can also be delivered using offsite and MMC.

Solid timber laminated products currently include: interlocking laminated systems or interlocking cross-laminated timber (iCLT); mechanical laminated systems such as nail-lam or dowel-lam (also known as Brettstapel); and bonded laminated systems including glulam, cross-laminated timber (known as crosslam, or CLT) and laminated veneer lumber (LVL). Of the solid laminated timber products, CLT, with its inherent versatility has seen exponential growth in the UK over the last 10 years, with over 270 CLT projects completed between 2003 and 2011, including residential, educational and commercial buildings. Even more impressive is the simplicity of CLT. It is produced by bonding perpendicular timber lamellas of standard stressgraded C16 or C24 materials to form panels that can be cut to the required shape and size in a factory using computer numerical control (CNC) cutting technology. The vast majority of CLT projects undertaken to date in the UK have been in the south of England, with almost 50% of these being in the London region. However, CLT is imported to the UK from mainland Europe, primarily Austria and Germany, where production is reported to be increasing at a rate of at least 20% year on year. Worldwide, facilities now exist in North American, Russia and New Zealand and projections suggest that production of CLT will have increased to approximately 500,000 m3 by the end of 2015. >>

Putting research into practice Engineered timber products and structural systems manufactured in the controlled environment of offsite MMC can redefine the image of timber as a construction material, and consequently challenge the default specification of steel and concrete.

An expanding market Given the new approaches to timber construction and the utilisation of offsite MMC there are real opportunities to add value to the UK resource for this market sector: a clear ‘win’ when it comes to social, economic and environmental sustainability. The technical challenge is ensuring the compatibility of the resource with the controlled manufacturing process. In the case of CLT, for example, moisture content needs to be 12±3% while still meeting the visual dimensional tolerance override requirements of BS EN 14081-1 for the given strength class. This can impinge on waste and correspondingly cost. For the timber industry to realise its full potential, it needs to become less fragmented, with technical information centralised and standardised in a manner that facilitates interoperability across a range of software packages. This will assist the specification process and make the design process more transparent. But the lack of available centralised data will become increasingly relevant – particularly given the demand for accessible, robust and quality data sources for modern software applications particularly with the Government Construction Strategy towards building information modelling (BIM). From a timber engineering perspective this is imperative to enable the structural design and analysis to the European codes of practice that are less empirical and far more analytical in approach. Embracing BIM will enable a vast array of timber construction products to be specified. But in order to ensure correct system selection and corresponding optimal performance in service it is important that design is at the centre of a holistic decision-making process. Future approaches to delivering the built environment will need to achieve a high standard of performance (thermal insulation, reduced cold bridging and acoustic separation), while remaining cost effective and not impinging upon overall structural integrity. Given these drivers for change, timber engineering research needs to be www.trada.co.uk

But to achieve this aim – and the wider social, economic and environmental benefits of building with timber – we need to rethink research and development in the UK to encompass a three-step approach: • Utilise more available home-grown timber in added value products and systems through an enhanced level of knowledge of the resource and understanding of the compatibility challenges with modern manufacturing processes. • Centralise this knowledge in a transparent manner, and create a collaborative platform capable of hosting and maintaining the required environmental, building and structural performance information necessary to facilitate the appropriate design and specification of timber products. • Enable mass customisation via modern software applications and ensure the compatibility of future timber engineering developments with Eurocode-compliant software platforms, streamlining research into practice via appropriate mechanisms that are backed up with a robust understanding of the materials natural performance attributes. This research agenda requires investment and a new approach to knowledge transfer in order to underpin the industry with the required skills in order to enable cultural change toward offsite MMC. n

“In these early decades of the 21st Century, timber is enjoying a renaissance fuelled by a new imperative – sustainability.”


iven a free choice, human beings prefer to live and work in buildings that feature visible and accessible timber. Timber’s sensual qualities – its distinctive colours, surface textures and aromas – speak to something fundamental in the human psyche. Metal and concrete fail to resonate in the same way; only stone has something of the same appeal. This preference may be hardwired into our genes, the legacy of countless generations over the millennia who have turned to timber for shelter and warmth, and who learned how to recognise and exploit the diversity of physical and chemical properties available in the world’s forests.

Despite this appeal, timber as a primary structural material went into decline during the Industrial Revolution, swamped by the new technologies of iron, steel and reinforced concrete which offered more easily predictable properties and inherent incombustibility. Nevertheless, the basic human desire to live surrounded by timber never went away, and exposed oak beams and stripped pine floors continued to be highly desirable features, especially in domestic buildings. In these early decades of the 21st Century, timber is enjoying a renaissance fuelled by a new imperative – sustainability. Sustainability is not just about reducing the carbon footprint of our current construction activities. As the world’s population continues to grow, the challenge is to provide decent yet sustainable habitation for all these new members of the human race. Advanced timber design and construction techniques can be part of the answer –probably a significant part.

Timber in the mainstream Timber can now claim to be a mainstream structural material, thanks to recent developments in timber technology. Advanced adhesives, preservatives and fire protection now make it possible to manufacture ‘engineered timber’ products such as glue-laminated (glulam) beams and arches, laminated veneer lumber (LVL) and I-joists. These products are considerably more predictable and stable in their properties than traditional sawn sections, and so structures can be >> www.trada.co.uk

• During its growth phase timber locks in carbon dioxide, one of the main greenhouse gases driving climate change. • Modern preservatives, adhesives and fire protection are much more environmentally friendly than of yore. • Hardwoods and softwoods from responsibly managed forests are a renewable resource that requires comparatively little capital investment for processing into optimised products. In terms of the wider implications of ‘sustainability’ – the health, wellbeing and economic benefits – careful sourcing is key, and there have been considerable developments in recent years.

designed and analysed with a much higher degree of confidence for resilient, predictable performance and enduring elegance. In addition, sourcing timber from sustainably managed and stewarded forests not only gives societies across the world access to plentiful supplies of renewable and versatile construction materials, it also encourages the conservation of the forests, with long-term benefits to local populations both human and animal. Considering all these benefits, there is little doubt that structural timber should be the very first option considered by any designer seeking to create a truly sustainable building.

Assurances on the sustainability of any particular species or source can be obtained from several certification bodies. These aim to ensure responsible logging of the forests, with the movement of the timber down the supply chain from forest to final customer fully documented and transparent. This is particularly important in the case of popular tropical hardwoods. Illegal logging in virgin rainforest is still a problem, but responsible customers and specifiers can now obtain fully certified timber of all types, including sustainable alternatives to threatened tropical hardwoods – either in the form of more abundant species or even industrially modified softwoods.

Yet timber has struggled to gain recognition as a viable structural option. Two other factors hold it back: engineered timber structures are widely perceived as being more expensive than conventional designs; and there remains a lingering feeling that timber construction is a craft-based process. This is a perception that is now being rectified by improved familiarisation and training in timber design for engineers and architects, better-organised support from industry, and the development of off-site construction methods.

Benefits beyond our shores Every human being on the planet has a vested interest in mitigating the unpredictable effects of the climate changes that are now inevitable. Construction in all its aspects – from raw material extraction and processing to erection, maintenance and demolition – is a major consumer of fossil fuels and hence a significant contributor to the greenhouse effect. Clients, specifiers, designers and contractors should seriously consider anything that can be done to reduce this impact on the environment. And one of the most effective options is to switch to timber. There are three core benefits: www.trada.co.uk

Additional support comes from an increasingly sophisticated and integrated timber supply industry. In Europe and North America there have been significant improvements in the efficiency and sustainability of forestry, with ‘weed’ trees and thinnings no longer discarded or burnt but now seen as potentially valuable raw materials for engineered timbers such as oriented strand board (OSB) and LVL.

architectural and engineering awards. As I write, designers are planning timber residential towers higher than ever believed possible just a few years ago.

Efforts to improve the awareness of timber’s potential are supported by the increasing availability of advanced computer aided design and 3D virtual prototyping techniques. New design codes have been introduced, improved timber products based on advanced modern adhesive technologies. Recent research has developed a vast range of connections, many involving groups of small-diameter metal bolts or self-tapping screws acting in conjunction with separate metal plates. Using such techniques, complex 3D structures can be assembled with confidence and without disfiguring the aesthetic qualities that make timber buildings so appealing to their users and occupants.

To achieve elegant, efficient and robust structures – fit for human habitation and delight – we should remember the words of 20th-century US architectural icon Frank Lloyd Wright. In 1928 he wrote “To use wood with intelligence, we must first understand wood”. In other words, a thorough understanding of the consequences of the natural variation in timber grain, density and moisture content is essential if a successful, durable and visually pleasing outcome is to be achieved. n

And timber’s traditional weaknesses – inflammability, variability, susceptibility to insects and fungi – can now be largely nullified by informed design and specification or by using thermal or chemical processing to transform the basic material into something more stable and durable. The omens are increasingly favourable. Prestige projects that once would have been executed in steel or reinforced concrete are now featuring timber in their primary load-bearing structures.

“A structural frame of glulam timber beams and columns with cross-laminated timber (CLT) floor slabs could be prefabricated off-site and erected at speed while eliminating wet trades from the superstructure.”


he Believe in Better Building, a new building for Sky on its Osterley campus, lives up to its name. It is the tallest commercial timber building in the UK and one of very few multi-storey timber offices in the world. Remarkably, it was designed and built in less than a year, starting on site only three months after Arup Associates’ design team was commissioned. It is an exemplar of sustainable design, achieving a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, while the interior is an exemplar of World Green Council guidance on design for health and well-being of building occupants due to the quality of its environment. This is a unique and flexible workplace, constructed in half the usual time by the use of modern precision-engineered timber construction systems. Sky’s brief specified a set of ‘super-flexible’ spaces which would accommodate the rapidly changing technology and working practices of the media industry. And these spaces had to go up at super speed – to be finished in time for Sky’s 25th anniversary in November 2014, then only a year away. To meet such a remarkably tight deadline, timber was the best choice; a structural frame of glulam timber beams and columns with cross-laminated timber (CLT) floor slabs could be prefabricated off-site and erected at speed while eliminating wet trades from the superstructure (CLT slabs can be installed at twice the rate of reinforced concrete slabs). By using large prefabricated panel timber cassettes to create the façades, a waterproof external envelope could be achieved early in the programme. Timber offered other advantages: it is a sustainable, lowimpact construction material with a surface finish which is warm, varied in colour and can be uniquely beautiful. The installation of a timber structure is generally less noisy than conventional wet construction, another important consideration when building at the centre of a working campus. The building can accommodate up to 400 people and stands at the heart of Sky’s Osterley campus. Its three main floors are linked by a wide and open main staircase which >>

rises through a triple-height atrium to a rooftop restaurant with an open terrace and great views. Externally the building makes a bold statement; the main staircase projects from the north façade in a series of dramatic inclines, fully glazed to reveal the activity inside. The three floors were designed with no particular fixed use; instead, a series of internal room partitions slide and unfold to create a shifting landscape of creative thinking rooms, breakout spaces and informal meeting rooms. A large open-plan space on the second floor can accommodate large meetings or gatherings and can be used just as easily for training or for large corporate events for up to 150 people. The ground floor is designed to house Sky’s Academy apprentice training and schools experience programmes. When not in use for this purpose, it can be transformed into offices or space for informal group meetings or creative activities. The floors are linked by the staircase; at first and second floors it widens and divides to create informal sitting and social spaces with views over the atrium and out to a newly created park-like plaza.

The design programme The team started work on the project in October 2013; work on site began in January 2014 and the building was completed in October 2014, in time for Sky’s 25th anniversary in November 2014. Professional collaboration helped to achieve this. Arup Associates is a multi-disciplinary practice based on collaboration between architects and engineers; for this project the team of Mace, the contractor, moved into Arup Associates’

office for the three month design programme. Together they developed the design in parallel with procurement and construction strategies, before moving to site in January. From concept stage, key members of the supply chain, in particular B&K Structures, were part of the project team. Together they discussed how to optimise the speed of construction of both frame and envelope. Arup Associates developed a BIM model of the building which was used for 3D BIM reviews with the contractor and designer during design and construction to coordinate the process. The model was also used as a ‘4D planning’ tool by main contractor Mace and was passed to B&K Structures so that they could begin to fabricate the glulam frame at the earliest opportunity.

The glulam frame was let on a reference design and performance specification (based on the principles of the new National Structural Timber Specification) to allow B&K Structures to optimise the final details for their fabrication and erection method. While Arup Associates worked on the final foundation designs, B&K Structures engaged structural engineer engenuiti to finalise the design and fabrication drawings, based on the Arup reference design. To avoid additional fit-out trades, B&K Structures installed the CLT risers and some fixed partitions at the same time as the frame was being erected. >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

The structure The structural frame consists of glulam columns – generally 280 x 560mm - set between paired glulam beams, generally 260 x 920mm, bolted through with M24 bolts which were then plugged. The CLT floor slabs, generally 220mm thick, span between the beams and were fixed with Heco screws and brackets. Structural walls are limited to the stair cores, lifts and divisions between plant and public spaces. This is unusual, as CLT buildings usually rely on numerous load-bearing walls or stability cores with steel bracing or concrete walls. The exception is on the second floor where, to achieve a column-free space with unobstructed views for large meetings, a steel transfer truss is concealed in the wall of the plant room on the floor above.

A standard raised access floor system gives flexibility and accommodates the intense IT and MEP systems required by the media industry, together with air supply equipment. The raised floor provides a cavity between floor and slab which enhances acoustic separation between floors, so that no further acoustic treatment of the timber was required. As the main services are housed in the raised access floor cavity, there was no need for suspended ceilings and the timber soffits of the CLT slabs could be exposed. The fire strategy was designed to avoid the need for sprinklers; the two cores are protected and have generous escape staircase widths.

Timber and sustainability The glulam frame and CLT floor slabs, a unique structure of this size for a commercial building in the UK, achieves beyond zero embodied CO2 emissions (including carbon sequestered when the trees grow). All the structural elements are PEFC certified; the spruce glulam and spruce CLT were sourced from sustainably stewarded forests adjacent to the factories in Austria. The panel sizes were designed to be transported with maximum efficiency. All the timber components were manufactured with zero waste on site and any waste materials in production went to bio-mass CHP (combined heat and power), with the energy produced used to heat the factories. The main staircase and its informal social spaces are lined with FSCÂŽ certified birch Plexwood, from managed forests in Sweden and Finland. Other joinery elements are made of FSC certified plywood. The handrails to the staircase and balustrades are of English oak. The building has been a success; so much so that Sky has commissioned their next building, a health and fitness centre, to be built with similar timber construction techniques. A new office building, currently on site, has been altered to include timber breakout spaces and a timber roof, the largest in the UK. n www.trada.co.uk

Timber structures CLT

A short introduction to cross-laminated timber Cross-laminated timber – an innovative, sustainable option with numerous advantages for off-site construction – has a significant role to play within the 21st Century building industry. Here is a short guide to the material and its applications.


he well-known environmental advantages of using timber as a construction material, coupled with the wider technical and performance benefits of products such as cross-laminated timber (CLT) and glued laminated timber (glulam), are enabling the construction industry to deliver innovative and costeffective timber buildings.

What is CLT? Cross-laminated timber is a factory-made construction product based on a manufacturing technique developed in the late 20th Century. Essentially, slices of softwood timber are assembled to form sheets, with the grain of each sheet set perpendicular to its neighbour. The sheets or layers (sometimes known as lamellas) are then glued together under pressure (laminated) to create a stable, structural product. The timber is kiln dried before lamination to reduce its moisture content to around 12%, simultaneously reducing the instability that could occur due to material shrinkage and minimising the risk of rot or fungal and pest attack.

The process of cross lamination limits the material’s crossgrain movement, resulting in a multi-layered, inherently stable, planar product. However, the panels do not have a single direction of structural span, performing instead in a multi-directional manner, and therefore providing a great degree of flexibility in how they can be used. It is important to note that the outermost direction of timber therefore does not necessarily correlate with the direction of structural span, although performance is enhanced if it does. The principal difference between CLT and the other wellknown innovation in engineered timber – glulam – is that in the latter the timber is glued in layers that are parallel with each other, rather than perpendicular. This gives glulam directional strength, which is why glulam elements are chiefly used for structural elements such as beams and columns. >>

The timber layers are assembled so that they are symmetrical around a middle layer. This results in panels that usually comprise three, five or seven lamellas, and range from 50mm to 300mm in thickness, although thicker panels are possible. Within the factory the resulting CLT panels are cut and processed to the designer’s specific requirements using a computer numerical control (CNC) machine that can produce precisely sized panels with cut-outs for windows, doors and building services as required, as well as any necessary rebates to the edge of panels. Panels are commonly available up to 16.5m x 2.95m in size and can, if required, be produced by some manufacturers to 20m x 4.8m, with the practicalities of transportation generally being the limiting factor. www.trada.co.uk

Timber structures CLT

Cross-laminated timber is generally fabricated using European softwoods – typically spruce, but occasionally larch and pine – ideally sourced from managed forests with environmental certification by FSC® or PEFC™.1 These raw materials give the CLT panels a pale appearance that will gently yellow over time when exposed to sunlight, if untreated. UV treatments are available that will protect the timber and help retain the initial hue, and can be brush or spray applied. Colour applications or stains can also be used to achieve a particular aesthetic result. If the materials are to be left exposed, care is required during construction to avoid water staining or other accidental marks. The timber lamella are typically bonded together using formaldehyde-free adhesives, which is a more environmentally benign choice than other adhesives (less risk from toxic emissions/off-gassing). The main producers of both CLT and glulam are currently located in central Europe and Scandinavia. Transport by articulated lorry brings the completed pre-fabricated panels from these locations to the UK for fast site assembly.

Typical applications for CLT In general, CLT panels are used to form the inner layer of a composite construction, and insulated and clad externally. The panels can be used to form wall, floor and roof elements within buildings, but can also be used to construct service cores and stairs. Connections between panels are made using brackets or long, self-drilling woodscrews. The panels combine structural and enclosing properties, providing a loadbearing capacity spread over the entire width of each panel. This large bearing area affords a great degree of freedom in the positioning of openings for doors, windows and services penetrations. Meanwhile, the relatively lightweight nature of CLT, in comparison with steel, concrete and masonry, reduces foundation requirements and makes CLT a suitable option for building on sites with difficult ground conditions, bridging over existing infrastructure or even reusing existing foundations. Hybrid structural solutions are also possible, combining the advantages of solid timber construction with those of other materials and systems. Typical combinations include: • constructing a CLT structure above ground level on top of a concrete basement structure • combining CLT and concrete in a structural composite floor build-up where the timber panels act as permanent formwork for the concrete • using CLT panels for loadbearing walls and timber frame for non-loadbearing external walls, where insulation can fit between the studwork to reduce the overall wall thickness. In addition, CLT can be used in combination with a glulam or steel frame to provide more open-plan spaces.

Specifying CLT panels CLT panels are available in a number of finish grades and can be either exposed or concealed internally. Manufacturers offer various finish options (which can be classified in relation to BS EN 13017-1 Solid wood panels – classification by surface appearance) but these generally approximate to three grades:

• Standard Grade (or Non-Visible) – panels have a rough surface finish that may display some discolouration, and the outer layers can have knot holes and open joints up to 3mm. This grade is generally lined and used in concealed locations within the finished building. • Industrial Visible Grade – panels offer an intermediate finish that can be used internally as an exposed surface although larger open joints up to 2mm and some knot holes are to be expected. The panels will nevertheless have a planed and sanded finish. >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

• Visible Grade (Domestic Visible) – offers a good quality surface finish suitable for exposed situations. Open joints, cracks and knot holes might all be present in this grade, but they are generally small and occasional, and do not affect the overall impression. It is also worth noting that there can be different expectations of what is acceptable from each grade, so designers and clients should obtain reference panels from the supplier.

Working with CLT There are numerous benefits to using engineered timber, but perhaps the most notable advantage of CLT is the remarkable speed with which solid timber structures can be erected. The programme benefits can also lead to cost savings, most directly as a result of the relationship between a faster programme and reduced contract preliminaries, but also because of reduced foundation requirements through lighter construction and thinner slabs as a consequence of greater load distribution. In addition, the high level of precision when forming openings means that windows and doors can be pre-ordered in confidence, without the need for first taking site dimensions. Other practical on-site benefits include: • The solid, continuous surface of the timber facilitates quick, simple and flexible fixing for subsequent elements, including windows and doors, drylining, insulation and cladding. • The reduction in wet trades and the ability to fix the panels with handheld, lightweight tools makes CLT building sites safer and quieter than those with concrete superstructures. • Eliminating the health risks associated with vibrating machinery of concrete construction, as well as reducing deliveries by ready-mix concrete trucks, results in less disruption to neighbouring properties.

Summary: the main benefits of CLT • Durability – providing it is suitably protected against moisture and damp, CLT is durable, as many centuries-old timber buildings confirm. • Inherently insulating – the insulating capability (U-value) of CLT panels contributes to the thermal performance of a construction build-up, although additional insulation is usually needed. • Thermal mass – the thermal mass of these wood elements helps in the storage and slow release of energy, to moderate the thermal variations within a daily cycle; while the low thermal conductivity of CLT means that the timber surface feels warmer to touch than materials such as concrete and steel (a property that is particularly welcome in colder months). www.trada.co.uk

• Excellent airtightness – when used as a large-format, panelised material that is machined to high tolerances, CLT provides a building with excellent airtightness. Joints between panels are either detailed to incorporate an expandable, insulating tape or taped on the outside face to achieve airtightness. • Moisture control – the panels, being made of a natural material, absorb and release moisture over time, and this hygroscopic performance can improve the quality of internal environments, moderating the moisture content within a space. In addition, the material’s vapour permeability means it can be effectively used as an integral part of a breathing wall construction. • Inherent fire protection – fire protection depends on the panel thickness (though tends to be better than traditional timber frame construction), and the panels provide a surface that chars under fire conditions, protecting the material below from further deterioration and structural collapse. • Sound insulation – the panels are dense so provide a barrier to sound transmission, which can be improved by the application of a lining such as plasterboard to one or both sides as necessary. • Reuse and recycling – relatively little energy is needed to convert the raw timber to CLT panels (compared with, say, the manufacture of steel). And at the end of the building’s life the panels may be dismantled and re-used, in which case the carbon remains stored. Alternatively, the panels can be used as fuel for biomass. n

Timber structures Glulam

Glulam – connecting with future developments Architects and engineers have embraced the benefits of glulam to create elegant and aesthetically pleasing buildings. Andrew Wylie, Graham Clarke and Jonathan Roynon review progress to date and survey the future for this engineered timber technique.


lued laminated timber (glulam) beams and columns have been used for decades as an engineered timber product that allows designers to span further, carrying heavier loads while retaining all of the benefits of using wood in structures.

Development started in the late 19th century as a method of creating larger and more consistent timber elements, the system of gluing together graded pieces of timber seeks to achieve increased material consistency and strength. Since then, architects and engineers have embraced the pleasing aesthetic of exposed timber and exploited the enhanced material properties of this engineered product to create elegant and energy-efficient buildings. Typical forms have included beam and column frames with simple shear and axial connections and more recently – encouraged by the development of forming curved glulam beams – arched structures such as the Sheffield Winter Gardens have been realised.

Current innovations in glulam structures The conventional arch and beam arrangements for glulam structures allow a wide variety of building forms to be achieved, but to truly compete with other engineering materials in all forms it is necessary to look at alternative techniques both in terms of design, detailing and fabrication so open up new possibilities in glulam structures. The development of more powerful modelling and analysis software has opened up new possibilities for the forms that can be imagined and created. For glulam structures this has been particularly relevant to the creation of free form gridshelltype roof structures which had previously only been possible with physical modelling and/or very bespoke electronic design tools. The advent of parametric 3D modelling has made the interactive iterative development of even the most complex form a far more accessible and cost-effective process. When this is then integrated into a project using building information modelling (BIM) and linked with latest finite element analysis software, it is possible to very quickly analyse an initial concept and then take it through the various design stages to the final drawings in a manner that was never previously possible. These software tools have been great for the development of ideas and overall designs, but couldn’t deliver these more complex structures without the parallel developments in the design of connections, which are critical to the success of timber structures – more so than in any other material.

Making the connections

Arched beams at the Sheffield Winter Gardens


Conventional timber connections typically only needed to transfer shear and axial loads, but the more complex modern designs and forms also need to carry bending moments. There were traditionally avoided in timber because it is often very difficult to get sufficient strength and stiffness, due to joint slip, creep and so on. Addressing these challenges is critical to the success of complex structures using glulam. >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

Timber structures Glulam

Conventional connections for glulam structures have involved a steel flitch bolted to the glulam beams. In more complex structure these flitches are connected by a steel node that allows rotation of the flitch plates between connecting members to take up the complex form. However, although bolts are a perfectly acceptable connection method for shear and axial connections, they have far too much movement potential to provide sufficiently stiff connections such as those needed for the more complex forms, where the joint often does not coincide with a vertical support.

Construction of Scunthorpe Pods

However, a common issue with all of these connections – and often even with simple shear or axial connections – is that the joining of relatively deep timber members to a steel plate can result in varying degrees of constraint to the timber. As the building warms and dries out following completion the timber shrinks and the constraint from the steel plates can result in the build-up of across-grain tension stresses, which can eventually lead to splitting of the timber. This splitting can impact the section stiffness/strength and, if the cracks run through the connection lines (which they often tend to due to the natural weakness the fixings produce) there is the potential for a reduction in connection capacity and stiffness.

Typical node connection system for glulam structures

Replacing the bolts with tight-tolerance dowels greatly improves this stiffness, but brings with it other challenges – not least the need for much tighter fabrication of both the steel and timber to make these joints buildable without the usual tolerances provided by oversized holes. Computer numeric control (CNC) fabrication techniques have allowed this to be achieved although there is still a need to make some allowance within the joint for the uptake of final installation tolerance between members. Another option successfully deployed on several structures is to use small-diameter self-drilling screws which can be installed through the glulam and steel plate in one operation, hence removing the need for any predrilling and associated tight tolerance fabrication. Glued-in rods is another solution which has been successfully used on projects such as the Scunthorpe Pods. With these connections the flitch plate is no longer required, reducing steel tonnage, and instead a series of threaded steel bars are glued into the ends of the glulam beams. This allows the beams to be directly connected to the central node. www.trada.co.uk

This problem is one that has not been given a lot of focus in the industry to date, but it is important to address the issue to give clients confidence in glulam structures because cracks, even when not impacting on the structural performance, are often a worry for clients. There are ways to mitigate this splitting, providing it is considered properly early on in the design. Solutions can include: simply designing extra redundancy into the joint; the use of slotted holes; split connections to reduce the restraining effect; externally applied reinforcing plates; or glued-in reinforcing bars or vertical reinforcing screws. Timber is weakest when resisting cross-grain tension and as such significant benefits can be achieved by reinforcing perpendicular to the grain direction. Using fully threaded screws to reinforce timber has been shown to be an effective way to increase resistance to splitting of timber, and this can have various benefits including where connections are notched or when resisting localised stresses around penetrations through members. Other design factors, such as fire resistance, can also have a big impact on connection design. Metallic fasteners are >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

susceptible to fire and are often recessed into a member so that timber plugs can be fitted as protection. However, in some cases this can lead to a relatively short length of embedment in the timber and result in an increased number of fasteners being required. Non-metallic fasteners have been the subject of research in recent years including both fibrereinforced polymers (FRP) and timber fasteners; as have timber connections/structures where no metallic parts are used at all.

Future developments in glulam What will be the next evolution of composite glulam beam? Will new higher-grade materials be used where they provide the most benefit and lower-grade materials be chosen for areas where member stresses are lower? These are questions that are particularly relevant for long-span structures. The benefits of such ‘optimised hybrid beams’ would include reduced material volumes, reduced variability of material properties and potentially increasing the ductility of failure mechanisms. One strand of research in improving strength and stiffness of new and existing glulam structures is the use of FRP – for instance, bonding FRP to the timber either to the face of the member or, for new glulam structures, bonding FRP strips or rods in between timber laminations. The FRP spans over defects or discontinuities in the timber laminations, and testing has shown that this gives these hybrid elements a more consistent performance. This research is aiming to improve understanding of behaviour of timber members reinforced with FRP and produce possible design methodology. The outcome of this research will be products and systems that reduce material use and allow timber members to span further, while at the same time providing predictability of performance. However, although optimisation could be achieved throughout a structure by varying the thickness of FRP reinforcing layers, careful consideration will need to be given if these are to be bonded between lamina layers, because these will be difficult to check on site. Another area of research is the potential for further development of complex connection forms. As 3D printing becomes more prevalent there may be significant benefits to be made in using this technology to create complex metallic nodes for timber connections. This has the potential to achieve nodal forms that may be difficult to fabricate using tradition welding techniques while delivering both improved aesthetics and increased material efficiency. As many dramatic exposed roof structures require these complex structural nodes, enhancements to their appearance could have a significant impact on the aesthetics of the structure. www.trada.co.uk

Another form of hybrid glulam structure which is the subject on ongoing research and development is timber concrete composite floors. These use glulam beams working compositely with the concrete floor slab to increase the strength and stiffness of the beam. The concrete can provide benefits to the structure, such as improved acoustic separation between floors, while adding thermal mass and improved fire resistance. Connectors have been specifically developed by some manufacturers to provide this composite action and others have been investigating pre-casting composite timber-concrete floors. With further refinement and the development of a codified design methodology the UK construction industry could see benefits from a significant uptake in this form of construction. Although reinforcing cross-grain splitting in glulam is a technique currently employed on many structures, there are potentially further benefits that require additional research to be fully realised. For instance, large groups of metallic fasteners where their combined capacity will be reduced by splitting of the timber can result in significant reductions in design capacity. The splitting is caused by the combined prying action of the fastener group, but additional reinforcement, in the form of fully threaded screws, has been shown to lead to a significantly smaller reductions in capacity. Further research and testing is required to develop design guidance, but this technique has the potential to lead to more efficient connections and, as connection design can govern member sizing, more efficient structures. n

Timber structures Adhesives / Connections

Choosing adhesives for on-site bonding There are numerous adhesives, but not all are suitable for on-site bonding. Dave Smedley and Donald Melrose explain the options.


oisture content, temperature, humidity and surface preparation are key to the quality of a bond. Adhesive products to be used on site need specific properties that are different from adhesives commonly used in factories, for the following reasons:

Typically, epoxy systems are two-part thermosetting adhesives and include a wide range of formulations. These are required for practical reasons, to include good gap-filling shrink resistant properties, excellent tensile/shear strength, high dry and wet strength, and good resistance against moisture and certain chemicals.

• The quality of wood surfaces is not easy to control on site. • Bonding pressures and controlled temperatures are not easy to achieve on site. • Factory-produced bonded assemblies usually have bond line thicknesses of 0.5mm or lower, whereas the bond line thicknesses found in on-site bonding may be 1mm or even as high as 12mm.

Although no specific standards for epoxy adhesives exist to date, it is widely accepted that they are suitable for limited exterior service environments corresponding to the Service Classes 1 and 2, as defined in EN 1995-1-1.

On site it is important to use classes of adhesives that are characterised by good substrate wetting properties and high internal cohesive strength. In addition, it is important to choose adhesives where the desired final adhesion properties can be achieved without the need for pressure during bonding, and without the need for a specific temperature. Glue laminated timber manufacturing plants typically use urea formaldehyde (UF), melamine formaldehyde (MF), melamine urea formaldehyde (MUF) (which is a combination of the two), or phenol resorcinol formaldehyde (PRF). All of these products require factory conditions of correct heating and humidity, and, more importantly, high pressures and controlled thin bond lines (glue lines). PRF resins require consistent and relatively high and even pressure across the joining area, and there are only very rare on-site situations where it would be possible to use these factory products with any commercial viable clamping method.

With regard to fibreglass reinforced plastic (FRP) and carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) bonding, structural epoxy adhesives are the generally accepted products in bonded FRP/CFRP–wood connections. Epoxy resins used for the reinforcement/repair of structural timber elements are two-component solvent-free systems in which the prepolymer (usually called Part A), is a component containing the epoxy functional (chemical) groups, whereas the hardener or curing agent (Part B) includes hydrogen-containing molecules that can react with the epoxy ring, thus forming intermolecular bonds constituting a cross-linked three-dimensional structure. Hardeners (curing agents) are commonly used with the base epoxy. For products used in timber bonding, the hardeners must be sufficiently reactive to allow the composite reaction to fully cure at room temperature (i.e. a minimum curing temperature of approximately 5–10°C). The effect of temperature on the curing rate is appreciable. Figure 1, below, shows how the tensile-stress-at-rupture vs. time curve moves upwards by increasing the curing time. >>

Therefore, for practical applications on site two-part epoxy adhesives are currently the most common choice for bonding structural timber, although two-part polyurethane and polyester adhesives are also sometimes used. (For a full list of adhesives for structural use, see Table 1.)

Epoxy adhesives The key feature of epoxy adhesives that makes them suitable for the on-site bonding of timber components is that they are able to cure at moderately low temperatures. www.trada.co.uk

Fig 1: Tensile stress at rupture vs. time at different curing temperatures for a commercial epoxy product: (<) 20°C; (•) 30°C; (*) 50°C. Tensile values have been all measured at 20°C.

If curing occurs at temperatures lower than the glass transition temperature (Tg) of the product, the effect on the final strength values is less pronounced. Commercial formulations contain several additives such as fillers, thickeners and pigments, plus reactive epoxy diluents. and pigments. These influence the final physical characteristics and properties of the cured adhesive. Viscosity and rheology are strongly affected by both the amount and the nature of the fillers and, moreover, the presence of fillers appreciably reduces the exothermic effects of the two-component liquid curing system. The addition of fillers also reduces the quantity of the more expensive liquid epoxy and curing agent. A good balance between filler amount, granulometry and chemical nature of the fillers, typically silica or graded inorganic fillers, have an appreciable effect on the mechanical characteristics of the cured system.

Polyurethane adhesives Two-component polyurethanes are polymers that form when a prepolymer reacts with a hardener. The hardeners are rich compounds rich in hydroxyl ions (alkaline), very often having a similar chemical nature to the compounds used to produce prepolymers. Significantly, environmental humidity or timber moisture may prematurely and over-initiate the curing reaction. Resins catalysts can also be used to control the curing reaction rate. It should also be noted that bubbles of carbon dioxide gas are formed during the curing process. However, this reaction can be regulated by controlling the chemistry of the prepolymer or the hardener.

Phenol-resorcinol-formaldehyde adhesives Phenol-resorcinol-formaldehyde (PRF) resins are two-component thermosetting adhesives commonly used in the production of www.trada.co.uk

exterior-grade wood lamination and finger jointing. PRF products capable of setting at room temperature at an acceptable rate. However, although they produce high strength bonds that are very resistant to both water and weather when exposed to many climatic conditions, their use in bonding timber on site is reduced owing to their limited gap-filling quality and their requirement to be used in a controlled heat and pressure situation.

Achieving high-performance bonds on site One of the distinctive features that differentiates bonding on site from bonding during factory production is the appreciable difference in bondline thickness. This in turn induces a completely different shear area stress distribution, and in addition the cohesive internal strength of the adhesive layer assumes a significant role in determining the performance of the joint. For example, a thinner glueline produces higher shear stress and lower normal stress for a glued lap joint, within the range 0.05–0.2mm. Moreover, the shear stress at the critical stress location (close to the bonded edges) is sensitive to bondline thickness. The various design factors that affect the bond performance include anchorage length, rod diameter, bondline thickness, rod-tograin angle, edge distance, adhesive stiffness and wood density. If timber is subjected to creep, the behaviour of the bond strongly depends on both the environmental humidity and the loading history. Visco-elastic adhesives such as epoxies and polyurethanes also suffer from creep: how important this can be is related to how close the service temperature is to the Glass Transition Temperature (Tg) of those products (the closer it is, the larger the creep effect), to the humidity level (humidity can potentially act as a swelling agent), and to the adhesive crosslink density. The resulting progressive deformation will continue until rupture or yielding. >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

It is possible to increase the Tg of room temperature curing. For example, it has been shown that the chemical addition of liquid rubber nano-fillers to the base component of a commercial twopart epoxy adhesive induced a strain recovery under constant load, due to the restriction in the slippage, reorientation and motion of polymer chains, thus increasing the Tg of the modified product.

Conclusion The selection of an appropriate adhesive for individual onsite applications very much depends on a broad range of factors. There is no single adhesive for all applications. Due consideration needs to be given to loadings, substrates, environmental conditions but, most importantly, the ability to control the process of preparation and installation on site. n

Keeping the rain out: good site practice for timber frame buildings Changes to the building regulations mean that many party wall cavities are now being insulated, but site practice can result in moisture getting trapped in the cavity, leading to fungal growth and, ultimately, decay. Robin Lancashire explains the problem and how to avoid it.


esearch has demonstrated that leaving a party wall cavity clear allows it to act like a chimney, pulling warm air upwards towards a cold roof space, with colder air moving in behind it. This cycle of air movement affects the thermal performance of buildings that have party wall cavities, even though insulation is already present between studs (for acoustic performance). Changes to building regulations in recent years have aimed to reduce heat loss and energy use, resulting in many more timber frame party wall cavities being insulated. Historically, party wall heat loss was not considered in energyuse calculations, but now building regulations state that it is only permissible to ignore heat loss through party walls and declare it to have a heat loss factor (U-value) of 0.00 W/m2K heat loss if the cavity is fully filled with insulation and has effective cavity

edge sealing. The result is that, to comply with difficult to achieve and expensive thermal performance regulations, many party wall cavities in timber frame buildings are now filled with mineral wool. Previously – that is, before ‘party wall thermal bypass’ was identified as a phenomenon – open-panel timber frames of many sizes and multiple storeys were erected in British weather, over a number of weeks, getting a bit damp in the process. The roof covering went on and the timber frame began to dry back down, because it was well ventilated and moisture did not get trapped in the timber frame materials. Only then did the insulation, polythene vapour control layer and linings get installed in a dry environment. The timber stays dry and should remain dry to deliver a good service life. So what happens on today’s timber frame site to meet current thermal performance requirements? The current trend is to install party wall insulation during the timber frame erection process. A sheathed party wall leaf is put up, it has mineral wool fixed to its face and then the adjacent party wall leaf is erected next to it, sandwiching the mineral wool in place. If it is raining, the mineral wool gets wet.

Mineral wool exposed to weather during construction


Floor decks are then installed and, if it rains, they discharge some of the water down the party wall cavity. This process is repeated on each storey of the building. When the roof is put on, the exposed areas of the timber frame begins to dry, but the insulation – particularly at the base of party wall cavities – can be very wet and the timber surrounding the area can be up to 100% moisture content. Oriented strand board (OSB) sheathing may become saturated and swell, weakening it. The route for liquid water to escape from the party wall cavity can be restricted and, if so, it will take a long time before the timber moisture content can begin to fall, especially at the base of each wall panel. >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

The risk of poor site practice Checks should be carried out to confirm that timber elements, particularly at the base of panels, are dry (below 20% moisture content) before proceeding. However, we are aware that this important check can be overlooked, despite recommendations from Exova BM TRADA, and the requirements of warranty providers. Without the checks, insulation is installed between the party wall stud voids for acoustic performance and a polythene air barrier placed over both sides of the wall in to achieve low air permeability for the building envelope, making it far more difficult for the wet timber frame wall to dry. With no planned ventilation or drainage, it is difficult to see how any wet timber will dry. If timber remains above 20% moisture content for a prolonged period of time, fungal decay can commence. Once the building is occupied, with heating from both sides of the party wall in winter, the party wall temperature is unlikely to fall much below 20 degrees centigrade all year round. With the addition of trapped water, the party wall cavity becomes an ideal home for fungal spores to grow. These spores are present naturally in the air and multiply rapidly when conditions allow. Structural timbers, even with preservative treatment to slow the effect, will gradually decay if they remain above the decay threshold for a prolonged time. How will occupiers become aware if there is a problem? Continuing to build using methods that trap moisture in party walls puts the long-term future of our industry at risk.

Cavity moisture penetrating head of party wall

Avoiding wet timber in party wall cavities that are insulated before a weathertight shell is achieved is a challenge in British weather. Without adding unwanted time and expense to the current trend for the construction process, there remains a risk that water can find its way into places that are difficult to escape from. But this is a risk that many in the construction industry seem willing to take; or perhaps it is a risk that is not fully understood. The “Secured by Design” (SBD) initiative is concerned that intruders may choose to cut holes through party walls of occupied dwellings. They require timber sheathing or expanded metal to be included in party walls for this reason. For convenience they cite an existing detail “Robust Details” E-WT-2 as a way of complying and this has driven an increase in the use of party walls fully sheathed on the cavity side of both wall leafs. However, when using this detail with the addition of thermal insulation in the cavity, it then becomes almost impossible to install the insulation when the building is weathertight. An alternative detail is needed to enhance security for SBD and ensure cavities are kept dry. To reduce this risk some erectors now install wide damp-proof course (DPC) strips at the tops of each storey of party walls, directly under floor joists, with the aim of preventing rainwater from running further down the party wall cavity. Sometimes this is repeated on top of the floor decks too, to prevent water from upper walls running into the party wall floor zone, although it is less effective as it may allow water to run onto the floor deck and around underneath it. While these DPC strips provide some protection in some situations, they may also risk trapping smaller amounts of moisture in more places.

Timber structures Timber frame

Installation of insulation in these party walls is a relatively simple task and can be done once the building is weather tight

Beating the British weather There are several options, depending on circumstances: • Insulation should not be installed until the building is weather tight and timber moisture content is below the decay threshold of 20%. This can be done, but will not be so easy or cost efficient as installing it during the timber frame erection process. • Many party walls have OSB sheathing installed on both leafs, but not all of it is required structurally. Using OSB only where it is required structurally, and planning its location with insulation in mind will allow easier access to the party wall cavity so that the insulation can be installed once a weathertight shell is achieved.

• On large sites where a lot of timber frame construction is ongoing, it is now common for non-combustible boards to be installed to provide both site fire resistance and racking resistance. However, these may need to be removed and replaced boardby-board to allow access to the cavity at the appropriate time. • Blown fibre insulation may offer solutions to otherwise inaccessible areas. We published a Construction Briefing in 2010 explaining the issue of party wall thermal bypass. Within it we warned of the risks of trapped party wall moisture and proposed ways to avoid the risk by installing insulation once a building is weather tight. Exova BM TRADA’s popular book ‘Timber Frame Construction’ (5th edition) published in 2011 discusses the issue and looks at alternative methods. The Structural Timber Association has also raised the issue in a recent advice note titled ‘Timber stud frame separating walls’. To avoid potential damage to our industry in the future we must all be aware of the risks and make provision to keep party walls dry during the construction phase. n

Avoiding wind-induced risks for renewables on roofs Roof-mounted photovoltaic and solar thermal systems represent an additional load on the roof that must be accounted for prior to installation. This article, based on extracts from a recent Digest published by BRE, explains the importance of getting the calculations right.

“A significant change in roof loading is when the loading upon the roof is increased by more than 15%.” (Source: Approved Document A, para. 4.4)


oof-mounted solar thermal (ST) and photovoltaic (PV) systems must be designed and installed to withstand the maximum wind loads expected during their lifetime. This means that designers and specifiers of such systems need an understanding of the wind speeds expected at the site, and the applicable pressure coefficients, for both new build projects or where the systems are to be retrofitted to an existing roof. The problem is that the current British Standard for wind actions (BS EN 1991-1-4 and the associated UK National Annex to BS EN 1991-1-4) gives methods for calculating the wind actions for buildings and civil engineering works, but does not specifically include wind loads on roof-mounted solar systems. Indeed, there are no British or European Standards that give specific guidance on the wind loads relating to these system. However, BRE produced a Digest on this topic in 2004 which, at the time, was based on the best information available for a limited range of integrated and above-roof types of roofmounted PV systems. But more than a decade on, the market for these systems has expanded rapidly in the UK and around the world. This means that, as well as there being a growing need for clear guidance, there are now many more systems and more varieties to be considered. BRE has therefore published a new Digest, which is based on more recent research and on practical knowledge of the wider range of roof-mounted systems that are currently available.

Factors that must be considered In terms of specific calculations, a roof-mounted solar installation includes: • the complete solar system and each of the component parts including the modules, cover plate, supporting rails, clamps or fixings • the underlying roof structure. >> www.trada.co.uk

Clearly, the system represents an additional load to the roof, so careful consideration must be given to any additional loads imposed on the roof, including: • the weight of the module and its support system • the weight of snow • loads imposed during the construction (e.g. foot traffic, materials storage) • wind-induced effects. Of these, it is the wind-induced effects that are the most problematic to calculate, because they may differ considerably for every installation. If the system is to be incorporated into a new building, the necessary calculations will be an integral part of the overall design. But for retrofit situations, it is particularly important to ensure that the system does not have a detrimental impact on an existing roof or building. For that reason, the Building Regulations 2010 (England and Wales) – specifically, Approved Document A: Structure – state that, if a retrofit solar system increases the applied roof loading by more than 15%, then the structural integrity of the roof structure and supporting structure must be assessed. If that is the case, the assessment should take account of any increased load or load distribution from the solar installation which could, for example, change the behaviour of the trusses, causing members designed for tension to go into compression, and vice versa.

96 |

Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

Solar installations also generate point loads where they are fixed to the roof structure; and Approved Document A stipulates that this effect should be structurally assessed even for installations where the overall roof loading is not increased by more than 15%. Also, if the solar system increases the overall roof loading by more than 15% and it is found that the roof cannot support the additional load, then it must be strengthened; this is then classed as a ‘material alteration’ under building regulations.

The calculation procedure Calculating wind loads is conceptually simple, although quite complex in practice. It involves first working out the characteristics of the wind at the specific site by: • finding the fundamental value for the basic wind velocity from a special wind map (provided in the Digest) • applying various factors to that value, to account for site altitude, wind direction, season effects and probability of wind occurrence. Then the specifics of the building are taken into account: building height, situation (town or country) and orography (topography). Finally, the wind pressure is obtained by multiplying the ‘peak velocity pressure’ by a ‘pressure coefficient’, which depends on the geometry of the specific building. Peak velocity pressure is obtained from the BS EN, or by using the calculations in the Digest. However, pressure coefficients are not readily available

Timber structures Roofs

because they are not in the BS EN. The Digest provides this essential information: the recommended values of pressure coefficients for roof-mounted solar systems, derived from codified data, from research based on wind tunnel and full-scale measurements and from other published sources.

Design considerations for different system types For the purposes of designing for wind loading, the Digest defines 10 generic solar system types, which cover the majority of common solar installations. These range from newly built integrated systems, through conventional domestic retrofits, to unconventional designs for large-scale industrial or commercial applications. The most common of these is probably the domestic retrofit on a pitch roof, and it is here that the calculations provided in the Digest are of particular relevance to the design of the roof. Non-integrated solar systems mounted on top of and parallel to pitched roofs have a clear gap between the underlying roof surface and the solar module, and there are gaps between adjacent modules to allow the module clamps to be fixed to the support rails. This means that the pressure across the modules has the potential to partly equalise to the instantaneous external pressure, resulting in a reduced net uplift load on the solar modules. This assumption is supported by full-scale and wind tunnel measurements1 on above-roof solar modules. Studies2 have shown that there can a high level of pressure equalisation across a single solar module; for larger arrays of modules the degree of pressure equalisation could be lower. The Digest provides specific details of the wind loading calculations that must be used for such installations, and further guidelines on fixing requirements, based on empirical research. The calculation requirements are different for ‘evacuated tube collectors’ – which can be installed on flat or pitched roofs. These systems will have gaps between the tubes and the roof surface and may or may not have reflectors beneath the tubes. Where the wind can blow above, below and around the tubes and manifolds there will be significant pressure equalisation. According to the Digest, such systems can be considered as a permeable skin above the roof, for the purposes of determining wind loads.

Fixing solar modules to the roof structure Where fixings are into timber rafters, particular care must be taken to ensure that the fixing screws are sized appropriately for the size of the rafters. When designing screw fixings according to BS EN 1995-11:20043 the width of the timber should be at least 12 times the www.trada.co.uk

screw diameter. This would limit the fixing screw diameter to <3mm on a typical 35mm trussed rafter used in the UK. The minimum distance between fixing screws is four or seven times the screw diameter, depending on whether parallel or perpendicular to the grain. Many solar fixing systems do not fulfil these requirements. UK building regulations do not specifically cover the issue of screw fixings into rafters, but good practice would be to comply with the BS EN 1995-1-1 limits. However, in the UK it is common practice to use 6mm or even 8mm screws to fix solar systems onto rafters; this would fall outside the BS EN 1995-1-1 applicability limits for all common sizes of trussed or cut rafters used in the UK. Load testing may be an acceptable way of satisfying building regulations to demonstrate that such systems perform satisfactorily. The National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) has published a Technical Note4 that gives further guidance on fixing solar systems to timber rafters and how to apply the results from testing. Alternatively, noggins and bearers fixed to the rafters could be used. If in doubt then the local council’s building control department should be consulted. It is also worth noting that bolt-through fixings are not recommended on tiled or slated roofs because these can transfer load to the tiles or slates, which may result in cracking or breaking. It is also difficult to provide a robust and durable method of sealing the penetrations. It is good practice to mechanically fix at least one course of tiles and slates that surround solar installations. n

“BIM is a process, an information sharing process, not dissimilar from more traditional ways of working. It is simply digitising that process to allow better automation, more efficient work flows and better record keeping.”


uilding Information Modelling (BIM) and building with engineered timber, particularly crosslaminated timber, have seen the majority of their evolution occur in the last decade. Timber structures are reaching new heights every week and BIM is increasingly being adopted in the construction industry. While BIM has the potential to drastically improve the work flow and efficiency of design and engineering, it is also a fundamental part of the design process of solid timber buildings. 3D models are vital for the engineering, coordination and fabrication of factory manufactured timber components such as CLT.

Perhaps surprisingly the biggest advocates of BIM are not the immediate beneficiaries within the construction industry, but rather the Government - UK policy makers that are setting the agenda. The Government Construction Strategy, published in May 2011, announced the intention to require collaborative 3D BIM on all its projects by April 2016. It sees BIM as a powerful tool to help achieve the goals set out in the Industrial Strategy document: Construction 2025: • To reduce initial costs of construction as well as whole life costs of built assets by 33%, • To speed up delivery time for new build and refurbished assets by 50% • To lower greenhouse gas emissions by 50% and • To improve on efficiency of imports and exports. Timber construction and CLT structures are well placed to achieve these targets. In addition to the April 2016 deadline, the UK BIM Task Group has announced a second deadline, October 2016 for ‘data validation’. By this date, all government departments are expected to have the capability to electronically validate BIM information delivered from the supply chain. >> www.trada.co.uk

Timber structures Better Information Management

What is needed: information The most important thing about BIM is the information, and there is a lot of it out there. Not all of it is helpful, and poor information, whether poor content or poorly managed content, is the biggest hurdle facing the industry. To start with, one of the crucial misconceptions about BIM is the acronym itself. BIM is not all about 3D models, software, clash detection and high end computers. Despite its acronym, BIM isn’t always about buildings. BIM is a process, an information sharing process, not dissimilar from more traditional ways of working. It is simply digitising that process to allow better automation, more efficient work flows and better record keeping. This is why some are already starting to refer to BIM as ‘Better Information Management’. The 3 levels of BIM refer to stages of adoption of BIM technologies by design teams. BIM levels define the criteria required to be deemed BIM compliant. To summarise: Level 0 BIM: Only 2D drafting is used. Level 1 BIM: A mixture of 2D and 3D CAD, where information is primarily in 2D. Different disciplines publish and maintain their own data. Level 2 BIM: Defined by higher levels of collaborative working in terms of information sharing, with all disciplines using their own 3D CAD models that can be shared using a common file format such as IFC (Industry Foundation Class). This shared information can then be combined to create a ‘federated’ BIM model which can be checked for clashes between the various disciplines. Level 3 BIM: or ‘Open BIM’ is full collaboration of all disciplines using a single, shared project model. All parties can access and update this shared model which should reduce the risk of conflicting information. To achieve this level of information sharing requires significant computing capacity as well as improved interoperability between the many software platforms used. Apart from the BIM levels there is also 4D, 5D and 6D BIM. These are further ‘dimensions’ that can be analysed using BIM: 4D integrates time, 5D is for cost and 6D is for facilities management. The Government requires all publicly procured projects to achieve Level 2 BIM by 2016. To guide design teams, all www.trada.co.uk

projects hoping to achieve this target must have a clear and complete Employers Information Requirements document (EIR). The Government’s BIM task group has stated that an EIR is essential on all public sector projects.

Managing information Clear direction from the client allows the design team and suppliers to set out their BIM Execution Plan (BEP) very simply. A pre-contract BEP allows suppliers to provide their proposed approach, capability, and competence to meet the EIR. Once the contract is awarded, the BEP is updated and provides a Master Information Delivery Plan (MIDP). The MIDP sets out when project information is to be prepared, by whom, using what protocols and procedures. The NBS BIM tool kit could be viewed as a web-based platform to assist in the creation of this suite of documents.

Exchanging information The correct exchange of information is essential to the success of BIM. This is achieved through Construction Operation Building Information Exchange (COBie). It is defined as the list of all the managed and maintained assets in the building. It could also be described as a digital O&M manual and comes in the form of a spreadsheet. 3D modelling platforms have developed tools that allow the user to generate a COBie spread sheet directly from the BIM model, saving time and improving quality and checks.

Who provides information Various members of the design team, whether architects, engineers or other main consultants can provide COBie to the BIM process. But how does the supply chain fit in? Manufacturer-specific BIM objects are one way to deliver product data to the design team, however this requires a significant level of investment, software and skills from the manufacturer. Another route for product manufacturers to provide structured BIM data is to use Product Data Sheets (PDS). The Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers’ (CIBSE) BIM group, along with BIM4M2 (Manufacturers), BIM4FitOut and other stakeholders have stepped in to support the supply chain by creating a library of Product Data Templates (PDTs) for various product types. A manufacturer can download the template and populate >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

| 101

102 |

Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

Timber structures Better Information Management

it with their products’ data to create a manufacturer specific Product Data Sheet. This data can then be imported into BIM software by designers. While CIBSE has engaged in discussions with RIBA and NBS on PDTs, currently the references within the NBS Toolkit to PDTs have little in common with the CIBSE PDTs. Further work is needed from these industry institutions to agree shared approaches and to align templates. Until then manufacturers and suppliers should research which route best suits their own, and their clients’ needs. n

Case study:

University of East Anglia Crome Court BIM may be used throughout the delivery process. It can be a key part of the design, supply and installation of solid timber structures. The following case study is intended to demonstrate how BIM provides key benefits at every stage of the RIBA Plan of Work from conception to completion and beyond. The University of East Anglia’s primary goal for the new 8- storey, 203 room halls of residence was to have an Asset Information Model (AIM) along with COBie Data to be available using Computer Aided Facility Management (CAFM) software. It is the first building on the university’s estate to implement BIM level 2. RIBA Stages 1 & 2 – Brief Preparation and Concept Design • When Eurban joined the UEA design team, preliminary IFC files from the project architects (Lsi using ArchiCAD) and engineers (Ramboll using Revit) were sent through. From these we could create our own model. Creating drawing packages in a BIM-enabled environment early on means that all changes can be made to the 3D model from which all the 2D General Arrangement drawings can be generated. This is an efficient and accurate way of working, allowing more time for options to be explored and tested. Furthermore all design options can be located in the same file until the decision is made about which to progress with.

Figure 1 BIM removes the time consuming task of creating and managing two models

acoustic). This will facilitate the design team in using analysis tools which could in turn promote the viability of using timber in terms of improved properties, leading to the procurement of more sustainable buildings. RIBA Stage 3 – Developed Design (fig 1) • Designs are rarely right first time round, changes occur throughout the design phase and work inevitably needs to be repeated. Using BIM on UEA we could link our model directly to our Engineer’s Primary FEM (Finite Element Model). This removed the time consuming task of creating and managing two models along with the additional benefit of ensuring both models corresponded accurately with each other. RIBA Stages 4 & 5 – Technical Design and Construction (fig 2) • Once the design has progressed further information can be added to the BIM to improve other aspects of procurement. 4D data including programme information can lead to huge improvements on site by eliminating conflicts and confusion. Safety by design can also be enhanced by enabling the Main Contractor to pre-plan trades and working areas against the programme. 4D BIM was not implemented on UEA however >>

Eurban’s BIM management team worked closely with the architects, contractors and other consultants combining data rich 3D models into a fully federated model hosted by Keir’s in-house platform BIMXtra. This process will be further improved when all BIM objects are assigned performance properties (thermal, fire and www.trada.co.uk

Timber structures SIPS

Seven reasons to consider SIPS Structural insulated panels (SIPs) make a neat solution for a wide range of construction projects. Lewis Taylor highlights seven reasons to consider this sustainable sandwich option.

Timber structures SIPS

“SIP buildings are capable of providing very good levels of airtightness due to the panelised construction system. They would normally incorporate a vapour control layer (vcl) onto the warm (inner) side of the external walls.”


tructural insulated panels (SIPs) are composite engineered products in a sandwich formation, where the ‘bread’ is typically sheets of orientated strand board (OSB), and the filling is a low-density, cellular foam insulating core. Bonded tightly together in controlled factory conditions forming a stressed-skin panel construction, the composite structure of these panels produces high-performance yet lightweight components with good loadbearing capabilities, suitable for use as walls and roofs for residential and commercial buildings. SIPs generally achieve BRE Green Guide ratings of A and A+ for wall and roof elements, and use of SIPs contributes to the UK Government’s strategy for sustainable construction because of their relatively low embodied energy and good thermal performance. Exova BM TRADA has recently published two Wood Information Sheets that detail the structural and design principles for building with SIPs, and the key facts for specifiers. Below is a summary of the key features that can make these panels a sustainable option. Full details and technical guidance can be found in the appropriate WISs.

1. Sourced for sustainability Under the European Timber Regulation (EUTR), all timber entering Europe must be legally sourced. In the UK most, if not all, OSB used in the manufacture of SIPs will be made from sustainably sourced softwood timber that is certified by chain of custody schemes, and originates from managed forests. A number of UK-based manufacturers of OSB use home-grown timber in the manufacture of their products, reducing transportrelated carbon emissions. (If you are unsure of the origin of a SIP product, ask for evidence to be provided.) In the factory setting where the SIPs are made, larger off-cuts of timber and board material can be used in the production of other panels or ancillary components. Sawdust from untreated timber can be used as animal bedding. Off-cuts of treated timber and board material may also be used as biomass fuel in power stations. >> www.trada.co.uk

2. Efficient insulation There are a number of reasons why use of SIPs can contribute to the energy efficiency of a building (as calculated using the Government’s ‘Standard Assessment Procedure’ for Energy Rating of Dwellings, SAP). But when it comes to keeping the heat in a building, SIPs score particularly well, offering good thermal insulation (U-values, in W/m2K) for a given wall thickness because the insulation is part of the structure. ‘Fabric First’ is a popular ethos that has grown from the German Passivhaus standard, where energy efficient buildings are created by focusing on the performance of their external envelope. Under this approach, elemental U-values and heat loss are driven down to very low levels, so the building consumes a minimal amount of energy to maintain a comfortable temperature. SIP wall panels can be of any thickness, although most manufacturers will make panels between 100mm and 250mm thick. Most new build developments will have external wall U-value targets of between 0.1 W/m2K and 0.2 W/m2K, which SIPs can easily achieve.

In addition, junctions between panels may use insulated splines, which will help to reduce heat loss due to repeat thermal bridging.

Buildings with very low fabric air leakage rates will require additional ventilation measures. Typically these will take the form of mechanical ventilation heat recovery (MVHR) units. MVHR units mechanically control the movement of air into and out of a building while recovering latent heat in the exhaust air, further contributing to energy efficiency.

3. Tightly built – by design

4. Healthy indoor environment

Another major aspect of energy efficiency is airtightness. Building regulations require that air leakage into, or out of, the building is controlled.

The OSB used in SIPs is manufactured from strands of softwood timber and adhesive resins, typically phenol formaldehyde. The off-gassing from this type of adhesive is minimal and the quantity of resin used is very low. Some OSB manufacturers use adhesives which contain no formaldehyde.

SIP buildings are capable of providing very good levels of airtightness due to the panelised construction system. They would normally incorporate a vapour control layer (vcl) onto the warm (inner) side of the external walls. This primarily controls the movement of moisture vapour through the wall, but is also an effective air barrier. The vapour control layer/air barrier can be lapped and sealed at wall junctions, at the junctions with other external elements, such as windows and doors, as well as around service penetrations of the building envelope. With SIPs it is also normal practice to seal the splines at panel junctions with either mastic or expanding foam products during erection. This, coupled with the vcl/air barrier, is the key to the excellent airtightness levels that can be achieved with SIPs. www.trada.co.uk

In the UK, structural insulated panels are available with a number of different insulation cores: expanded polystyrene (EPS), extruded polystyrene (XPS), polyisocyanate (PIR) and polyurethane (PUR). Insulation materials such as EPS and PUR do not contain formaldehyde or any CFCs, HCFCs (which deplete the Earth’s ozone layer and have high values for global warming potential, or GWP). During the manufacture of the SIPs, off-cuts of insulation material may be re-used, if large enough, or more normally are recycled by the manufacturer where the facility exists. Inevitably, some waste will go to landfill, but this is normally be far less than similar insulation waste generated on a construction site. >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

5. Noise reduction Infiltration of noise can be a significant human health problem, resulting in loss of sleep (and therefore reduced resistance to illness), annoyance and depression. In the workplace, noisy environments can cause various problems ranging from reduction in productivity to (in the most severe cases) clinical hearing problems. There are no specific requirements for the sound insulation performance of roofs or external walls within national Building Regulations. Normally the acoustic performance of a roof or external wall is only considered if there is a significant external noise source (e.g. a busy road, rail line or airport). There are, however, specific requirements for sound insulation between buildings (party walls), and within a building (internal walls and floors). SIPs, much like timber studwork, depend on mass and the continuity of plasterboard linings to provide the majority of the sound insulation. As with most lightweight building systems, if the sound insulation performance of the wall or roof needs to be improved, acoustic-rated plasterboard in multiple layers can be used to further reduce noise transmission.

6. Durable and reusable With careful on-site practice, buildings using SIPs can have long lives. As with all buildings, one of the keys to longevity is moisture control. When used for external walls, SIPs are clad and lined in a similar way to timber studwork buildings. The SIP structure itself is protected from moisture by both the cladding and the breather membrane on the outside of the panel, as well as a cavity. Care must be taken to ensure that any moisture which does penetrate the cladding does not come into contact with the SIP.

But it is the design philosophy that underpins the use of SIPs – off-site manufacture (reducing waste), well-insulated and airtight fabric – that can particularly contribute to enhanced sustainability benefits in terms of reducing carbon dioxide emissions. SIP structures are typically low in weight and so additional savings in embodied energy can be made in the design of foundations and supporting structures through the use of less concrete. Similarly, using SIPs may allow sites to be used that were not deemed suitable for typical masonry construction, for example sites with poor ground conditions. These energy efficiency measures ensure that, over the whole life of the building, the energy used in the manufacture of the SIP is likely to be more than offset by the reduction of energy used for heating (and cooling) the building. n

At the end of a building’s life, lengths of solid timber such as floor joists and internal timber stud walls, can be removed to be re-used.

7. Counting the carbon benefits The environmental benefits of building with timber are well known: the material itself has captured carbon dioxide from the atmosphere during growth; and this is then locked in to the building throughout its life and beyond, if materials are carefully reused.

Timber structures Pre-scheme design of timber

Pre-scheme design of timber Adrian Young and James Norman highlight a new resource for engineers in the early stages of timber design.


RADA is dedicated to ‘inspiring and informing best practice design, specification and use of wood in the built environment and related fields’. Ensuring that timber is considered as a serious contender at scheme stage is fundamental to realising TRADA’s goal ‘for timber to be the natural first choice material for construction’. Timber is sometimes considered too late in the process as an alternative to steel and concrete, long after some basic geometric constraints have been fixed and based on pre-conceived notions of what is the optimum layout (using steel or concrete solutions). Often this is inconsistent with timber’s performance; timber needs to be a serious option from day one. TRADA’s new book about pre-scheme timber design, to be published in mid 2016, encompasses the very earliest stages of design when engineers are asking: • What should the building be made from? • Where should columns or walls be located? • Is it a framed building or loadbearing walls? • How thick do walls and floors need to be?

Pre-scheme design: it’s make or break At university, engineers learn lots of ways to crunch numbers, which is really important, especially in the context of the Eurocodes. But that’s not much help when you have to knock up a scheme for a complete building by the end of the day! Especially if you’re not that au fait with the nuances of timber design. The intention of TRADA’s pre-scheme design book is to help designers make the right decisions early on in the design process. It includes many illustrations to simplify use, with symbols that indicate relative performance against various criteria. While it is hoped that the book will be helpful for students and construction professionals in general, the primary audience is structural engineers who have designed buildings of steel and concrete but have not acquired significant experience in timber. www.trada.co.uk

It is not usually practical to do pre-scheme design from first principles. Utilising both design data and the experience of seasoned timber designers from a variety of practices, the book aims to raise the engineer’s awareness of structural issues which they may not consider at early scheme design stage for other materials. James Norman of the University of Bristol, an experienced designer of timber buildings (some RIBA award winners), has taken up the challenge of helping us to prepare a rigorous pre-scheme design resource, capturing the accumulated experience of many leading TRADA members. Along the way, he has taken advice from some of the timber engineering world’s most enthusiastic and skilled engineers: Simon Smith of Smith Wallwork; Andrew Wylie, Jon Shanks and Graham Clarke of Buro Happold; Ross Smith of Ramboll; Kim Collins of Integral Engineering Design and Ralph Pelly of Rise Structures.

Timber pre-scheme design is presented in five stages: 1. Summarising the key considerations of timber design – particularly useful for the graduate or the engineer experienced in steel and concrete design but not timber. 2. Presenting the common framing options that work with timber – including some high-rise solutions which, until recently, were not even thought to be possible. 3. Describing the range of solid and engineered timber products that broaden timber’s appeal to architects, engineers, clients and building users. 4. Guiding the initial sizing of elements, thus enabling the engineer to offer practical schemes in timber with parameters for spans, heights and depths so that the architect can settle on a workable grid and profile for the structure. 5. Highlighting the issues that influence both initial and whole-life costs. >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

What are the main options for framing? We describe the three basic types: • loadbearing – typically cellular structures • framed – suitable for more open-plan schemes • hybrid – a mixture of loadbearing and framed.

Laminated veneer lumber (LVL)

What are the main options for ensuring stability? Typically, you will encounter four types: • stressed skin racking panels • solid timber panels • braced bays • moment frames.

Ribbed slabs – where the floor and joists act together compositely

The book describes each, emphasising their level of complexity.

What timber products are at your disposal? Timber has perhaps more structural product types than any other building materials. The book illustrates and describes the main uses for these products, as shown below:

Sawn (solid) timber


Cassette panels – similar to ribbed slabs but with composite action with both faces

Unilam – slabs made of joists connected together side by side

Cross-laminated timber (CLT) – solid timber panels with significant strength in both directions

Flitch beams – paired timbers with steel plates in-between Glued laminated timber (glulam)

How does each product type perform?

What will it cost?

Naturally, every product has it strengths and weaknesses, and each is useful in particular situations.

Finally, to help the quantity surveyor make a fair assessment of timber’s potential, the book explains how the cost of a timber structure is influenced by several factors:

The chapter on load and span tables provides guidance in the form of tables and charts for establishing the all-important preliminary sizes to get you started on floor, roof and wall structures, with all the products mentioned above except the ribbed slabs, cassettes and roof trusses. The following example of sawn timber floors shows how the book enables the engineer to assess quickly how far a component will span for various depths.

• Programme – timber might not always be the cheapest frame, but it is frequently the fastest to build, leading to the lowest overall cost. • Lightness – this can mean spending less on foundations. • Architectural finish – timber may itself be an acceptable finish internally, which can save on further treatments, thus eliminating a separate cost item. • Exchange rate – be sure that you know the source of materials and understand the impact of fluctuating exchange rates. • Method and installation costs – although greater care is required to handle and install a timber structure, the process (especially using lightweight tools) offers many benefits in urban sites where you’ll want to avoid disturbing neighbours. The potential for pre-fabrication can also influence installation cost. • Fire treatment – although wood is a combustible material, the heavier timber products offer significant fire protection, without supplementary treatments, because the charring of the timber surface protects the intact core.

What else do engineers (and architects) need to know about a structural scheme? As well as the crucial geometric considerations (how far will it span, how tall will it reach, how deep would it be) we have devised a system of symbols so you can see at a glance the key performance indicators for various parameters: • types of buildings such as dwellings, low rise and high rise • fire rating • acoustic rating • construction method • difficulty of calculations • lead time.

Although focused on pre-scheme design, there is a chapter of guidance about ‘what next’ – a springboard into the detail design. Better stop there, we’ve practically done it all for you! TRADA will update you about this new resource when it is imminent if you are registered to receive its e-newsletters, or alternatively contact publications@trada.co.uk for details. n

Protection Preservative treatment

WPA campaigns for CPR compliance in the fire retardants sector Gordon Ewbank, chairman of the WPA fire protection committee, explains why the WPA is asking the UK government to get tough on the use of products that make unfounded fire protection claims.

Protection Preservative treatment

“It is absolutely essential that fitness for purpose is verified prior to the use of any coating purporting to offer extensive fire protection performance. That’s because canned products are intended to be brush-or spray-applied on a building site or are superficially applied with little or no factory control.”


ire protection is a critical safety issue under the Construction Products Regulations (CPR) and the emerging use of site-applied coatings as opposed to factory controlled impregnation of fire retardants is a significant challenge and concern for the timber industry.

These site-applied coatings products have the potential to risk endangering lives and the reputation of wood as a viable and safe construction material. They also undermine the profitability and consequent investment of CPR-compliant companies. The Wood Protection Association (WPA) has mounted a campaign for enforcement action to be taken on products that contravene the law under CPR.

Putting the safety of people first When building regulations call for the fire protection of wood, the safety of those who will use the structure is the overriding objective. There can be no short cut to ensuring wood gets the right fire retardant (FR) treatment. Impregnation of an FR treatment under quality-assured factory-controlled conditions is the tried and tested approach. Wood and panel products impregnated prior to installation have a track record of performance spanning several decades. Confidence in the fire performance of FR products used in impregnation processes is underpinned by a substantial body of test data, third-party accreditation and CE Mark Declarations of Performance. In recent years, site-applied coatings have appeared in the UK with ‘Declarations of Performance’ (DoP), CE Mark Construction Products Regulations (CPR) compliance claims and application choices that make them appear an attractive alternative to impregnation processes. However, it is absolutely essential that fitness for purpose is verified prior to the use of any coating purporting to offer extensive fire protection performance. That’s because canned products are intended to be brush-or spray-applied on a building site or are superficially applied with little or >> www.trada.co.uk

no factory control. Often there is no real external verification of quality control or evidence of fire performance specific to the type, size and installation configuration of the timber elements for which long-term fire protection is required.

treatment for wood is CPR compliant or has been given a document purporting to be a DoP for such a product.

Beware ‘Declarations of Performance’ claimed by a coating

In the UK, enforcement of compliance with the EU Construction Products Regulations is the responsibility of Trading Standards. Cambridge Trading Standards (CTS) serves as the UK’s Primary Authority on CPR and is responsible for setting policy and coordinating enforcement activity with other trading standards offices.

Incorrect documentation is a contravention of CE Marking/CPR requirements and illegal. Although a can of site-applied solution could be CE marked and have a DoP, this information would be in conjunction with a European Technical Assessment (ETA) written to ETAG 028, and is not the same as a DoP written to a Harmonised product standard (like EN 13986). Therefore, the DoP and ETA should be supported by EN 13501-1 evidence. Even then, it is vital to ensure that the coating is applied very carefully on site. (There are certification schemes for the application of FRs on site.) The WPA would like to hear from anyone who has been told that a canned coating placed on the market as a fire retardant

CPR enforcement in the UK

The WPA’s call for closer scrutiny of coatings that claim extensive fire protection performance was endorsed in August 2015 by the Construction Products Association (CPA). This endorsement has strengthened the need for action resulting in the development of a partnership arrangement between WPA and CTS. This arrangement is intended to underpin trading standards enforcement of CPR compliance by: • giving the Cambridge enforcement resource access to WPA knowledge of the wood products sector and market intelligence • supporting enforcement teams with technical expertise in FR enhancement technologies for wood based construction materials • coordinating input from major independent technical authorities on fire protection and help facilitate fire testing where appropriate. As an EU Member State, the UK has an excellent track record in the implementation of EU Directives, but when it comes to enforcement action the resources to do so appear to be thin on the ground. The WPA in alliance with CPA and other timber trade bodies is lobbying UK government to make funding available, possibly in conjunction with industry, to police CPR compliance.

Guidance for specifiers is an important part of the process Helping specifiers to choose the right fire retardant treatment or manufactured FR sheet materials is an increasingly important WPA activity. Four main initiatives underpin this role: 1. The WPA Fire Retardant Specification Manual 2. The WPA Benchmark quality scheme for FR treatments 3. The WPA Guide to CE marking 4. The WPA FR specifiers help desk.

is called up by organisations such as NHBC and NBS. The manual includes lists of WPA-approved FR products and processors and a step-by-step checklist to making the right specification choice. The WPA Benchmark FR scheme provides independent, third-party audit and approval of FR products and associated treatment processes to provide specifiers and users of treated material with further confidence of a job well done. WPA also operates the quality scheme that supports the Structural Timber Association’s FR Build scheme for the fire protection of wood used in during the construction of commercial timber frame buildings. The WPA Guide to CE Marking for product manufacturers spells out the requirements for CE marking and on how to comply with the CPR. It also helps WPA to underpin our challenge to those FR products that make claims that cannot be substantiated. Earlier in 2015 WPA initiated a help-desk service for architects who are seeking generic guidance on the fire protection of wood and wood based panel products. Access to this service is by referral from WPA members. From this work, it has become clear that the interpretation of EN 13501-1 Fire Classification Reports is the key issue faced by specifiers: • It can be a costly and potentially fatal error to assume a certificate for one species, profile and installation design is transferable to another species, profile and installation design.

implementation of CPR to date, supports the WPA’s industry specific case for enforcement action. It states: Industry perceives that more needs to be done in order for market surveillance authorities to fulfil their obligations and properly enforce the CPR. Industry stakeholders thus believe that the anticipated benefits of market surveillance (in terms of increased compliance with the CPR, reduction in products posing a risk to health & safety, increased credibility of the CPR and improved competitiveness for compliant operators) have not yet been achieved. It can be concluded that there is a need for more visible market surveillance and enforcement action across the EU. The report also highlights two possible solutions: ‘Increase the communication between market surveillance authorities and industry stakeholders’ and introduce a ‘more efficient prioritisation and organisation of market surveillance activities’. These are two of the areas where specific progress can be made through the WPA’s innovative partnership with the CPR Primary Authority in Cambridge. WPA believes that, through the enforcement of high fire performance standards, the long-term integrity of buildings and the safety of those who use them on a daily basis can be ensured. n

About the author

Where there is interest in using a surface coating, WPA urges specifiers to make absolutely certain (not least for professional liability reasons) that the coating they intend to specify has a EN 13501-1 Fire Classification Report from a Notified Body directly relevant to Building Regulations’ requirements for their application. Designers and specifiers also need to be aware that the fire performance claimed by a coating depends heavily on recommended application rates and/or film thicknesses being achieved consistently. This will always be a challenge when a solution is applied by brush or spray on site to insitu vertical or overhead surfaces such as beams, profiled components, cladding and ceiling surfaces.

Protection Fire

Avoiding construction fires and reducing risks The fire safety of finished buildings is amply covered in design codes and regulations, but less often discussed is fire safety in relation to the construction phase. Martin Milner answers some frequently asked questions to help reduce the risk of on-site fires.


ires occur every day and some have devastating and fatal impacts to human life. Ensuring fire safety in the design of buildings is a significant part of the process from concept to completion of a project. The design regulations and codes used by the construction industry focus on the completed building and the process is no different when considering fire safety for the choice of materials and layouts. However, these regulatory design controls are primarily aimed at a finished and occupied building, so are less likely to cover fire safety in a situation when a building is under construction. The construction phase is such that the building is undergoing constant change and this, together with the varying combinations of combustible materials and plant, can create conditions for a significant fire to spread across the site – something that is not covered in the fire safety design of the completed building. Fires during the construction process can occur in all forms of structures as combustible materials are introduced to the building. The Structural Timber Association (STA) has therefore developed a range of guidance documents to help the industry avoiding fires and mitigate risks for structural timber buildings during the construction process.

What are the causes of fire during the construction phase? Fires can start on any construction site no matter how big, small, simple or complex a building project. These fires can start for a number of causes as noted in Figure 1. To reduce the risk of fire occurring, consideration of deliberate acts of ignition and accidental causes is required. >>

Figure 1: Causes of ignition

Do the building regulations or technical standards address buildings during construction? The building regulations or technical standards address the minimum performance levels of the completed building when in use and do not address the construction phase which is an incomplete building. Although the building control documents provide principles for fire safety these are not necessarily relevant to a construction site and differences can be significant. In developing the “during construction” guidance the STA reviewed the objectives of Building Control and also the laws relating to fire safety in buildings.

CDM regulations A point to note under CDM regulations is that where a project is being run under a design and build contract and the client’s team has not chosen the material type and construction method then the principal designer role in respect to the construction fire safety measures are being led within the design and build company who will also cover the principal contractor role. The contract between the client and design and build contractor can be such that the principal designer role is taken on by the contractor.

The law • The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO) covers general fire safety in England and Wales. • In Scotland, requirements on general fire safety are covered in Part 3 of the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005, supported by the Fire Safety (Scotland) Regulations 2006. • In the majority of premises, local fire and rescue authorities are responsible for enforcing this fire safety legislation. • HSE has enforcement responsibility on construction sites where the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM) 2015 and the RRO/Fire Scotland regulations are considered.

Should the design team consider the effect of fire during the construction phase? Within the CDM regulations 2015 there are clear client and designer duties to consider the effects of a fire that could occur (regardless of the cause) during the construction phase. The CDM regulations clearly make it the responsibility of the client to appoint knowledgeable parties to the project who can advise, but ultimately, the responsibility rests with the client. There are a number of safety responsibilities which fall under the principal contractor’s construction phase duties, but fire safety starts with the choice of material and its application and this responsibility falls under the direction of the design team, led by the principal designer, who has ultimate responsibility to advise the client of actions to take (e.g. that off the site risk mitigation measures will be required that shall be included in the tender documents either as outline proposals for the contractor to complete or a full risk mitigation measures to price in the tender). Table 1 provides a brief breakdown of the areas of fire safety responsibility for the various measures needed. www.trada.co.uk

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has issued guidance on construction fire safety and the insurance industry has issued policy compliance procedures for sites. The CDM, HSE and insurance compliance is not specific to timber structures, and covers all materials. The responsibility for parties involved in fire safety during construction is provided in Table 1. Fire safety planning has similar objectives for buildings in construction as they are for complete buildings. The primary objective to all fire planning is for life safety and secondly >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

Structural timber in the construction process Timber as a material has differing degrees of ignitability depending on the density, size and ventilation available. Timber as a raw material will provide growth of fire across its surface, so has a low reaction to fire classification. Walls and floors will only have fire resistance due to charring if the full element is solid timber; otherwise the basic timber structure has no inherent fire resistance.

Standard text books and guidance do not cover the effect of a fire on exposed incomplete structures. The STA, as part of the Fire Sector Federation, has a duty of care to provide information to the industry to provide designers and contractors with appropriate information to build safely and sustainably using structural timber. The STA has therefore produced a suite of documents that address the procedures and options for structural timber during the construction process that includes risk mitigation and duties of the persons involved in the processes. The STA guidance covers the impact of fire outside of construction sites boundary (referred to as ‘off the site’) and on the impact or stopping a fire within the site boundary (referred to as ‘on the site’).

STA: Site Safe strategy and policy

Keep up to date

The STA’s Site Safe strategy includes advice and documents to provide the industry with knowledge and information on how to procure and construct ‘fire safe’ buildings.

The use of structural timber in a building project has been proven to be no less of a risk than other materials providing the correct risk mitigation and reviews are undertaken. The construction industry is in a continuous cycle of improvement, and the fire safety guidance from the STA is one example of the industry reacting and improving its processes. The guidance is available from the STA website and checks should be made regularly, to ensure that the most recent versions are being used. n

The current advice relates to building projects with a total floor area of 600m2 or over. The advice given is suitable for buildings below 600m2, but single house developments should be assessed on the scale of the house and location of fire risks, with the principles of this guidance used. The STA intends to issue further updates on the guidance during 2016. All the relevant documents are available from the STA website, and includes the Site Safe member’s policy, which is a safeguard for clients to ensure that the right documents are being processed and that coordination with the fire service is achieved. Insurance companies are recognising the benefits of the STA Site Safe policy which is third-party audited by BM TRADA and covers the key elements to comply with the insurance industry requirements for construction sites and fire risk mitigation.

Materials Modified woods

“Modified woods have become well established in the European market. In October 2015 the 8th European Conference on Wood Modification included presentations on the commercialisation of modified woods, modification techniques and the evaluation of modified wood properties.”


ood Information Sheet 2/3-63: Modified wood products is due for its third revision in five years. This high frequency of revision reflects the increasing range modified woods coming to market and the need to make specifiers aware of their properties and suitability for different end uses.

The WIS was first published in February 2010; its aim being to help specifiers better understand what modified wood products are, learn something of their properties and show how these differ from those of unmodified wood. Tables included in the WIS showed the modified wood products available in the UK, their end uses and likely performance. Modified woods have become well established in the European market. In October 2015 the 8th European Conference on Wood Modification included presentations on the commercialisation of modified woods, modification techniques and the evaluation of modified wood properties. A number of European standards are being revised to include methods for selection, pre-conditioning and testing of modified wood products. In addition, new products have come to market since the last revision of the WIS (in 2013), and it is important that specifiers be kept up to date, hence a revision is likely in the near future. This article summarises some of the likely revisions to this WIS.

It has been used on many projects, not only in Europe but also in North and South America, India, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. These projects range from exterior joinery and decking applications to exterior furniture and boat construction. The material received two new certifications in 2015, both of which involve bi-annual factory audits encompassing a review of quality control documentation and random sampling and testing by the certification bodies to ensure the consistency of quality. >> www.trada.co.uk

These certification schemes include the French FCBA Control Convention for material properties, which presents test data on the mechanical and physical properties of Accoya® together with data on its stability, water uptake and thermal conductivity. Durability testing showed high resistance against wood destroying fungi, termites and the wood boring beetle Hylotrupes. Accoya® was also found to meet the requirements of the US ICC ESR Certification scheme for use in UC3A (exterior coated millwork, siding and trim), UC3B (decking, sill plates, fence rails, trellises and gazebos) and UC4A (deck joists, beams, retaining walls and freshwater jetties). This scheme recognises Accoya® as being resistant to both termites and fungi. Long-term field test data on the performance of Accoya® from sites in Europe, New Zealand, Florida, Japan, Thailand and Costa Rica is now available and show continuing high levels of resistance against wood destroying fungi and insects.

Medite® Tricoya® Extreme was first included in the 2013 WIS. It is the only medium-density fibreboard (MDF) manufactured using acetylated wood fibre. Being bonded using pMDI resin means that this material does not emit free formaldehyde; and at the same time it has outstanding dimensional stability and durability. It offers the same design and machining characteristics of MDF, and is available as large sheets that can be easily profiled to give a good finish. Its exceptional dimensional stability provides improved coatings performance, making it an ideal choice for exterior roofline applications (facias and soffits), cladding and facade panels. Medite® Tricoya® Extreme carries a performance warranty of up to 50 years. Kebony® focuses on the softwoods Scots pine, radiata pine and southern yellow pine. These are available both as clear and character grade the later containing knots which appeal to some clients. Kebony® continues to be used on an increasing number of exterior projects where durability and dimensional stability are required. It is also being used for interior design. Kebony® has been recognised by VFF (German Association of Windows and Facades) as suitable for window joinery. Thermowood® (from MetsäWood) remains the most widely distributed thermally modified timber in the UK. Sold mainly for decking and cladding applications, its properties and profile range have made it a popular choice for exterior cladding in the UK. The manufacturer, MetsäWood, provide guidance on the installation of vertical and horizontal Thermowood® cladding in the form of videos which include guidance on fixing and detailing to accommodate movement, reduce risk of wetting and to promote drainage and drying down. Entries for Thermowood® cladding profiles are freely available for specifiers through the BIMstore, which creates and distributes BIM content for use in building design.

Thermally modified timbers Most of the modified wood products that are new to the UK market are thermally modified timbers (TMT). All those set out below will be included in the revised WIS for the first time.

can be supplied in clear lengths and FSC or PEFC Certified. EcoChoice also supplies Aegis wood – a timber modified using a silica-based impregnation technology which improves mechanical properties, durability and reaction to fire. DuraWood™ is thermally modified ayous supplied through Timber Link International. Laboratory testing has established that this modified product is durable against wood destroying fungi and testing has found it to be stable in terms of movement. Available in clear lengths, this modified wood is being marketed for exterior applications such as cladding. Natural Cladding®, available through RUSSWOOD, is a low-density, thermally modified tropical hardwood which is both durable against wood destroying fungi and stable. It is particularly suitable for cladding applications where clear faces are required. Vastern Timber is launching its range of thermally modified British grown timbers in 2016 under the product name Brimstone. The product originated from a collaborative project funded in part by Timber Strategies which included Vastern Timber, Tyler Hardwoods, Grown in Britain, BRE and representatives from the construction industry.

and Brimstone sycamore (E). The letter E denotes the timber as being suitable for external applications. Brimstone (E) for all species will initially be marketed for cladding with only ash also sold for decking. Aesthetically, all of the Brimstone species will be relatively free of knots (equivalent to BS1186-3 Class 1, similar to No. 2 clear, and better than Western red cedar) providing an alternative to the more knotty thermally modified softwoods. n

Improving the home-grown timber supply chain Dougal Driver explains how Grown in Britain is playing a crucial role in raising public and industry awareness of the many benefits of home-grown timber.

“The Grown in Britain licensing scheme has been designed to increase visibility of home grown timber by licensing timber from woodlands and timber products that are grown in the UK.”


am sure that I am not the only person who has visited the TRADA head office in the heart of the Chilterns’ beech woods and thought: “If only I had a similar view from my office window”. Those beautiful beech woods remind me of the common purpose shared by my organisation, Grown in Britain, and TRADA: to raise awareness of the many benefits of working with wood. But the two organisations work in different ways to achieve these ends. In the case of Grown in Britain, as the name suggests, our particular focus is on home-grown timber and therefore supporting the nations country’s woodlands and forests and our rural economy. The UK timber industry produced a record 12 million tonnes of wood in 2014, increasing wood production by a third since 2008. But with 80 per cent of our timber still imported and 42 per cent of our woods unmanaged, the environmental and economic imperative to ‘buy British’ is strong. Grown in Britain is approaching its fifth year in operation, so now is an ideal time to reflect on where we came from, what we have achieved so far, and where we are going next.

Our origins In 2011 an independent panel, chaired by the Bishop of Liverpool, presented a report to the UK government with recommendations on the future direction of forestry and woodland policy in England. Recommendation 18 established the need for an industry-led, governmentbacked ‘Wood Industry Action Plan’ that could drive lasting change in the sector. The plan that emerged resulted in the creation of Grown in Britain – a not-for-profit, industry-led, government-backed organisation – as a vehicle for promoting and increasing British timber production and supply, and with the specific remit to deliver several key aspects of the ‘Government Forestry and Woodlands Policy Statement’ (published in January 2013). >> www.trada.co.uk

Once licensed within the scheme, growers and processors can use the Grown in Britain label on their products, and to help promote British timber within their supply chains. The licensing process has been made as simple as possible, but it is also robust to protect the brand: • For a forest or wood wishing to join the list, all we need to see is the UK Forestry Standard management plan number or a PEFC™/ FSC® certificate. A recent applicant said it was the simplest process he had gone through. • For saw mills and other processors, we need to be sure that what is branded as Grown in Britain is grown in Britain, and so an independent audit is required to ensure that this is achieved. The value of the brand has quickly proven itself, so much so that there have been a few ‘policing issues’ where the logo has been used where a licence has not been applied for, let alone granted. Grown in Britain deals with these issues appropriately when we become aware of them.

Making our mark on British timber The ultimate success of Grown in Britain relies upon land owners, processors and wood users buying into the geographical licensing process created by Grown in Britain, which assures that wood and timber products are from UK sources. The Grown in Britain licensing scheme has been designed to increase visibility of home grown timber by licensing timber from woodlands and timber products that are grown in the UK. The licensing process provides assurance that the timber has been grown in the UK in accordance with the UK Government Timber Procurement Policy, and fully recognises environmental certification by FSC® or PEFC™.1 The Grown in Britain scheme covers all types of wood – including softwood, hardwoods and panel products – just as long as it was grown in the UK.

Research conducted by Grown in Britain found that 92% of large contractors support the use of more home-grown timber and this, combined with greater demand from retailers and the public sector, led us to develop a database for companies wanting to source material that carries the Grown in Britain licence. (This ‘demand list’, along with a list of GiB licensed products, is available on request from enquiries@growninbritain.org)

Working with government and industry partners The public sector has a big role to play in boosting the use of homegrown timber and Grown in Britain has worked hard with the UK government to improve its Timber Procurement Policy - putting homegrown timber on an equal footing with equivalent imported materials. However, changing the rules is never enough. Attitudes and habits tend to drive procurement decisions. We were delighted that, at an event during the 2015 Grown in Britain Week, the Secretary of State for Defra, the Hon Liz Truss, accept our request that her department examine how it procures home-grown timber in any projects under its influence. She also confirmed that she will do all she can to boost the procurement of UK wood across government. This links neatly to our existing technical work with the Forestry Commission, Environment Agency and other public authorities to seek home-grown timber substitutes for tropical and other imported timbers that find their way unnecessarily into too many public buildings and renovations. We also understand the need to build ‘home grown’ into the systems and decisions that go on behind the supply chain. To this end we have developed an excellent and collaborative partnership >>

with the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS). Companies under the CCS can now use their support of Grown in Britain and our licensed products as evidence in the CCS best practice scoring system. Grown in Britain is also an integral part of their advice to members that aim to rate highly for ‘social value’ within the scheme – which is of growing importance to public and private clients.

This is one of Grown in Britain’s key functions and so we have developed very good relationships with TV, radio, print or social media and we have featured on BBC Breakfast, Farming Today and even Homes Beautiful. Our message is straightforward: celebrate forests and woods being created and managed, buy British and look for the Grown in Britain logo.

Grown in Britain licensed products are also included in several sustainable procurement policies of leading main contractors and clients and are being requested on pre-qualification questionnaires, such as the one issued by Construction Line to its significant membership base.

Another aspect of this work is to develop consumer-led demand for home-grown timber products. A good example of this work is the thermal modification project with suppliers Vastern Timber and Tyler hardwoods, and research partners.

Research and development At the moment, the UK relies on high levels of imported timber, but there are more than 30 million tonnes of timber in unmanaged woodlands throughout the UK, that could be a more sustainable and environmentally friendly solution to the nation’s timber requirements. A Grown in Britain consortium, led by English Woodlands Timber, was awarded funding by the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, in 2015 for a project to explore how hardwood supply chains in the construction sector could be improved. The project will have five main work streams: • Market research to establish the timber species and section sizes being purchased by the UK construction industry, and also to identify what timber is available in UK woodlands to match this; • Timber stock funding options that will look to increase roundwood and sawn timber stocks without imposing additional risks on the supply chain; • A timber supply ‘hub’ that will be able to locate available timber in independent saw mills around the UK; • Material efficiencies, looking at how sawn wood yields could be improved; • Industry engagement, to galvanise the full support of the UK timber industry.

Thermal modification involves using intense heat (180–200 degrees Celsius) and steam to change the structural properties of wood. The process ‘cooks’ the sugars and resins out of the wood, leaving nothing for mould, fungus and bacteria to feed on, resulting in significantly higher levels of durability than nonmodified timber. This will enable consumers to use British hardwood species such as Sycamore and Ash (which have been made more durable by super-heat treatment) instead of products such as thermally treated Tulip Wood from north America.

A market crying out for change Looking ahead, the market tells us that consumers want the Grown in Britain trademark of sustainable, legal and homegrown on their timber and wood. Our next job is to secure the support of the whole supply chain to promote their use of British timber, not just because it’s ‘a good thing’ but because it makes commercial sense to back Britain, to get a licence and feed a market that is crying out for more and support the nation’s forests and woodlands. n

About the author

The project, which will run until the autumn of 2016, includes BRE, the Forestry Commission, forest and wood charity the Sylva Foundation, building contractor Willmott Dixon, and representatives of the timber and merchant sector.

Working with the public Market research tells us that many people outside the timber industry connect to products they can see and touch. Our challenge is therefore to deepen the connection between the industry and the public – often by campaigns linking the people with the items they produce and the woodlands where the timber is sourced. www.trada.co.uk

Materials CE Marking

CE marking: a primer for the timber industry The EU Construction Products Regulation (CPR) introduced new obligations and responsibilities for manufacturers, importers and distributors of construction products. Niresh Somlie explains the basics, as they apply to the timber industry.


s of 1 July 2013, CE marking of construction products covered by harmonised European Standards (hENs) became mandatory in all EU Member States.

The EU Construction Products Regulation (No. 305/2011) (CPR) lays down the harmonised conditions for the sale and supply of construction products and is directly applicable into UK law. It is therefore essential that all parties in the construction products supply chain understand their legal obligations in order to comply. The four main provisions of the CPR are: 1. A system of harmonised technical specifications 2. An agreed system of assessment and verification of constancy of performance 3. A framework of Notified Bodies 4. CE marking a product. The CPR (Annex I) defines seven basic works requirements (BWRs) for a construction product, which are: 1. Mechanical resistance and stability 2. Safety in case of fire 3. Hygiene, health and the environment 4. Safety and accessibility in use 5. Protection against noise 6. Energy economy and heat retention 7. Sustainable use of natural resources. Harmonised technical specifications include Harmonised European Standards (hENs), and European Assessment Documents (EADs). These technical specifications provide assessment and verification methods for the performance of construction products. Table 1 (overleaf) shows a list of timber products for which there are harmonised standards.

Harmonised European Standards There are currently over 400 hENs covering a wide range of construction products. The hENs are the key documents for: www.trada.co.uk

• manufacturers – when declaring the performance of the product • authorities – when specifying requirements for construction products in regulations, specifications, public procurement documents and so on • specifiers and designers (e.g. architects, engineers, builders) – when choosing construction products. For any product, the information/requirements relating to the above factors can be found in Annex ZA of the specific hEN. This annex comprises three parts, which provide: • the performance characteristics and related test/assessment method/s (ZA.1) • the procedure for conformity assessment, i.e. tasks required of the manufacturer and notified body (ZA.2) • the process for CE marking and application of the CE Mark (ZA.3).

European Assessment Documents EADs are produced for those construction products that are not covered, or not fully covered, by a hEN. An EAD provides the basis for which a European Technical Assessment (ETA) can be written and issued. A list of published EADs can be found in the Official Journal of the European Union.

How will CPR affect my trade area? I am a manufacturer... Since 1 July 2013 manufacturers of construction products which falls within the scope of an hEN are required, when placing the product on the market, to: 1. Draw up a Declaration of Performance (DoP) for that product. 2. Apply the CE mark. All the information contained within the DoP should comply with the requirements/criteria specified by the applicable hEN. The DoP is a legal declaration made by the manufacturer to show >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

that the product was manufactured following the requirements of the hEN; it also provides information about the essential characteristics of each product. By drawing up the DoP, the manufacturer assumes full responsibility for the conformity of the construction product with the hEN and declared performance. The application of the CE mark follows the DoP and effectively attests that the manufacturer followed all the applicable procedures for manufacturer of the product, drawing up the DoP and that, consequently, the DoP is accurate and reliable. www.trada.co.uk

The obligations on manufacturers are defined in the CPR and failure to comply with any provision of the CPR will amount to a breach of the Regulation and will result in formal action by the relevant enforcement authority.

I am an importer... The CPR has introduced a ‘chain of custody’ approach for construction products placed on the European market, resulting in a greater legal responsibility for importers. >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

| 155

Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

Materials CE Marking

As part of their obligations, importers must ensure: 1. that the assessment and the verification of constancy of performance has been carried out by the manufacturer 2. that the manufacturer has drawn up the technical documentation referred to in CPR Article 11(1) and the DoP referred to in CPR Articles 4 and 6 3. that the product bears the CE marking 4. that their (i.e. the importer’s) details appear on the product, packaging or accompanying documentation 5. that instructions and safety information is made available with the product in a language determined by the Member State concerned 6. that products are stored or transported in a manner that does not jeopardise the integrity of the product in relation to its conformity with the DoP 7. that they carry out monitoring of the product on the market by means of sample testing, investigation of complaints and taking corrective action when the product does not comply with the declared performance 8. that they co-operate with requests from national regulatory authorities. An importer shall be considered a ‘manufacturer’ and will be subject to the obligations of a manufacturer when the importer places a product on the market under their company name or trademark, or modifies a construction product already placed on the market in such a way that conformity with the declaration of performance may be affected.

2. Ensure the manufacturer/distributor has complied to the relevant CPR Articles (see above). 3. Take corrective action when the product does not comply with the declared performance. A Distributor is considered a ‘manufacturer’ and is therefore subject to the obligations of a manufacturer when/if the distributor places a product on the market under the company name or trademark or modifies a construction product already placed on the market in such a way that conformity with the DoP may be affected. For distributors, as with manufacturers and importers, failure to comply will be a breach of the CPR and will result in prosecution.

I am an architect, designer or builder... The transition to hENs represents a change for the construction industry. Traditionally, national product standards were very prescriptive in relation to product performance and characteristics. And performance characteristics and the way in which the product is tested for these characteristics differed in each national standard. hENs provide harmonised testing methods, declaration methods and conformity assessment rules. They also allow Member States to define their own minimum requirements in addition to the requirements given in the hEN. Architects, specifiers, designers and builders should: 1. When drawing up specifications, refer to the harmonised technical specifications, specifically to the requirements of individual product characteristics. >>

The CPR clearly sets out the responsibilities of importers, so failure to comply will be a breach of the Regulation and will result in prosecution.

I am a distributor... Distributors have the same responsibilities as manufacturers and importers. In addition, to comply with the CPR, distributors must ensure: 1. before making a construction product available on the market, that the product ( where required) bears the CE marking and is accompanied by the documents required by CPR www.trada.co.uk

3. Check National Annexes or Standard Recommendations which give guidance on appropriate minimum performance levels for specific intended uses of the product in the Member State concerned.

1. Products covered by an hEN (EN 13986; EN 14081)

4. Ensure compliance with the Building Regulations in the Member State concerned.

Notified Bodies A Notified Body in the EU is an organisation that has been notified in their Member State, normally via an Accreditation Body (UKAS in the UK). The role of a Notified Body is to verify if the product meets the applicable requirements. Therefore, depending on the Directive, Regulation or Harmonised Standard, Notified Bodies can carry out the following tasks: • product certification (Notified Certification Body) • factory production control certification (Notified Certification Body) • determination of the product type on the basis of testing (Notified Testing Body). The involvement of a Notified Body in the conformity assessment procedure depends on the type of product, the harmonised standard and the Attestation and Verification of Constancy of Performance (AVCP) level. The AVCP level and tasks of the manufacturer and Notified Body relating to this AVCP level is stated in Annex ZA of the relevant hEN.

Technical Assessment Bodies Under the CPR, for a construction product that is not covered or not fully covered by an hEN CE marking is an option, not a legal obligation. The manufacturer of such products can, however, apply for a European Technical Assessment (ETA) which will allow CE marking of the product. ETAs are based on European Assessment Documents (EADs) and both are prepared and issued by Technical Assessment Bodies (TABs).


The CPR generally envisages three main groups of products:

2. Products not fully covered by an hEN, for example where an hEN exists but for at least one essential characteristic: • The method of assessment is inappropriate • There is no assessment method 3. Products which do not fall within the scope of an hEN (I-Joists, - which can be CE - marked via the voluntary ETA Route). For products in Group 1, a DoP, as set out in the appropriate hEN/CPR, and consequent CE marking is required. For Group 2 and 3 products, a manufacturer can choose the way in which they produce the information contained in their DoP documentation: • Declare the performance of the product in accordance with a European Technical Assessment (ETA) issued by a Technical Assessment Body (TAB) against a European Assessment Document (EAD). CE marking via an ETA is completely voluntary, but becomes mandatory once an ETA is issued. • Declare performance by means of Independent Third Party Certification such as the BM TRADA Q-Mark. n

Focus on flooring: Tŷ Unnos and Welsh timber The Tŷ Unnos development on the Royal Welsh Agricultural Showground in Llanelwedd, Powys, showcases a number of timber flooring options, as Tabitha Binding of Coed Cymru explains.


he name Tŷ Unnos, which means ‘a house in one night’ owes its origins to the tradition of erecting a house overnight on vacant land and claiming it as a home. This was common practice in Wales until the end of the 19th Century. Back in 2006, a feasibility study looked at the possibility of building sustainable, affordable energy efficient homes using home-grown Sitka spruce, the most readily available softwood resource in Wales. Simple substitution of imported material commonly used for timber frame systems was not deemed possible, due to the greater stability and superior strength of slow grown softwoods available from drier, cooler climates. The study therefore proposed a radical departure from current practice in the form of a whole house construction system using engineered home-grown timber components.

The proposals attracted great interest from all parts of the industry and a multi-disciplinary team of experts formed to prototype, test and develop the Tŷ Unnos concept. To date, over 30 Tŷ Unnos have been constructed – affordable housing, offices and classrooms. The Tŷ Unnos project has won a number of awards including the TRADA 75th anniversary competition. The first Tŷ Unnos, ‘The Smithsonian’ is a single-storey, three bay, portal frame building. It was exhibited in Washington, USA and Cardiff before finding a home as the Coed Cymru show stand on the Royal Welsh Agricultural Showground (RWAS) in 2010. However, in 2014 project funding became available to redevelop the Smithsonian. Davies Sutton Architects and Maxiom Construction collaborated with Coed Cymru to design, source materials and build the Welsh timber stand – and the work was completed in July 2015.

Deconstruction and reuse To test the theory of deconstruction and re-use, ‘The Smithsonian’ was deconstructed, turned through 90 degrees, the portal box beam frames re-erected, the wall and roof panels shortened and re-used. A new floor deck was created to homogenise the partially open display building with the terrace linking it to the new Pavilion. The new Coed Cymru Pavilion is a contemporary 1.5 storey building, featuring the original Tŷ Unnos box beam timber frame system. Fully compliant with current building regulations, it incorporates factory-made structural panels which were insulated off site with Warmcel® by PYC. The Tŷ Unnos frame, complete with wall, roof and floor panels, was erected in a single day and fully wrapped in a breathable membrane to make it watertight, then windows and doors were inserted, followed by a steel roof and Welsh timber cladding.

be seen in oak frame post and beam structures. The system is designed to use the whole Welsh timber supply chain and makes modern architectural features accessible in new Welsh timber frame buildings. Welsh timber from eight sawmills was used throughout: Sitka spruce – box beam frame, structural panels and joists; Douglas fir – staircase and balustrades; larch – windows, doors, cladding, ovalgrain board flooring and scorched external cobbles; Scots pine – decking; Western red cedar – cladding; oak – flooring. Further timber species were used by the five Welsh designer/makers that furnished the buildings. The show stand also incorporates Welsh wool, slate, trees and a number of designer-made Welsh wooden items from businesses across Wales.

Wood flooring features Sawdust and shavings are a by-product of the Tŷ Unnos manufacturing process and are typically used to heat the buildings in which manufacture takes place. Most of the Tŷ Unnos built so far, have been built on suspended timber floors and include little or no dense materials (i.e. thermal mass). However, the Coed Cymru team wondered if using Woodcrete tiles would not only add value to wood waste but also create a thermal store, potentially buffering internal temperatures. Specialist Precast Products (SPP) of Caerphilly was commissioned to create tiles using wood waste from the processing of the Tŷ Unnos box beams and cladding profiles. SPP manufactured 540mm x 300mm tiles in 25mm and 50mm thicknesses which were laid at the fully glazed gable end of the Pavilion. The tiles, known as Eco‐ElementTM incorporate the following features: • Water absorption properties – similar to those of standard concrete, the tiles can be treated in the same way as standard concrete flooring and the same sealants applied. • Freeze characteristics – the material exhibits low amounts of fracturing when subjected to a freeze/thaw environment, because of the ability of the wood fibres to absorb the compressive forces of the frozen water within the concrete structure. • Compression strength - The typical compression strength of Portland cement is 20–40MPa and the compression strength of Eco‐ElementTM tiles is in a similar range (23–30MPa). However, the tiles at Tŷ Unnos have a density that is around half of that of Portland cement, and therefore give an equivalent compressive strength in a much lighter flooring product.

The performance of the tiles is being monitored in an ongoing study with Bath University.

The Endgrain project Experimentation and work by Endgrain project manager Dylan Jones has produced new and interesting research, leading to innovative products that have been incorporated into the Tŷ Unnos Pavilion. The research has been driven with the aim of developing a commercial resource from small-diameter logs arising from managing Welsh woodland which would otherwise be of little commercial value apart from firewood. In developing new product lines from otherwise low-grade material the work has the potential to add value and diversify the outputs. The following products are a result of this project.

External charred larch cobbles

A range of small diameter 100 x 100mm cobbles were laid externally at Coed Cymru’s offices in Wales, and it was noticed that the charred cobbles appeared to be considerably less slippery. This knowledge led to research into slip resistance in collaboration with BM TRADA. A report by Peter Kaczmar, June 2015 Ref: TCT/F15043 stated “The process of surface charring can bring about demonstrable

and marked reductions in slip potential compared with uncharred material when tested in accordance with BS 7976 Part 2. Under wet conditions the results, in some cases, were found to lead to improvements in the slip resistance of the surface which resulted in classification ‘upgrades’ of the slip potential rating as defined under the HSE slip potential system of classification.” To further demonstrate, assess and monitor the findings, the disabled access ramp to the Pavilion has been constructed from scorched larch cobbles. The cobbles, supplied by Wentwood Timber Centre, are 75mm x 90mm x 70mm thick and are bonded onto larch substrate with bitumen and screws.

cut at 90 degrees to the grain, but better than a standard sidegrain board. Therefore a viable attractive flooring product can be achieved from small diameter timber. A demonstration floor, machined with tongue and groove edging by Sanderson’s using Welsh Larch supplied by JM & EA Jones has been laid in a traditional herringbone parquet pattern in the pavilion. n

Ovalgrain Board

Small diameter logs when cut at an acute angle can produce a short board, 300mm to 450mm in length. The length of the board means that no special jigs are necessary when machining, therefore most planers or moulders can be used for processing. The face of the board exposes the endgrain which radiates out in an oval shape from the pith. Coed Cymru commissioned Exova BM TRADA to conduct comparative trials to evaluate the viability of using obliquely cut timber converted from small logs for use as a decorative floorcovering. In doing so the requirement to assess the comparative surface abrasion resistance of obliquely cut wood relative to that of side-grained or end-grain material is of fundamental importance. The test work was considered particularly important given the fact that little or no information on abrasion resistance is available in published literature sources for obliquely cut material. The results from the Taber Rotary Abrasion testing revealed that the surface is not as hard and wear resistant as endgrain tiles www.trada.co.uk

Tabitha was engaged in 2010 to run the ‘Improving the Supply

chain for Low Value Welsh Timber’ project. The project was funded through the Rural Development Plan for Wales 2007–2013 which

is funded by the Welsh Government and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.

Doors: The open and shut case for careful specification The incorrect specification of doors can result in unwarranted cost, disruption and inconvenience. As co-author of a forthcoming book Specifying the performance of doors, Matt Thompson highlights the basic requirements.


oors perform many important functions beyond letting people enter and exit a building; they reduce vulnerability to many fundamental risks, including:

• Fire • Security breaches • Unfair prevention of access • Loss of heat/cooling (energy inefficiency) • Noise • The weather, especially high winds and driving rain.

But even if doors are technically able to mitigate these risks adequately, their performance can be critically impaired by poor installation. In addition, over time doors can wear out, get damaged or be misused, and so they must be maintained and periodically replaced. The manufacture, installation and maintenance of doors and doorsets is therefore regulated for situations where risks: • threaten human health and safety • unfairly discriminate against some people • unduly compromise efforts to combat climate change • compromise the security of domestic buildings. The Building Regulations 2010 govern the design, specification and performance of doors, and list (in Schedule 1) the minimum technical standards to be achieved by building work and provide guidance on achieving these requirements, through the Approved Documents. However, the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 and the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 are also important in reinforcing the requirements of the Building Regulations, because these documents set out requirements for how employers and owners (mainly) should adjust their workplace to protect employees and other relevant groups of people. As well as stipulating that any building works must meet the relevant technical requirements, the Building Regulations also state that building works must not make other fabric, services and fittings less compliant or more dangerous than they were before. This is particularly relevant for doors where, for instance, a replacement could compromise fire protection or energy efficiency measures.

Unregulated risks The risks relating to doors also threaten impacts that are not regulated but which nevertheless can have an extremely >> www.trada.co.uk

serious effect, including losses of the property itself, its contents, occupant comfort (as distinct from health and safety), as well as business performance and continuity.

The specifics of specifying doors

Owners, occupiers, investors and other stakeholders in the building are not bound by law to heed these impacts but common sense dictates that they should. Indeed, they are generally implicit if not explicit in the brief.

It is useful to distinguish internal from external doors. But beyond that there is no simple hierarchy of factors or decision-making flowchart that can be followed to make the specification of doors easier without first knowing both the minimum legal requirements and the design intent for every new door in the building.

The insurance industry has a keen interest in minimizing these risks such as burglary. These risks are important enough to have engendered British Standards or other quality assurance schemes, such as ‘Secured by Design’. Indeed, Secured by Design is the basis for the recent requirement in the Building Regulations to meet minimum security standards in new dwellings.

Desirable performance characteristics of doors can clash, making it difficult to guard against all identified risks. For example, fire doors along emergency escape routes must not impede escape, which can make life easier for would-be burglars going the other way. Acoustic seals on a door can adversely affect the force required to open the door, denying access to some people.

Installation matters

It is therefore necessary to consider numerous variables: • the building’s geographical location (e.g., exposed clifftop), local context (e.g., next to a noisy motorway) and orientation (e.g., facing the prevailing wind) • the type of building (e.g., factory), the activities likely to happen inside and value of the building’s contents • whether the building is domestic, non-domestic, new, being extended or renovated, or undergoing a material change of use.

It is not just the door or doorset itself that can end up contravening the regulations but, crucially, how it is installed. This is recognised in Regulation 7, which says that building works must be carried out in a workmanlike manner, with proper materials which are ‘applied, used or fixed so as adequately to perform the functions for which they are designed’.

Specification and compliance In a perfect world, specifications would be completed and locked down as early as possible. But in practice the specification may be subject to change right up until the doors are installed. Nonetheless, the basic minimum requirements ought to at least remain relatively constant, regardless of, for example, the selection of brands, dimensions and models or final colour choices, styles and finishes. Especially on larger projects, doors are generally specified in what is called a ‘doors schedule’, a structured list of door types needed. It must spell out the desired basic minimum requirements. Merely asking for a door to be ‘secure’ or ‘properly installed’ is meaningless. You must have a concrete, universally agreed and understood method of communicating your needs. Typically, compliance may be shown by using: • CE-marked products • Third-party certification schemes • Testing to recognised test standards • Established experience in use (based on established test results). www.trada.co.uk

The ‘unseen’ design strategies – for patterns of usage, fire containment, emergency exit, ventilation, acoustic control, heating, and cooling – also have a critical impact on what must be specified. Many of these variables and design strategies are independent of each other. For example, external doors need to be adequately weatherproof regardless of whether they are also on an emergency exit route or able to resist unauthorised entry. In summary: • there is no alternative but to identify each risk or need independently, look at the whole picture, and only then determine the basic minimum specification. The specifier’s difficult job is to distinguish quickly and efficiently between performance characteristics that are essential, those that are merely nice to have, and those that are definitely surplus to requirement. In effect, this is about applying regulated minimum standards and assessing risks.

Setting standards Specifications are commonly communicated by requiring that products or services wherever possible meet relevant >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

British Standards (BSs), many of which are ‘harmonised’ with European standards (BS ENs) or indeed, global standards (BS EN ISOs). Indeed, compliance with the Building Regulations sometimes depends on meeting such standards.

All of these standards are subject to change, as knowledge and experience develops, so always check the status of specific editions against the up-to-date indexes on websites at the British Standards Institute or, in Europe, CENELEC.

The main standards for complete pedestrian doorsets are listed in the table below. As yet those listed for internal doorsets and fire/smoke resisting doorsets are not national standards, but when they are adopted as British standards by the end of 2016 UK manufacturers will be expected to comply.

All products covered by harmonised technical specifications must be CE-marked. If a product is not covered by a harmonised technical specification but manufacturers still wish to CE-mark their product and declare its performance, they can instead rely on European Assessment Documents (EADs).

The Construction Products Regulation 2013 (CPR) requires manufacturers to issue ‘Declarations of Performance’ (DoP) for CE-marked products. The DoP can be useful in determining whether a product meets the required specification but the DoP only applies if the product is correctly installed. A DoP describes how the quality of the product is assured by reference to the ‘Assessment and Verification of Constancy of Performance’ (AVCP). There are five systems of AVCP, ranging from System 1+ (highest standard) to System 4 (basic). >>

Fire door test

Joinery Doors

At the low end (System 4), manufacturers are trusted to assure quality themselves. But as the potential risks to health and safety associated with products increase, so the assigned systems require increasingly rigorous testing. The most rigorous system (System 1+) requires that products pass third-party certified tests for their intended use and that factory production is controlled through regular inspections, again by third-party, accredited bodies such as Exova BM TRADA. For example, when the relevant harmonised technical specification is published, fire doorsets will have to meet the System 1+ standard.

Specify the right test If a product is not already CE-marked under a high level of AVCP, it is worth considering specifying third-party testing through UKAS-accredited agents. Possible results from some test methods are as simple as ‘pass’ or ‘fail’. Others, for example fire resistance tests for a fire door, are not so straightforward. There might be several different outcomes from the test, and whether they are acceptable or not will depend on the defined criteria. A type of door that lasts 30 minutes in a fire resistance test can, when installed, be appropriate for some situations but not so where a 60-minute rating is required or where smoke resistance is also needed. Many voluntary schemes are available to certify products, processes and the training and registration of installers. Exova BM TRADA runs a number of UKAS-accredited testing regimes, product and process auditing programmes (e.g. for factory production control) and training schemes, many of them under their Q-Mark brand. For example, Exova BM TRADA’s Classification for Service Life unifies results from many different tests to different standards into one simple classification system. Based on BS EN 12400: windows and doors. Mechanical durability. Requirements and classification, it categorises doors’ durability as severe, heavy, medium, or light. It is complemented by a certification scheme aimed at manufacturers that requires them to maintain the processes that gave rise to the test results. Called the Q-Mark for Enhanced Lifetime Performance, specifying it will be easier but no less rigorous.

Check the certificates The product’s construction type, glazing and configuration must be cross-checked with the relevant CE mark or test certificate. Products can only safely be used for the situations and uses mentioned in the test certificate. For example, where single leaf doors are certified, using two in double doors may not be covered by the test evidence. The certificate will generally specify what physical variations are allowed, such as whether glazing is permitted, and what hardware standards are required. Note that it is safest only to use factory-glazed doors, especially for fire doors.

For products that cannot be CE-marked, or for specifiers who choose not to specify CE-marked products, third-party certification is an important quality backstop. Door assemblies (as opposed to doorsets) specified perhaps for aesthetic, flexibility or economic reasons, are the most obvious example of where third-party certification is useful. n www.trada.co.uk

How to specify stylish and safe circular staircases Mark Milner explains the specialist terminology used for staircase design, and describes the key features that must be considered to ensure that circular staircases are both safe and beautiful.


y favourite description of the process of designing a staircase is that it is ‘a mathematical solution to the problem of moving safely from one floor level to the next’ (coined by Kevin Jones, Technical Consultant for Archwood Limited t/a Richard Burbidge).

All stair users want to feel safe, but there’s a growing awareness among homeowners of the elegance and beauty a ‘feature’ staircase can provide. And the most stylish of feature staircases, with its smooth flowing lines sweeping gracefully from one floor level to the next, is undoubtedly the bespoke circular staircase. A circular staircase – sometimes called ‘curved’ or ‘helical’ – takes up a considerable amount of space, particularly above the

stairs, where it is essential to provide the required two metres of headroom. And this demand for space, combined with the complexity of three-dimensional circular joinery, requires a substantial investment, making the need to select the right design essential. Understanding the basics and being able to give a clear specification are crucial.

Staircase specification – a stair-builder’s view There is a vast amount of terminology involved in stair building (it’s one reason for my fascination with the subject), all of which could be considered for inclusion in a specification by the thorough designer. There is no need for regulatory details to be included in the specification because the staircase >>

manufacturer will be familiar with these; a specifier need simply stipulate a staircase ‘in which compliance with the Building Regulations can be demonstrated’. However, it is always wise to have an understanding of the limiting factors that underpin a design – especially for something as technically complex as a bespoke circular staircase – so this article provides an overview of current requirements and describes the terminology and design constraints of staircases. The table below (Table 1) lists basic terminology for stairs, and the diagrams (A) and (B) illustrate some of the terminology for balustrades and stairs.

Compliance with regulations Staircases comprise the main flight of steps and the balustrade, both of which pose the risk of accidents to users and so, in England and Wales, need to meet the requirements of the Building Regulations; specifically, Approved Document K: Protection from falling, collision and impact. This document (usually referred to as Part K) deals with stairs found in both domestic environments, where timber is predominant, and in commercial applications, where steel and glass are commonplace. Where a staircase >>

Stair category and definition







Private stair (a stair intended to be used for only one dwelling)





General access stair (a stair intended for all users of a building on a day-to-day basis, as a normal route between levels)





* The normal relationship between the dimensions of the rise and going is twice the rise plus the going (2R + G) equals between 550mm and 700mm. Notes: 1. The maximum pitch (angle) for a private stair is 42°. 2. For dwellings, for external tapered steps and stairs that are part of the building the going of each step should be a minimum of 280mm. 3. For school buildings, the preferred going is 280mm and the rise is 150mm.

forms part of a means of escape, reference should be made to Approved Document B: Fire safety. Approved Document M: Access to and use of buildings, should also be consulted. Reference to circular stairs in Part K is limited to directing the reader to the relevant British Standard, BS 5395-2:1984, which provides guidance on the design, construction, and dimensions of such stairs. Part K can, however, be used to satisfy the functional requirements of the Building Regulations because, in defining a tapered tread as ‘a step in which the going reduces from one side to the other’, the document’s specification is the same for both circular stairs and stairs containing kites/winders.

Entry step design The first tread and riser combination of a flight is known as its ‘starting’, or ‘entry’ step. An often uninteresting, yet functional, entry step results from locating a newel post at the foot of a staircase. A bottom newel post which is set back by one step expands the design options available for the entry step: • A ‘bullnose step’ has a quarter round at one or both ends returning to the face of the bottom newel posts • A round-end, or D-step has a half round projecting beyond the exposed side, or sides, of a flight >>

Steps The two parts of a step are the horizontal part (the tread) and the vertical part (the riser). The treads of an uncarpeted staircase, or one with a feature carpet runner, are usually made from hardwood; American white oak is very popular. Those of a fully carpeted staircase can be in the more economical softwood, typically European Redwood. Open risers can provide a contemporary feel to a staircase and minimise light loss, making the room or hallway in which the flight is located feel more spacious and airy, and are a popular choice for modern circular staircases. However, the spaces between treads created by open risers can provide a trip hazard, and a view which often instils a sense of insecurity (making their use in public buildings unsuitable). Part K recommends that open risers must not allow the passage of a 100mm sphere (which represents the head of a young child) if the stairs are likely to be used by children under the age of five, but observing this recommendation during the manufacture of all stairs is good practice. The ‘baby’s head theory’ (as it is known), is often checked quickly with a building inspector’s clenched fist. Risers, whether open or not, can be made from solid timber or veneered plywood. www.trada.co.uk

This beautiful staircase, made by Westcliffe Joiners in West Yorkshire, benefits from open strings and starts with a double-depth round-end step beneath a single-depth curtail step.

• A curtail step (similar to a D-step) has a round end that corresponds to the rounded terminal – known as a ‘volute’ – of the handrail above. A drop of less than 600mm requires no guarding, allowing the bottom newel post to be set back further still to the start of the third step, which creates the option of a double-depth D-step beneath a single-depth D-step. But the higher handrail in such an arrangement should be approached with caution by designers, because a standard handrail height of 900mm combined with a rise of around 200mm results in a rail approximately 1,100mm from the floor. Note that setting the newel post further back can add 400mm or more and produce a handrail which is up to 1,500mm from the ground. Options for steps: • hardwood or softwood treads • bullnose, D-, or curtail entry step • double-depth and single-depth combination D-steps • open or closed risers • solid timber or veneered plywood risers • painted or polished.

Strings A flight’s strings (or stringers) are the main structural members – the sides of a staircase which carry the steps. The curved strings of a circular staircase are usually laminated in several layers of flexible plywood and finished with a veneer matching the flight’s chosen timber; they can be closed or open: • A closed string is one whose upper and lower edges are parallel, and into which the steps are housed, glued, and wedged. A closed string is almost always found on the side of a staircase which abuts a wall, where it is known as a ‘wall string’. • The upper edge of an open string is notched and shaped to support the ends of the steps and is known as a ‘cut string’. And so that the unsightly end grain of a cut string and ends of the risers remain unseen, they meet with mitres, hence the name ‘cut and mitred string’. The preference of many is for the exposed side (or sides) of a feature staircase to be open. It is a view I largely >>

share; during my time in Canada, where I worked for one of North America’s leading manufacturers of bespoke circular staircases, a closed outer string was almost unheard of. The additional work involved in cutting and mitring a string – along with its treads and risers – as opposed to routing housings, leads to an increase in costs and a higher end price. The resulting staircase, however, with its steps visible when viewed from the side, is very attractive and highly desirable. Options for circular strings: • thickness (32mm is standard, although that of circular strings is dependent upon the number of layers of flexible plywood used for their manufacture) • open or closed • finish veneers (circular strings only) • painted or polished.

Balustrade design If there is a drop of more than 600mm stair users must be protected from the risk of falls. A safety barrier, comprising a handrail that can be grasped comfortably, balusters (or spindles) infilling the space between the handrail and steps below, and newel posts holding the assembly rigid, is known as a ‘balustrade’. As well as achieving a minimum height of 900mm, a balustrade system must also withstand minimum loadings. Specifiers can employ the services of a structural engineer for precise calculations or, to quicken the design process, can select a Tested system. A circular staircase requires a circular handrail. Formed from timber strips sufficiently thin to bend to the required shape, the circular handrail is glued and laminated in a similar way to that of circular strings. Once shaped, it can either be fixed in sections between two newel posts or, by using specially shaped fittings such as easings, goosenecks, and volutes, can pass above newel posts forming a continuous run. The two systems are known as ‘post-to-post’ and ‘over-the-post’ – the more labourintensive and time-consuming latter is also more expensive. On a traditional staircase, the handrail is often supported by balusters which have been turned on a lathe. When used on an open (cut string) staircase, turned balusters can offer additional aesthetic design options. For example, the tops of the balusters can be either square or tapered, and they can be oriented to either the treads or to the handrail. The more traditional treadoriented balusters are cut so that their square sections at the bottom are all the same length and run parallel with the surface of each tread. Rail-oriented balusters are cut and fixed so that each turned section is positioned to run parallel with the handrail. www.trada.co.uk

Taper-topped balusters are at risk of turning under pressure. This risk can be eliminated by gluing and pinning, as well as dowelling the balusters, or by replacing the round dowel at the lower ends with square tenons. Above a cut string, balusters are usually arranged in one of two ways: two balusters per tread, typically at the narrow ends of a circular flight’s tapered treads; or three balusters per tread, found at tapered treads’ wide ends (when that side of a flight is exposed) or on shallower-pitched straight staircases. The decision of which to use is largely functional; architects, conscious of the ‘baby’s head theory’, will often specify a maximum distance between balusters of 99mm. Tip: the narrowing of turned balusters means these ornate components must be closer together in order to prevent the passing of a 100mm sphere. Options for balustrades: • post-to-post handrail or over-the-post handrail • turned or square-edge balusters • square-topped or taper-topped turned balusters • tread-oriented or rail-oriented balusters • two balusters per tread or three balusters per tread.

Getting the specification right Information important to the manufacturer includes: the materials from which the staircase is to be made; the decking thicknesses, which might affect the overall rise and so that the landing nosing can be made to suit; and any finishes to the ceiling, which might affect headroom. The staircase manufacturer will take accurate measurements, calculate a suitable rise and going, and be able to recommend the design features best suited to the property and the space available. Once armed with precise site dimensions and a design agreed with the client, setting out can commence – the first stage in making the exquisite experience that is the bespoke circular staircase a reality. n

Landscape and exterior Decking

“Wood plastic composite decking is composed of wood from sawdust mixed with virgin or waste plastics – typically high density polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride or polypropylene.”


he price point for wood plastic composite (WPC) decking is relatively high, placing it at the upper end of the decking market alongside hardwoods. The appeal is ease of maintenance. However, a number of cases of poor performance have been reported to the Timber Decking and Cladding Association (TDCA), although these appear to be limited to a particular type of ‘cheaper’ hollow form board. Installation errors were a feature in many cases, although product quality issues remain under question. Concern has also arisen about new deck boards being fitted over existing substructures which are often unsuitable for wood plastic composite. The TDCA therefore recommends that specifiers and users of wood plastic composite deck boards do their research before committing to a product to avoid potential issues. There are certain questions you might want to ask in order to assess product credentials, but let’s begin with the obvious one: what is WPC decking?

What is wood plastic composite decking? Wood plastic composite decking (also known as wood polymer composite, WPC or simply just composite) is a relatively new material in the UK. It is usually composed of wood from sawdust mixed with virgin or waste plastics – typically high density PE (polyethylene), PVC (polyvinyl chloride) or PP (polypropylene). The powder or fibres are mixed to a dough-like consistency and then extruded or moulded to the desired shape. Extrusion is the technique used for decking and fencing and related products. Additives – such as colourants, coupling agents, stabilizers, blowing agents, reinforcing agents, foaming agents and lubricants – help to tailor the end product to the target area of application. The overriding principle is to fully encapsulate the wood fibre particles with melted plastic to form a homogenous material so that the plastic encases the wood fibre and protects it from moisture ingress. However, plastic and wood cannot easily be mixed. Manufacture is a complex process, which >> www.trada.co.uk

requires careful handling of the materials in a series of stages – each with critical aspects to get right, such as particle size and distribution and removal of moisture. Any short cuts can lead to disastrous results. There may also be a finishing stage because newly extruded materials may have an unappealing, shiny surface. If steel brushing is used then this actually breaks the surface and exposes unprotected wood fibre. In addition, embossing can be used to create a wood grain effect; while capping adds an extra protective layer. Capping, however, should not be used to compensate for inferior quality boards.

Are there any WPC decking products accredited under TDCA’s DeckMark® scheme? The short answer is no, because TDCA doesn’t currently cover WPC in membership but there are members who do

have reputable WPC decking products as part of their range. However, TDCA acknowledges that WPC boards are often fitted onto a solid timber substructure and this aspect is very much within the domain of the association. And the TDCA therefore recognises a need to educate people to ensure this critical part of the deck is built correctly with the capability to support the loads placed upon it.

What advice should I follow? With WPC decking it is critical to review product credibility prior to selection and to install it in strict compliance with supplier guidance. Then if any issues do arise, the installation techniques cannot be held responsible. In terms of product credibility, key questions to ask include: • What is the wood fibre component? • Is it responsibly sourced? • What polymer is used? • Is the wood fibre distributed evenly throughout the product? • Is moisture removed to a sufficient extent in the process? • Is the plastic component virgin plastic or recycled? • If recycled, how is quality controlled? • Can it be recycled and if so where and how? Then when it comes to installation, TDCA has issued guidance on how to build a timber substructure to support WPC boards.1 The guidance outlines critical differences between natural solid wood and WPC in relation to deck building. In brief: • WPC does not have the same inherent strength as timber, so joists will need to be positioned closer together. This should be taken into account when comparing costs of a wholly timber deck against one with WPC boards. • Unlike timber, WPC expands along its length. Therefore pay particular attention to the advice given regarding gaps between abutting boards. Be aware also that gapping advice can vary according to temperature/time of year.

Safe installation

Examples of issues with WPC deckboard. This material had been in service for less than two years. Clearly visible are the voids within the structure which have been caused by moisture ingress. This breakdown has then led to lifting and breaking up of the top surface. Photo: TDCA


The TDCA has been made aware of some projects where WPC deck boards have been retrofitted to existing timber substructures. This is fraught with potential pitfalls; in particular the joist spans are unlikely to be suitable to sufficiently support what is a very different material with different properties. In addition, the substructure will have used up some of its serviceable lifespan, which will limit the service life of the ‘remodelled’ structure. >> Timber 2016 Industry Yearbook

It comes with a warranty so I don’t have to worry; or do I? TDCA advice is to review in detail any warranties given to find out exactly what they cover and how they operate. Also who is providing the back-up for the warranty if things go wrong, and what support is available? When reviewing a warranty, note the exceptions; for example, some anti-stain warranties will only apply if you clean the stain as instructed within a specified time. Keep warranty documentation in a safe place for future reference.

Keeping members informed The TDCA aims to ensure that all decking and cladding structures are designed and installed properly so as to provide reliable performance. Reports of poor performance are a major concern to the organisation and its members because they have the capacity to impact on the market in general. At the TDCA 2015 annual meeting, an independent consultant with extensive experience in the wood polymer field addressed attendees, giving them an insight into how products are manufactured and a toolkit to help evaluate product.

“Traditionally, the charring process involved a smokestack/flue arrangement of slender boards positioned over a fire, or with paper added to the core of this ‘chimney’. Setting the fire alight resulted in carbonization (charring) of the surface of the timber.”


hen an image of a novel timber product graces the front cover of House & Garden magazine’s Trends supplement, you know something is afoot. The stunning image of glossy blackened timber, hinting at the material’s Japanese roots sparked considerable interest among clients and designers of prestigious new projects, always keen to investigate the ‘latest thing’. But charred timber is nothing new.

The technique originates in Japan, where it is known as shou-sugi-ban, which translates as ‘burnt cedar board’, sugi being Japanese cedar. For many centuries wood was the material of choice for construction in Japan, which has a rich forest environment. Among Japanese wooden architectural monuments, the oldest existing example was built at the end of the 7th Century, for instance. The technique of shou-sugi-ban, however, is thought to have been developed more recently – around four centuries ago – as an alternative to aesthetically pleasing driftwood and naturally weathered timber. The practice fell out of favour in the 1900s with the advent of plastics and cement-based products for cladding, decking and fencing, but was ‘rediscovered’ early in the 2000s, first in Japan, then in Europe and North America – particularly among designers who were seeking attractive and sustainable alternatives to non-renewable cladding materials.

Hand-crafted finish Traditionally, the charring process involved a smokestack/ flue arrangement of slender boards positioned over a fire, or with paper added to the core of this ‘chimney’. Setting the fire alight resulted in carbonization (charring) of the surface of the timber. The process today is more typically performed using an industrial blowtorch. After charring, the timber surface is doused in water and allowed to cool. The surface charring may then be lightly brushed or abraded to remove loose surface debris, although the specifics of the latter (or if it is done at all) depends upon the desired surface effect. Sometimes the surface may be >> www.trada.co.uk

agents that pose the greatest threat to exterior joinery (including cladding) in the UK. For this reason Exova BM TRADA believes that more durable species should be charred for use in the UK where longer service lives are typically required (see below). Western red cedar is a popular choice because it is readily available and chars in an easy and reliable manner. The heartwood of imported Western red cedar is also durable against wood destroying fungi. Larch, being denser than Japanese cedar and Western red cedar, chars more slowly but is widely available from UK forests and elsewhere and is affordable. The technique works equally well with hardwoods, although typically this is an expensive option owing to the higher costs of the raw materials and the extra processing time required.

Durability and fire protection As with any other cladding material, durability is an important property because it influences service life.

left to weather. A light oil finish may be applied to the charred surface – reportedly beneficial in preventing rubbing off of char when the timber is handled.

Since the rediscovery of the charred wood technique there have been numerous claims that the process confers protection against decay agents, although there is little evidence for this from published research studies, particularly with regard to wood-destroying fungi (see case study overleaf). >>

The traditional Japanese method was applied to relatively thin boards (6–8mm, according to some sources), whereas today more conventional thicknesses of board are used (i.e. 16mm to 21mm), and charring is typically done to a depth of 3mm though the depth of charring is varied depending upon the desired aesthetic: • A superficial surface charring will cause a ‘relief’ of the earlywood/latewood layers, creating a distinctive ‘zebra’ figure. • Deeper charring will cause a more consistent jet black surface colouring with deeper charring providing the characteristic ‘alligatoring’ effect. The examples shown in this article illustrate some of the different surface effects and intensity of colour that can be achieved by varying the level of charring as well as brushing the surface post charring in what is a labour-intensive bespoke process. The precise nature of the finish will, of course, depend on the choice of timber. Traditionally, Japanese cedar Cryptomeria japonica was used for shou-sugi-ban. However, neither the heartwood or sapwood of Japanese cedar are durable against wood-destroying fungi – the www.trada.co.uk

For that reason specifiers should be realistic about the service life of charred timber cladding. BM TRADA would expect charred cladding manufactured from durable species to provide longer service lives. It is important that, as for uncharred cladding, detailing should aim to promote drainage/drying of the cladding in service, because this will influence service life. As for other timber cladding the greatest uptake of water is via unsealed end grain and adjacent to fixings. The charring process is not generally applied to the end grain and the fixings

breach the charred layer, enabling rainwater and fungal spores to access uncharred wood beneath. For that reason it is essential that the timber used be moderately durable or better in order to provide a suitable service life in the UK. The longevity of the charred finish outdoors in the UK is as yet unknown. It is likely to depend on the level of charring and level of exposure to direct weathering. Exova BM TRADA is unaware of charred cladding being installed for longer than 15 years in the UK. >>

Case study: The Observatory - Material research into charred timber exterior cladding


he Observatory is a pair of mobile studio cabins for 12 artists-in-residence during a two year moving programme which started in the south coast of England. The structure is clad in charred timber – a choice influenced by the aesthetics of the timber’s texture and its sustainable qualities as a weather-resistant material, in response to the remote, coastal locations of the Observatory. The design team ran a series of testing workshops before construction to establish the best wood for charring and also the best charring method to use. Various woods were tested, analysing and evaluating the advantages and disadvantages of charring each type. The traditional Japanese shou-sugiban charring process was also refined and lessons learned. One of the key decisions was to use the traditional method of charring, as this it is carbon neutral: using gas is less environmentally friendly and does not provide the aesthetic of deep blisters which can be achieved through the traditional Japanese method of constructing a three plank chimney, using a newspaper sheet and kindling only. One of the cabins used imported Siberian larch and the other used home-grown larch, and including one test wall of mixed timbers (chestnut, oak and cedar), each 30mm thick. It took one day to char 50 chimneys on site with contractors S&S Construction, working on planks ranging from 2m to 4m in length. The design team is recording the effects the weather and time is having on the charred timber, and will also look to further investigate various fixatives for organically preserving the charring effect, to increase the longevity of this texture in outdoor conditions. Key lessons learned: • Various blistering effects of high material quality produced as a result of charring time and timber type. • Architectural application can also extend to building interiors

• Shou-sugi-ban is a fast, sustainable and cheap method of burning timber but requires an experienced team and good outdoor weather conditions. Drawbacks: • Charring large quantities of timber can be labour intensive and requires relevant health and safety procedures. • Post-char, some timbers had to have their edges charred with gas. • For added longevity blisters require a fixative. The finish of the wood is dependent on the fixative used, whether this be a wood oil or water based acrylic varnish. Little is known about fixing blisters together - water-based acrylic varnish was used in a test. At the time of writing, this is still holding blisters on well and does not allow charcoal to rub of onto people’s clothes. • Fixing methods for cladding the timber to structure need to be detailed properly in order not to damage the blisters. Charred softwoods crumble more easily than hardwoods.

In terms of fire performance, charring is known to act as a protective layer to underlying timber reducing surface spread of flame. However, the level of fire protection will depend on the depth of charring, which may erode over the lifetime of the cladding. Without test evidence the process cannot be considered a reliable means of fire protection. Flame retardants may not be able to be applied prior to charring or post charring.

Specifying and installing charred cladding Detailed guidance on specifying timber cladding, including charred timber, can be found in the External Timber Cladding and Wood Information Sheet WIS 1-50 (Timber cladding for building refurbishment), which proposes three methods of installation of overcladding, depending on circumstances noting, in particular, that: • Timber cladding should always be installed as a ‘rainscreen’ with a drained and ventilated cavity to the rear. • The cavity should allow for drainage of water that may penetrate and ventilation promotes drying down of the rear of the cladding boards preventing decay. • Ventilation limits moisture variation between the outer and inner faces of boards which reduces their distortion • Sufficient allowance should be provided for movement of the cladding resulting from seasonal variation in moisture content. Fixing charred cladding is no different from fixing uncharred boards, although it should be recognised that charred cladding is used for aesthetics and the head of the fixing may detract from the appearance of the clad facade. Karl Harrison of charred timber supplier Exterior Solutions (www.exteriorsolutionsltd.co.uk) notes that pinning, nailing or screwing are all practical options, but screw-fixing can be a popular option for architect-led projects because the fixings can either be made invisible or deliberately www.trada.co.uk

enhanced to make a bold design statement. Unlike thermally modified cladding, the movement of charred cladding will be similar to species used for its manufacture.

Conclusion It is worth bearing in mind that the material originates from a time and culture where regular maintenance and replacement of materials were expected. The Western tendency to seek ‘fitand-forget’ solutions means that charred timber cladding may not be compatible with some applications and designs. Low durability timbers are sometimes used for exterior cladding outside of the UK without additional protection from wood preservatives. In these cases protection is provided through good detailing and the climate elsewhere is less conducive to decay by fungi (i.e. much colder). This article focuses on cladding, but the charring process has been used for a number of applications including external larch cobbles (see page 161). n
