Building platforms

Creating clear and concise communication is essential for conveying the benefits of using timber. TRADA’s new website aims to be a perfect platform for communicating with its members and the construction industry in general.


ver the past year, TRADA has spent much time in developing its new website and client relations database, which has been created for and by its members. This gives TRADA the perfect platform from which to communicate the great work we do giving members more value and access to the information they need and to promote what they do. Of course, the past year has not been without its challenges and the nation’s decision to exit the EU was headline news all over the world. The actual realities of what this means for the economy – or the timber trade – have yet to be really felt. But TRADA is not one to rest on its laurels: we are working on a five-year plan that encourages continued membership growth from within the UK; a stronger alliance with the key trade organisations such as the Structural Timber Association, the British Woodworking Federation and the Timber Trade Federation; and we are looking at ways in which TRADA can capitalise on its knowledge to increase its overseas membership. And, as Chairman, I am delighted to report that membership grew again in 2016, reflecting TRADA’s commitment and contribution to the UK construction industry based on the foundations of our strong brand and values as a membership organisation. Despite any uncertainty of Brexit, the UK continues to invest in the mass off-site production of engineered timber and I believe we are well placed in continuing to trade with importers. Over the next few years I would expect growth in order for the UK to start exporting unitised timber components as the UK off-site market will become far more competitive.

Following the departures of two influential Board Directors, Simon Fineman and Craig White, who have given many years of service to TRADA, I am delighted to announce that Andrew Waugh, of Waugh Thistleton Architects, and Grown in Britain’s Charlie Law have joined the Board of Directors. Andrew Abbott, our outgoing Chief Executive, has remained on our Board and I am also delighted to announce that Graham Edwards, Marketing Manager for Exova BM TRADA, has taken on the challenge of filling Andrew’s shoes. As a Board our focus remains on membership development and our five-year strategic plan to increase funding without overburdening members. This will see us adding to our range of major project publications, such as Structural timber elements: a pre-scheme design guide, initiated by our Board Director Simon Smith, who also chairs the dynamic TRADA Advisory Committee. This will ensure that TRADA remains at the forefront of leading technologies as timber becomes an acceptable building medium across all forms of construction. n

TRADA Review of the year

Making progress Rupert Scott rounds up the year for TRADA.


can’t believe 12 months has gone by since the last time I sat down to review our progress. And I choose that word carefully, because, every year, TRADA is making progress: getting the message out about timber to the people that really matter.

In fact, with new publications, exhibitions and competitions, 2016 was a bumper year for TRADA, with new members and high-profile activity that has kept our name at the forefront of people’s minds.

centrepiece of TRADA’s stand. Both students were presented with their awards during the show by Nigel Cox, Managing Director, Timbmet. Meanwhile, TRADA used the show to launch its publication Hybrid construction: timber-based solutions to structural challenges, which looks at a number of mixed material construction (timber and steel) projects and explores the effectiveness of the buildings created as a solution.

Exhibitions There was a real buzz around this year’s Ecobuild stand, with a high level of footfall to engage with TRADA’s experts in what was billed as the ‘Timber Interactive Learning Zone’. But the most eye-catching element had to be the scaled-up version of the winning entry into this year’s Timbmet Dan Kemp Memorial Pavilion competition. An innovative design that enables cyclists to pull up to a picnic table – and remain on their bikes for a social picnic with friends – was created by Oxford Brookes University students Ioana Bucuroiu and Jester Abayari in the annual competition and scaled up to excellent effect to create the

Ecobuild exhibition

We also co-sponsored – along with Hanson Plywood – a collaboration project that resulted in an innovative hanging installation that was one of the talking points of Timber Expo 2016 (see next article). The installation – which is dubbed Membrane+ and is 4m x 3m – was created by students from the Emergent Technologies and Design programme and investigated during their annual design/build exploration. The installation consists of three rows of a plywood-latex composite and comprises undulating doubly-curved forms interacting with the light above.

TRADA Review of the year

Competitions Twenty outstanding buildings were selected for the Wood Awards 2016 shortlist, featuring some of Britain’s best architectural designs in wood. The competition – which is co-sponsored by TRADA – celebrates excellence in architecture and product design in the world’s only naturally sustainable material. Led by architect Michael Morrison of Purcell, the judges reviewed applications in a variety of categories including: Commercial & Leisure, Education & Public Sector, Interiors, Private and Small Projects. In addition to the 20 buildings, a shortlist of 12 projects were selected from a record number of 182 British furniture and product projects in the 2016 Wood Awards. Two bespoke, six production and four student designs were selected by the judges, led by Max Fraser, design curator and author.

The latter category was added to acknowledge the work that university students carry out, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, pushing forward our understanding of everexpanding applications for timber. Ewan Macpherson, from Cambridge University’s engineering department, took the top honours for his research into folded plate CLT roof structures. The research proposal was put forward by Smith and Wallwork, who wanted to understand the rotational behaviour of half lap joints between CLT panels. And last, but no means least, a design for a cutting-edge timber structure inspired by nature won the £3,000 top prize – in TRADA’s National Student Design Competition (NSDC) 2016. The winning design – dubbed ‘The Leaf’ – was created by students Laila Alawneh and Yliana Cristova from Aalborg University in Denmark. The judges were unanimous in their choice of the winner, which blended the performance characteristics of timber with a highly decorative aesthetic.

Meanwhile, a modified wood made from underused native trees and a research project to examine rotational stiffness in the connections between cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels scooped top honours in 2016’s TTJ Timber Innovation Awards, joint sponsored by TRADA and Timber Expo. Vastern Timber’s Brimstone – winner of the Innovative Product Development category – is the first commercially available thermally modified British timber range. It is produced exclusively from trees grown in English and Welsh woodlands, and from species that are currently underused.

TRADA’s National Student Design Competition: Arboreal 2016

Laila and Yliana beat off strong competition from students from Coventry University, the University of Wolverhampton, University of Strathclyde and Edinburgh University. However, the judges were so impressed by the standard of entries that they awarded not one but two ‘Highly Commended’ prizes. This year’s NSDC – dubbed Arboreal – challenged student designers to explore the science of timber as a modern construction material for a design for an exciting Wood Centre run by tree and forestry charity, the Sylva Foundation. TTJ Awards ceremony 2016

The 2016 competition was split into two categories: Innovative Product Development and a new category, Innovative University Timber Research. www.trada.co.uk

2017’s competition – dubbed CO2nnect – challenges students to think about the wider issues surrounding carbon sequestration and the possibility of re-using timber modular buildings. Further information is available on the TRADA website and we look forward to a further round of inspiring entries. n Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

TRADA Timber Expo 2016

TRADA steals the show at Timber Expo

When it comes to high-profile backers of timber frame construction, they don’t get much higher than Grand Designs presenter, designer and vocal supporter of custom build, Kevin McCloud.


o it was quite a coup for TRADA to attract the ever-busy McCloud to its Timber Focus Theatre, as part of a panel discussion examining the role of timber frame construction in self-build. Responding to questions about the role of timber in custom build, McCloud referenced the two projects his company HAB is doing, bringing pre-glazed panels to site enabling a timber frame house to be constructed in three to four days. ‘The potential that timber has to offer providers is really significant,’ he said. ‘Add to that the way that the timber industry is bringing in new products, such as timber made out of recycled newspaper, and it is a really positive thing.’

Seminar programme In fact, there were lots of positives for timber at the UK’s only timber-focused exhibition, which again took place at Birmingham’s NEC and was organised by Media 10. TRADA played a key role in the show, organising the seminar programme and attracting visitors to its stand with a number of initiatives that ensured a steady flow throughout the show’s three days. The format for the 2016 seminar programme changed to include a greater degree of audience participation with more discussions, panellists and Q&A time. This format worked well, with the custom build discussion – also featuring MP Richard Bacon – one of several highlights. The MP provided an interesting insight into the Right to Build Act. Commenting on the lack of available land for building new homes, Bacon said: ‘When asked why we have a shortage of housing people give the strangest answers. And yet it’s really simple: if demand exceeds supply, the price will increase. The question is, why is this the case? Most of the land in the UK is not taken up by houses. The problem is accessible land that people can get their hands on.’ The morning seminar session in TRADA’s Timber Focus Theatre was focused on specifying timber for structures made easier. www.trada.co.uk

Membrane+: Architectural Association students’ exploration into membrane and timber composite structures

Author of TRADA’s Structural timber elements: a pre-scheme design guide, James Norman provided a whistle-stop tour of how the guide can help specifiers and timber engineers in their decision-making about the use of timber. ‘The idea is that you use the guide the moment you decide to construct a building,’ he said. ‘It will help people choose the right type of product. It also gives you an idea of how deep and wide things need to be. It is not a detailed design book; it helps engineers used to designing in steel and concrete to use timber and have confidence in their decisions.’ Meanwhile, Greg Cooper, Pre-construction Manager, B&K Structures, examined whether TRADA’s National Structural Timber Specification (NSTS) can help to get timber specifications right for major timber sub-contractors. Cooper talked through a number of ongoing projects and explained how the NSTS has streamlined the process of agreeing the specification for timber structures with clients, architects and engineers. He also provided an update on recent changes to the document, which includes the use of hardwoods. >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

The installation – which is dubbed Membrane+ – was the star of the AA’s end-of-year show, Projects Review. Created by students from the Emergent Technologies and Design programme – and investigated during their annual design/build exploration – Membrane+ consists of three rows of a plywood-latex composite and comprises undulating doublycurved forms interacting with the light above.

‘Why did the timber industry need the NSTS ?’ said Cooper. ‘To give people confidence that they would get the buildings they needed. We spent a long time building timber buildings to the Steel and Concrete Specification documents, hence the launch last year of the NSTS that explains how it all comes together in timber.’

Award winners Visitors also heard from the winners of the Timber Innovation Award (TIA) and this year’s TRADA’s National Student Design Competition (NSDC).

The finished product is the result of months of development, including an ideas competition and testing full-scale prototypes at the AA’s Hooke Park facility.

On your bike! Bike fanatics – or in fact anyone interested in creating products from sustainable materials – got the chance to see one of a new breed of timber bikes on TRADA’s stand. Nick Coates, founder of BEAMZ, was on the stand with his innovative bike made from coppice woodland poles. The bike was built to demonstrate the virtue of BEAMZ material and structures by putting the material head to head with the best structural materials available.

A modified wood made from underused native trees and a research project to examine rotational stiffness in the connections between cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels scooped top honours in this year’s TTJ TIA, joint sponsored by TRADA and Timber Expo. Vastern Timber’s Brimstone – winner of the Innovative Product Development category – is the first commercially available thermally modified British timber range. Meanwhile, Ewan Macpherson, from Cambridge University’s engineering department, took the top honours for his research into folded plate CLT roof structures. The NSDC was organised by TRADA’s University Engagement Programme, and visitors got the opportunity to see the winning designs from the 2016 Arboreal competition, as well as getting details of the 2017 competition, dubbed ‘CO2nnect’. They were also able to see the winning structure of this year’s Timbmet Dan Kemp Memorial Pavilion.

A brave new world…

Tim Belden, TRADA’s University Engagement Manager, reflects on the past year and looks forward to what lies ahead.


as it been a year of particularly historic events? Or perhaps, in this ever-changing world and easy ‘on tap’ media information, it just feels that way?

In December 2015 the Paris Agreement saw 195 countries taking the first steps towards a global action plan, with the aim of putting the world on track to avoid dangerous climate change by limiting global warming to well below 2°C. It is well known that when trees take in carbon dioxide and transform it into cellulose, they capture or sequestrate the carbon. And it is obvious to those in the timber industry that using more timber in construction will help play a significant part in reducing global warming.

Raising awareness

also a joint Charted Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) CPD event, where many other industry speakers were gathered. As this link between academia and industry continues to gather strength, it is certainly going to feature as a key facet of the UEP over the next few years. The new TRADA website has a university research area that allows everyone to view what university research is going on relating to timber. This information will be populated by lecturers. It will help universities by demonstrating to governments that research is actually being looked at by the industry and is therefore relevant. In turn, it helps direct government funding to those universities by demonstrating that this research is worthwhile.

The core role of the University Engagement Programme (UEP) is to help future architects and engineers understand how greater timber use can be achieved. After all, lecturers are currently training the future clients, specifiers, workers and leaders of the timber industry. That is why raising student awareness of the industry and the sustainability, versatility and beauty of timber is so important.

It also benefits the industry because there will be an easy-to-use portal to keep an eye on the future research developments in timber and a place to help shape future areas for research. As an added advantage it will help industry engage more easily with universities as they will be able to find the right contact to talk to about further collaborative work, which has always been a stumbling block in the past.

The final UEP lecture of the 2015/16 academic year also marked the historic 100th UEP lecture at a UK university. The event was

But it is not just TRADA that thinks this university and industry relationship has to be strengthened further.

Using the past to inform the future May 2016 heralded the arrival of the Government’s white paper ‘Higher education: success as a knowledge economy’. In his foreword, Jo Johnson MP, Minister of State for Universities and Science wrote, ‘If we are to continue to succeed as a knowledge economy, we cannot stand still... We must ensure that the system is fulfilling its potential and delivering good value for students, for employers and for the taxpayers who underwrite it.’ It highlights the major changes faced by universities and is certainly an interesting read for those of us with an interest in education.



The underlying emphasis is in closer aligning of the higher education system with industry job demands and increasing flexibility of delivery, but always recognising that there is a time delay between the start of a student’s education and that same student emerging ready for work in the industry. The paper >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

discusses alternative ways of providing this education to fulfil the needs of employers. 23 June 2016 marked Brexit day. We remain poised to see how this story unfolds. It may prove to have far-reaching impacts on both the UK higher education institutions and industry alike. If so, we face it together and are stronger when we understand how the relationship is one of partnership and common goal, not two detached and isolated ventures. On 4 July 2016 Juno completed its five-year mission to Jupiter to gaze through the swirling gas clouds so that scientists may learn more about this mysterious planet. But why mention this when it has nothing to do with timber and certainly not TRADA’s UEP?

All of these news items are significant in their own ways, but all look to the future and consider how the past has informed our journey thus far.

Continuing the UEP journey Before I took the lead, Elizabeth Turner had just completed the first five years of the UEP mission. Those first five years paved the way for greater knowledge and understanding. The link between industry and academia was forming to create a picture, a little like peering through the mysterious gas clouds, of how TRADA could combine these areas to create an even stronger economy, and to strengthen and preserve the industry. There was also a solid core base to build on,

TRADA Education

that being the lectures and support for academics, to help TRADA promote the industry to future generations. These steps were just the beginning of the UEP journey and by no means the end. Juno demonstrates that, while we continually push the boundaries of knowledge, we have to consider the long-term picture, as well as the immediate snapshot. The UEP’s mission is one of long-term planning and future anticipation.

Achievements and changes Over the past few TRADA yearbooks, readers have been informed about the various aspects of TRADA’s UEP and this year the programme has continued to connect with students and lecturers in a variety of ways. Students enjoy the lectures and always ask searching questions – about fire, local sourcing and sustainability to name just a few. These lectures are still supported by our online Academic Resources, but in moving forwards, this area is now called Learning Resources. Why change the name? Well, actually, the resources are not just for students or academics, but for everyone who wants to learn a bit more, or perhaps just to confirm a certain detail is correct as they remembered it. There has been a big uptake in use over the past two years and now more than 29,000 views of the Learning Resources homepage have been made. A good proportion of these viewers went on to look at other pages and the top five units viewed (and hopefully used) in the 2015/2016 academic year were: • Timber as a material • Introduction to timber engineering design • Timber connections • Structural characteristics of timber • Construction principles, specification and design

TRADA’s Learning Resources


The total views in 2015/16 came to more than 8,300. Students also ask queries via the dedicated email link on the website. Some of them are inevitably about access and the TRADA case studies that, pleasingly, students use a good deal as precedents of timber construction. Many of these requests are for undergraduate projects, but postgraduate students across the UK are working on a range of timber-related PhD research projects, both structural and non-structural, which are extending the boundaries of understanding as demonstrated in TRADA’s Research Summary series. However, in order to extend this accessibility to industry further, the UEP launched its TTJ Timber Innovation Award category – Innovative Timber University Research. This was conceived to encourage students to submit their work for a national competition, with the aim of raising industry awareness of the good work that students are undertaking.

Competition time Competitions also offer a great opportunity for students to learn about timber. Previous UEP work has included a competition with Coventry University on an engineering prize to design, build and test a glulam beam. During this current academic year, this competition will be opened up to four other universities making the contest more competitive and challenging. Like many of the UEP’s student competitions, this is undertaken as part of the teaching programme, in this case a module on timber and masonry structures. David Trujillo, senior lecturer at Coventry and the module coordinator, 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 – to build a glulam beam. That beam is broken and the strength and stiffness is 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. The build quality is variable with some students clearly aware of the importance of sound gluelines and clamping the laminates together to create a good product, and also the position of knots that 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, shear and the importance of knots in timber failure. The project really >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

gives the students a sound learning opportunity into the design codes and the factors of safety built into these codes, and also product manufacturing and failure modes of composite beams.

What next? Looking further ahead I feel that, if we can forge these stronger bonds between academia and industry, then with industry providing samples and ‘offcuts’ to academia, the universities would be able to conduct more experimental competition work. The outcomes of these competitions can then be fed back to industry. This symbiotic partnership is surely in everyone’s best interests, a definite win-win situation. The competitions that UEP runs in partnership with Western Timber Association with architects at University of the West of England, together with the long-running North East Timber Trade Association timber award at Northumbria University, focus on timber design. The temporary gallery project at Sheffield Hallam University, run with their architectural technologists, also focuses on timber design. These competitions that feature 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. In the forthcoming year I will be discussing with the East Anglian Timber Trade Association the idea of challenging www.trada.co.uk

their local students to put forward research proposals for the prize of a research grant. As I write this, we have yet to confirm the details, but it may shape the look of future competitions. It has been a busy, interesting and challenging first year for me, but I hope this reflection gives you the confidence that there is a bright future ahead in what is an ever-changing economic world. Please visit the Learning Resources area of the TRADA website to read the evidence and make up your own mind about this brave new world. n

TRADA Further education

“Relatively little is taught about the structural design of timber at my university, and I would imagine that is fairly typical. Why isn’t more timber engineering taught?”


ood rates highly in all our affections. Go to Switzerland or Vermont and you’ll see wooden houses – and covered wooden bridges. Figure 1 shows traditional attractive wooden buildings in the Norwegian city of Bergen, and the Mathematical Bridge at Queen’s College, Cambridge University – which, despite appearances, comprises only straight pieces of wood – is depicted in Figure 2 (overleaf). The furniture in our houses is largely wooden, of different species, and hence different colours and hues. We get very attached to it, although that feeling of wellbeing may fade for a while as we struggle to assemble flat-pack furniture. People have a lot of affinity with wood, as they allow it into their homes in the form of furniture. Steel doesn’t engender similar feelings of affection, and few people get romantic about concrete.

Timber in construction Wood and man go back a long way. Ever since a fallen tree trunk presented itself as a way of bridging a watercourse, our predecessors have been developing wood as an engineering material. It is readily available in most parts of the developed and developing world, it is renewable, and it is the only structural material that can be used in its natural form without recourse to expensive industrial processes. It has traditionally been used, in the form of timber, for structural beams and columns for low-rise buildings. Compared with other materials it has limited structural strength but is ideal for short-span beams and trusses, such as the floor beams and roof supports in our homes. Apart from this low strength, it is apparent that the dimensions of a piece of timber are limited by the length and girth of the tree trunk from which it is created. However, engineers get round both these problems by producing deep – and therefore strong – beams by a process of taking thin slices of timber and stacking them vertically and gluing the slices together to create a product called glued laminated timber – or glulam for short. Figure 3 (overleaf) shows glulam beams in the cruise terminal building in Malaga, Spain. This idea has been taken a stage further by the development of cross-laminated timber – crosslam >> www.trada.co.uk

or CLT – in which the timber slices are laid side by side in layers, with each layer orientated at right angles to the layer below. In this way floor and wall slabs of structural timber can be produced, and therefore whole houses erected in kit form – large-scale flat-pack furniture, if you will. Glulam and CLT are commonplace in timber-producing countries such as Canada and Scandinavia, but are expensive and therefore still rare in the UK. This is changing, however, and viewers of the Channel 4 television programme Grand Designs – where ordinary couples produce extraordinary homes, and usually incur eye-watering debts in the process – will have seen schemes where an entire house arrives in kit form from Germany in CLT pieces that are erected on site by a specialist workforce in a single working day. Multi-storey buildings have been produced in CLT, and although there are stability issues that need to be addressed, it is clear that CLT – and timber construction in general – is an exciting innovation that will take off in a big way over the next 50 years.

Gaps in knowledge As a university lecturer my job is to teach structural engineering to students. Relatively little is taught about the structural design of timber at my university, and I would imagine that is fairly typical. Why isn’t more timber engineering taught? No doubt Tata Steel would like to see more steel design taught, and the Concrete Centre would press for more reinforced concrete

design to be taught. And, as masonry is the most visible material in domestic construction in the UK, there is an argument that it should have greater recognition in the lecture theatre, too. The chief problem is time. Despite the fact that students famously now pay £9,250 a year at British universities, the amount of teaching time has steadily reduced over recent years, for a variety of reasons. In the second year structural design module that I teach there is only time for one twohour lecture per week over a 12-week semester to cover the teaching of all four major structural materials, that is: reinforced concrete, masonry, timber and steel. There is a bias towards concrete and steel – as it is argued, with some justification, that these are the two materials most frequently encountered by graduates in design offices – which means that timber only gets two two-hour lectures, plus some tutorial time. This only gives time for some qualitative discussion of timber, and the design of simple timber joists. I’m attempting to broaden the teaching of timber design at postgraduate level, and have recently introduced the design of glulam beams plus some discussion of CLT.

An improving picture However, things are better than they once were in this regard. Back in the 1970s I did my own undergraduate studies at a respected redbrick university. We studied reinforced concrete

design at great length, as that was the specialism of the eminent professor who taught us, who was occasionally seen on television news programmes holding forth on such topical and emotive matters as high alumina cement, which was then identified as the culprit in a number of engineering failures of the time. During his lectures we feverishly copied down the content of the slides he projected before us, which were pages from his book. Steelwork design was covered as a ‘filler’ topic after the exams in the summer term of the first year. To give some credence to this design theory we were then given the task, in pairs, of designing model steel bridges that were subsequently tested to destruction in the lab. To the best of my memory we never learned any timber design at all, so it could be argued that things have improved, however slightly. So how could the teaching of timber design be improved? If it’s not practical to increase the teaching time, maybe there are other ways of increasing students’ awareness of this versatile material. To this end I’m offering CLT as an MSc dissertation topic in the current academic year, and I www.trada.co.uk

hope at least one student will take up the challenge to develop their (and my) knowledge of this developing concept. Our students have the option of undertaking a year in industry, and a placement with a timber designer or manufacturer would increase a student’s knowledge, awareness and appreciation of the structural uses of timber. Back in the classroom, TRADA’s experts will deliver lectures to students free of charge. In 2015, TRADA’s Tim Belden gave a lecture to our MSc students on the subject of glulam – he was excellent and the lecture was very well received by the students. n

Is wood good for your health? The choice of materials we surround ourselves with could affect our well-being. Ed Suttie discusses research that suggests wood really is good.

Timber structures Well-being in buildings

“A study found that, as visual wood surfaces in a room increased, sympathetic nervous system activation was lowered, which is responsible for physiological stress responses.”


t is incredible to think that a material as ancient and widely used in our built environment as wood could have qualities that we are only just beginning to quantify. The significant impact that the built environment has on our well-being has caused us to look more closely at the materials surrounding us in our everyday lives. There is no doubt that forests are tremendous recreational assets that can contribute to our nation’s health. Exposure to nature is proven to lower blood pressure, heart rate and levels of aggression. In Japan, the medical profession has for decades prescribed shinrin-yoku (taking a walk in the forest, sometimes called ‘forest bathing’) as part of the recovery process for a number of mental health complications. Closer to home, NHS Forest is a project that aims to improve the well-being of patients recovering from surgery by increasing access to outdoor green spaces and woodlands. Memory walks are helping dementia sufferers spend time in woodlands surrounded by nature, which has a profoundly positive effect on their condition. The Woodland Trust estimates that £2.1bn would be saved from the NHS England budget in healthcare costs if every household in England was provided with good access to quality green space.1 Forests, woodlands and trees can improve our well-being even before we consider the ecosystems services provided for free, such as cleaning water and scrubbing particulates out of polluted city air. Woods can make us better, but what about the forest product, wood?

Biophilia In 1984,2 Edward Wilson expressed how humans are inherently and inextricably connected to nature; he termed it ‘biophilia’. This developed into ‘biophilic design’ as interior architects delivered a connection to nature through the design and selection of materials for interior spaces. Biophilic design proposes that a more human-centred approach to our built environment can improve many of the spaces in which we live and work, with numerous health benefits. The desire for connection to naturalness is not a romantic, anti-urbanisation campaign, it is a scientifically evidenced means of achieving psychological restoration and of maintaining positive well-being.3 >> www.trada.co.uk

Bringing trees and green space into urban areas is a direct connection and the indirect connection is by using natural elements in interiors (for example, colours and patterns that reflect nature, plants and natural materials). The materials used play an important role as a ‘proxy for nature’ through colour, texture, diversity, variation, sheen and natural form – all things that are readily associated with natural materials such as wood.

Research findings The link between wood and human health has been demonstrated clearly in studies from Japan, the US, Canada and are also emerging in Europe. A study conducted by the University of British Columbia4 refitted similar offices with different materials and measured health aspects of the occupants. It found that, as visual wood surfaces in a room increased, sympathetic nervous system activation was lowered, which is responsible for physiological stress responses. Further research from this team focused on healthcare environments and aspects of views of nature, natural lighting, indoor plants and wood in interiors.5 The research found that patients recovering from surgery in rooms with views to nature recovered faster, required less medication and felt less pain.6 Natural materials and views were connected with better patient outcomes. What is really exciting is whether wood could provide the connection to nature in parts of healthcare buildings where windows and views are not possible or are compromised. Wood in structural elements, wall panels and furniture could all make an impact in non-clinical areas. The move towards greater use of wood in healthcare environments is one practical way of connecting with the health benefits of exposure to nature. Similar improvements have been observed in schools with benefits to students, staff, the education establishment and the economy. Results included: • Children learning faster in natural light. • Classrooms with plants see improved performance in spelling, mathematics and science. • Reduction of absenteeism was recorded in schools where biophilic design principles, including wood, had been deployed.

Office environments We spend 90% of our lives in buildings, which means our health is influenced significantly by the built environment. In our typical office environment in the UK, up to 60% of staff don’t have sufficient access to daylight. The well-being of office workers is currently quantified as aspects of air quality, lighting, ventilation and thermal comfort. For example, the health and well-being credits in BREEAM are connected to volatile organic compounds and formaldehyde along with aspects of user control for light and thermal comfort. Missing from current measures is a quantification of the physiological and psychological influencing factors, which in an office environment – for occupants and the business – trigger as improved productivity, reported wellness and a reduction in days absent due to illness. Put simply, we mostly work and live disconnected from nature. More than 130 million days are lost to sickness absence every year in Great Britain and working-age ill health costs the national economy £100bn a year.7 A 1% reduction in absenteeism would convert to a saving in lost days alone of £1bn to the economy. In addition, an increase in operational productivity enabled by the way you internally fit out your office would add further benefits.

Biophilic office design In a global study of the relationship between psychological wellbeing, work environments and employee expectations, data was collected from nearly 8,000 employees in 16 countries to quantify the effect of biophilic design in the workplace.8 The results show that 47% of workers have no natural light and 58% have no plants. Yet, in offices with these features, workers report a 15% higher level of well-being and are 6% more productive with reduced absenteeism rates. In the UK responses, natural elements of light, wood and stone all had positive impacts on happiness, creativity and productivity. In a study by the World Green Building Council,9 the combination of health, well-being and productivity in offices was examined; the results suggested that office design has a significant impact on occupants and that a move beyond ‘green’ is needed to create truly sustainable buildings. As staff costs typically account for 90% of a business’s costs, the human benefits of green buildings can be quantified through: • high levels of health and well-being in staff • better retention rates • less absenteeism, and • increased business. A high-level framework for measuring a building’s impact on staff was created and is now being piloted. Elsewhere, the WELL Building Standard® in the US provides a means of monitoring the performance of building features that affect health and well-being.10 >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

Interior materials

About the author

BRE conducted a study measuring the well-being benefits of interior materials;11 the study was stimulated by a latent demand from construction professionals as a lack of clarity and guidance existed. Groups from healthcare, education and offices confirmed the significant positive impacts associated with design and materials used in refurbishment.

Ed Suttie is the Research Director in the Centre for Sustainable

On-going research in the European project Wood2New12 looks at creating a more compelling case for the use of wood-based materials in interiors. The work is exploring the many added benefits of using wood in interiors, including its ability to buffer fluctuations in relative humidity and temperature, and also the material’s sense of naturalness and calm that delivers health benefits for occupants. The growing empirical evidence of these qualities should enable future refinement of well-being measures in sustainability decision-making, such as BREEAM and LEED. A new project is being formulated at BRE to create a major office refurbishment programme to generate UKbased empirical evidence of the impacts of design and material choices on occupant health. The participation of office owners are crucial to this work. According to Debbie Hobbs, sustainability manager at Legal & General Property, the marketing of office, retail and residential property ‘will need to talk the language of health and wellbeing’ as part of the move beyond green – ‘the trick is not to get left behind’.

In practice Where practical, we should bring natural elements into our indoor environment. When considering an interior refurbishment we might typically consider changing the floor covering, furniture, wall covering, and in deeper refurbishments, the windows, doors and lighting. Therefore many opportunities exist for wood to be used. Increasing the use of wood in interiors to contribute to health benefits for occupants is very exciting, and is not the exclusive domain of top-end developments and refurbishment projects. There is no more basic intervention on refurbishing a room than the simple choice of materials. The natural progression from considering the sustainability of buildings is to measure their impact on human wellbeing. Many of us are drawn to use wood, and in the future many more will understand why they are drawn to use wood through an inherent link to nature and the associated benefits to our physical and mental health. n www.trada.co.uk

5Indoor play area Klein Dytham Architecture’s Home-for-All project in Soma City, Japan, was initiated following the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. Due to the ongoing concern about radiation levels, children cannot play outside, so the building was designed as an indoor play area for toddlers aged 0-4 and aims to make the children feel as though they are playing in a forest. Conceived as a large straw hat, the structure is held aloft by cross-laminated timber columns that have been designed to resemble trees.



Squire and Partners revived traditional building techniques and combined them with contemporary details to create a workshop for St James’ School in Ashford, Kent. The exterior is clad with black-stained wooden boards, while inside the wooden frame is left exposed but has been infilled with birch-faced plywood panels.

“The nature of the building suggested that the material for the structure would be domestic in scale, would emanate warmth yet be sustainable; timber was the obvious choice.”


hen the late Maggie Keswick Jencks was diagnosed with cancer, she resolved to do something to help others who had the same diagnosis, to create a place of refuge for them where they would find practical and emotional support in a non-institutional environment. It was a blueprint for a new type of care, and one that places great value on the power of architecture to lift the spirits and play a part in the process of therapy.

There are now more than 20 Maggie’s Centres in the UK and abroad; the latest, designed by Foster + Partners, is in Manchester, close to the Christie Hospital, which is a specialist in cancer treatment. The centre is a building with a long, low profile, with a delicate timber lattice structure; its scale and domestic character reflect the surrounding suburban houses and offer a welcoming and non-clinical environment. It is set in a sunny garden where plants and trees lift the spirits and contrast with the necessarily clinical atmosphere of the nearby oncology unit.

Bringing the outside, in The plan is informal; there are no corridors or main entrance, and patients wander through the garden to walk into the heart of the building, the kitchen, the central table and the fireside. A gently sloping roof extends outwards on its long east and west elevations to create verandas and courtyards. Although the centre is largely single storey, the roof rises at mid point to create a mezzanine level, naturally illuminated by triangular roof lights and supported by lightweight timber lattice beams. The beams act as natural partitions between different internal areas, visually dissolving the architecture into the surrounding gardens.

The centre combines a variety of spaces, from intimate private niches to a library, exercise rooms and places to gather and share a cup of tea. Support spaces are placed on the mezzanine positioned on top of a wide central spine, with toilets and storage spaces below, maintaining natural visual connections across the building. Throughout the centre there is a focus on natural light, greenery and garden views. Small courtyards on the east side are private external spaces leading from counselling >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

or treatment rooms; on the west side are more open, public spaces that extend into the garden as verandas. All of these spaces open up to the garden through large, full-height sliding glass doors. The south end of the building extends into a greenhouse, a garden retreat, and a space for people to gather and enjoy the therapeutic qualities of nature and the outdoors.

The design of the structure In common with all Foster + Partners’ buildings, the design is a synthesis of the brief, the structure and the choice of materials. This is clear from Norman Foster’s earliest sketches of the structure – a delicate filigree of timber elements that resemble the extended skeleton of a bird with its wings

outstretched at the sides. Within this sketch are contained all the elements of the plan – low in scale to respond to the suburban context, long on the east and west elevations to link to the surrounding garden landscape, and with a central spine that encloses space for administration and services. The nature of the building suggested that the material for the structure would be domestic in scale, would emanate warmth yet be sustainable; timber was the obvious choice. The structure is exposed throughout the building and consists of laminated veneer lumber (LVL) trusses, each with a set of diagonally opposed double web elements, creating a delicate filigree of timber. A series of LVL trusses form the central spine; they are set on the diagonal and rise to the ridge, where the spaces between them are infilled with triangular glazed roof lights. At their bases, each pair of diagonal trusses meets at a triangular LVL node; this connects them to the LVL column below and also to an LVL truss beam that cantilevers outwards to support the gently sloping roof, supported at its end by a slender steel column. All the trusses taper to reflect the magnitude and orientation of the forces acting on them – any portion that is superfluous has been removed. Analysis of the stresses caused by wind load (sideways) and snow and dead load (vertically) indicated where the timber could be optimised. The 7.5m-long cantilever roof trusses taper as the bending forces reduce towards to the cantilever tip, through the column to the pin connection at the ground, and at the central node >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

above the spine. The ends of the top and bottom flanges become solid as the shear force increases along the section. The node is a key component of the structure, the point where vertical loads from the roof are transferred to the 3.1m-high columns below. The node also acts as a portal frame haunch to provide the rigidity required to resist the horizontal wind forces that act across the structure.

cut to create the two sets of diagonal web flanges; all the layers were then dowelled and glued together to form the final truss. Likewise, the LVL layers of the truss columns and the cantilevered beams were extended at the ends to create the triangular node; during construction the column layer of the node slots between the cantilever truss layers of the node, in a manner similar to a halved timber joint.

The use of LVL creates a sophisticated piece of engineering – strong and lightweight – yet with all the warm tones and domestic qualities that timber provides. The trusses were produced from Kerto® LVL provided by Metsä Wood – 3mm-thick rotary-cut sustainable Nordic spruce veneers bonded to form a continuous board and cut to suit the required basic shape. These were transported to the factory of timber specialist Blumer-Lehmann in Switzerland where they were CNC cut to form the series of tapered layers that make up each truss. ‘By studying the process’ explains Darron Haylock, project architect, ‘we were able to maximise opportunities to refine it.’ For instance, although all of the LVL layers that make up a single tapered truss follow a consistent perimeter profile, two inner layers were specially

All fixings between the trusses are concealed; a metal Y-shaped strap along the top of each cantilever truss connected it to the diagonal roof trusses.

The desire to create a homely environment, in contrast to the institutional space of a clinic, defined the approach to the building environmental design; natural ventilation, daylighting and radiant floors provide a comfortable environment within a low-energy building. Passive design elements, such as the deep roof overhang, help to shade the building from excessive solar gain during the summer and capture the low winter sun – thus minimising energy consumption. >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

The sustainability of the building in use was also considered, with water efficient fixtures, waste separation and a greenhouse. Sustainably sourced Nordic spruce was the material used for the Kerto® LVL trusses. Whole logs were used in the manufacturing process of Kerto®, ensuring minimal waste. The fabrication of the trusses in the Blumer-Lehmann factory offered all the advantages of timber prefabrication – fast and efficient construction, elimination of wet trades and a superior pre-finished product. The waste material generated in the fabrication of the trusses was used as fuel to heat the factory. n

National Structural Timber Specification – one year on

The National Structural Timber Specification (NSTS ) was published in September 2015 and, one year on, professionals in the sector agree it was long overdue. Both the steel and concrete industries already had national specification publications – in fact, the steel industry’s ‘black book’ is already into its fifth edition. Greg Cooper discusses the importance of the NSTS.

Timber structures NSTS

“It is not only designers and specifiers who have welcomed the publication of the NSTS, here at B & K Structures the NSTS has helped us to develop a clear understanding of each professional’s role in the construction of the building.”


t is fair to say the timber industry has been playing catch up and now we are on par with other structural materials. The lack of detailed information was potentially a barrier to specification. Way back at the ProTimber Summit at Timber Expo in 2013, keynote speaker, Peter Caplehorn, then technical director of Scott Brownrigg, outlined the issues faced by industry professionals when specifying timber. In his address, Caplehorn suggested that, although engineered timber was often the preferred option, due to the lack of technical performance data, steel or concrete was specified in its place. The National Structural Timber Specification (NSTS) was an ambitious TRADA initiative to support the rapid increase in the use of timber as a core structural component. The guide has raised the profile of structural timber applications across all construction sectors. By providing detailed guidance on such matters as durability and lifecycle analysis to responsibility for specification and quality management systems, construction professionals can gain a better understanding of the scope and performance parameters of structural timber solutions. With all this detailed information available in one reference source, timber design and specification no longer demands a bespoke approach.

A much-needed benchmark The NSTS provides assurances by setting a minimum standard and acts as a benchmark for the construction industry to work to. The clear manufacturing tolerances outlined by the NSTS also actively promote the use of Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) and permit building information modelling (BIM) to be fully realised. These detailed parameters result in BIM models that make it off the drawing board, and can be transformed from a digital concept into buildings that can be manufactured and erected. BIM is facilitating a culture of innovation and collaboration that assists the adoption of DfMA. The efforts made to create highly detailed, data-rich, fabrication-quality models, which bring together many design disciplines and the design work of manufacturers and specialist subcontractors, will continue to deliver better outcomes year-on-year. It is rapidly becoming the norm that >> www.trada.co.uk

a client expects to procure a project design team or contractor that uses innovative digital design-to-construction processes. The number of construction innovation questions in tender documents continues to increase along with their complexity. These allow innovators to differentiate themselves from their competition, as BIM on its own becomes less of a differentiator.

An evolving publication The NSTS currently focuses on structural uses of softwood timber in buildings to which national building regulations apply. The first edition of the NSTS is only the start; this document will evolve and adapt as the industry innovates and new solutions are developed. Future editions of the NSTS will incorporate other structural timber solutions such as hardwoods.

Long-term impact on the timber industry

Those who consider DfMA as part of their BIM processes, who examine innovative ways of using digital tools to transition more effectively from design to construction and adopt more collaborative ways of working, will secure more work. By developing solutions that are ‘assembled’ rather than ‘constructed’, DfMA offers the prospect of using fewer people on site – addressing skills shortages and reducing health and safety risks.

Developing a clear understanding The mantra of the offsite timber sector is ‘cost and programme certainty’. The NSTS takes this one step further by facilitating certainty for designers on what is achievable in timber and allows constructors to understand the build tolerance and sequence to ensure close interface details such as fire and acoustic design details – thereby addressing the performance gap issue, too. But it is not only designers and specifiers who have welcomed the publication of the NSTS, here at B & K Structures the NSTS has helped us to develop a clear understanding of each professional’s role in the construction of the building.

The NSTS creates an evolving legacy for the timber industry that will further increase take-up and ensure timber is always considered alongside other more mainstream materials. The NSTS will help to improve the competitiveness of the timber industry by making it easier for timber to be used under national building regulations, and enable timber to compete with concrete and steel alternatives, as well as act as a guide for contractors, suppliers and clients alike. n

Construction is a collaborative process with many remote teams working together, often for the first time, which can prove problematic. Now the NSTS offers clear parameters by providing the information required by all parties, to ensure we are all on the proverbial ‘same page’. These parameters, for example, enable follow-on trades to order and prepare other materials such as windows with confidence and make agreements with main contractors on the handovers of the structure more unified. www.trada.co.uk

Timber structures Timber flitch beams

Dynamic response of timber flitch beams

Through experimental analysis, James Norman, Joel Ross, Robbie Kirkbride and Toby Hill-Smith outline the damping exhibited in these complex beams.


timber flitch beam is a composite beam made of two timber joists with a steel plate sandwiched in between. The three are bolted or nailed together horizontally.

Timber flitch beams are mainly used for the refurbishment of old timber structures, such as listed buildings, where the addition of the steel plate stiffens the existing timber members without significantly altering their appearance. However, timber flitch beams can also be used in new-build construction where a transfer of load, such as in trimmer joists, or particularly long span, is required. Design guidance is available for the design of timber flitch beams,1 but the dynamic analysis is not currently covered. One of the considerations in the design for vibration is the peak acceleration, which is affected by damping. While timber has an approximate damping ratio of about 1%, steel has a ratio of as little as 0.05%, although 0.5% is typically used in design to allow for friction in connections.2 This article explores whether either of these damping ratios is appropriate for a flitch beam, or whether the composite action leads to a different damping ratio altogether.

Dynamic response and natural frequency When a system is loaded dynamically there is far more to consider for design than with static loads. For an object subjected to dynamic loading, the key properties are mass, stiffness and damping.3 The dynamic response is not simply an equilibrium of the internal moments and shears and the external load of a system, the response is actually hysteretic, so these internal forces must also be in equilibrium with the inertial forces that oppose the accelerations being created through motion. Damping Damping occurs in some way in all dynamic systems. It is the mechanism by which the energy of the system is dissipated and as such causes the vibrations to diminish in amplitude. This experiment is predominantly affected by the mechanisms known as viscous and Coulomb damping and the internal friction of the beam. Viscous damping is the mechanism that dissipates energy at a rate proportional to the velocity of the mass it is damping.4 It is present in all materials and is the internal force that acts to www.trada.co.uk

diminish vibrations. In comparison, Coulomb damping is the mechanism that dissipates energy through sliding friction. It has been stated that the force generated by the movement of two surfaces causes friction and acts opposite to the direction of motion.5 What sets the flitch beam apart from a normal beam is the variance in stiffness between the timber and steel of which it is composed. This variance in stiffness potentially produces additional damping mechanisms in the beam.

Experimental set-up A timber flitch beam was set up in the lab supported on scaffold poles. The original intention was to create pinned supports, but early experiments using just the timber joists showed that the beam would bounce on the support and hence a top support was added to clamp the beam, producing semi-rigid support conditions. The accelerations of the joists were measured with a calibrated MEMS (micro-electro mechanical system) accelerometer. There are many different forms of dynamic loading. For this experiment an impulsive load in the form of a hammer strike was chosen to excite the beam. In theory, the hammer strike excites all frequencies at the same time and then allows the beam to vibrate freely so the damping properties of the beam can be analysed. A number of assumptions were made to simplify the calculations and the analysis of the data. It was assumed that the beam was linear and that all properties were uniform.6 >>

Experimental results

For this mechanism to work the bolts must be suitably tensioned. It has been noted that, under higher tensions, the timber beams and steel plate slip against each other less easily and behave increasingly as a composite beam.7

Linear damping ratio trend line Displacement

Friction can occur in a flitch (or any composite) beam when the timber and steel elements displace different amounts during loading. These experiments aim to determine whether friction is occurring between the timber and the steel, which would produce Coulomb damping in addition to viscous damping.

non-linear. This is shown in Figure 3 by the blue and red lines respectively. As this beam dissipates the initial energy more rapidly, the tail end results begin to plateau. This is because the damping ratio has become smaller due to the displacements and velocities of the beam being so small.

Once the beam had been struck the acceleration of the beam was recorded. To find the velocity and displacement results of the beam the acceleration data set were integrated. To minimise drift a second order Butterworth filter was applied for each integration. The flitch beam had a target frequency of between 2Hz and 8Hz. This range was selected as it is the most noticeable by people.8 Due to space limitations the beam length was limited, so a beam with a calculated natural frequency of f = 8.59Hz was finally used. The beam was composed of two identical pieces of 68mm x 32mm C24 softwood, and timbers with a 50mm x 5mm mild steel plate inbetween. The beam was 4m long. The bolt holes were 6.5mm diameter and were staggered to conform to standard practice.

Damping ratio

Figure 2: Calculating stiffness of the beam. Photo: Š James Norman

A logarithmic scale was used for the damping ratios and Figure 4 clearly displays two regions where the logarithmic damping ratios are relatively constant. The higher step of damping ratios (roughly Îś = 2.1%) occurs as the beam is vibrating at a force above the slip excitation level between the timber and the steel. Slip is where the interfaces will rub against each other and therefore will lead to the presence of friction. When the friction force can no longer be overcome the elements stick together and act as a single composite. There is a distinct transition between the two steps where the beam is vibrating at the critical slip level and once this has passed the damping ratio plateaus at around Îś = 0.6%. For the initial vibrations design guidelines suggest that lightweight timber floors, such as the one used in this experiment, should have a damping ratio of 1%.9 This figure approximately matches the lower damping ratio where Coulomb damping is not present, but for large amplitude vibration we can see that a higher damping ratio could be used. >>

The initial acceleration vs time graph was processed into a displacement vs time graph, as shown by Figure 3. Figure 3 clearly displays evidence of linear damping for roughly the first second of the response, and then after this turns to exponential decay as the damping becomes www.trada.co.uk

This research has explored the dynamic response of timber flitch beams through experimental analysis. Through experimental results, it could be suggested that Coulomb damping is being exhibited in timber flitch beams compared to a normal timber beam.

The flitch beam damping ratio data displayed an initial linear damping ratio of roughly 2%. This value is present for the largest amplitudes and would therefore be the most reasonable for the consideration of human perception. This research has shown that the dynamic response of timber flitch beams is non-linear, in both stiffness and damping. However, for matters of perception, which is an inherently vague area, the difference between a linear and non-linear design is marginal. Therefore, flitch beams can be treated as linear, with a damping ratio of 2%10 in comparison to a design damping ratio of 1% for timber11 and roughly 0.04% for steel.12 Treating the flitch beam linearly serves as a far more practical and convenient guideline. The increased damping ratio could have design benefits for construction as it would allow for longer spans to be used while keeping floor vibrations within acceptable levels. This benefit could be demonstrated by using a damping ratio of 2% with a published forcing function, in order to show that certain vibrations can be kept within an acceptable level for timber flitch beams. n

Timber structures Hybrid construction

Timber hybrid construction – an engineer’s perspective From straightforward projects to complex design briefs, hybrid construction is gaining momentum. Andrew Wylie outlines the rise of hybridisation


ombining more than one material is something craftsmen, engineers and architects have been doing for generations to join the properties of different materials, creating a system or product that has a performance greater that its constituent part. Cob wall or masonry panelled houses are good historic examples of a hybrid form of construction. A more recent example is reinforced concrete, which is a modern engineering system that many people will be familiar with. The compressive properties of concrete are combined with steel – a material that has high tension capacity – to create a hybrid structural system. Timber is at an exciting stage of development and rising popularity that is seeing new engineered timber products being combined with other structural materials to generate efficient, dynamic and exciting buildings and structures. Boundaries are being pushed by architectural aspiration, reducing costs and construction certainty – to name just a few drivers. Hybridisation with timber occurs at different scales, with timber taking on different roles in a structural building system.

Timber as a displacement material A simple way of using a greater quantity of timber in a building is to consider how timber can replace common structural materials generating project benefits. A good example of this is the use of cross-laminated timber (CLT) floor slab panels in a steel frame. The timber replaces the heavier, more carbonintensive concrete floors, creating a lighter structural solution. This approach of material replacement allows timber to be used in a way that can be accommodated in traditional structural framing solutions with a limited design impact. However, it does bring the benefit of creating a lighter steel frame reduced foundation loads, while maximising the offsite fabrication process. The transformation of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratfordupon-Avon was the first time this approach was adopted in the UK, and brought cost and programme benefits to the project. The lighter structural solution allowed an additional floor to be constructed that loaded the retained historic Victorian theatre walls.

Timber steel hybrids with steel as a facilitator material Timber has been used in recent years to create some truly inspirational, complex roof structures. By combining straight timber elements with steel connection nodes, double-curved geometrical surfaces can be efficiently generated. Steel nodes allow for high connection forces to be transferred between timber elements in an unobtrusive way. Flitches in the jointing show that a uniform and efficient construction rationale has been developed.

A great example of this approach to the use of timber and steel is the Exeter Forum nodal gridshell. Timber was chosen by the client as a low-carbon material, helping the client meet its sustainability targets. The unobtrusive steel nodes facilitate the complex geometry and transfer of significant connection forces that arise from a flatter form of shell geometry. Where the timber member loads become too high, a steel flitch is used to reinforce the timber members. >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

Maximising the use of timber through hybridisation New timber products, such as CLT, combined with not-so-new products, such as glulam, have been revolutionising the timber construction market, allowing timber structures to be considered where previously thought not possible. By combining with a limited quantity of steel members or elements, longer spans, structural transfers and other challenges can be overcome, allowing timber to provide a convincing proposal. This approach of maximising the use of timber is becoming more frequently called upon by clients to support their sustainability agenda. There is an increasing list of projects where the carbon stored in the building structure has been argued to offset planning requirements for onsite renewable technologies. A great example of this are the Banyan Wharf apartments in Hackney, London. Following in the footsteps of several other multi-storey CLT residential towers in Hackney (Stadhaus and Bridport House), Banyan Wharf combines steel and CLT panels to accommodate a new, more complex arrangement of residential floors of more than ten storeys (nine of which comprise a CLT structure). By using steel framing where necessary, a twisting floor plan is constructed, maximising external terraces and outside space as the building rises from the canal basin it is founded in. The lighter structural frame resulted in material and cost savings in the foundations. www.trada.co.uk

The future Timber and concrete composite floor systems are starting to be investigated, with a composite concrete topping providing added stiffness, increased acoustic separation and additional thermal mass. This approach of using screws or expanded metal laths is something familiar to our European neighbours where this technique is used to stiffen historic timber floors. The future for timber hybrid construction is very bright; engineers and architects are pushing the boundaries of design, requiring more creative timber solutions. Complex parametric computer modelling is driving structural efficiency in increasingly complex architectural forms, while timber products are being developed to meet a renewed appetite for timber in buildings. n

“Using solid timber panels in a platform construction approach means each floor plate supports a wall panel that then supports the next floor plate and so on.”


peed is an important pre-requisite in construction: building in cities especially can require many deliveries to site with attendant traffic delays causing sequencing and on-site storage problems. A building whose structure is largely comprised of engineered timber beams, panels and cassettes: • can require many fewer vehicle deliveries than heavier materials such as panelled or in-situ concrete • is easier and quicker to offload, and • importantly in urban situations, can be completed with relatively little noise. Speed in erection, too, is of immense value – using solid timber panels in a platform construction approach means each floor plate supports a wall panel that then supports the next floor plate and so on. Lifting panels directly from trucks into position rather than to on-site storage areas means not only that tight urban sites can be developed quickly but also that, as the building rises, other trades can be brought on sooner to work on levels of the building already in place. Modern timber technology also requires less on-site equipment and fewer construction staff to be involved in the assembly process. Advance planning of the beam and panel arrangements by experienced timber engineers is crucial to the way in which the vertical loads are distributed through the structure, while the basic method of fixing panels involves relatively simple connections. In all of this, little, if any, on-site modification is required to the prefabricated panels (presuming well-considered advance planning and design has taken place), the result being minimal on-site waste.

Material benefits However, it is in the lighter weight of the overall structure that one of the most important urban benefits is to be found: in London, many of the available sites lie above 19th-Century brick sewers or underground transportation routes, making conventional deep pile foundations impracticable. Engineered timber structures have the great advantage of being capable of erection on lighter foundations – a cost saving in itself – and thus on otherwise difficult-to-develop sites. >> www.trada.co.uk

There are significant benefits to be had from the use of solid timber technology in three other important areas: 1. The need for fewer additional layers of building materials, such as internal wall linings and ceilings, in situations and regulatory environments where it is possible to leave the internal panel surfaces exposed. 2. Aside from the reduced costs and timescale savings that come with this, there are valuable thermal advantages to be gained due to the material’s inherent insulating qualities.

of erection, limited deliveries, low noise during construction and minimal waste generated all added to the attractions of this approach to building in the city, and Hackney has since become something of a world epicentre for dense urban residential structures formed from CLT. Most of these are within the eight-to-ten storey range, but the fact that they are there at all – in a city where the Building Acts are predicated on the Great Fire of London in 1666 – is testament to how far the product has come in a relatively short period of time. >>

3. The exposed surfaces can offer improved internal air quality due to the hygroscopic nature of the timber. However, the biggest environmental gain from the use of crosslaminated timber (CLT) and other engineered timber products is in the ability of solid wood to sequester substantial amounts of atmospheric carbon dioxide throughout the building’s life.

Breaking boundaries Until 2008, when the nine-storey Stadthaus was completed in the east London Borough of Hackney, the development of timber construction – particularly in the UK – had been based upon platform frame technology, a method of building that is effective up to seven storeys in height. The Stadthaus’s eight storeys of CLT arranged in a honeycomb structure above a single-storey masonry plinth – designed by architects Waugh Thistleton and engineers Techniker – removed this limitation forever. This residential building ticked many boxes for the local authority, not the least being its carbon credentials. Speed www.trada.co.uk

By mid-2009, the world of timber engineering was beginning to deliver on the imagined possibilities, with the Limnologen complex of four towers, each eight-storeys high, constructed at Växjö in Sweden, employing a hybrid glulam post and beam structure with CLT floors, walls and cores above first-floor level. Around the same time, another CLT – Holz8 – was being completed at Bad Aibling in Germany as a pilot project intended to test the merits of mass timber construction and energy efficiency. This eight-storey building had a concrete core, but the ten-storey Forté Building, designed and constructed by Lendlease in Melbourne, Australia, in 2012, eschewed this solution and used imported CLT (manufactured by KLH) for all elements, including stair shafts and elevator core.

Indeed, Vancouver-based architect Michael Green was commissioned by the Canadian Wood Council to produce Tall Wood (2012), a downloadable research report that explored the possibility of commercial buildings up to 20 storeys in height being formed from hybrids of glulam and CLT. Tall Wood not only indicated the potential for mass timber structures in building types other than residential, but has also driven the architect himself to follow up with proposals for 30- and 35-storey towers in Vancouver and Paris respectively, as well as to produce designs for entire urban districts comprised of tall timber structures. The idea of vertical timber cities is now eminently realisable.

New possibilities

However, the endeavour in North America is not confined to Canada; The ‘Tall Wood Building Prize to Innovate Building Construction’ was launched as an architectural design competition in October 2014 as part of the Obama administration’s commitment to mitigating climate change in the US. This focused heavily on CLT and other emerging timber technologies. With a prize of $2m available, the process produced two winners and 12-storey timber towers are now underway in both Portland and New York. In addition, there is currently a bill in front of the US Senate ‘to accelerate the use of wood in buildings, especially tall wood buildings, and for other purposes’. If enacted, it will enter the legislative domain as the Timber Innovation Act of 2016. >>

Moving beyond the ten-storey level has taken a little longer, but quantum leaps in the design of vertical timber structures are now emerging. At the time of writing, the 14-storey Treet Building in Bergen, completed in 2015, is the world’s tallest residential timber building. The title will, however, shortly pass to the 18-storey Brock Commons Student Residence at the University of British Columbia when it opens for business in summer 2017. The lead in this particular race is shifting to Canada due to the determination of its forest and timber-processing sector to take advantage of technological developments that can incrementally increase the value of the vast resource of raw material they have available to them. www.trada.co.uk

Back in Europe, designs for a plethora of tall, engineered timber buildings are in process: • four 20-storey apartment blocks for Stockholm’s waterfront proposed by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter • the 24-storey HoHo tower in Vienna designed by RLP Rüdiger Lainer + Partner, and • the 34-storey Västerbroplan residential tower in Stockholm by C.F. Møller. In each instance, the boundaries of timber engineering are being pushed ever further, but the example that perhaps takes this endeavour to a completely new level is the Barbican Oak project in the City of London, a research project exploring the possibility of building up to 80 storeys in timber and initiated by London-based PLP Architecture, Smith and Wallwork Engineers in Cambridge, and the Department of Architecture, University of Cambridge. Discussed elsewhere in this yearbook, it is undoubtedly provocative, but it nevertheless raises many engineering, wood science and other technical questions, the response to which may well expand the boundaries of engineered timber technology and manufacture far beyond current understanding and industry capacity.

What next? Where things go next is the $64k question. The modern world of engineered timber products and advanced timber engineering is the direct result of innovative research and development that has pushed scientific and technical understanding of these subjects into completely new areas. To date, most applications of these new products and systems have been applied in traditional, orthogonal ways, but the latest technological developments suggest not only that completely different building forms are possible, but also that the standardised panel is not the only route to the future; bespoke panels manufactured in response to the design imagination are already being discussed to move beyond the present situation in which designers learn to work within the limitations of the existing factory product. Time will tell how far these technologies can advance, but the speed of transformation to date suggests the prediction of Professor Alex de Rijke of the Royal College of Art that ‘timber is the concrete of the 21st Century’ is closer than ever before to being fulfilled. n

“The use of timber as a structural material in tall buildings is an area of emerging interest for its variety of potential benefits; the most obvious being that it is a renewable resource, unlike prevailing construction methods that use concrete and steel.”


LP Architecture has recently been involved in a research project on tall timber buildings, together with the Centre for Natural Material Innovation (NMI) at Cambridge University and engineering firm Smith and Wallwork. The project offered an opportunity to bring researchers and designers from various disciplines together in order to reimagine what is possible with wood as a structural material. In so doing, the project was able to overcome many of the traditional barriers faced in bringing innovation in timber building design, which is often dominated by manufacturers alone, or by single disciplines. A strong driver for the increasing use of timber in the built environment is its potential to moderate the relationship between people and their urban surroundings. As Kevin Flanagan, Partner at PLP Architecture observes, ‘We now live predominantly in cities and so the Timber Tower proposals have been designed to improve our wellbeing in an urban context. Timber buildings have the potential architecturally to create a more pleasing, relaxed, sociable and creative urban experience. Our firm is currently designing many of London’s tall buildings, and the use of timber could transform the way we build in this city.’

Pioneers PLP Architecture has created some of the world’s most sustainable and smart buildings – spaces that have redefined what it means to live, work and collaborate in the digital age. It is fascinated by the potential of timber both aesthetically and structurally. The NMI works at the interface of architecture, engineering, materials and construction. PLP Architecture chose to work with the NMI because of its pioneering research into new materials, and its expertise in the area of timber buildings. Smith and Wallwork combine both new and traditional engineering technologies to create economic designs that are bespoke to each project. Smith and Wallwork’s previous experience with timber made them an obvious partner for the project. While engineered timber products have become increasingly common in low-rise construction, their use in tall and supertall buildings is not yet well understood. Furthermore, it was not clear that there were any practising designers with experience of tall timber building design at anything approaching 300m >> www.trada.co.uk

Structural advantages As a structural material, timber has excellent specific strength and stiffness. This means that, when the strength and stiffness are compared to the mass of material used, timber performs similarly to steel and far better than concrete. Concrete buildings for example have a typical bulk density (an approximate measure determined by dividing a building’s mass by its gross volume) of approximately 300kg/m3, while steel buildings, which usually have concrete floors, typically have a mass of about 160kg/ m3. In contrast, a timber building with timber floors, such as the Timber Tower, may have a mass of little more than 70kg/m3.

tall. For this reason, Dr Michael Ramage, director of the NMI, established the Super Tall Timber research programme, funded by the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, bringing teams of leading designers together with the research capabilities of the NMI in order to explore the possibilities afforded by engineered timber for the construction of tall and supertall buildings. As part of this research programme, Dr Ramage invited PLP Architecture and Smith and Wallwork engineers to collaborate on the first of these projects: the Timber Tower.

Benefits of using timber Regardless of the rights and wrongs of this trend with respect to steel and concrete buildings, it is very clear that, in the case of timber, there is both an opportunity and a benefit to revealing the structural material. It is well recognised anecdotally (and scientific evidence is beginning to emerge) that people respond in a very positive way to exposed wood. While there is no direct evidence that people distinguish between structural and nonstructural wood in this regard, it is hard not to feel that exposure to the working material is rather more interesting, and more authentic, than exposure to purely decorative timber finishes. The use of timber as a structural material in tall buildings is an area of emerging interest for its variety of potential benefits; the most obvious being that it is a renewable resource, unlike prevailing construction methods that use concrete and steel. The research is also investigating other potential benefits, such as reduced costs and improved construction timescales, increased fire resistance, and significant reduction in the overall weight of buildings. The conceptual proposals currently being developed would create more than 1,000 new residential units in a 1 million sq ft mixed-use tower and mid-rise terraces in central London, integrated within the Barbican. www.trada.co.uk

Alongside the potential benefits, this reduction in building mass presents new challenges with regard to uplift forces and responses to wind or seismic excitation. However, the material savings are very considerable and the opportunities to reduce foundations or reuse existing foundations are very significant. As buildings get taller, the overturning moment at the base increases by a power of two, and deflection at the top of the building increases by a power of four. This means that supertall building design is often governed by the design of the lateral load resisting system. It is generally desirable for a building to be capable of resisting overturning under the strongest lateral loads due to its self-weight alone, and for it to be capable of resisting normal service loads without undergoing load reversal. Since supertall buildings are usually rather slender – typically having slenderness ratios greater than seven – they are geometrically disadvantaged in resisting overturning moments. In order to mitigate this fundamental geometrical disadvantage, it is important to direct the vertical loads in the building into the lateral load resisting system and to position the lateral load resisting system as close to the perimeter of the building as possible. The reduced mass of a timber building, compared to a conventional steel or concrete building, means that the permanent vertical loads that can be relied upon to resist overturning are commensurately reduced. This means that directing self-weight effectively to a perimeter lateral load resisting system is particularly important. >>

Design details

Future steps

The mega-columns and mega-bracing elements that make up the buttressed mega-truss structure are designed using glued laminated timber at an extraordinary scale. Columns in excess of 2m2 are required at the lower levels. Glued laminated softwood timber was chosen for the main structural elements, both because of the availability of the material – Timber Tower would use some 65,000 m3 of structural timber – and because of its favourable specific strength and stiffness in comparison with steel.

The next phase of the Timber Tower research will be an ambitious series of experimental studies carried out in the University of Cambridge’s Structures Research Lab in order to understand the behaviour of timber elements constructed for use on a scale thought to be unprecedented in buildings. These results will then be fed back into the design process, allowing the structural design to be further improved.

The huge timber elements are protected from the elements by the building facade, allowing the structural elements to be designed to higher stresses, protecting the structural members from the vagaries of the British weather, and allowing the occupants to interact with the working material that characterises the building’s expression. The great size and spacing of the mega-truss elements also plays a key role in the fire strategy of the building. Under fire conditions, the outer surface of thick timber elements begins to char, forming a protective layer insulating the working timber underneath. The key structural timber elements are thus expected to maintain their structural integrity in the presence of a serious and extended fire, even without other forms of protection. Active fire-suppression systems would, of course, also be required in a building of this height, regardless of structural material. While further fire engineering of the Timber Tower concept is ongoing, the initial indications are that the structural strategy adopted provides a sound basis for further design. www.trada.co.uk

Dr Ramage understands the scale of the challenges ahead but remains cautiously optimistic: ‘We’ve designed the architecture and engineering and demonstrated it will stand, but this is at a scale no one has attempted to build before. We are developing a new understanding of primary challenges in structure and construction. There is a lot of work ahead, but we are confident of meeting all the challenges before us.’ PLP Architecture is also currently working on further proposals for a 31-storey timber building for a site in western Europe, together with the University of Cambridge and Smith and Wallwork. n

“Correctly designed and installed CLT is suitable for use in service class 1 and 2 conditions as indicated by the CLT manufacturer’s CE certificates.”


ross-laminated timber (CLT) is a compelling design and build proposition for structures in the UK. The market share in the use of the product can be demonstrated by reference to trade publications and building awards, not just in the UK and Europe but increasingly so in the US and Canada. CLT is relatively new, with its initial development in the 1990s to a full supply chain offer for single-storey to 15-storey developments some 20 years later. As is common with new products, the uptake is in advance of specific dedicated engineering codes, standards and guidance documents. This does not mean that CLT cannot be used, but there will always be some debate while it is specifically outside of a code and standard where first principle timber engineering approaches are needed. There are now industry-recognised strategies and company guidance that has evolved to provide best practice and draft code clauses.

Compliance with standards CE-marked panels CLT is a wood panel typically consisting of three, five or seven layers of dimension timber oriented at right angles to one another and then glued to form structural panels. CLT typically forms the structural wall, floor or roof elements of buildings. CE marking of CLT is possible through the harmonised European Standard, BS EN 16351:2015 – Timber structures – Cross laminated timber – Requirements. The CE mark can only be applied to CLT once: • compliance to the harmonised standard is demonstrated • a Notified Body has successfully audited the factory production control system in place and issued the CE certificate, and • the Declaration of Performance has been drawn up by the manufacturer. >>

CLT applications – use class to BS 8417 When considering the durability of timber structures, one of the most obvious points is to ensure that the product does not have high levels of moisture that will cause the wood to decay with consequent structural failure. In the UK we are covered by the British Standard that still stands in the current days of EN standards. BS 8417:2011+A1:2014 Preservation of wood – Code of practice is the British Standard that presents recommendations and guidance for the preservative treatment of wood to provide protection against bio deterioration in end-use situations. It gives recommendations for determining the need for treatment. The use of the CLT as a wood-based material would fall into this code. However, the code was written at a period when CLT was not considered to be a standard structural option as it is today. Careful review of BS 8417:2011 is needed to identify whether the CLT structure being considered requires preservative treatment or not. The approach to determine if CLT requires treatment is based on use class consideration. For finished buildings, the CLT is typically on the room side of insulation, which in simple terms means the CLT is on the warm side. In this respect the use class is UC1 (see Figure 1).

CLT applications – service class to BS EN 1995-1-1 Correctly designed and installed CLT is suitable for use in service class 1 and 2 conditions as indicated by the CLT manufacturer’s CE certificates. Service class in accordance with Eurocode 5 (BS EN 1995-11:2004+A2:2014, clause is used to provide engineers with the correct factors and understanding of the moisture conditions of wood structures during the life of the structure. A service class does not necessarily take into account the impact of the construction phase where moisture can get locked in if inappropriate site control is allowed. Service class 1 conditions are for timbers that are within the building envelope that are not exposed to external humidity and temperatures, but are generally heated to keep the timber in a dry condition at 12% moisture content or below. Service class 2 applications are those where timber can be in contact with external humidity and temperatures, but are not exposed to direct wetting, such as timber balcony structures or parapet walls protected from direct rain exposure by waterproofing membranes and claddings. The use of CLT in this environment requires additional consideration and review for durability when untreated material is used. www.trada.co.uk

Figure 1: CLT in buildings on the warm side of the insulation is service class 1 for design and use class 1 for durability considerations

Moisture and CLT panels in the use of a building Correctly detailed and constructed CLT walls and roof components are protected from water ingress. The advice for non-preservative treated CLT is to ensure the external walls and roofs are designed as ‘warm’ construction as the CLT is on the internal face of the insulation so there is no condensation risk to the CLT. As with all designs, an interstitial >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

condensation check will be needed on the make up as a whole to ensure the appropriate insulation is specified. It is also important to protect CLT from wetting that may be channelled into insulation by providing a drained and ventilated cavity behind the external wall cladding. The internal walls of buildings are not at risk of wetting unless there is a leak to the roof or internal water leakages. In such circumstances, any construction material will be subjected to damp and there will be signs that repairs are required. CLT is of such a size and scale that local wetting is unlikely to cause structural distress before necessary repairs are undertaken to correct the water ingress.

Structural design – key principles • CLT panels are typically used to create cellular structures of timber loadbearing walls with timber floor slabs constructed using the platform frame approach. • It is envisaged that, in 2020, BS EN 1995-1-1:2004+A2:2014 (Eurocode 5) will be updated to include a design procedure for CLT. Until such time, CLT should be designed using the principles given in BS EN 1995-1-1 and BS EN 1995-1-2, together with data from the manufacturer of the product.

• For both wall and beam/floor components, bending stresses are typically calculated using effective section properties. The most common approach to structural design of CLT among European CLT manufacturers, and the method believed most likely to be adopted in the forthcoming revision of Eurocode 5, is based on effective section properties determined using a modified version of the theory of mechanically jointed beams to BS EN 1995-1-1:2004+A2:2014 Annex B, but other methods can be used. >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

Timber structures Cross-laminated timber

How does CLT perform in a fire? Oliver Neve explains what happens to CLT during a fire, extracted from TRADA’s forthcoming book on the performance of cross-laminated timber (CLT).


here is a long-held assumption that, because wood burns, timber buildings are at a higher risk of fire. Timber construction has now demonstrated, over a considerable time, that this is not necessarily correct. Timber structures offer no more risk than any other form of construction when correctly designed and built to a good standard, and can meet building regulations.

Fire resistance in timber frame buildings In lightweight timber frame construction, this performance is achieved by ensuring that the frame is protected by fire-resistant linings and thermal insulation is located within the walls. This is necessary because the timber elements, such as framing, joists or rafters, are usually of small section wood, which, when exposed to fire, will ignite and burn relatively quickly if left unprotected. Larger sections of timber, however, have a degree of inherent fire resistance within the material. As the fire attacks the timber, a charring layer is formed. This increases at a slow and steady predictable rate, while also protecting the remaining timber that retains its structural properties and remains dimensionally stable. Figure 1 shows the effect of charring.

Figure 1: Charring of timber


The strength of the remaining timber section is assessed through calculation to ensure that it will not fail after a design fire rating time exposed to fire. The panel can then be designed using the reduced cross-section method outlined in BS EN 1995-1-2 Eurocode 5. Structural fire design, where the remaining section is calculated following the effective charring depth. Allowance must therefore be made for the sacrificial wood that would be lost in the charring process when determining the structural size of the section.

Fire resistance in CLT panels Because CLT panels are made of solid timber, their fire resistance can be assessed on a similar basis as large glulam timber sections, and an allowance can then be made for a similar extended resistance due to the charring effect when the panels are exposed to fire. The assessed charring rate for CLT panels is 0.7 mm/min to 0.8 mm/min, similar to softwood glulam. For many smaller single or two-storey buildings, requiring no more than 30-minutes fire resistance, it may be possible to use CLT panels without a lining or ceiling, even as a loadbearing wall or deck. However, for multi-storey buildings, and those buildings requiring longer fire resistance, a protective lining will usually be necessary. The degree of fire protection necessary from the lining will partially depend on the thickness of the CLT panel as the thicker the panel the longer it will last in a fire. This is taken into account in calculating the overall fire resistance of the wall or floor, and CLT panels can generally be used for internal and external walls, floors and roofs, whether these require fire resistance or not. There are three ways to increase the fire resistance of the CLT: • Increased thickness of the panel means that there is more remaining structural material in the fire case. • An increase in the number of layers. This method achieves an improved fire resistance by providing a greater remaining second moment of area in the fire case. For example, a five-layer panel will perform better than a three-layer panel of equivalent thickness in the fire case. • Apply fire protection, typically plasterboard. >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

Timber structures Cross-laminated timber

Fire protection Plasterboard Plasterboard lining is the most common method used to provide additional fire protection to a timber structure. BS EN 1995-12:2004 1 outlines behaviour of the timber as the following: • The timber will start to char at a low rate after a set period of time depending on the thickness, type and arrangement of the plasterboard protection. BS EN 1995-1-2 gives equations to calculate when this occurs. • Once the timber starts to char it is assumed that the plasterboard will fall away and expose the timber to an elevated fire without a significant protecting charred layer. • Once exposed to the elevated fire, the timber will then char at twice the normal rate until a significant charring layer of 25mm is formed, in which case the charring rate reduces back to normal. Figure 2 shows how charring develops.

At the end of this time, the timber behind the plasterboard starts to char. Once this happens, the plasterboard is assumed to have failed and falls away, whether it is fixed to the CLT directly or via a steel channel. Table 1 summarises the fire resistance of a CLT wall under a 90 kN/m permanent load and 45 kN/m variable load, with a floor to ceiling height of 3m. Figure 3 shows a section of the CLT wall with enhancements.

Connections in fire Connections are a key element of the structure and require fire protection. BS EN 1995-1-2 outlines methods for calculating the capacity of fixings with appropriate strength reductions with temperature. Where fire protection is achieved with plasterboard then this can also be considered to apply to the connection. With connection design, it could be considered that a riskbased approach is suitable for CLT structures. For example, the inherent redundancy found in CLT structures due to their cross wall construction means that, if a fire were to remove a stability wall, there are other stability walls in which to redistribute the load. During such an example, it is possible to use accidental factors of safety and improve material properties as found in Eurocode 5 – this has the effect of improving the stability wall capacity in the fire case.

1) Relationship for members unprotected throughout the time of fire exposure for charring rate βn (or βo). 2) Relationship for initially protected members where charring starts before failure of protection: 2a) Charring starts at a reduced rate when protection is still in place 2b) After protection has fallen off, charring starts at increased rate 2c) After char depth exceeds 25mm, charring rate reduces.

Figure 2: Charring depth vs time (derived from BS EN 1995-1-2)

Fire design is a consideration of disproportionate collapse, which requires that connections be adequately protected with fire-resistant boarding or intumescent paint. For example, if the connections in a major stability wall caused the collapse of the structure, these would require fire protection.

Compartment walls and floors CLT panel construction required to meet the necessary fire resistance for party walls will need to be faced with incombustible linings on both sides. The level of protection >>

required will determine the make-up of the wall, but the inherent fire resistance of the panel and its thickness can be taken into account in calculating the time the wall will last in a fire. With appropriate linings, a CLT wall can provide a fire resistance rating from 30 to 120 minutes, depending on the level required. Similarly, party floors constructed with CLT panels as a structural deck may require the underside to be protected by an incombustible ceiling, whether this is directly attached or suspended. The inherent fire resistance and thickness of the panel in conjunction with the ceiling can be taken into account in calculating the time that the floor will resist fire. Where any level of fire resistance is required for walls or floors it is important that all the joints between the panels, and between the panels and any other elements, be fully sealed to ensure the overall integrity of the fire protection. Although concrete toppings may improve acoustic performance, they cannot be relied upon to enhance the fire resistance because the concrete is ultimately supported by the CLT deck, which could eventually burn away during a fire. For structures that combine glulam beams or columns with CLT panels, it is necessary to consider the fire performance of these components. This is important if any glulam www.trada.co.uk

section projects outside the protection of a fire-resistant lining or ceiling and is therefore directly exposed to fire, in which case it must conform fully to the structural codes for fire-resistant design. Currently, few tests have been performed in the UK to establish the fire performance of CLT panels when used in either party walls or floors, but panel suppliers can offer extensive fire test data obtained from tests carried out elsewhere in Europe. This data, and accompanying construction details, can provide useful design guidance.

Resistance to surface spread of flame This is another aspect of fire performance intended to reduce the risk of fire spreading from one area to another due to the combustibility of any elements such as linings or ceilings. In the UK, there are two systems for classifying resistance to surface spread of flame: • National classifications: BS 476 Fire tests on building materials and structures2 • European classifications: BS EN 13501-1 Fire classification of construction products and building elements. Classification using test data from reaction to fire tests.3 >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

Table 2: Classifications for surface resistance to spread of flame

Building regulations usually require a Class 0 (or B) rating. Conventional roof, floor or walls of timber frame construction will usually need linings to achieve adequate resistance to spread of flame. However, in some situations, when it is not necessary to use a lining to protect CLT panels, the faces of the panels could be directly exposed to fire and their surface spread of flame may then become an issue. According to BS 476, solid wood of more than 400 kg/m3 is rated as Class 3. As CLT panels have a density of 470 kg/ m3 to 590 kg/m3, depending whether they are of spruce or pine, they therefore qualify as Class 3. There is no similar qualification in the European classifications. However, Class 3 would rarely be adequate to comply with UK building regulations. Therefore, if Building Control does not deem this to be acceptable, CLT panels can be upgraded to the required standard by impregnation or coating with a flame-retardant finish. The National Structural Timber Specification contains guidance on selecting an appropriate treatment. The flame-retardant treatment can achieve any colour/stain finish that can form an attractive architectural appearance. n Adapted from the CLT Handbook, forthcoming in 2017 from TRADA/Exova BM TRADA.

“We need even more to join the campaign in 2017 to voice concerns regarding the lack of basic knowledge of fire door safety by the very individuals and organisations who have the formal responsibility to keep us safe in the buildings they own or manage.”


ire Door Safety Week 2016 marked an important anniversary – exactly ten years since new fire safety rules for property owners and landlords came into effect in England and Wales. Long gone are the days when the fire brigade came over and gave buildings a fire safety certificate. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 means building owners and their chosen representatives now shoulder the legal responsibility for fire safety, and are required to appoint a Responsible Person for each building they own or manage. Yet, how can it be that awareness of this established law is still so pitifully low? Research for the Fire Door Safety Week campaign has shown that almost half of property owners (46.5%)1 said they either did not know what their legal obligations were or admitted they were unclear. A similar proportion said they really would not know how to spot a dodgy fire door – one of the most critical passive fire protection features in the buildings we use every day.

Avoidable tragedy No big deal, you may say. But try telling that to Julian Rosser, dad of Sophie Rosser who died in a fire in a block of flats in London’s Canary Wharf in August 2012. An inquest heard that Miss Rosser’s death could have been avoided if a self-closing fire door had not become stuck on the floor preventing it from closing. This was an avoidable tragedy. Research also revealed that more than half of all housing tenants (58%) and over 70%1 of lower income tenants have no idea who the Responsible Person is for the building where they live – the person to whom they should usually report their fire safety concerns, such as fire doors that do not close. Worryingly, 15%1 of all tenants living in blocks of flats who have got fire safety concerns have never reported those concerns to anyone at all. >> www.trada.co.uk

So the British Woodworking Federation (BWF) is saying: please step forward, the Responsible Person. No more lurking in the shadows. Mr Rosser is just one of many who would like to see the law changed to make it much clearer who the Responsible Person is in every multiple-occupancy building. This would allow the law to have much sharper teeth to deal with offenders. In Miss Rosser’s case, after four years no prosecutions have been brought and the coroner was frustrated in her attempts to allocate the blame to any particular person or organisation. The organisations behind Fire Door Safety Week – the BWF, BWF-Certifire scheme and the Fire Door Inspection Scheme, working in partnership with the Government’s Fire Kills campaign – also believe that there needs to be much greater visibility of the Responsible Person, in the same way that a first aider is legally required to be named on health and safety posters in many workplaces. There should be a public register so that anyone can discover who the Responsible Person is for fire safety in every building we live, work and relax in. Of course, this applies to commercial and public buildings, too, but the stakes are so much higher in housing. We continue to house some of our most vulnerable residents in buildings with inadequate levels of fire safety. The fire service regularly has to deal with problems such as fire doors hanging off hinges, breaches in structural fire compartmentation, poor installation and maintenance of life safety products, non-existent or outdated fire risk assessments, and blocked fire exits. This situation is completely unacceptable. The Responsible Person should not be a mystery person, but must be front and centre so that people know where to take their problems.

Resources This is not a parochial campaign. Through Fire Door Safety Week, the UK timber industry, fire door manufacturers, community groups, the construction industry, and fire and rescue services come together to: • promote safety • raise awareness of the critical role that fire doors play in protecting property and saving lives, and stamp out bad practice. • So far the campaign has attracted more than 350 supporting organisations since it first began, and 2016 was another resounding success. Many companies in the fire door and broader construction industry ran their own events or marketing campaigns during the week, while key suppliers to the sector did a big PR push out to their business customers. Social media carried messages to millions. The campaign attracted support from the Fire Minister and other high-profile influencers, and was featured across TV, radio and the press, while fire services across the country took the opportunity to run significant awareness-raising fire door safety campaigns in their local communities, too. Although progress was made in 2016, the work never ends. We need even more to join the campaign in 2017 to voice concerns regarding the lack of basic knowledge of fire door safety by the very individuals and organisations who have the formal responsibility to keep us safe in the buildings they own or manage. >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

Protection Fire doors

From April 2014 to March 2015 there were 28,200 dwelling fires in England alone.2 Deaths from these fires contributed to nearly two-thirds of the total fire fatalities in that time frame. And, when the worst happens, it is the compartmentation of fire and the correct installation of certificated fire doorsets that buys us time, creating safe refuge and a protected route for the emergency services to come to our aid. This is why the BWF continues to campaign for changes in legislation and to educate people on the importance of fire doors. A properly installed fire door can save lives.

About the author

The momentum continues Many elements of the Fire Door Safety Week 2016 initiative will extend well into 2017, including several events and training seminars, and the ongoing social media campaign, Click It, Kick It. This campaign wages war on the lethal fire door wedge. In the Click It, Kick It campaign, anyone who sees a fire door being wedged open is urged to take a photo (Click It), to share on social media using the hashtag #ClickItKickIt, and then to kick the wedge away (Kick It) so the door can close. It is important that any instances where fire doors have been wedged open are reported to the building owner or manager.

Protection Cladding

“To ensure long-term durability against both fungal decay and insect attack, it is essential that any species containing sapwood or classified as moderately durable is protected for external applications.”


imber cladding offers a range of options for external building design that, when used with modern preservatives and exterior finishes, offers a wide range of aesthetic and functional variation. Traditionally, timber cladding was manufactured from Canadian western red cedar, Siberian larch and UK home-grown species, but over the years different species, preservatives and finishes have been introduced to offer a much greater choice. Specifiers now require not only more durable solutions but also protection against fire – the demand for which has increased the options available. Cladding has also become more fashionable with architects and designers now wanting alternatives to traditional brick, block and rendered finishes.

Advantages of timber cladding The key environmental benefits of using wood are: • low carbon footprint • energy and waste efficiency • technical performance • good thermal and sound insulation properties • aesthetics. It is also a renewable resource available in a wide range of densities, colours, strengths and sizes, with the technical performance of wood covered in many British Standards. As well as cladding, there are different types of finishing trims available in timber. These are designed to improve the aesthetics of the project by being installed on corners and around windows.

Timber species suitable for cladding Some of the more common species used for cladding include: Kiln-dried Scots pine or European redwood (Pinus sylvestris) Commercially known as European redwood and supplied from forests in Sweden, which is known for its good-quality slow-grown redwood. This species requires treatment if it is to be used for cladding and, providing it is kiln dried, it is >> www.trada.co.uk

easy to treat with preservatives to achieve a desired service of 15 to 30 years out of ground contact as defined in BS 8417:2011+A1:2014 Preservation of wood. Code of practice. Available in different grades with the highest grade having the fewest knots. Western red cedar (Thuja plicata) Imported Commercially grown in Canada and the coastal Pacific north-west of the US. A slow-grown, straight-grained species that is predominantly a red/brown colour. A very stable species and generally defect free with few knots. When exposed to rain and sunlight it will fade to a silver/grey colour quite quickly. Rated as durable, the heartwood will give a service life in excess of 60 years out of ground contact. UK-grown Commercially introduced into the UK in the 1950s. Freshly machined, it is a pale reddish colour that weathers to a silver/grey on exposure. Typically straight grained and exceptionally stable in use. UK-grown cedar contains aromatic oils giving it a natural resistance to insect and fungal decay as long as the timber is in a position to dry out when it has become wet. Not quite as durable as the imported species as it is rated as only moderately durable. Larch Imported kiln-dried Siberian larch (Larix sibirica) Regarded as the only true Siberian larch so it is important to specify this particular species. It is slow grown with a tight grain and yellow/brown in colour. It has inter-grown knots similar to those in Swedish redwood and contains a natural fungicide called arabinoglactan. It is a moderately durable and hardwearing timber, and when exposed to rain and sunlight it will fade to a silver/grey colour.

UK-grown larch (Larix decidua) A very strong timber, light brown in colour with frequent dark knots. This makes it difficult to machine as the knots tend to loosen and fall out. Best used with a sawn finish. Typically has a straight grain but can be prone to splitting and has a high resin content that in certain conditions can ooze out. Over time, when exposed, it will turn a silver/grey colour. Other species to mention include Douglas-fir, oak, whitewood and sweet chestnut.

The natural durability rating of any species is based on the heartwood and preservative treatment should be specified if required. The sapwood of any species is classified as perishable so preservative treatment is recommended should cladding contain any sapwood. In addition, pigments and dyes can be added to the preservatives, and there are many types of coatings available to enhance the appearance. If fire regulations dictate, cladding can either be pressure treated with a fire retardant or have a coating applied under factory conditions to comply with European standards. >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

To ensure long-term durability against both fungal decay and insect attack, it is essential that any species containing sapwood or classified as moderately durable is protected for external applications. Preservatives available include: • low-pressure microemulsions and solvent-based products • high-pressure water-based systems.

These should then be allowed to acclimatise on site and also be protected from the elements. The correct installation recommendations should be followed using approved fixings, and where necessary, any cut boards should be re-treated with an appropriate end coat capable of adequately sealing the end grain.

These will both provide long-term protection. However, lowpressure systems, used in an external situation, must have a coating or paint system applied after treatment and this must be maintained for the life of the product. In addition, there are some relatively new micronised preservative systems available based on micronised copper and co-biocides. This treatment has low volatile organic compound emissions and improved corrosion resistance when used with recommended fixings and fasteners. It can also be used in contact with aluminium.

There are many coatings and finishes available for both treated and untreated timber cladding. Typically, most shades on the RAL colour chart are available to suit the finished project. There are two main types that are best applied under factory conditions to comply with any warranty conditions:

Keeping up appearances There is also a range of dyes that can be added to preservatives to enhance the colour of the treated products. As well as traditional dye systems, there is a micronised pigment system that offers increased colour stability. These systems work particularly well on permeable redwood; and the treated timber will retain its colour longer than cedar species. The key to providing a stable and durable cladding product for external use is to use a kiln-dried durable species or to treat a kiln-dried species and then re-condition it prior to installation. www.trada.co.uk

• Translucent finishes where the properties of the base timber, that is grain and knots, can still be seen through the coating. • Opaque finishes are typically paint, in a chosen colour and made up of several coats such as an undercoat or primer followed by one or two finish coats. Most coatings will come with some type of performance warranty or guarantee if applied under factory controlled conditions. These may cover against fungal decay, mould or mechanical breakdown of the coating. There are also some coatings that accelerate the weathering process of the timber and when exposed interaction with moisture speeds up the greying process. >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

Fire protection Fire treatments can be applied using a controlled impregnation process, either high or low pressure, or by applying a coating under factory-controlled conditions. These can comply with current European standards, for example EuroClass B/Class O, but it is important to check with the supplier to confirm which standards the product has been tested to. Some of these systems can be applied over an existing preservative treatment offering the customer both durability and fire protection. Some fire treatments can also have coatings or finishes applied over the top, but it is advisable to check with the supplier first.

Summary With all projects involving cladding, it is important to establish what the client expects from the timber in terms of cost, performance and aesthetics. The table below gives a summary of the more common species:

“The structural capabilities and green credentials of timber made it the perfect material for this project, as it allowed for a design that embraced and enhanced the landscape while meeting ambitious environmental goals and strict construction timescales.”


he redevelopment of the north hub site at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park aimed to provide a worldclass community building and play space to be used by park visitors and future residents of the former athlete’s village, which would be converted into housing. The brief was for the design to be integrated into the landscape, responding to important views of the newly developed North Park, and continue the standard for design excellence and sustainability set by the park’s collection of outstanding and resource-efficient sport venues. Along with London-based practice Erect Architecture, Land Use Consultants (landscape architects), and Max Fordham (environmental engineers), TALL Engineers were part of a team that developed an ambitious architectural concept in tandem with a strong sense of environmental responsibility. The result was a project that showcased how natural and engineered timber can deliver exemplary design and sustainability.

Timber Lodge The Timber Lodge is a single-storey, timber-clad building that spreads across the site with long, sloping rooflines connecting the building to its landscape and reflecting the feel of the park’s large-scale buildings. Two double-height spaces (a café and a flexible community space) both feature generous canopies formed by the overhanging roof on three sides and large expanses of full-height glazing to connect meaningfully to the park landscape. Cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels were the ideal structural solution for this project for a number of reasons. At first, it was the consideration of CLT’s almost unique structural capabilities. In early design meetings it became apparent that the building’s architectural success might be largely dependent on the successful resolution of the large sloping roofs over the double-height spaces and in particular how they might be read as slim, simple, planar elements. TALL’s response drew on >> www.trada.co.uk

the particular characteristics of CLT to meet these design goals. The engineering challenge was to allow for unobstructed floor to ceiling glazing that is more than 5m tall in places (including a fully glazed corner) while retaining the signature thin, sloping roof profile without cumbersome downstands or unnecessary posts. To achieve the width of canopy required on all three sides while aligning the grain of the CLT panels with the cantilever directions, the roof would have required two-layers of CLT panels, and although CLT has a useful strength in the secondary direction, the cantilever distances were too wide to use panels in this orientation and would have driven up the panel thicknesses. Similarly, alternate solutions with steel or timber beams could

not achieve the desired canopy widths and full-height glazing without tricky fabrication and a thicker roof profile. TALL’s solution, however, used one layer of CLT panels arranged so that the direction of the surface grain (the outermost layers of each panel) radiated from a single point. This way, the grain of the CLT was always at a useful angle to the cantilever, and the canopy width was achieved along the length of a CLT panel rather than the width. This takes full advantage of the bi-directional spanning capability of CLT and exploited the fact that there is a gain in efficiency when aligning the direction of the surface grain of CLT panels with the direction of structural span. Using this radial arrangement, the 3m overhangs on >>

construction. The use of CLT panels allowed for a high degree of off-site prefabrication – not just of the panels themselves but also routing for services – and once on site the panels were quickly fitted together using lightweight, handheld tools.

TALL’s solution survived the several rounds of review common on public sector projects, proving not only its buildability but also its value for money, as it required significantly less material than other contractor-proposed solutions. The engineering solution, in turn, informed the architectural design, and the visually exposed radial pattern of the exposed CLT panels was used to determine the arrangement of the roof lights, which became one of the building’s hallmark features.

The environmental benefits of a timber building in terms of energy use of resources and carbon sequestering are well known, but in this case the building construction was also greatly simplified by two further environmental benefits of working with mass timber. The ease of achieving airtightness allowed the canopy soffits to be left as exposed CLT in unity with the internal ceilings without the membranes that might otherwise be required. Also, the natural insulation qualities of timber eliminated complex cold bridge detailing where the insulated roof became the uninsulated canopy. Finally, 200mmthick insulation wrapped behind the walls’ sweet chestnut timber cladding and a standing seam metal roof ensured the building exhibited excellent thermal performance. These features allowed the building to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.

It was not just the roof that benefitted from CLT’s bi-directional properties; the numerous full-height windows left only very slender wall sections between the windows to provide lateral stability. Wall panels just 85mm thick and 850mm wide were installed up to 5.5m high to provide lateral stability from CLT’s inherent in-plane stiffness, enabling the striking alternating timber-clad and full-height glazed elevations that allows the surrounding landscape to permeate the building. Beyond the structural engineering challenges, we were also aware of the time constraints the design and construction of this building would be under. The opening of the Olympic Park was tied in by planning condition to the completion of the building, so a delay to completion was completely out of the question, but the programme only allowed six months for www.trada.co.uk

Tumbling Bay playground The adjacent playscape is intended to further emphasise the park’s riverine landscape. It is modelled on the particular ecology of the park and east London, with three ‘character areas’ based in the pioneer birch and hazel woodlands and mature pine forests. A sand and water play area was inspired by the history of the River Lea, which flows through the park. Paths wind through the space, around landforms and >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

through a carefully planted landscape to hidden willow pods. The climax of the development is the Scots pine woodland area, its naturally formed play structure seeming to grow out of the landscape, providing a challenging play experience that allows children to climb and scramble through branches to canopy-level heights. The naturalistic approach to the play space ensured that it not only integrated but also enhanced the surrounding landscape. The different character areas provided accessible and inclusive spaces for all users and for different types of play. The use of mature natural trees for the play structures in the Scots pine woodland was an ambitious choice that highlights the commitment of the design team to the brief. Specialist playground subcontractors Adventure Playground Engineers (APES) sustainably sourced and felled mature oak trees from an Oxfordshire forest, which would form the spine of the play structure. Natural branches were woven together to form ‘nests’, hollow voids through which visitors can climb, and protective barriers. Rope and natural timber bridges connect these nests and form routes for children to follow without their feet touching the ground. Of course, unlike sawn or engineered timber, natural timber comes in the shape and sizes and form it has grown in, and so, rather than a design being produced, a set of rules of guidelines are followed, and the skill and experience of the contractor is a key part of this. TALL engineered the playground’s more formal structures – for example the timber and rope bridge, specially designed to be lively under foot, and the ground-level surfacing – but many of its seemingly informal and naturalistic elements required a lesstraditional approach to design. For these structures, we provided advice where necessary but ultimately relied on full-scale load testing of the completed structures. Nervous moments ensued as we witnessed the tests on site to check that movements were in line with expectations, but the expertise of APES’ construction alongside TALL’s design was ultimately proven. Visiting the playground today, you will see children still putting the structures through their paces, further testing them through the ingenuity of children behaving unexpectedly.

In addition to its BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, the project’s approach to accessibility was recognised with the Selwyn Goldsmith Award for Universal Design at the 2014 Civic Trust Awards. The Timber Lodge café is now run by social enterprise Unity Kitchen Café and managed by The Camden Society, a charity that helps people with disabilities to achieve greater equality. The playground has become one of London’s most-visited play spaces, and the busy café allows young people with learning disabilities to build careers in catering and hospitality. n

“The surface of modified wood is hydrophobic, something that can be maintained in service through periodic application of a proprietary solution that can be used in combination with a bespoke cleaning system.”


his article provides a review on recent projects using established modified woods, together with an introduction to the new products/brands and their properties. It also looks at how test standards have evolved to align with the increased use of modified woods and offers an update on the product certification schemes developed in a number of countries, including the Wood Protection Association’s UK scheme. These certification schemes independently validate claims that manufacturers make about the technical performance of their products, and ensure appropriate factory production control processes are in place through periodic audits and review of independent testing data. The final section looks at the developments in relation to the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of modified wood products, which allows manufacturers to justify claims made about environmental credentials of their products on a level playing field and allow for Environmental Product Declarations to be made.

Established products Accoya® Accoya® is a modified wood that continues to be used on an ever-increasing range of projects across the globe, examples of which are presented at www.accoya.com. The wide range of end-uses reflect the high levels of performance that can be achieved using this wood over other species, whereas other reasons for use relate to its excellent environmental credentials. Some of the more unusual projects are listed under the category ‘Imagination’, which includes its use in the giant replica of Noah’s ark built in Kentucky, USA, and which is the country’s largest free-standing timber structure. The Ark Encounter is one of the largest ‘green’ construction projects in the US and used between 300–400m3 of Accoya®, which was selected because of its durability, stability and its environmental credentials.

Accoya® was selected because of its Cradle to Cradle Gold rating and its Platinum C2C Material Health certificate. Carbon negative over its full life cycle, it is also reusable and recyclable therefore supporting the circular economy principles. Technical properties of Accoya® have led to it being selected as the preferred wood for use in a number of velodrome tracks chosen because of its dimensional stability and lack of splintering in comparison to unmodified timbers normally used.

It is used without coating since these are unable to adhere to the hydrophobic surface. On exposure to sunlight, the wood turns silver-grey over time. The product has the highest eco-classification from the Swedish SundaHus and Byggvarubedömningen databases. These are Swedish tools used to assess sustainability of building products. Brimstone Brimstone is a brand of thermally modified woods manufactured using UK-grown hardwoods (ash, poplar and sycamore). The key technical improvements relate to improved durability against fungi (independent testing by BRE) and improved dimensional stability. Depending on the species used it is suitable for use as: • exterior decking • joinery, and • furniture.

The Manual presents information on the durability, stability, strength, hardness and other characteristics for each modified wood. It sets out those end-use categories manufacturers recommend their products are used for and compares their performance where information is available. In some instances, the scheme indicates whether performance is improved or reduced compared with unmodified wood used in its manufacture. More recently, the WPA has introduced a voluntary scheme for the independent review and approval of test data packages relating to the enhanced biological durability of various modified woods, related to use-class and desired service life. Manufacturers are invited to submit their test results for review by an independent panel of experts, so that specifiers and endusers can have confidence that products which, in some cases, are still based on new technologies, are in fact fit for purpose.

Materials Timber grading

“An engineer needs values of strength and stiffness to use in design calculations, which, irrespective of the material, allow for the fact that there is never perfect knowledge of the properties of any individual piece.”


he quality of timber varies and, while we have little control over tree growth compared to industrial manufacturing processes, we do know many of the factors that influence wood properties. Both the species and the growth region are important since growing conditions and forestry practice affect the quality and volume of timber produced.

Safety of grading Structural engineering is about ensuring that buildings are safe and remain fit for use. This involves ensuring that structural timber has adequate properties to meet the performance expected of it in the design. Strength grading is a non-destructive assessment that identifies and rejects the poorer pieces of timber to improve and guarantee the properties of what is passed. It uses information about the piece of timber to predict strength, stiffness and density without causing damage to the timber. Visual strength grading will assess features such as the size and position of knots and the slope of grain to make these predictions. For machine grading, the range of predictive techniques has been expanding from mechanical stiffness measurements to include a host of newer technologies such as: • x-ray scanning for knots and density variation • acoustic velocity • mass and volume • moisture content for correction of grading parameters • slope of grain, and • digital image recognition. As technologies improve our grading predictions improve, allowing better yields. While the prediction of individual pieces is imperfect, the process of grading ensures that the timber that is passed has, collectively at least, the properties specified for the grade. There will still be variation in the properties of the timber that has passed, but this has been quantified by the grading. Even though grading decisions are made piece by piece, the properties of a grade are statistical descriptions – not actual or minimum properties of any individual piece. This is why it is incorrect to selectively remove better >> www.trada.co.uk

pieces from a batch of graded timber as what remains may no longer meet the grade specification. Perhaps the greatest challenge in strength grading is to identify the threshold below which pieces should be rejected, while also coping with general variation in timber quality from shift to shift and from place to place. If the threshold is set too high, yield drops and we are not using the resource efficiently – too low and the grading will not result in timber with the required properties. Our understanding of the variation in wood properties, and the predictive power of grading parameters, has evolved over the years, and the standards that govern strength grading have evolved with it.

A standardised European approach The lead standard for strength grading of timber is EN 140811:2016,1 which has recently been revised2 and published by BSI with a national foreword and annex. Timber that is strength graded in accordance with this standard can be CE marked and used in construction within the European single market. Grading has to be based on a defined growth area, and this is an important part of the determination of any new visual grading assignment or machine settings calculation. Current grading relies on national borders, but large countries may www.trada.co.uk

encompass more than one set of growing conditions and need a smaller geographical restriction. Countries may be combined into a common area for convenience of trade, although this requires some similarity of the timber across the common area and works best when the growth conditions, including forest management, are similar. The rules on how much variation is reasonable within an area are currently the subject of lively debate within the codes committee. Most European countries have national visual grading rules, since they argue that established practice, regional variation in the timber supply and lack of data make a single set of European grading rules impossible or inefficient. However, any published grading rule that follows the principles of EN 14081-1 may be used for any timber source, providing the grading assignment has been properly established by testing in a grading report. BS 4978:2007+A1:2011 3 for instance, is routinely used to grade Scandinavian timber. The grading report may be presented to a Notified Body for verification, or to the European codes committee for a listing in EN 1912:2012.4 For tropical timber, the situation is different as all tropical timber is imported and has, historically, been graded by a smaller number of standards. With this in mind, a European standard for the visual strength grading of tropical timber has been published as EN 16737:2016 5 with a new STH grade. >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

Materials Timber grading

The UK has been active in the standard’s development so that there are only minor differences between the new STH grade and the existing HS grade of BS 5756:2007+A1:2011,6 which will be removed in a future revision. For machine grading, an equivalent report for the machine settings is presented to the European codes committee based on the specific machine type and make, species of timber, growth area and grading conditions. The list of approved grading reports is available from a Notified Body or, for specific machines, from the manufacturer. Settings used to be published in part 4 of EN 14081, but new settings became so numerous and were generated so often that the standard could not be updated quickly enough. Whether for machine or visual grading, preparing a grading report is a significant task that often entails several hundred tests covering a range of cross-sections. The timber must be carefully selected to ensure that it properly represents the variability in the source material. It is first graded, and then destructively tested after being conditioned at 20°C and 65% relative humidity. This part of the task should match the requirements of EN 384:2016 7 and, for grading machines, EN 14081-2:2010+A1:2012.8

Once the grading report is accepted, sawmills and other companies that carry out grading can apply to a Notified Body for their grading process to be audited. Machine grading is audited against the factory production control standard EN 14081-3:2012,9 while visual grading is audited against EN 14081-1 and the relevant grading rule(s). If the audit is satisfactory, the company issues a Declaration of Performance that provides the basis for CE marking the timber they grade. If the moisture content of the timber is below 20% when distortion and fissures are assessed, the CE marking will indicate that the timber is dry-graded. This does not mean that the timber will be at the same moisture content when it reaches the building site. If timber is not stored under cover, its moisture content will increase, so any requirement for a particular moisture content on delivery should be agreed separately.

Values for structural design An engineer needs values of strength and stiffness to use in design calculations, which, irrespective of the material, allow for the fact that there is never perfect knowledge of the properties of any individual piece. For the structural Eurocodes, the value for timber strength and density is taken as the value below which no more than 5% of the pieces in the grade are likely to fall. This is the characteristic value within the grade – it should not be confused with the threshold used for rejecting pieces from the grade, although it is related to it as the threshold is determined in order that the timber passing the grading satisfies the requirements for characteristic values. Characteristic values may be given for a range of properties; for instance, bending strength is important for beams and columns, but compression strength perpendicular to the grain may be governing if the bearing area is small. For glulam, the tension strength of the outer lamination is usually critical. It would be prohibitively expensive to test for all of the strength properties, so EN 384 contains accepted, conservative relationships for the majority of characteristic values from three primary characteristic values, established from testing. The primary values are usually bending strength, bending stiffness and density – but it is possible also to base grading on tension strength, tension stiffness and density, which is beneficial for glulam.

design and charring rate calculations. It is not the best density value for self-weight calculations as the true density of the graded timber may be considerably higher.

Strength classes A strength class is a set of strength, stiffness and density properties that provide a convenient means of specifying structural timber. C16 and C24, so familiar in the UK, are two of the strength classes defined for softwoods in EN 338:2016,10 but the standard contains many other classes including ones for temperate and tropical hardwoods. The new edition of EN 338 has made important changes to some characteristic values, as well as introducing new tables for tension classes and permitting hardwoods to be graded to ‘softwood’ classes. Not all strength classes are in EN 338, for instance TR26, commonly used in the trussed rafter industry, has a relationship between strength and stiffness that differs from that in EN 338. Any organisation may define their own strength class, if their test data supports it, better suited to the timber resource or the application. However, the current widespread familiarity of the EN 338 classes makes establishing alternatives an uphill struggle and it is usually sensible to accept the compromise of an EN 338 strength class in exchange for convenience of trade. This may change as grading machines become small and affordable enough to be used by fabricators, or sawmill production www.trada.co.uk

Materials Eurocode 5

Moving towards a second generation of Eurocodes Dr Keerthi Ranasinghe provides an update on the latest developments on this comprehensive set of design standards.


tructural Eurocodes, comprising of ten standards, cover a vast area of knowledge that includes subjects such as the basis of structural design, actions applied to structures, as well as material specific guidelines for structural design. The entire suite comprises of 58 different parts containing thousands of pages of relevant information.

5 (BS EN 1995 – a suite of three standards covering timber design) opted to use complex equations and formulae instead. The design philosophy was also changed from permissible stress design to a one involving limit state design. Most engineering practices therefore, however big or small, initially struggled to cope with this transition.

First generation limitations

Within this backdrop, the European Commission in December 2012 issued a Specific Mandate (M515) to the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN), with the scope to develop a second generation of Eurocodes to: • amend the first generation of Eurocodes, and • develop new Eurocodes.

When the first generation of Eurocodes were published around 2004, they were widely acclaimed to be the most comprehensive set of design standards found anywhere in the world. However, the changeover to the Eurocodes from the familiar National Standards, such as the BS suite of standards in the UK, was not at all smooth in most European jurisdictions. A common argument against the use of Eurocodes was their complexity in comparison to their corresponding National Standards. For example, in the case of timber engineering design in the UK, where the British Standard (BS 5268) used a simple tabulated approach to present information, Eurocode

The mandate M515 also gave the directions that the second generation of Eurocodes should: • encourage innovations • take into consideration new demands and needs of society • harmonise national technical initiatives on new topics of interest to the construction sector, and • improve ease of use. >>

Materials Eurocode 5

Second generation development In response, CEN Technical Committee 250 (CEN/TC250 – overarching committee responsible for all structural Eurocodes), under the chairmanship of Professor Steve Denton (Parsons Brinckerhoff and University of Bath) produced a detailed work programme for the development of the second generation of Eurocodes. The technical work under this programme is to be carried out in four over-lapping phases, of roughly three-anda-half year’s duration each. Work under Phase 1 is already underway, aiming to deliver the technical content by 2020.

Phase 1 In the context of timber engineering design, work under Phase 1 is being carried out on the two new topics: • cross-laminated timber, and • timber concrete composites. The work is carried out by two separate Project Teams (PTs) appointed by and contracted to CEN through the National Standardisation body for the Netherlands. Both of these PTs report back on their progress to the Sub Committee 5 of CEN/ TC250 (CEN/TC250/SC5) responsible for timber engineering (Eurocode 5). The UK is well represented in these Phase 1 developments, not only at the sub-committee level, but also at the PT level.

Phases 2, 3 and 4 Under Phase 2, for timber engineering design, everything else within Eurocode 5, other than the two topics, timber connections and timber in fire, are to be addressed. Although the PTs are yet to be appointed, some of the items of work identified for this phase are vibration of floors, robustness and stability of timber frame walls – subjects that are generally considered as being insufficiently addressed by the current Eurocode 5. Phase 3 will then cover the subjects of timber connections and timber in fire, with Phase 4 concentrating solely on timber bridges. As these timber engineering work packages are to progress in parallel to developments in other structural Eurocodes, for example the base Eurocode EN 1990 – Basis of Structural Design, a great deal of cross-coordination is taking place as well. This is facilitated by CEN/TC250, through the work of the relevant sub-committees, working groups and horizontal groups. For example, the working groups on timber connections and timber in fire under CEN/TC250/SC5, are already working hard on formulating the background documents on which the project teams, when appointed www.trada.co.uk

under Phase 3, should base their work on. TRADA is actively participating in the work of both these working groups. It should be noted that the participation in these committees and working groups is entirely voluntary with no payments being made to the participants.

TRADA’s involvement Over the years, TRADA, through the training courses it offers with its appointed technical services provider Exova BM TRADA, listened to many engineers’ concerns on their use of Structural Eurocodes. One recurring theme that came out during these discussions was the question of ‘Can these standards be simplified?’ This concern has been captured by the EC direction for the second generation of Eurocodes, in that the new standards should improve on ease of use. TRADA, through its representatives at the British Standards Institution (BSI) Committees, as well the CEN committees and working groups, has always pushed for clarity and simplicity of standards. TRADA continues to voice its members’ concerns at these forums and strives hard to find agreements with European counterparts to produce standardisation solutions that are state of the art, yet easy to follow.

Next steps In summary, TRADA members are encouraged to voice their concerns and opinions on Eurocode 5 so its representatives can take them to discussions at the BSI and CEN committees. One interesting question recently asked within the current political context is: ‘Do we really have to use Eurocodes now that the UK has voted to exit the EU?’ This is a highly sensitive area of discussions and it is recommended that readers take guidance from the knowledgeable articles produced by the BSI on the subject, available at www.bsigroup.com/en-GB/aboutbsi/media-centre/BSI-and-Brexit. n

Materials Standards update

Demystifying the new quality management and environmental management standards

Following the publication of two revised standards, this article outlines the changes that have been made and what action should be taken for compliance.


• high-level structure • identical core text • common terms and core definitions.

What are the changes?

What does the Annex SL high-level structure contain?

he quality management system standard ISO 9001 and the environmental management system standard ISO 14001 have been revised and are now published. The revised standards contain some significant changes that will affect those working in the construction and timber industries. This article discusses the changes and offers guidance on how to manage the transition process to ensure that organisations are compliant and prepared for assessment against the new standards.

Both standards have adopted the Annex SL high-level structure framework. This will ensure that all new or revised management system standards have the same overall look and feel with regards to:

This structure will remove duplication, conflicting requirements, confusion and misunderstanding arising from different standards being developed in isolation. As a result, it will be easier for organisations to implement an integrated management system.

The new standards will contain the following clauses: Introduction 1. Scope 2. Normative references 3. Terms and definitions 4. Context of the organisation 5. Leadership 6. Planning 7. Support 8. Operation 9. Performance evaluation 10. Improvement These ten clauses introduce the concept of risk-based thinking. This concept enables an organisation to determine and assess the risks (that is, factors that could use its processes and its management system to deviate from the planned results) to put in place preventative controls to minimise negative effects and to make maximum use of opportunities as they arise.

The planning stages of the Annex SL high-level structure


Risk-based thinking is part of a bigger principle called the process approach, in which activities are understood and managed as interrelated processes that function as a coherent system. The process approach incorporates the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle. >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

Materials Standards update The PDCA cycle:

PDCA cycle The PDCA cycle enables an organisation to ensure that its processes are adequately resourced and managed, and that opportunities for improvement are determined and implemented. This cycle of activities will, of course, be carried out continually until an acceptable situation has been achieved.

Industry insight


RADA member B & K Structures has completed its transition to the new standard. We spoke to Managing Director Nick Milestone about the transition process and his thoughts on the new standard. Q: How did you find the transition process? A: The transition process has actually gone quite smoothly. Because B & K Structures is a subsidiary of the Bowmer & Kirkland group, we had the benefit of having the group quality/ environmental team for assistance throughout the process. We also had the additional benefit of being the fourth company within the group to achieve ISO 9001:2015. This meant we were able to adapt what we had previously prepared through the NCs or OFIs raised with other group companies even before our audit. Each group company has different business models, but we all have similar management systems fine-tuned to each particular company’s scope of supply. Q: What tools or techniques helped to make the process go smoothly? A: We have undertaken a couple of webinars for the ISO 14001 revision, but apart from that there’s been no formal training as such. We have read a few overviews and guidance documents on both transitions which have been enormously helpful. Q: What were the biggest changes or tasks along the way? A: The biggest challenge was the review of the life-cycle impact of the materials we use. Other Bowmer & Kirkland group companies use a process chart identifying the various stages in the life cycle of the material and the impacts affecting the life cycle. This method will now be adopted throughout the Bowmer & Kirkland group. We’ve still had to


consider the life cycle and the relevant perspectives and how they impact on our management system, but we now believe this is not the mammoth task that we had originally envisaged. Of all the changes, though, we would say that the Risk and Opportunities is looking to be the most time consuming and have the most effects on our whole management system – it is still an ongoing process. We were determined that whatever changes had been instigated as a direct result of the transitions we would ultimately benefit from the values we achieve. The business itself would then gain a significant improvement and we do see a value in everything that we’ve done in achieving this transition. Q: Were there any complications? A: There could have been many stumbling blocks had they not already been picked up by other group companies, specifically regarding the interaction of the interested parties, business processes and the management systems. Q: What do you think the improvements to the new standard are? A: If anything, we don’t think the new standards go far enough in some respects. However, the revised ISO 14001 standard has moved closer to what we should all be doing. Items such as emergency preparedness and response, considering both life cycle and performance evaluation, and of course, the interested parties. We do see great value in this requirement as this is the perfect vehicle in which to capture the challenges that we’re increasingly given by our clients. Sustainable procurement is a subject that is gathering some momentum within our client base and our interested parties’ matrix will identify, mark and measure our progress.

Bamboo: fad or foe?

Is an increase in the use of bamboo products bad news for the timber industry? David Trujillo discusses the most recent developments and how the two materials can work together to create a more sustainable future.

Materials Bamboo

“Large bamboo culms can be used in construction directly as beams or columns – subject to having been seasoned and preservative treated.”


ake a short stroll to any department store and you are likely to notice that bamboo-derived consumer products are in vogue. These may include paper, clothing and kitchen utensils. Bamboo flooring is now ubiquitous in DIY stores. You may be tempted to dismiss bamboo as a passing fad, which will eventually fade away when some new ‘must have’ rage comes along. However, when you consider that the global bamboo trade exceeds US$2.5 billion, it seems unlikely that bamboo is simply a fad. In many market segments, bamboo products are here to stay. Is bamboo therefore an irreconcilable enemy of the timber industry? As I will argue here within, I don’t think so. If anything, I believe bamboo and timber have the potential to complement each other.

Why bamboo? Botanically speaking, bamboo is a giant grass, not a tree, therefore its derived products cannot strictly be called timber. However, it is a lignocellulosic material with properties that, in many respects, are very similar to those for timber. Bamboo is: • anisotropic • hygroscopic • combustible, and • biodegradable. There are more than one thousand species of bamboo throughout the world (none of these is native to Europe), and most are unlikely to be of interest to the construction industry because they produce relatively small stems (bamboo stems are called culms). So far, attention has been concentrated on a few dozen species that produce large culms, with diameters larger than 50mm and walls thicker than 5mm. Some species can grow in excess of 25m in less than six months, with growth rates of up to one metre per day. Culms are not normally harvested until three to five years after they have emerged, in order to let them develop optimum properties. Culms are not individual plants, but the aerial part of a >> www.trada.co.uk

complex network of roots and rhizomes. Therefore, when a single culm is harvested, the network is not seriously damaged and will live on to produce more culms, not unlike pollarding and coppicing. Bamboo’s very tall, hollow and slender culm requires that the walls are made from a very strong material. In fact, bamboo has the strength of oak, but it only takes four years to harvest.

gradually entering the mainstream, but they are not strictly available as structural products, although some ‘semistructural’ products (for example, pergolas, glass facades and carports) are already on the market – see Figure 2 (overleaf). Interestingly, Europe is not only the world’s largest consumer of EBPs, but is responsible for around 12% of the global exports of EBPs.

Renewability These three qualities – strength, quick growth and continuous regeneration – make it a rapidly renewable resource. Large species of bamboo are mainly found in tropical, sub-tropical and temperate parts of the world. We are unlikely to see them growing outdoors in the UK any time soon, but some species have been successfully introduced into southern Europe. Many of the countries in Asia and Latin America, where bamboo is being exploited commercially, are developing economies with an incipient or non-existent commercial timber forestry. Therefore, in these contexts, bamboo is not displacing timber, instead it is another cash crop, with the added potential that it could substitute more carbonintensive materials such as steel, concrete and masonry.

Sustainability Large bamboo culms can be used in construction directly as beams or columns – subject to having been seasoned and preservative treated. If these culms are used close to source, say within 300km of their origin, they have a very low embodied carbon of just 0.2kg CO2e/kg. When this is coupled with its high strength and efficient cross-section, it is likely to be unrivalled in terms of sustainability. However, hollow bamboo culms make an inefficient use of a shipping container, therefore importing them to the UK significantly increases their carbon and economic cost. Hence, once bamboo culms are brought to the UK, it can no longer be claimed that they are very sustainable.

Engineered bamboo products Alternatively, if the culm walls are thick enough, the culm can be cut, flattened or reformed into boards, mats or strips, to make products akin to glulam, laminated veneer lumber, plywood or OSB (see Figure 1). As is the case for wood, these engineered products improve and standardise mechanical, physical and aesthetic properties. Engineered bamboo products (EBPs) are

170 |

Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

Standards for EBPs are being developed, albeit the current thinking is that EBPs are sufficiently similar to engineered wood products to not warrant a special set of design codes. This means that EBPs could potentially be designed to Eurocode 5, subject to the existence of sufficient EN standards to support the process. The same is not true for structures that use bamboo culms. The differences between sawn timber and hollow bamboo culms is significant enough to require a whole new range of standards and design codes. At an international level, the development of these standards and codes is being led by the INBAR Task Force for Bamboo Construction, which pools the efforts of bamboo experts from both academia and industry from across the world. It is interesting to note that the UK has more members in the task force than any other nation, which may indicate that it is seen with some promise in the UK.

Relationship with timber The UK timber industry need not worry; it is unlikely to be undermined by EBPs and bamboo culms any time soon. As discussed, importing bamboo culms is inefficient, resulting in a product that is more than twice as expensive as their equivalent in softwood. Though there could be some niche applications, such as dismountable structures, where bamboo culms’ light weight would be advantageous – it would weigh less than half of an equivalent softwood section.

Materials Bamboo

EBPs are more expensive than sawn softwood – albeit they are stronger, stiffer and denser – therefore they are unlikely to ever displace softwood for most structural applications. EBPs could instead be complementary to softwood, providing additional strength, stiffness, hardness or aesthetic value wherever it may be needed. For example, the use of EBP’s layers in glulam or cross-laminated timber could result in shallower sections, increasing the competitiveness of timber-based products when overall construction depth is a design constraint.

act as carbon stores. In this respect they are not rivals, they are complementary, and as such both can be integrated into the palette of materials that designers will deploy in the struggle to decarbonise the built environment. n

Though bamboo has little natural durability, some EBPs have very good durability and can be used outdoors. Here, there may be some overlap with hardwoods, particularly tropical hardwoods. If EBPs do displace tropical hardwood, this may result in a decreased pressure on tropical rainforests, which is surely welcome news.

In a TEDx talk in February 2016, I qualified bamboo as ‘21st-Century steel’.1 I admit that there is an element of hyperbole in this description – bamboo cannot fulfil all the roles that steel does. However, the basis of my argument is that we cannot continue using carbon-intensive materials in the way we did in the 20th Century.

Materials Responsible timber procurement

“According to the Forestry Commission Timber Utilisation Statistics 2015 Report, only around 15% of the sawn softwood the construction industry uses is sourced from the UK; and although there are no specific figures for hardwood used in construction, the Forestry Commission Statistics 2016 state that UK-sourced hardwood made up less than 10% of the total hardwood market.”


he UK consumes circa 16 million m3 of sawn wood and panel products annually,1 the vast majority of which is believed to be used either directly or indirectly by the construction industry. But is the timber industry giving construction industry customers what they want with regards to sustainability?

This will probably depend on who you are talking to within the supply chain, but according to some senior sustainability managers from a number of major contractors, there are some fundamental requirements that must be met.2 The primary concern (other than getting the right timber on site at the right time) is that timber must be from a verifiable legal and sustainable source. For legality, it will need to meet the requirements of the EU Timber Regulation. However, when talking about sustainability, contractors are not just looking at the environmental issues, such as ensuring the timber is harvested from forests that will be replanted, they want to ensure the wider social and economic issues are also met. Associated with this is local sourcing, which is becoming a key requirement for a number of construction clients. There are also the issues of resource efficiency, and alternative and innovative new products and how these may perform over time in a given situation.

Responsible sourcing Members of the UK Contractors Group (UKCG, now part of Build UK) have previously issued procurement wording stating that: ‘All timber products purchased for either temporary or permanent inclusion in the works on UKCG member sites shall be legally and sustainably sourced, as defined by the UK Government Central Point of Expertise on Timber (CPET).’ 3 Many contractors have qualified this by stating that they will only accept timber that has full chain of custody via a third-party certification scheme that meets the requirements of CPET.4 CPET requires that any approved scheme must meet its full range of sustainability requirements, such as: • forest management planning to reduce net deforestation and restrict land use changes >> www.trada.co.uk

• minimising harm to ecosystems including protection of soil, water and biodiversity, and • control on the use of chemicals and correct disposal of waste. CPET also ensures traditional tenure and use rights are observed, consulting and working with indigenous populations who rely on the forest, labour rights (freedom of association, elimination of forced or child labour and discrimination), health and safety of workers, training, grievances and disputes. At the time of writing, CPET has only approved the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFCTM) schemes as being compliant with its requirements, achieving almost identical scores in the latest review from 2015.5 In addition to these minimum requirements, many clients and contractors have specific project or company requirements that could include an FSC-only policy or a requirement for FSC® or PEFCTM project certification. For example, some clients and contractors are members of the World Wide Fund for Nature Global Forest & Trade Network, which promotes the use of FSC-certified wood.

Grown in Britain also forms part of the social value assessment carried out by the Considerate Constructors Scheme.7 Grown in Britain is a not-for-profit organisation that is trying to reconnect the British public and business to our woodlands and the timber resources it can provide. According to the Forestry Commission Timber Utilisation Statistics 2015 Report,8 only around 15% of the sawn softwood the construction industry uses is sourced from the UK; and although there are no specific figures for hardwood used in construction, the Forestry Commission Statistics 2016 state that UK-sourced hardwood made up less than 10% of the total hardwood market.9 Therefore individuals and organisations must insist on using Grown in Britain timber wherever practicable to improve these statistics. The Grown in Britain licensing scheme (GiB) is a chain of custody scheme that confirms the provenance of timber, and is specifically aimed at timber grown in the UK and products manufactured from this timber, as well as the woodlands. In most cases it will sit alongside a product’s FSC® or PEFCTM chain of custody certification, but in certain circumstances, such as where there >>

Local sourcing Another key requirement in recent years has been the move by contractors, in many cases at the request of the client driven in part by the Social Value Act, for more locally sourced products and services. The UKCG procurement statement was redrafted to include this with the additional requirement: ‘We will give preference to schemes that support the principles of the Social Value Act, eg the use of timber and timber products which are assured as “Grown in Britain”’ and this was published on the Grown in Britain website. The majority of UKCG members subsequently signed up to support the Grown in Britain campaign and procure British-grown timber where feasible.6 FSC-A000503

is a requirement to source timber from a particular local woodland, it can also act as an assurance of legality and sustainability. The key requirement of a GiB-licensed woodland is that it meets the requirements of the UK Forestry Standard (UKFS). Timber traceable to a forest with a fully implemented forest management plan in line with the UKFS requirements and guidelines also meets the UK Government’s Timber Procurement Policy.

Circular economy With more focus on the circular economy, and the associated resource efficiency, clients and contractors are also looking to incorporate more reused and recycled material into their projects. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation describe the circular economy as ‘one that is restorative and regenerative by design, and which aims to keep products, components and materials at their highest utility and value at all times, distinguishing between technical and biological cycles’.10 Although timber is the construction industry’s ultimate renewable resource, this does not mean it should be sent out as biomass for energy production, or worse landfill, after its first use. Many timber components can be either reused in their original form or recycled into new materials such as chipboard, keeping them at their highest utility and value. There are a number of reuse organisations that will collect unwanted timber from construction sites and timber processors for reuse. One of these is the National Community Wood Recycling Project, which is a social enterprise that has been promoted by many in the construction industry as it helps to create sustainable employment for local people, especially those who might find it difficult to get into employment. FSC®, PEFCTM and GiB all have allowances within their schemes to cater for recycled content within a product. Ensuring products

containing recycled timber materials are certified or licensed to one of more of these schemes helps to demonstrate that resource efficiency has been considered in the manufacturing process. The timber industry should also be looking at how its products could be easily removed and reused at the end of their service life. This could be removable hoarding panels that may only be in place for a few months, or floorboards that could be in place for a lot longer.

Timber delivery documentation For contractors receiving deliveries on a construction site, the key to confirming whether a product is FSC® or PEFCTM certified (or GiB licensed) is the delivery ticket. All the above schemes require a minimum amount of information, including the claim and the certificate number, to be noted on both the delivery ticket and the invoice. However, all too often, timber, or more likely timber products, turn up on site without this minimum information on the delivery ticket. This needs to be addressed by the wider construction supply chain to ensure full chain of custody is maintained throughout the supply chain. In addition, one thing contractors would really like to see on delivery tickets is the volume of product (preferably against each item, but a total volume would be useful as a minimum) as this aids with the reporting required for project certification and industry monitoring.

are not part of the timber industry (for example, lift cars contain a surprising amount of timber and panel products), it would be great if they could impart their knowledge on chain of custody and its requirements; this is something the Timber Trade Federation is looking at. In addition, the Supply Chain Sustainability School (www.supplychainschool.co.uk) has some useful online training modules on chain of custody and what is required, produced in association with Exova BM TRADA, which can all be accessed free of charge.

Alternative products There will, however, always be situations where it may not be possible to obtain a specified product with the right sustainability requirements; for example, plywood is not manufactured in the UK, so a GiB plywood product would not be obtainable at this time. This is where the knowledge of the timber industry should really come to the fore, by suggesting alternative products that may suit a client’s requirements. For example, it may be possible to use an OSB board instead of plywood, as this would be available from a home-grown source. Linked to this is the rise of modified wood products such as acetylated timber (for example, Accoya®) and thermally modified products (Brimstone and ThermoWood®). These are now increasingly being specified for external applications in lieu of other timber species due to their improved resistance to insect and fungal attack. Where there is any doubt as to the proper application of a timber product, the contractor can always be referred to TRADA for their expert opinion.

Action needed to maintain UK wood supply Recent reports suggest that the availability of British timber is in danger. Stuart Goodall outlines the facts and the solutions available.

Materials Wood supply

“In England, Confor asked for and secured a grant to pay for the creation of new woodland plans for productive forestry and this has unlocked more than 1,000 hectares of new proposals, with more to come.”


he UK forestry and timber processing sector has been a success story. As wood availability has increased in recent decades, the sawmilling, panel board and, more recently, wood energy sectors have invested hundreds of millions of pounds to take this growing harvest and create thousands of new jobs, mainly in rural areas where there are often few other sources of employment.1 However, recent reports have suggested that, without immediate action, this success story may not continue in the future. 95% of UK wood production is softwood destined for sawmills, panel boards, pulp and wood fuel. Since the early 1980s, softwood production has nearly trebled to more than 10 million tonnes a year. As the availability of wood has increased, so too has the domestic producers’ share of the UK market for wood products. The UK is the third largest net importer of wood in the world, after China and Japan,2 and imports account for about 80% of consumption. Since the 1980s, the UK has trebled its share of the sawn timber market to more than 30% with a rising trend.3

Under threat For some years, however, the UK timber industry has been expressing deep concern that this good news story is under threat and that immediate action must be taken both to plant new productive forests and to ensure harvested forests are fully restocked to secure future supplies of wood. Confor, and others in the sector, have signalled that, while the UK is still forecast to benefit from the rising availability of wood into the 2020s, this situation would reverse in the 2030s unless action was taken. The current boom in UK forestry has been built on the tree planting that took place in the mid-20th Century. However, this large-scale planting came to a juddering halt in the 1990s, and the overwhelming bulk of any planting that has taken place since has been of hardwoods – very little of which is likely to ever produce any useable wood. In 1980, the UK planted more than 24,000 hectares (ha) of productive softwood forests. In 1990, this fell to 15,500 ha; in 2000 to 6,500 ha; and in 2010 to just 500 ha.4 >> www.trada.co.uk

Materials Wood supply

Raising awareness Unfortunately, the response of most ministers across the UK, briefed by their civil servants, has been to be defensive – trying to avoid recognition of the issue and presenting statistics that appear to show a short-term positive story, which is that forecast supplies of wood are still rising over the next decade or so. It has taken a huge amount of lobbying and media awarenessraising by Confor to drive home an acceptance that there is a real issue, although it is difficult to excite politicians into taking practical action on a problem that will hit home many years after they have moved on. That extensive time frame is a fundamental challenge for forestry – it is a long-term industry, working, in the UK, on planting and harvesting cycles of 40 to 60 years, and previous forecasts were for 25 years ahead. In response, Confor pressed for a 50-year forecast of wood availability.

Report summaries Following the publication of the ‘50-year forecast of softwood timber availability’,5 the timber industry commissioned The Wood Fibre Availability & Demand in Britain 2013–2035 report.6 This report highlights that: • The UK faces a drop in potential wood availability from 2035 onwards. This decline is particularly marked for coniferous roundwood that supplies much of the wood-processing sector in the UK.

• In the short-term, the availability of wood is increasing (before 2030) providing an opportunity for growth, but this opportunity needs to take account of significant regional variation. • Continuity of wood supply is a key issue for business confidence, and in turn continued investment. The timescales involved in maturing trees and importance of security of wood supply are major considerations for the UK wood processing sector. • There is a need for a clear policy co-ordination at UK and devolved levels to provide long-term certainty for UK forest industries, in terms of planting levels and to achieve the maximum public benefits for wood fibre use in the long term. Shortly before the John Clegg report was released, the Forestry Commission published a long-awaited study into woodland cover: Preliminary estimates of the changes in canopy cover in British woodlands between 2006 and 2015.7 This study has heightened industry concerns that Britain is losing its productive forest resource because harvested trees are not being replaced. Published in August 2016, it shows that, for every 100 hectares of coniferous woodland harvested in 2006, only just over half have been restocked with productive conifer species.

What we can we learn from this information? UK-sourced supplies of coniferous wood fibre will increase in the short term from 15.6 to 18.2 million tonnes per annum by 2030. It will then fall back to its present level in around 2035, before falling significantly below current levels until 2050 when it starts to bottom out. Within this headline story there are significant country and regional variations. Across England, by 2018, overall demand for coniferous roundwood in England will exceed supply. This is already the case in both northern and central England, where demand already exceeds availability. In Scotland, the supply of coniferous roundwood is forecast to exceed demand for the next 30 years, but with demand exceeding supply in southern Scotland by 2030. In Wales, availability exceeds demand until the 2030s. In Northern Ireland, wood supply and demand is reported upon on an all-Ireland basis.

The conclusion to be drawn from the study is that every country of the UK has to act now to increase tree planting and to ensure that we are not losing our existing forests. Are politicians listening? Well, yes and no. >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

Steps for 2017 and beyond This is great news, but it is not likely to be enough as the beginnings of the forecasted shortfall will hit before this new planting delivers a higher future harvest. If we are to avoid a decline in investment and activity, then we need to incentivise delayed felling in the 2030s and look at additional solutions such as planting faster-growing trees to provide some of the feedstock that this important industry needs.

Glimmers of hope There has been an acceptance (especially in Scotland) that there is a problem, but this has been stymied by civil servant resistance to change grant schemes and a lack of public funding for new planting to compensate land-owners for the loss of their common agricultural policy (CAP) subsidies. In response, new productive planting has risen to an annual average of around 2,000 ha.8 Far short of the 10,000 ha that the studies indicate is necessary. However, there are a few shards of light appearing. The new Scottish minister has hit the ground running and demanded immediate and fundamental improvement. This, along with improvements to the grant scheme that Confor had suggested, appear to be bringing forward significantly increased applications to plant productive trees. There is real potential to be planting 6,000 ha of productive softwood a year in the near future. In England, Confor asked for and secured a grant to pay for the creation of new woodland plans for productive forestry and this has unlocked more than 1,000 ha of new proposals, with more to come – a transformational turnaround given that virtually no new productive forest has been planted since the beginning of the millennium. In Wales and Northern Ireland, the governments are now incentivising productive new planting. Brexit could also signal a step change in tree planting as the CAP discriminates against forestry. Forests are not eligible for annual payments made to farmers and the same payments system artificially raises the value of agricultural land. The UK will exit CAP whatever deal is reached, and if tree planting is included in future rural policy and support measures provided by governments across the UK then that will automatically increase its attractiveness to landowners. www.trada.co.uk

The WWF has estimated that global consumption of wood will treble by 2050 and it is far from clear where that will come from.9 This means that there is an onus on the UK to plant more trees and produce more wood, as well as benefit to be gained in more jobs, carbon reduction and a stronger economy. In 2017, we need to see a step change in new planting. n

Nearshoring: the industry market trend in hardwood flooring Why are firms starting to source products from Europe rather than China – and what are the market implications? Alex Davidson investigates.


number of large UK distributors and suppliers are pulling away from sourcing the majority of their wood flooring products from China. Instead, many are ‘nearshoring’ or ‘reshoring’ – sourcing products from throughout Europe – including eastern European regions. For some time, China was the default choice for offshore manufacturing and sourcing low-cost products; many businesses made the move without even considering other countries. But things are starting to change and are being steered by several strong macroeconomic factors:

1. Labour costs and competition for talent are increasing in China

Cheap, plentiful labour used to be China’s biggest advantage, but that benefit is shrinking. A recent study by Deloitte found that rising labour costs and increased competition for labour are two of the biggest challenges for Chinese companies.1 In some regions, wage inflation has remained in the double digits for the past decade.

2. Other costs are also rising In some sectors, China may no longer be the cheapest place for foreign businesses. Increasing faster compared to Europe are electricity rates, freight costs, real estate costs, corporate income tax and there is also a reduction in taxrelated incentives.

3. Companies are shortening their supply times Sourcing goods in China and shipping them half way across the world can be expensive, time consuming and risky. With an unpredictable economy causing supply fluctuations, being able to shorten supply chains and quicken response times, while reducing exposure to volatile fuel or currency fluctuations, is vital. That’s why a number of UK-based flooring distributors such as Orchard Flooring Products, Ted Todd and A&K are now sourcing products from

Floors Timber flooring

nearshore or domestic locations. In doing so, they can reduce supply chain costs, cut risk and make their businesses easier to manage.

4. China’s manufacturing competitors are steadily improving

During the past five years, nations such as India, Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand have become increasingly competitive in some industries in the production and sourcing of goods. One edge that China had over these nations was its ability to increase its massive manufacturing operations and gain economies of scale. However, some parts of eastern Europe can now offer the flooring industry the same quality board at similar prices to the Chinese producers as a result of direct government investment grants, efficient manufacturing methods, access to low-cost labour and reduced shipping costs.

How has eastern Europe become an alternative to China for UK flooring distributors? With investment and export markets in the Eurozone stalling in the past five years, eastern Europe has looked to shift its focus of growth towards higher value production and services. A combination of low start-up costs due to local government grants, access to lower cost labour and raw materials, and an established hardwood flooring market in Europe has allowed some producers to gain market share – at prices that are comparable to some Chinese producers. While western European heritage brands still have a differentiation strategy in terms of adding value – and deliver uncompromising quality and design – eastern European producers, such as Barlinek, have adopted a deliberate strategy of cost leadership.

What implications does this major trend have for retailers and end users? While China has been a big producer of solid wood flooring, European manufacturers tend to favour engineered production. Just three years ago, the market was equally divided in terms of solid and engineered wood floor sales in the UK. This year in the UK, it is estimated to be around an 80/20 split, in favour of engineered boards, with further migration towards engineered wood expected.2 As more distributors source from eastern Europe, engineered wood flooring will become the default consumer choice – and feedback from retailers, such as GL Floors, states that this wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing. www.trada.co.uk

Procuring hardwood flooring products from Europe rather than China is not without its own fundamental problems for buyers – the main one being capacity issues. China’s low prices have always been based on excess capacity and scale. The majority of flooring producers in Europe have lower capacity than their Chinese counterparts, especially within the parquet producers. As demand shifts towards European producers aligned with tight capacity, this will invariably push up the price in the long term. At face value, nothing has really changed for heritage European producers. They are still faced with new competition offering products at unsustainably low market prices. But what they can be thankful to the eastern European manufacturers for is their hand in changing the market towards selling and promoting the engineered board; quality will still reign supreme in terms of the established brands. Major trends usually affect industries and markets positively, as they force businesses to compete, innovate or die. We now operate in a marketplace that is much leaner and where consumers are much savvier. Sometimes ‘coming home’ isn’t as bad as it sounds. n

Enhancing the security of windows and doors

Paul Duggan discusses the need for compliance with Approved Document Q and the testing of products to PAS 24.


n 1 October 2016, Approved Document Q of the Building Regulations 2010 came into force following its publication earlier in the year. It provides guidance for designers, builders, installers and building owners to help them comply with the requirements of the Building Regulations and ensures that reasonable provision is made to resist unauthorised access to dwellings.

Creating an industry minimum An industry minimum requirement for security has been long overdue. Some residential doors and windows have security flaws that mean they could be opened in around 20 seconds, in some cases with minimal tools and noise, allowing easy access to a property. Homeowners deserve to have faith that their property is secure; people assume a level of security from their front door that is simply not there. Compliance with the guidance in Document Q will go a long way towards addressing these issues, adding to the existing good work that has been put in place by initiatives such as Secured by Design.

Some residential doors and windows have security flaws that mean they could be opened in around 20 seconds

Approved Document Q touches on ways of complying with the Building Regulations and one of these ways of proving the design of the product is secure is to specify doors and windows that have been tested to PAS 24:2016 Enhanced security performance requirements for door assemblies at a UKAS-approved testing laboratory. PAS 24 is a standard for enhanced security for doorsets and windows, and it has been used by industry for many years. Industry, trade associations and test laboratories have continuously engaged in amending PAS 24 since its first publication so it reacts to any change in the way doorsets and windows are attacked.

New guidance is now available for achieving minimum requirements for security


Since the introduction of Approved Document Q, PAS 24 has been going through an amendment to support this introduction of a Building Regulation and to enhance security for doorsets components such as lever handles, cylinders and letter plates that could be vulnerable from persistent attack. PAS 24 looks at the individual components and gives additional requirements that the components should comply with in addition to the complete attack of the doorset or the window. >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

Certification It is important to find out as much as possible about the certification process from experienced advisers. One issue that manufacturers may come up against is that a UKAS-approved test laboratory can only report facts, that is that a product was tested on a certain day and the test result achieved, be it pass, fail or a particular classification according to the standard. The test laboratory doesn’t make a judgment on any variant of the product other than that tested, for example variations of size, different glazing, different locks, etc. A test report could be invalid as soon as change happens, such as including a new lock or new glazing method or an increase in the size. Certification is different, and entering into a certification scheme such as CERTISECURE or Q-Mark provides a scope of approval that covers a whole range of sizes, configurations and hardware options, and it gives a level of confidence that the product meets the requirements of the approved guidance. It is anticipated that manufacturers will choose product certification to ensure all products and all future evolutions of products leaving the factory meet the requirements of Document Q, rather than relying only on a test report that is a snapshot of the product performance at one moment in time. n

Research into the certification process is highly recommended

Joinery Windows and doors

Understanding the regulations governing windows and doors Mark Milner outlines the energy efficiency improvements of the latest guidelines.


ith so many regulations governing building performance, it’s hard to keep up.’ A common cry I hear from manufacturers and installers of timber windows and doors. Certainly a lot has changed since I switched from industry to education in 2002 – a move that coincided with the publication of two new Approved Documents: • ADL1: Conservation of fuel and power in dwellings • ADL2: Conservation of fuel and power in buildings other than dwellings. Both came into effect on 1 April 2002 and were subdivisions of the previous 1995 edition. The new documents demanded significant improvements to the energy efficiency of new and replacement windows and doors, prior to which demand for single-glazed components was broadly similar to that for double-glazed. Then, a shallow rebate, just 8mm deep, was required to accommodate a single pane of (usually) 4mm or 6mm thick float glass, held in place by linseed putty. Such an arrangement today would not meet the requirements of the Building Regulations, and is permissible only in historic and traditional buildings where special considerations may apply, or as a repair to an existing window.

U-value requirements apply not only to the glazed part of a window, but also to the frame as well, including the areas of highest heat flow, namely the junction between glazing and frame. Whole window or door U-values provide an accurate measure of how much heat is being lost overall, as opposed to centre pane U-values that measure heat lost through the glass only; the latter being used to demonstrate compliance in elements that would otherwise not meet the requirements due to ‘the need to maintain the external appearance of the façade or the character of the building’ (Part L1B paragraph 4.19).

Low-E glass Successive governments have made energy loss reduction a key priority, reflected in increasingly stringent regulations governing window and door installation. In September 2000 (18 months before Approved Documents L1 and L2 came into effect), I replaced the single-glazed windows to the front of my house. An easy date to remember, the radio was broadcasting news of the escalating fuel protests as the new double-glazed windows went in. At that time, the new timber windows had to meet or better a U-value of 3.0 W/m²K. Lax by today’s standards, the requirement could be achieved simply by having windows with sealed double-glazed units ‘which incorporate two or more panes of glass or other glazing material with space between’.

Measuring heat loss Before discussing the changing regulations concerning energy efficiency, it would be useful to understand how heat loss is measured. The rate at which heat is lost through building elements, such as windows, doors and walls, is measured in watts per square metre per degree kelvin (W/m²K); this thermal transmittance is referred to in the construction industry as a U-value. The better insulating an element is, the lower the U-value will be. Consequently, the striving for ever-greater reductions in CO2 emissions has, during successive Building Regulation changes, resulted in a gradual reduction in permitted U-values. It should also be noted that the reduction in permitted U-values is slower than first predicted so as to provide a cost-effective and timescale-achievable reduction that does not penalise industry or consumers. www.trada.co.uk

By the time I was replacing the windows to my house’s rear elevation, more than two years had passed; it was 2003 and the new subdivided Approved Documents were in force. No longer could I merely rely on two panes of glass ‘with space between’ to reduce heat loss. The permitted U-value was now 2.0 W/m²K >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

Joinery Windows and doors

or lower, and could be achieved with glass specially treated with a coating designed to reflect heat back into the room. Low-emissivity glass, or low-E glass, was now the norm (see Figure 1). Low-E coatings Low-E glass, as well as helping prevent heat escaping through the window, also allows passive solar heat gain – free heat and light from the sun that passes through the glass, further contributing to the window’s thermal efficiency. Low-E coatings are available in two general types: hard coat and soft coat, the difference between the two lying in the manufacturing process. A durable hard coat is produced by bonding tin oxide to molten glass in a process known as pyrolytic. The resulting coat is extremely hard-wearing and scratch resistant. A comparatively delicate or soft coat, also prone to oxidation but capable of achieving lower U-values due to its lower emissivity, is formed using a ‘sputter’ process. Suitable only for an inner surface of a sealed unit, zinc, tin or silver is applied to a pre-cut section of glass in a vacuum chamber at room temperature.

Window Energy Ratings The primary function of a window is to allow the sun’s light and heat to enter a room, making it more inviting and comfortable. These positive benefits are not taken account of in the use of U-values as a criterion for demonstrating compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations. These shortcomings led to the establishment of an EU industry and government-supported body tasked, alongside academics from UK universities, with creating a system similar to that seen in other countries (such as the US’ National Fenestration Rating Council), for rating the energy efficiency of windows in the UK. The British Fenestration Ratings Council – now one of a number of core Glass & Glazing Federation brands banded together to form the Helix Group – developed a rating scale, similar to that used on household appliances and light bulbs.

So my own house contains both pre-2002 sealed doubleglazed units and post-2002 units. The newer insulating glass units (IGUs), with their low-E coatings, can be recognised by their slightly darkened tint, visible when viewed from an angle rather than head-on. As far back as 2003, my building inspector commented that he rarely sought documentary evidence that sealed units contained low-E glass, first, because their tint made them easily identifiable and, second, because by now, it was difficult to buy anything other than low-E glass. In addition, many sealed unit manufacturers (although not all) date-stamped their units’ spacer bars, indicating post-2002 (see Figure 2).

“U-value requirements apply not only to the glazed part of a window, but also to the frame as well, including the areas of highest heat flow, namely the junction between glazing and frame. Whole window or door U-values provide an accurate measure of how much heat is being lost overall, as opposed to centre pane U-values that measure heat lost through the glass only.”

Window Energy Ratings (WERs) were launched in March 2004 and, in July of that year, in proposals for revisions to Part L were recommended for inclusion as an alternative to, but not a replacement for, U-values in demonstrating compliance with the regulations. The new system, in taking account of solar heat gain (g-value), as well as heat loss (U-value of the frame and glazing plus losses from the air permeability of the system) and UK averaged climatic data, provided an improved measure of total energy performance and simplified the process of identifying energy efficient windows for home owners. Similar schemes from other bodies have since been introduced. Changes to Part L came into effect on 6 April 2006 with band E being the minimum level for replacement windows and band D for new windows in extensions; the required U-values were 2.0 W/m²K and 1.8 W/m²K, respectively. The same year also saw the two Part L Approved Documents further subdivided: • L1, the part that governed dwellings, became L1A and L1B dealing with new and existing dwellings respectively; and • the guidance provided by L2 on buildings other than dwellings became L2A (new buildings) and L2B (existing buildings).

WERs vs U-values Window Energy Ratings have limitations, as well as benefits, and their introduction did not signal the death knell for U-values. A WER is based on a standard frame size and configuration, with the frame system and glass combination www.trada.co.uk

specified by a BFRC-authorised manufacturer or installer based on the products available. The specified configuration is unlikely to match all windows in a property, and is capable of providing an indication only of the performance of other sizes, shapes and configurations. Its primary purpose is to provide a comparison between alternative systems and suppliers to allow the consumer to balance cost with energy performance. However, elements of the rating can be used in SAP calculations based on the actual surface area of the windows in a property. In having solar heat gain among the factors indicating the energy performance of a window, WERs have included an element that is very difficult to control. In the depths of winter, for example, when there is little sign of the sun, solar heat gain will be minimal; conversely, a south-facing elevation in the height of summer will be prone to overheating. A window with a lower U-value might, in some circumstances, be preferable to one with a higher WER. WERs are used for replacement windows in existing dwellings and new windows in extensions, but not for new builds; they are used in domestic properties, not in public or commercial buildings; and, as the name suggests, WERs are for windows only, not doors. Doors are also now included in the scheme as DSERs that can be system doors (stiles and rails) or non-system doors (composites and flush–panelled, etc).

New targets In response to the Climate Change Act 2008, the Government set a long-term target for reducing the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% from 1990 >> Timber 2017 Industry Yearbook

levels by 2050. This commitment led to further changes to Part L of the Building Regulations, and 2010 (amended) editions of the four Part L Approved Documents came into effect on 1 October of that year. The required U-values in existing dwellings (ADL1B) were now 1.6 W/m²K for windows and 1.8 W/m²K for doors, and the standard WER set at Band C; these levels have been maintained through to the current edition incorporating 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2016 amendments. So how else can the thermal efficiency of windows and glazed doors be improved? One of the factors affecting thermal efficiency in IGUs is the size of the space between the two skins of glass; a 16mm cavity is considered best in terms of efficiency and economy. An IGU with two skins of 4mm glass, separated by a 16mm spacer bar, would be 24mm thick and described as ‘four-sixteen-four’. Spacer bars with little or no metal, known as thermally improved or ‘warm edge’ spacer bars, perform best. Although glass is a good conductor of heat, dehydrated air sealed within the cavity is not, and heat loss by conduction is reduced. Replacing the dehydrated air with an inert gas reduces heat loss further (see Figure 4). Argon’s lower thermal conductivity (around 67% that of air) and relatively low price make it a popular choice. Krypton is more efficient still, particularly in the narrower cavities of triple-glazed units, but, at around £35 to £40 per cubic metre compared to Argon’s 50p per cubic metre, is far more expensive, with xenon costing multiple times that of Krypton. Triple-glazed units, while achieving lower U-values, require thicker frames and heavier-duty ironmongery to carry the extra weight.

A brighter future The glazed part of a window or door had, for a long time, been considered a building’s weak point in terms of heat loss. While walls could be made thicker with the inclusion of more insulation, glazed areas, by comparison, had limited scope for improved thermal efficiency. During my days in industry, when single-glazing was widespread, lowering U-values meant reducing window sizes. Modern IGUs, however, with their low-E coatings, gas-filled cavities and warm edge spacer bars have centre pane U-values significantly lower than whole window U-values. While the modern way to lower U-values is to maximize glazed areas, window and door system manufacturers are continuing to invest in research into materials and design, for example PVC-U systems with multiple chambers and infills, aluminium windows with increased thermal breaks, and timber windows with composite materials that provide increased resistance through the frame. n

Eurocode 5 design software timbersizerPro and timberconnectionsPro are online calculation tools for architects, engineers and builders based on the Eurocode 5 design code (EC5). Using timber sizes readily available in the UK market, timbersizerPro suggests appropriate cross-sections for various timber strength classes, or joist depth. This allows architects and engineers to specify the most appropriate timbers available, or ones that give the optimum floor/ceiling depth. timberconnectionsPro calculates the load capacity of individual fasteners for various timber strength classes. It also enables users to calculate connection capacities with nails, screws, bolts, dowels and coach screws in two- and three-member combinations of timber and steel. Both applications enable users to generate instant PDF reports for records and Building Control purposes, and to customise their designs, while timberconnectionsPro also includes minimum edge distance and fastener spacing details in the PDF report.
