TRADA: the leading authority on wood TRADA (the Timber Research and Development Association) is an internationally recognised centre of excellence serving the timber and woodworking industries, their suppliers and customers.

RADA is a not-for-profit, membership-based organisation, managed by an independently elected Board of Directors, whose primary role is to support its members’ needs and enhance its reputation through the careful application of TRADA’s resources. Through TRADA’s unique relationship with its sole-appointed service provider, BM TRADA, members are assured that all membership subscription revenues are invested in its wideranging programme of information creation and delivery. The telephone advisory helpline works hand-in-hand with TRADA’s website, which maintains a comprehensive and up-todate library of independent, authoritative design and technical information in the form of books, software and downloadable materials. It is a complete, interactive resource covering all aspects of timber design, specification and use, and will make every project involving timber easier and faster to deliver. Some of TRADA’s most popular features are available for all users including a searchable Wood Species Database and a case study area full of innovative timber building examples. Subscribing to full TRADA membership unlocks online design tools that assist with cross-sections and connections, the full text of many popular TRADA publications, and more than 300 downloadable documents – including Detail Drawings, Wood Information Sheets and Research Summaries – available for reference.

TRADA members enjoy 35% off all TRADA publications and special offers on other publishers’ books, including 10% off British Standards, at the online TRADA Bookshop. Members are also eligible for discounts on selected training courses offered by BM TRADA, including topics such as timber frame, timber grading, fire doors and management systems. TRADA membership is available to anyone with an interest in timber, both in the UK and internationally, and all membership subscription revenues are applied to TRADA’s unrivalled research and information programme. Membership is offered in the following categories: • Timber Industry membership is open to companies involved in the production, trade or manufacture of timber or woodbased products. It also includes suppliers of products used in conjunction with timber, such as treatments, finishes and fittings. A new band has been created for small designers/makers. • Specifier membership is open to organisations or individuals who design, specify and/or use timber, and to industry associations, local authorities and other controlling bodies. • Contractor membership is open to organisations or individuals that are building contractors, housebuilders or self-builders. • Academic access is an online service operated on the TRADA website.
