Cross Laminated Timber Course filling up fast


The first date for TRADA Technology Ltd’s new training course in cross-laminated timber is fast approaching – and online bookings are already being taken.

The new uses for cross-laminated timber are receiving positive comment from many building critics. It brings with it many advantages including a visually appealing structure, built in fire resistance and fantastic green credentials.

Delivered by members of the TRADA Technology frameCHECK team, who regularly attend sites to provide best practice advice, or assist in solving problems, the course, which takes place on June 5 at TRADA Technology’s High Wycombe headquarters, explores how cross-lam can be used, its benefits and pitfalls.

The new course is written to complement TRADA Technology’s ‘Innovative Timber Construction’ book.

This recent TRADA publication has been written to expand on information provided on some alternative forms of timber construction mentioned in Timber Frame Construction 5th Edition. Four of the most common types of alternative timber walls and roofs are explored, including cross-laminated timber.

The course is designed to provide a broad overview of the subject and the specifics of building with cross laminated timber. Course content includes: manufacture, pre-processing off site, design principles and detailing, hybrid forms, shrinkage, fire and disproportionate collapse.

The cost per person including the Innovative Timber Construction Book is £179 + VAT for TRADA members (£159 without the book) and £219 + VAT for non-members (£199 without the book). To book, visit www.tradatechnology.co.uk or contact TRADA Training on 01494 569620/ training@trada.co.uk
