Timber frame training dates announced


With the latest research showing that timber frame housing is set for significant growth in 2014, BM TRADA’s unveiling of the 2014 dates for its popular timber frame training courses couldn’t be more timely.

MTW Research has revealed the timber frame house building market is set to increase in 2014, with sales rising by £40 million. It stated that less ‘snagging’ and reduced on site build times continue to offer good reasons to choose timber frame over brick and block construction.

For anyone looking to make headway in this market, BM TRADA’s timber frame training days are a must-attend event. Delivered by members of the BM TRADA frameCHECK team, who regularly attend sites to provide best practice advice, or assist in solving problems, the courses are written to complement BM TRADA’s fifth edition ‘Timber Frame Construction’ book.

The training course aims to provide a better overall understanding of timber frame during design, construction phase and in use. Course content includes: Building Regulations, thermal bridging, air tightness, fire safety; acoustic performance, and cladding.

Feedback from attendees is always positive. Les Morrison, Chartered Architect, Les Morrison Architects said:

“The Timber Frame Construction training day at BM TRADA provided concise information indicating various means to construct buildings bearing in mind practicable implications, sustainable life cycle management/costs, construction sequence/modes/regulations and technical details. Professionals engaged in the building industry need look no further than BM TRADA for such advice and expertise.”

Aimed at members of the timber frame industry, contractors, architects, specifiers and insurance companies, the courses take place at BM TRADA’s High Wycombe headquarters on March 11, May 7, September 25 and November 5.

The cost per person including the Timber Frame Construction Book is £219 + VAT for TRADA members (£189 without the book) and £269 + VAT for non-members (£229 without the book). The course can be booked online at www.bmtrada.com/event/timber-frame-construction or contact the training department on 01494 569620 or email timbertraining@bmtrada.com.
