In addition, TRADA Technology will be developing a CPD that addresses the typical concerns building control officers and insurers have regarding the use of wood on projects and how these can be addressed.

BM TRADA’s Eurocode 5 Connections workshop has been designed for engineers and engineering technicians who want to understand how EC5 affects connections. The half-day workshop takes place on 5 December and covers dowel type fasteners, Johansen theory, embedment strength, yield moment, axial effects, the rope effect and how to calculate lateral load capacities.
The new Timber Frame Q-Mark certification scheme (replacing the ’Interim’ Scheme) aims to improve the quality and performance of timber frame used within the construction industry plus help manufacturers prepare for CE marking. Obtaining third party certification through the BM TRADA Q-Mark scheme will offer a range of benefits for members including helping to generate new and repeat business.
The Timber in Construction Awards, showcasing the best in timber design, buildings and products, takes place in November at The Point, Lancashire County Cricket Ground. BM TRADA is also sponsoring the ‘Large Engineered Timber Structure of the Year’ category that recognises the giant strides timber has made in large-scale building projects in recent years.
BM TRADA had very positive feedback from delegates attending first practical interactive training session of the new introductory course about the timber industry that included an introduction to softwood, covering common species, sizes, grades, preservation, handling and quality. Check-out the details the five further training courses in this initiative from BM TRADA, in association with TRADA.
BM TRADA announce the dates for two regional seminars aimed at architects and engineers as part of its CPD (Continuing Professional Development) contract, recently awarded for the UK’s Wood for Good that promotes the suitability and sustainability of wood as a building material to industry professionals such as architects, design engineers and other specifiers.
