During the week of the Ecobuild exhibition, BDA Founder Professor Nico Hendriks and BDA Technical Manager Paul Oakley spoke at the lunches held for the Structural Timber Association.

New RIBA president Ben Derbyshire, QS Ian Dacre, whose practice, Rider Levett Bucknall has worked with the STA on an estimating guide and costing exercise, and senior figures from the Construction Products Association also spoke at the lunches. The event saw issues facing the industry addressed as it rises to meet the challenge of delivering 300,000 homes a year.

The STA is made up of companies who make, supply or install structural timber products or systems and also companies supplying services to the sector. The company has introduced its STA Assured schemes covering different parts of the sector, aiming to maintain high standards.

STA Assured Gold is the highest achievable level and is for products and systems supplied to construction sites, including Structural Insulated Panels and framing systems as well as trussed rafters and roof systems.

Kiwa BDA Agrément successfully meets the requirements of the Gold scheme. The requirements of Building Regulations for the products or systems concerned are considered for the assessments, as well as NHBC or other non-statutory requirements.

It is also ensured that maintenance of the agreed and approved specification for the product or system is met every time it is made or assembled.
