Innovation and sustainability. Wood products for architects

TRADA image

Recent advances in timber technology and engineering have expanded the potential of building with wood. The development of new products and component manufacturing has allowed the construction of longer spans, the erection of multi-storey timber frame buildings, the forming of compound curved surfaces, the volumetric prefabrication and modular systems and durable, non-toxic claddings and finishes.

This brochure, published by wood. for good. keeps architects abreast of the new developments in timber engineering and lists the benefits and applications of a number of timber innovations including glulam, plywood, heat treated wood and engineered timber beams.
