To help engineers and designers to get to grips with the practicalities and complexities of timber frame, BM TRADA has introduced an essential one-day course that will take place on May 1 and September 30 at its High Wycombe headquarters.
This new course looks at the fundamentals of timber frame construction from an engineering perspective and should help engineers and designers involved in the industry gain an in-depth understanding of how these systems work.
The day starts with an introduction to the concept of timber frame, identifying various types and components of construction, design detailing and best practice guidance on how these components should correctly merge to give a trouble-free building.
The afternoon session cements the understanding gained in the morning with engineering input and design examples to support the concepts discussed.
Aimed firmly at engineers and timber frame designers, delegates will gain a thorough grounding in timber frame construction from the engineers’ perspective. This will include an in-depth look at methods of construction, connection detailing, principles of timber engineering, guidance on standards and design examples.
The course - Timber frame construction for engineers - costs £189 + VAT for TRADA members and £229 + VAT for non-members.
