Institute of Carpenters teams up with STA

Posted: Mar 27, 2019

We are delighted to announce that we have recently welcomed The Structural Timber Association (https://www.structuraltimber.co.uk/) to our membership.

 

The Structural Timber Association (STA) is the UK’s leading timber association, representing over 600 members from the structural timber industry including suppliers, manufacturers, erectors and designers.

 

The STA supports members through education, training, and technical guidance. Recent documents produced by the STA include the new Designers’ Guide to Structural Timber Frame Fire Safety During Construction video, the Structural Timber Frame Estimating Guide and the CDM Technical Advice Note.

 

The STA ensures the continued professional development of all members by hosting events such as seminars and factory tours, as well as exhibiting at leading industry trade shows - providing the opportunity for networking and high-level industry discussions.

 

Additionally, working closely with such sector bodies as the HSE and BRE, the STA aims to be the focal point of industry research, with outcomes from its Technical Committee demonstrating that structural timber is the most sustainable form of construction in the UK.
