    TTJ Timber Trades Journal

    TTJ announces Wood and Wellness conference

    TTJ is to hold a major conference on wood’s role in the current trend towards health and wellbeing in the built environment.

    The Wood and Wellness event, announced at the TTJ Awards in London on September 21 before a gathering of 400 timber sector guests, will take place early next year.
    “It has long been believed that exposure to the natural world can have a positive impact on health and wellbeing,” said TTJ group editor Stephen Powney.
    “Now this world of wellness is becoming a mega trend in the built environment, with building and interior design increasingly taking into account the health and wellbeing of occupants.”
    Wood and Wellness will be held on February 13 in London and is aimed to educate and inform both the timber sector and architects/interior designers and construction professionals.
    The event will cover latest research, case studies and panel discussion on a subject which could represent an opportunity for increased specification of timber products.
    Studies examining the positive impact that greater exposure to nature/natural products can have on health and wellbeing have highlighted impressive benefits, including increased staff productivity, improved learning, higher attendance rates, faster recovery from serious illness and a greater general sense of wellbeing.
    TTJ will bring together an expert panel, from a variety of sectors, at the event to discuss the role that sustainable timber can play.
    “In a world of digital disruption and the internet of things, could our long term health and wellbeing be rooted in something as old as the trees?” added TTJ’s Stephen Powney.
    For more information on the event contact Stephen Powney on 020 8269 7810 or Chidi Adilih on 0203 096 2607 / [email protected]

    Timber Industry innovation

    CTI BLOG – THE 4 WONDERS OF THE TIMBER INDUSTRY

    CTI BLOG - THE 4 WONDERS OF THE TIMBER INDUSTRY Puidukoda

    This guest blog post is by Andrzej Manka, Sales Manager at Timber Expo.

    When we think of innovative sectors, the timber industry probably isn’t the first that springs to mind. Many believe this industry is very traditional, conservative and reluctant to change.

    In a word – die-hard! This is especially true when you compare it with other industries: new tech or finance for example, not to mention AI. In our ultra-modern world, we appreciate constant growth, astonishing productivity and impressive innovation above all else.

    But this stereotype doesn’t match with the reality; the timber industry is now up there at the top of UK and international innovation lists. Admittedly, these represent only a small minority of timber companies, but their success gives the industry dynamics and makes it the leading power in the whole construction business.

    As Daniel Kahneman states in his brilliant book “Thinking, Fast and Slow”, stereotypical and simplified thinking is a characteristic for the “Fast system” of thinking, the type we use to understand something immediately and without any unnecessary effort. This way of thinking and making sense of the world evoke an image of the timber industry as rather backward, and poor in innovation. However, there is a second way of thinking, the “Slow system,” which enables us to go through all important details and deal with the more complex issues.

    When you take the time to study the timber industry, as I have been doing for the past 11 months, you will discover so many astonishing and innovative projects in the industry that you’ll likely fall in love in timber quite easily. Not to mention that wood is beautiful, and makes our homes and offices so much more aesthetic, natural and trendy.

    “A timber revolution is in the air.” – this is the first sentence of the description of the fantastic exhibition in Roca London Gallery.

    “Construction heading towards a ‘timber revolution” – proclaims another exciting headline from a video published by BBC

    Alex de Rijke, of dRMM described wood to be the new concrete: “Concrete is a 20th-century material. Steel is a 19th-century material. Wood is a 21st-century material.”

    Timber is becoming the leading material in construction industry in the UK and is nearly 30% of the whole construction projects.

    The value of the timber industry to the British economy is £7 billion.

    So let’s have a look at the four wonders of the timber industry. They are not really “wonders” in a literal sense; they are actually the result of creative, courageous and hard working timber specialists. This is, of course, a very subjective (dare I say even controversial?) list of “Four wonders.” It’s more like an invitation for us to discuss certain achievements in the timber industry. 

    One other thing- this list list contains different categories like technology, production, and architecture. Maybe it’s a bit risky to compare projects that belong to different science or business activities, but let’s try. 

    1. Transparent wood

    CTI BLOG - THE 4 WONDERS OF THE TIMBER INDUSTRY PuidukodaInvented first in 1992 by German researcher Siegfried Fink and then, independently developed by Professor Lars Berglund. This Swedish KTH research group, led by Professor Liangbing Hu from The University of Maryland, have elaborated a method to remove the color and some chemicals from wood. Thanks to that, the wood becomes 90% transparent. Potential application of this invention is very far-reaching and the wood could be used in construction, interior design and even the car industry.

    2. Engineered wood

    CTI BLOG - THE 4 WONDERS OF THE TIMBER INDUSTRY PuidukodaOn the image above you can see an example Cross-laminated-timber housing in east London; “a 10-storey carbon-neutral apartment complex in London’s Dalston, the “world’s largest cross-laminated timber building”.

    Engineered wood technologies are what makes the timber & construction industry so dynamically developing and profitable. The most used in the construction industry are plywood, fibreboard, cross-laminated timber (CLT), laminated strand lumber, and many more. Because of the use of these timber products, it’s been predicted many times during the last decade that timber will be the main building material in XXI century.

    3. Timber skyscrapers

    CTI BLOG - THE 4 WONDERS OF THE TIMBER INDUSTRY PuidukodaAt the moment, the world’s tallest timber building is a 14-storey apartment block in Bergen, Norway. However, we are expecting a lot of new timber skyscrapers in the UK, USA, Europe and Asia in future. One of the advanced projects that should be started very soon is an 80-storey, 300m high wooden building integrated within the Barbican (on the image above). Around 1,000 new flats will be build in this impressive 93,000-square-metre timber skyscraper project.

    Timber skyscrapers are not only stunning examples of strong “timber trends” in contemporary architecture, but they also bring sustainable development to big cities, as well as reducing carbon emissions.

    4. Museum Globe of Science and Innovation

    CTI BLOG - THE 4 WONDERS OF THE TIMBER INDUSTRY PuidukodaAre you familiar with the history of the Internet? If so, you’ll know that Tim Berners Lee invented the World Wide Web when he worked in The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) based in Geneva, Switzerland. The same organization has built the Globe of Science and Innovation, a fine example of outstanding construction. The museum of modern technology, made of wood, is a perfect concept. It creates a very special atmosphere for those who wants to stop for a moment and contemplate the nature of technological innovation.

    There are so many more impressive wooden wonders of the world! You can find literally hundreds of great examples. One of my favorites is The Splinter, a wooden sports car with a twin-supercharged 4.6 litre V8.

    Not to mention an interesting initiative from Metsa, one of the world’s leading timber companies. They have just started the Open Source Wood initiative, a project to encourage innovation and the sharing of knowledge inside the timber industry. Metsä Wood’s Executive Vice President, Esa Kaikkonen, explains why the project was established: “Not enough knowledge about modular wood design and building is shared, so wood construction remains niche. There is plenty of innovation but it is difficult to find, so Open Source Wood is our solution. We believe that with open collaboration the industry can achieve significant growth.”

    There is still many ways in which the timber industry can evolve, but there is no doubt that the timber revolution has already started and it looks very exciting!

    Grenfell Tower Timber Fire Regulations

    Tightening of fire regulations loom TTJ

    There has been a lot of talk in the timber industry about the potential knock-on effects of the Hackitt Review into the Grenfell fire.

    Now the report is out, we are left in no doubt that regulations will be tightened and enforcement of building standards will move to a higher level.

    Use of combustible cladding in high-rise construction was not banned in the review recommendations, although the government will consult on such a move. In light of the pressure for a ban from multiple groups, including RIBA, building firms and Grenfell survivors, it would not be surprising to see a ban still go ahead.

    But it is poor building practice and installation work and inadequate enforcement of Building Regulations that are at the heart of the matter.

    Timber cladding was not involved in the Grenfell fire, and though it has been used on some notable high-rise projects, its use is more commonly low to medium-rise. But as has been warned by Timber Trade Federation president Charles Hopping in his industry talks up and down the country these past months, timber cladding and other wood products are inevitably being pulled into the debate because of the focus on combustibility.

    The building industry is clearly going to have to up its game to deliver products that are fit for purpose and we can expect a higher level of scrutiny of how products and systems perform and are installed even if they are not high-rise applications.

    So, close working across the supply chain between timber product suppliers and their customers, enhanced testing and a clear united message from the timber industry will be required in dealing with the fallout from this review.

    Suppliers will need to be prepared to further their efforts to understand the applications for their products and improve the flow of information and technical advice further down the supply chain to safeguard the continued specification of their products. Because one thing is abundantly clear from Grenfell: you can’t rely on people down the chain to always do the right thing.

    British Woodworking Federation CEO Iain McIlwee welcomed the review recommendations and said a deeprooted problem existed in the building industry regarding fire safety.

    He cited the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s new guidance that encouraged an emphatic endorsement of UKAS-accredited third-party certification of product and competence of installation, with inspection picked up as fundamental to fire safety reform.

    The recommendation of tougher penalties in the Hackitt Review underlines the fact the landscape has been forever changed by Grenfell and it will impact all areas of the construction sector.

    into the batten.

    • Minimum 2 face fixings required for boards up to 150mm wide and additional fixings for

    wider sections. We recommend maximum board widths of 150mm to reduce overall

    shrinkage or swelling.

    • Fix nails or screws approx. 20mm from the end and edge, avoiding splitting of the boards.

    Some timbers require predrilling, refer to CE Marking and DOP – downloadable copies are

    available on our website.

    • Do not secret fix through the tongue or groove. · All fixings to lay flush with the surface of

    the cladding.

    • Fix the cladding, ideally, at 450mm maximum centres.

    Board Configuration and Layout

    • For horizontal rainscreen the Grooves need to be to the bottom to minimise the collection of water or pollutants.
    • Vertical Claddings need to be chamfered at the ends for drainage into the cavity.
    • Minimum 2mm gaps should be left around the boards for expansion, larger gaps to be left

    for differential movement, especially in timber frame constructions.

    • Allow between 6mm to 10mm for drainage gaps on corner profiles, ends, sides or other

    materials (check the compatibility of the cladding with other materials in the construction,

    to avoid/minimise corrosion and staining).

    • Cladding to be installed at least 250mm above ground level.
    • Store cladding away from direct sunlight, rain etc before installation or during acclimatising to minimise the risk of splitting, checking or distortion.

    Finger-Jointed Cladding All finger jointed cladding is not supplied for load bearing, please ensure an external quality coating is applied and maintained to ensure you achieve optimum service life from the glue lines.

    Waney Edge Cladding We recommend treatment for waney edged cladding due to the presence of bark and sap if ordered untreated.

    Factory Finished / Coated Claddings

    Always keep separating membranes between the layers during handling and transit to protect damage to the lacquer and sticking to surfaces. It is important to follow applied product manufactures guidelines due to the large variety of finishes, coatings and treatments available.

    Ensure all edges and sides are sealed prior to installation, including any fixing holes.

    All factory finished products need minimum annual maintenance i.e. to clean surfaces any pollutants moreover touch up for any degradation.

     

    General Maintenance Comments Timber will weather, oxidise and is susceptible to fungal / mould staining if unprotected or untreated, changing the aesthetics of the timber. During the early weathering process the timber surface may also show signs of variations in colour, which should gradually even out, this depends on exposure. Colour variation in wood is an inherent characteristic of wood i.e. Between and within board variation of colour should be expected in wood. We provide a sample service upon request to help in the selection of cladding species. Annual maintenance is recommended; i.e. basic care and maintenance for uncoated or untreated wood, depending on the type of pollution present, would be to wash off with water (do not flood), or sand it off. Bleaching can also be used to help remove stains. The above are general guidelines but cover some of the key aspects, as every project needs to be considered individually. All products offered above are available from Timber Focus and, for detailed timber cladding fitting instructions, copies of BM TRADAs External Timber Cladding installation manual are available to purchase from Timber Focus.

There are many variations of Larch e.g European Larch, Siberian Larch etc but we ensure we supply Siberian Larch originating from Russia.All our Siberian Larch is from sustainable sources and is FSC Certified.

    We provide Siberian larch for decking, cladding and fencing applications. We have the facility to finish the larch in a number of ways e.g staining with a UV pigment e.g Sikkens light oak, we can also apply finishes to give it a pre weathered rustic character look.

    Siberian Larch, larix sibirica also known as meleze de siberie, sibirische larche LAGM, AS.It has a straight grain, a fine, uniform texture and is rather heavy with an average density of 590Kg/m3 at 12% Moisture Content drilling is recommended. Used extensively for cladding & decking applications as it falls under durability characteristics Class 3 according to BSEN350:2016. Care has to be taken when selecting & applying coatings as larch is resinous. Use annular ring shanks stainless steel on all claddings, face fixing where applicable on external cladding to minimize the risk of boards popping out of fixings and use stainless steel decking screws for deck boards. It is important to note that larch has a tendency to split on the surface when exposed to the elements. Timber quality we supply is  AB Grade Kiln dry Average 18% Moisture content which is equivalent or better than the standard Grade of Class 2/3 given in BS1186-3:1990 section 4 Class 2/3 of which class 3 is traditionally considered adequate for cladding and decking applications. This is considerably a better quality to the Saw falling S/F I-IV Grades found in most timber merchants. Knots are a present feature in the product and grade and should not be considered a defect. Stains tend to show easily including surface mould if not cleaned or maintained well. Regular cleaning is recommended depending on use and exposure as a minimum once a year to minimize slip risk from a build-up of debris more frequency is recommended for horizontal areas e.g decking surfaces. It is always advisable to order 10% more to allow for waste due to trim or crosscutting loss. We help with specifications e.g NBS H21 Timber weather boarding Timber Cladding specifications contact Timber Focus to get support for specifications and standards e.g BS8605 or BS1186-3 CE Marking to products to BS EN 14915: 2013 These Goods come with the FSC Certification and Timber Focus approval.
