End of project summary

The project finished in December 2017. 

Funding was used to develop six timber frame design and manufacture workbooks. These workbooks are high quality, use the best available evidence and are aligned to the Structural Timber Association’s Timber Frame Competency Award Scheme (TFCAS), and are available for members on the STA website.

Dissemination has just started so the impact across this sector is unknown.
