Timber construction manual



Since 1952, the AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF TIMBER CONSTRUCTION has been the national technical trade association of the structural glued laminated timber industry. AITC-recommended building and design codes for wood-based structures are considered authoritative in the United States building industry.


American Institute of Timber Construction (AITC) was founded in 1952 to be the national trade association for the structural glued laminated timber (glulam) industry. In 2013 West Coast Lumber Inspection Bureau assumed the Structural Glued Laminated Timber Certification Program of the American Institute of Timber Construction.


with some 600 photos and 4000 drawings and plans, the Timber Construction Manual is a comprehensive and indispensable reference work in the specialist literature on timber. It looks at all types of timber and timber materials, also presenting detailed information on the current norms and standards. Chapters cover the basic principles of working with timber, providing detailed information on subjects such as heat, noise insulation, fire protection treatment. The significance of timber with particular reference to ecology is also investigated. Timber as a load-bearing material is considered, and topics such as new methods of joining, transport and montage are documented. The second part of the volume presents a large number of built examples which feature some "classic" structures but focus chiefly on more recent buildings. The spectrum presented ranges from heavy-load bridges to multi-storey residential buildings. The second part of the examples looks specifically at topics such as facades, building skins etc.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With the release today of its U.S. Mass Timber Construction Manual, WoodWorks - Wood Products Council says it is filling an information gap and addressing a recurring issue in the market. With so many developers and design teams pursuing mass timber, there is a need for practical training and education to help general contractors (GCs) successfully bid and complete projects. The manual is intended to give contractors and installers a framework for the planning, procurement, and management of these projects, and to provide a bridge from their experience with other systems. It will be an integral part of the WoodWorks Construction Management Program as well as partner programs with construction workforce training centers and university construction management departments across the U.S.


The mass timber family of products includes cross-laminated timber (CLT), nail-laminated timber (NLT), dowel-laminated timber (DLT), and glue-laminated timber (glulam or GLT). While intended primarily for GCs and installers, the U.S. Mass Timber Construction Manual is a resource for anyone interested in the construction of buildings using these materials. Mass timber draws installation techniques from other construction types, so people with concrete, precast, tilt-up, and structural steel experience can readily adapt to a mass timber system. However, understanding how mass timber differs from other building systems is key to cost effectiveness. The manual includes information on the entire construction process, from preconstruction through fabrication, moisture control, installation, close-out, and turnover.


WoodWorks funding partners include the Softwood Lumber Board, USDA Forest Service, and Forestry Innovation Investment. The U.S. Mass Timber Construction Manual was developed with primary funding from the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Rural Communities, in collaboration with WoodWorks' mass timber manufacturing partners in the U.S. and Canada.


WoodWorks held the first CLT symposium in the U.S. in 2013 and, since then, has helped hundreds of project teams realize successful mass timber buildings. It is also a leading provider of education and resources related to wood buildings, including the Mass Timber Design Manual developed in partnership with Think Wood. Last year, WoodWorks also launched a new online platform, the WoodWorks Innovation Network (WIN), which includes a map of mass timber projects built or under construction and information on their project teams.

INTRODUCTION 6 THE SOLID TIMBER MANUAL 2.0 The Solid Timber Manual is a detailed reference work for architects, planners, builders and executing workers, and investors who are interested in solid timber construction solutions. The manual was created by two partners sharing one vision: Both want to develop and provide the right systems for living space worth living and for the construction of sustainable buildings. This motto brings together binderholz and Saint-Gobain Rigips Austria, and thereby unites them to form a perfect team because every building is a symbiosis of the most diverse materials. A special combination is the connection of binderholz cross laminated timber CLT BBS and dry construction systems. The benefits of one material support those of the other. The manual explains briefly the advantages of timber construction, offers valuable information on the topic of environmental protection and explains details of building physics. In specific, this concerns fireproofing, sound and heat insulation. The most important and comprehensive chapter describes tested structural assemblies. The revised Solid Timber Manual 2.0 continues to offer all system solutions of the previous version, but it has been expanded for improved comparisons, new and comprehensive results, more information about the topic of sustainability, and more detailed breakdowns of a variety of subjects relating to solid timber construction.


Load-bearing structures and building skins. The state-of-the-art reference work on timber construction for architects and engineersThe functional efficiency of modern timber structures is still underestimated. A close collaboration between architects and engineers is necessary in this area - more so than in almost any other field of architecture. The aesthetic quality of exposed timber structures can have a great effect on the architectural form of a building, just as architectural design concepts have a major influence on the form of the structure. Both aspects are treated in depth in this comprehensive standard work.With some 600 photos and 4000 drawings and plans, the Timber Construction Manual is a comprehensive and indispensable reference work in the specialist literature on timber.
