InFutuReWood: use and reuse of wood building components
||
A promising use for secondary timber is in secondary engineered wood products (EWPs) like cross laminated secondary timber (CLST) or glue laminated secondary timber (GLST). These products offer enhanced structural performance, and also allow the combination of new timber and secondary timber to balance out potential uncertainty or lower mechanical...

In-Situ Timber Maintenance
In-Situ Timber Maintenance
||
Maintaining timber structures properly will prevent future costly repair, by addressing early signs of fungal attack, insect infestation, building movement, overloading, water damage, fissures, fire, and accidental damage.

Timber Damage by Insects and Fungi
Timber Damage by Insects and Fungi
||
Different wood-decaying organisms feed on wood and can deface or degrade timber. When damage is found, identifying which insects or fungi are responsible both informs the repairs required and the approaches for future prevention.

In-Situ Timber Assessment
In-Situ Timber Assessment
||
In-situ timber needs careful surveying to check structural integrity without damaging or affecting the timber itself. In-situ assessment methods can provide useful initial information before engaging in non-destructive testing.

Lightweight Timber Frame Construction
||
As a renewable resource, lightweight timber frame has lower embodied energy than comparable building materials. It also achieves excellent thermal and acoustic performance, and high durability.

Offsite Timber Construction
Modern Methods and Offsite Timber Construction
||
Modern methods of construction focus on offsite construction techniques, including factory production and pre-assembly of components, to build faster and more efficiently than traditional construction approaches.
