This new publication provides design and best practice guidance on:
  • Structural stability and robustness (disproportionate collapse) for buildings up to seven storeys in height
  • Fire safety
  • Differential movement
  • Construction benchmarking
  • Construction process and building tolerances.

The publication is based on the lessons learned from the six-storey TF2000 building, the first of its kind in the world. It includes the results of monitoring during construction and structural and fire tests undertaken on the completed building as part of a BRE/TRADA Technology research programme. It focuses on aspects specific to the design and construction of multi-storey, platform frame buildings. For information on the general design and detailing of timber frame, readers are referred to the TRADA Technology book, 'Timber Frame Construction'.
