Introducing the essential design principles involved in the creation of elegant, sustainable timber buildings, this book offers architects, engineers and other construction professionals practical advice on 21st century timber design.

It covers the material selection, structural design and connections details of sustainable timber buildings through:

* consideration of wood and the heritage of timber construction
* a review of modern techniques to improve durability, fire resistance and predictability of structural timber elements and their vital connections
*analysis of the architectural and structural options, from roundwood shells through glulam arches and gridshells to long span hybrid structures
* case studies from around the world illlustrating the principles discussed and the potential of timber construction.
" Sustainable Timber Design brings its extensive information together in an excellent style. it is a good read - a flowing text that is accessible and absorbing. It brings theory and principles to life through a superb array of case studies, beautifully illustrated, which shouw how to us timer and wood products in practice. it will inspire innovative thinking." Foreword from Sir Peter Bonfield.
