  • Site check: the timber frame pocket book describes on-site best practice in the construction of timber frame buildings, providing an essential guide for site managers, timber frame erectors, contractors and site inspectors. Prepared by frameCHECK experts for TRADA in collaboration with the technical adviser to the Structural Timber Association, this book covers the most important construction processes involved in completing the superstructure, with illustrated 'Do' and 'Do not' sections for added clarity.

    If, as the site manager, you're advised by a sub-contractor that their method of installation is "the way we've always done it" how do you satisfy yourself that this is the correct method? And do you understand the importance of keeping timber dry on site? Site check: the timber frame pocket guide is an essential resource for ensuring you are well-informed and for checking the quality of the work done on site under your watch.

    The best of both of the TRADA and the STA timber frame pocket guides is now combined into a single new book with new drawings throughout and updated sections, with additional information included on party wall cavity insulation and on differential movement. It's available in a handy pocket-sized wiro bound format you can keep it with you at all times. It's an excellent accompaniment to TRADA's Timber frame construction manual, which provides timber frame design guidance, and is also available from this shop.
