The benefits of registering
This website, which is funded by TRADA (Timber Research and Development Association) contains a wealth of
technical information relevant to the timber trade, building professionals and contractors.
We have made a large proportion of the technical information on the site free to anyone who registers
with us using the simple form above.
TRADA exists to help grow markets for timber through providing technical information support.
So there are no catches to this offer – we are simply using membership funds to meet our objectives
as well as yours.
As a registered user you will not be inundated with unnecessary emails. We only send out short useful
news items covering issues such as new technical information available on line, changes to codes and
regulations, training and conferences, new books available on timber etc. We send out no more than an
average of 2 enews a month and it is easy to unsubscribe. All that we ask is that you receive one and
see if it is helpful. The vast majority of those registering with us are happy to receive our enews items
even though we make it very easy to unsubscribe.
Accessing all our information and membership benefits
Whilst we do allow access to a lot of our information for free, there are technical areas on the website
which are for paying members only. Membership, which pays for this website,
obviously needs to carry unique privileges.
Membership is very reasonable priced, starting at less than £200 + VAT for a
sole practising building professional. Click here to view the full details of
the benefits and how to join.
