TRADA publication Off-site and industrialised timber construction: Delivering quality and efficiency 2nd edition has now been added to Books Online.

 

An authoritative guide for designers, construction professionals and manufacturers, it provides a detailed history of off-site timber construction and demonstrates how it can increase efficiency and sustainability.

 

In addition to a brand-new chapter featuring recent case studies, which showcases how off-site and other non-traditional methods of timber construction have been used to successfully complete a project brief, the new edition expands on the different types of off-site construction available and includes the latest technological developments that have advanced in the past decade, such as:

 

  • mobile and digital manufacturing;
  • building information modelling (BIM);
  • mechanisation, automation and robotics;
  • computer-aided design (CAD);
  • computer-aided manufacturing (CAM); and
  • augmented and virtual reality.
