As the UK’s leading organisation representing the offsite timber construction sector, the Structural Timber Association’s mission is to enhance quality and drive product innovation through technical guidance and research, underpinned by a members’ quality standard assessment – STA Assure. This scheme offers reassurances to the construction community that our members meet or even exceed current legislation and regulatory requirements.
By exploiting advanced offsite manufacturing technology to increase capacity, structural timber systems are factory produced to exacting standards for onsite installation, improving resource efficiency – delivering exceptional quality and minimal defects.
Innovative structural timber technology enhances construction schedules, delivering cost and programme certainty, developing airtight and energy efficient buildings at a rapid rate – reducing capital and on-going running costs.
Robust timber solutions such as Structural Insulated Panel Systems, Timber Frame, Timber Cassettes, Glued Laminated Timber and Cross Laminated Timber, offer almost unlimited possibilities in the creation of structures that combine functional and load-bearing characteristics, to meet architectural aspirations.
