Execution of timber buildings
Finnish Association of Construction Product Industries RTT (Finland)
The execution of structures may be defined as a holistic process during which a building is realized, starting from the client needs and definition of the design requirements, all the way to the construction methods and setting of requirements for the works in the construction site. Several countries have recently developed (or are developing) execution rules and guidelines for timber construction.
It is a prerequisite for the established design procedures that certain execution rules are followed; most commonly these may be related to assembly tolerances, moisture control on site for wood products and assembly plan for construction safety with building elements. This session covers the wide variety of methods for the execution of timber buildings worldwide. Both methods of execution and standards for the execution rules of timber buildings are dealt with.
