"Housing is the number one political priority and Offsite construction technologies are the forefront of delivery. Now an accepted method of achieving the much needed additional homes, Offsite construction and specifically well-established Structural Timber is the building material of choice for its sustainability credentials and speed of construction. STA is delighted that the TRADA Timber Offsite Book provides the reader clear information that promotes the benefits of structural timber systems and recommend it to anybody considering construction."

Andrew Carpenter, Chief Executive, STA
