UK: after the merger of TRADA and TTF, creation of a new online documentation center

As previously reported, the UK's two leading timber trade associations, Timber Trade Federation and TRADA, have recently merged to form Timber Development UK (TDUK).

The new federation is now the largest industry federation in the UK, headed by David Hopkins.

Its actions are organized around three missions: 

  • Connect the supply chain, from upstream to downstream
  • Lead best practice, by creating a major online wood specification information center and extensive guidance to members
  • Accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future by supporting the sector towards sustainability

TDUK has put together a wealth of information on its website, including market data, case studies, advice on sustainable construction methods, information on timber sustainability, and news.
