Timber models are top draw on BM TRADA stand

BM TRADA will be showcasing its timber expertise to the masses at this year’s Ecobuild with an interactive stand featuring two timber models to showcase its timber credentials.

Visitors to the international testing, inspection, certification and compliance body will be able to find out information on its wide range of services. With everything from timber technology to timber frame, investigations to condition and structural surveys, there’ll be plenty of opportunity to gain the knowledge of BM TRADA’s wide-ranging service provision.

From its stand at S6052, BM TRADA’s technical experts will all be on hand to answer any technical questions from visitors in what promises to be a busy three days for the team.

BM TRADA experts will showcase the company’s timber testing capabilities with a model that will test the strength and show the difference in durability between various pieces of timber. Delegates will also be able to have a go using the machine: it will be a very practical and informative session!

They’ll also be able to discover the intricacies of a timber-frame construction with another model, this one a scaled down version of a timber-framed house, complete with decked area, lighting and insulation!

Next to the BM TRADA will be the ‘University’ stand, where TRADA University Engagement Programme manager Elizabeth Turner will be answering questions about the programme, the National Student Design Competition – Airspeed – as well as displaying models from the runners up in this year’s Dan Kemp Memorial Competition.
