A versatile, high performance and sustainable construction material, there is ever increasing demand for the timber being used in UK construction today to have been grown in the British Isles. Sustainable Construction Timber provides valuable guidance for architects, engineers, quantity surveyors and building contractors on how to source and specify local timber products. For ease of referencing, the publication is organised in three key sections - the reasons why local sourcing of timber is important; a review of the range of UK timber species and products currently obtainable; and guidance on how local sourcing can be achieved in accordance with national and European construction procurement policies.
