Timber Development UK (TDUK) and Structural Timber Association (STA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to help grow and develop the timber construction market. Under the terms of the agreement the two parties have agreed to form a partnership in order to collaborate on technical projects to further the development of timber design and construction as well as on policy related communication matters. Timber Development UK was formed in 2022 from the merger of Timber Trade Federation and TRADA – the two oldest trade bodies in the timber sector. It forms the largest, most comprehensive supply chain body for timber in the UK with over 1200 members. With over 850 members, the Structural Timber Association is the UK’s leading organisation representing the structural timber sector and associated supply chain companies.
