CPD for Architects & Designers

Building with Wood CPD

This CPD feature has been produced by Wood Campus in co-operation with the Timber Trade Federation (TTF) and the Structural Timber Association (STA), and accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). It covers the important issues you need to be familiar with if you are designing and building with timber, including sustainability, timber frame, Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), other engineered materials, sheet materials, roofing, joists and flooring.


This online CPD course introduces you to the UK edition of the Swedish Wood CLT Handbook. The Handbook has been updated and revised for the UK market in collaboration with Arup, Swedish suppliers of cross-laminated timber, and the industry body Swedish Wood.

Each section of this CPD begins with a short video overview of the Handbook chapter, followed by a link to the full document. In some sections we have also included a case study for you to review.
