Ted Stubbersfield - Timber Design Assistant
To design of weather exposed timber structure such as decks, boardwalks and bridges that age gracefully, requires a depth of knowledge and breadth of experience that only a few timber design professionals possess.
The extra skills needed go beyond an appreciation of the science involved. They are a thorough understanding of the art of timber detailing, of material supply and, of construction techniques.
Understandably only few posses these skills as they are seldom taught and take a lifetime to acquire.
Weather exposed timber
Now that I am no longer working for OSA I am free to offer a range of consultancy services in this field by providing design assistance and timber grading.
In our area of expertise, often it is the art that proves more important than the science. Weather exposed structures normally do not fail because of incorrect member size calculations, but because a myriad of small points of detail are not taken care of.
Timber Design Assistant
As a timber grader I can assist with grading for confirmation to a nominated grade but, more importantly, I can assess whether timber is graded to an appropriate grade. Often these are not the same thing.
