BWF joins the Sustainable Traditional Building Alliance

The British Woodworking Federation (BWF) has joined the Sustainable Traditional Buildings Alliance (STBA).

The collaboration between the two not-for-profit organisations aims to establish a forum for sustaining and improving traditional buildings in the UK. 

Formed in late 2011, the Alliance draws its support from three main sectors – Heritage, Industry and Sustainability. ‘Heritage’ in this context does not confine itself to historic and protected buildings, but refers more broadly to any pre-1919 traditionally-constructed building. 

The STBA promotes and delivers a more sustainable traditional built environment in the UK through high-quality research, education, training and policy. It also produces short and usable guidance (e.g.Planning Responsible Retrofit of Traditional Buildings) based upon best current research and practice.

"We will be working with the SBTA to provide better access to information on windows and we very much hope to develop joint training for conservation officers and to highlight the issues", BWF commented.
