This report records the form of construction of timber frame dwellings built in the UK, primarily in the public sector, between 1920 and 1965. It identifies locations in the UK where deterioration has occurred, and highlights the areas in dwellings to which surveyors should pay particular attention when carrying out an inspection. The report is based on the results of BRE investigations of over 50 dwellings built during this period, covering 14 different systems.
The systems discussed are: Aberdeen Corporation, Lanark Country Council, London County Council (LCC), LCC Special Dwellings, Newcastle Corporation, Solid Cedar, Scottish Special Housing Association (SSHA), Calder, Canadian Timber, Scottwood, Simms Sons & Cooke/SWPA, Spooner, Spooner/Caspon, Swedish Timber, Weir Timber.
