Ty Unnos Affordable Housing from homegrown timber
Ty Unnos Affordable Housing from Homegrown timber Ty Unnos is a building system that utilises locally available timber species and grades to provide a range of affordable housing and other buildings using locally available resources. The building system is unique in utilising the lower grade timber generally produced by Welsh and UK forestry. SDF money will be used by Coed Cymru to complete the certification process for the Ty Unnos affordable housing system. To obtain certification a specified number of each type of component will be made to existing designs and each of these will undergo testing by the Timber Research and Development Association (TRADA) to an already defined procedure. Once testing has been achieved the system will be certified to the European Technical Assessment Guideline (ETAG), which will allow the system and/or components of the system to be manufactured by local companies without the need for each individual company to be separately certified. In this way the project will achieve a wider impact and through specifying the use of Welsh timber in the certification will ensure a tie in to the local resource.This will support sustainable woodland management, biodiversity and increase the perceived value of woodlands in the local community.
