Testing of the TF2000 six-storey brick-clad prototype building at the BRE in Cardington is now almost complete. Final phases of research work included the assessment of load-sharing capabilities between brickwork and timber frame for applied horizontal loads (wind loading). A great deal of technical knowledge has come from this project and BRE is now working on design guidance to commercialise these efforts. The BDA is a partner in this work for the brick cladding aspects.
