July 11, 2012 - PRLog -- Gettysburg, PA USA [July 11, 2012] – The Timber Frame Business Council (TFBC) was established in October 1995 as a non-profit association dedicated to the timber frame industry. According to the 2012 Chairman of the Board of Directors, Jennifer Young of New Energy Works Timber Framing, a new branding initiative is well underway for this North American trade association.  The group is rebranding its website to include a new logo, tagline, mission, vision and name to use for its outreach efforts. The Council will keep its name but change its moniker to “TimberFrame.org” with associated logo, tagline, mission and vision.

According to Ms. Young, “the vision for TFBC and TimberFrame.org is a world where buildings are created sustainably and honored as legacies, enriching lives, providing security, comfort and harmony.”  She stated that the timber framing group would like to make their website and outreach materials more consumer friendly as the group welcomes all to “discover the benefits” of timber framing.  

Eric Morley, Carolina Timberworks, and Vice-Chairman of the Council’s Board of Directors said, “the competition for timber framers is not other timber framers, but instead the competition is other building methods. We employ modern construction methods that go a long way to fulfill the new mission of TimberFrame.org. As a group, we want to ensure the building public knows about timber framing and its benefits because timber-framed structures offer a variety of aesthetic and structural benefits, including allowance for open plan designs and complete enclosures allowing for effective insulation for energy efficiency.”

Bruce Bode, Heavy Timber Truss & Frame, LLC (and immediate Past Chairman of the Board) stated “The methods of fastening the frame members also differ from conventional stick built structures. In conventional framing, the members are joined using nails or other mechanical fasteners, whereas timber framing uses the traditional mortise and tenon or more complex joints that are usually fastened using only wooden pegs.”

Pam Hinton, Executive Director of the TFBC, said “We are excited to employ our new mission, to ‘expand demand for timber framing’ and to carry out the commitment to educate those engaged in building about the benefits of timber framing. To that end, the group has a searchable directory of qualified timber frame companies and other associated professionals, as well as information about the [timber framing] process on our website www.timberframe.org.” The group also offers continuing education programs to architects throughout the USA and Canada.
