I.S. 440 - A NEW STANDARD IN SUSTAINABLE CONSTRUCT
In a year of few highlights for the Irish construction industry, the publication of I.S. 440 –‘Timber Frame Dwellings’ by the NSAI (National Standards Authority of Ireland), in association with the ITFMA and the Dept of the Environment, was hailed as a landmark event. Developed in response to the massive growth in popularity of timber frame housing in Ireland since the 1990s, the publication of the IS440 standard means that not only local authorities but anyone planning to build a timber frame dwelling now has an exacting Irish standard that they can refer to for setting tender packages and a benchmark to measure the quality of the tenders they receive.
