Timber Frame Engineering Council

The Timber Frame Engineering Council (TFEC) formed in 2005 at a Guild conference in recognition of the considerable number of structural engineers among the Guild membership and in response to a felt need for systematic research, discussion, and codification of timber frame joinery and structural practices.  Our members are dedicated to advancing the technology of timber frame engineering.


TFEC objectives include:

  • Provide an open forum for the discussion of engineering topics.
  • Promote appropriate research to advance timber frame and SIP technology.
  • Produce technical publications and articles on various topics.
  • Advocate amendments to building codes and technical standards.
  • Conduct engineering sessions in conjunction with TFG Conferences.

Membership is open to any member of the Timber Framers Guild with an interest in timber frame engineering. To join click HERE.
