Together with the much less expensive transport options that started to appear around the end of the 19th century, this led to new materials becoming available that had hitherto been inconceivable.

The wood for timber buildings must be dry, dimensionally accurate and straight. Dried and finger-jointed solid structural timber or Duo®, Duplex or Trio® beams (two or three laminations glued together) are therefore used instead. Compound sections with laminations finger-jointed separately are also suitable for suspended floor systems. Fig. a54 shows further types. Glued laminated timber The laminations for the production of glued laminated timber (glulam) members are covered in Switzerland by SIA 265 "Timber structures" and SIA 265/1 "Timber structures - Supplementary specifications", which are based on EN 1194 "Timber structures Glued laminated timber - Strength classes and determination of characteristic values".

The spacing of the studs on plan depends on the arrangement of doors and windows. The positions of larger (or pairs of) studs for carrying heavier loads from the roof or suspended floors must also be determined. The studs direct the forces vertically downwards. At the same time, the structure can be anchored to the foundations via the studs with fasteners capable of resisting tension. The normal spacing of studs in a standard wall lies between 800 and 1200 mm. In structural terms, the studs are also subjected to buckling and bending (wind loads).
