The Institute for Timber Construction (ITC-SA) is the engineered timber structure industry’s professional body in South Africa, striving to create and maintain the highest standards in the sector. With the ITC-SA, the trade and consumer can enjoy the protection that comes with a safely erected and inspected timber roof, home or deck. The ITC-SA is a SAQA accredited professional body and a recognized Voluntary Association in terms of the Engineering Profession Act, 2000 (Act 46 of 2000).
The Institute was established more than 40 years ago to regulate the engineered timber roof structure industry and to provide design, manufacturing, erection, inspection and certification for compliance with inter alia SANS 10400 and SANS 10082, where engineering rational designs are applicable. The Institute for Timber Frame Builders (ITFB) was incorporated into the ITC-SA in 2014 to ensure a better and more uniform representation of the timber engineered practitioners in the built environment.
The ITC-SA has a well-established national infrastructure. Its head office is situated in Isando, Gauteng with branch structures in Gauteng, Polokwane, Mpumalanga, North West, Free State, Southern/Eastern Cape, Western Cape, Northern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal.
The individuals in the employ of the ITC-SA come with a wealth of experience and qualifications in the built environment. These skills and accolades create and bolster the reputational environment that drives the objectives of the ITC-SA, making it the go-to organisation for both the trade and consumer to source quality timber construction products and services and to be consulted on if any service related problems arise.
The role of the ITC-SA is to ensure consumer protection in the use of timber engineered products in contracts entered into with the ITC-SA membership and to regulate the professional conduct of its members.
