The ABC…. of timber frames
Manufacture in factory-controlled conditions means a high degree of accuracy and quality can be achieved for the timber frame, ensuring components fit together precisely as specified in the technical drawings. This simplifies the on-site erection process, reducing storage, helping with time, labour and site health and safety requirements.
Each timber frame kit is created following detailed technical drawings which means it meets the customer’s requirements exactly, whether it is a one-off grand design, part of a large development, a commercial property or a block of flats. Timber frames offer great flexibly and quality for the public and private sector alike to fit all budgets. The components are relatively lightweight and easy to transport meaning they are particularly suitable for remote sites and where ground conditions prevent heavier form of construction.
Shorter and more predictable build timetables mean keeping tighter controls on costs. Timber frame homes can provide excellent thermal efficiency giving a life time of savings in energy costs
A timber frame house is robust and sturdy, giving security and peace of mind. It can be clad in a variety of finishes from timber cladding to brick, stone or tile.
ECOLOGICAL AND ENERGY EFFICIENT
The energy efficiency of timber frame makes it the environmentally friendly way to build and the system relies on renewable softwoods from well managed forests and uses only CFC free insulation. Timber is an organic, non-toxic and naturally renewable building material.
The component for a timber kits can be manufactured in the factory in a few days and if weather permits, can be wind and watertight on site within a week and well on the way to completion in a few months.
