The Benefits of Timber Frame
- Quick turnaround – Timber frame buildings can be completed in a much quicker timescale than with traditional build methods
- Engineered accuracy – As a precision product made in a controlled factory environment, timber frames offer levels of accuracy that cannot be achieved with traditional on-site construction
- Thermal efficiency – Timber frames have a thermal efficiency (low U-value) far exceeding that achieved by the use of traditional building materials, making your building warmer and cheaper to heat
- Reduced costs – Because timber frames are manufactured off site and erected quickly, site costs are much reduced
- Site efficiency and safety – With the structure made in a safe factory environment, the amount of risky on-site work is reduced, making the build simpler and safer
- Energy efficiency – Little energy is consumed in the manufacture of a timber frame building
- Environmentally friendly – Raw materials are drawn from renewable resources and timber is a natural, non-toxic and fully biodegradable material
Understanding Timber Frame – Fast, Thermally Efficient Builds
Timber frame construction has been used throughout the UK and entire Northern Hemisphere for over a century, proving to be both reliable and excellent value for money. As building regulations are continually revised to improve the thermal efficiency of buildings, timber frame construction is better suited because it is more easily adaptable to modern construction requirements than traditional brick and block construction. Insulation can be integrated within the timber frame panel. Higher sound insulation is also achieved when you build with timber frame due to the structural break which is formed between buildings. It’s the perfect choice when a high quality build with a fast erection time is required.
