Building in Timber Frame

Main Image


Timber framed buildings are fast to erect – private homes can be built in as little as three weeks - cost less to construct, and have excellent energy credentials. According to the Structural Timber Association (STA), building in timber frame can reduce a building’s energy consumption by up to a third and has the lowest level of embodied carbon of any commercially available material. The benefits are many:

  • Off site construction for higher quality and lower cost
  • Delivers speed of build
  • Less waste on site
  • Streamlined project management
  • Lower health and safety risks
  • Shorter build programmers
  • Fabric first solution with no costly bolt ons

Timber frames also cope excellently with complex building designs. From single to six storey buildings, of any shape and size, timber frames have the added advantage of being able to offer both private and commercial developers a BIM-ready, flexible building material.
