Timber frame construction offers superb energy efficiency, together with a speedier build time and there is no better way to meet sustainability targets than by using the most natural construction material known to man. That is why it is increasingly being selected as the best building method and approach to delivering a project.

Our manufacturing centre tour is designed to provide a better understanding of why precision-engineered timber frame is at the heart of the fabric first ethos. Timber frame offers a reduction in raw material waste during manufacture, better flexibility in design and improves the whole-life energy efficiency of residential and commercial developments.

The tour will highlight benefits of the design and build process, offsite manufacturing and onsite efficiency, including the environmental credentials, as follows:

•  Presentation on Offsite manufacture and the benefits this achieves
•  Fire safety during construction presentation
•  CAD presentation for timber frame design and material scheduling
•  Production planning, information outputs and manufacturing works order process
•  Manufacturing facility layout planning and principles
•  Procurement through supply chain partners
•  Incoming raw materials process
•  Material stacking and storage
•  Cross-cutting pre-assembly and setting-out assembly, including component labelling
•  Work in progress and finished goods storage
•  Manufacturing quality checks
•  Quality Management Systems
•  Waste and recycling
•  Loading /shipping product
•  Operative training and competency
