How We Work...
We manufacture prefabricated timber frame buildings at our workshop in Kent. These are then supplied direct to the building site and constructed by our CSCS/CPCS accredited installers.
Manufactured under factory controlled conditions, timber frame components are an engineered product, and the composition is especially accurate. This simplifies the erection process at your location, with the pieces fitting together accurately, just as they were designed to.
Timber Frames: Robust, Light and Easy to Transport
Timber frames are robust, light and thus easy to transport. This makes timber framed buildings especially suitable for isolated sites, where the ground conditions wouldn’t normally permit heavy construction.
Timber Framed Buildings: Quick to Construct
In mild conditions, timber framed buildings are wind and water-proof within 2-3 days and construction can be completed within 8-10 weeks. After this, other tradesmen can carry on with their work no matter what the weather, eliminating delays due to the UK's unpredictable climate.
As standard, timber framed homes are highly insulated and are far more energy-efficient than the existing Building Regulations require. This means that timber frame properties are economic to run, they warm-up quickly and they retain their heat for longer.
Timber Framed Buildings: Strong & Durable
Our Kent-built timber framed buildings are long-lasting, strong and durable, and compare well with all other standard types of modern day construction. They last at least the 60 years+, which is a requirement of insurers, banks and building societies.
Timber Buildings: Easy to Finance
Timber frame construction is recognised by building societies, banks and insurance providers for borrowing purposes. Indeed, most financiers offer you stage payment plans specially created for self-builders.
Sometimes we think timber frames are only for low-rise construction e.g. bungalows. While timber frame is well suited to this, you can use it for virtually any method of house design.
From cosy holiday cottages to multi-storey apartments, timber framed buildings can be clad in any standard finish: tile, timber, render, stone or brick. Timber frames are used to construct attractive and stylish homes all around the world.
We have experience in all sectors of the construction industry: residential buildings, universities and schools, small bespoke developments and large commercial buildings. We will work with you every step of the way to create a cost-effective and eco-friendly building.
