Timber Frame Construction

What is Timber Frame?

As its name implies, timber frame construction is a method of building which relies on a timber frame as a basic means of structural support. Framed buildings are often referred to as ‘lightweight construction’, but don’t be misled – like the skeleton in your body, it’s a precision engineered structure that is remarkably strong and durable. During construction, open panel timber frame is covered internally by plasterboard, filled with high performance insulation. Moisture/vapour barriers are incorporated and the outer leaf of the wall completes the structure. The outer leaf is typically stone, brick, render or timber to suit the local vernacular and planning requirements.

A truly ‘modern method of construction’, todays factory manufactured timber frame:

  1. Is engineered to the highest level of accuracy and quality Significantly simplifies on-site construction
  2. Promotes greater efficiency and supply chain integration
  3. Brings predictability and greater control to the construction process Meets and often exceeds all current building regulations
  4. Performs well in terms of fire and flood resistance Improves construction health and safety
  5. Has fewer defects and high customer satisfaction
  6. Is by far the most environmentally friendly way to build
