- Faster construction than masonry builds.
- The impact of weather is reduced.
- Construction doesn’t need to stop during rain, frost and snow. Builds can be water tight in days, rather than weeks or months.
- No drying out period.
- Spreads site labour across multiple labour pools.
- Saving in construction costs and operational costs, helping to save money in the long run.
- Reduced overheads.
- Rental income streams start earlier.
- Social housing grant can be drawn down earlier, reducing interest payments on capital to fund developments.
- All supply and erect contracts have a dedicated contracts manager to oversee projects.
- Acoustic performance, timber frame creates better sound insulation between rooms.
- Thermal insulation creating lower heating bills.
- Fire robustness, there is no greater risk of a fire occurring in a timber frame home.
Frames are constructed in a quality-controlled factory setting. Frames are all pre-fabricated meaning:
- Reduced time on site
- Reduced waste
- Site waste has an inherent value
- Timber waste can be mostly recycled
- Reduced defects
- Increased air tightness
- Reduced quantity of site labour
- Value Engineered method of Construction
- The timber industry successfully plants more trees than what it consumes, allowing for forestry growth.
- Completely renewable source.
- Carbon neutral material- lowest CO2 cost of all building materials.
- A host of different products to meet structural and visual requirements.
- Lighter construction for foundations can benefit poor ground conditions, which may limit building materials.
