As the name implies, timber frame is a method of construction which uses a timber frame as the structural support instead of internal block work. The timber frame is filled with high performance insulation then covered internally by plasterboard and externally with vapour/moisture proof membranes. Clad with granite, brickwork or rendered block, the finished article is indistinguishable from traditional masonry construction, with doors, windows and roofs being the same for both.
There is, however, a major difference where time and costs are concerned. Precision engineering of the timber frames in our manufacturing division ensure the highest level of accuracy and quality and simplifies construction on site. Because the timber frame is a dry form of construction, it requires no drying-out period and subcontractors can get on site and underway more quickly.
