Timber-Frame

Nowadays all new buildings have to conform to new thermal efficiency standards. But, because wood is such a good natural insulator, enhancing the efficiency standards of the insulation materials, timber frame buildings have been meeting or exceeding these standards for years. They are also more comfortable to live in; thanks to the excellent insulation of the structural shell, the whole home heats up more quickly, without any cold areas. Better insulation, hand-in-hand with detailed draught-proofing, means smaller boiler, lower heating bills and a cosier, more comfortable home. Our structural framework uses stress graded softwood timber from sustainably managed forests in Scandinavia. The replanting programme in these forests ensures that there are 3 trees planted for every 2 trees cut down, leaving a net growth in the volume of trees every year, with no cost to the environment! Timber is recognised as the only renewable construction material with the softwoods used in fabrication coming from environmentally sustainable forests. The embodied energy in timber is low, even when taking into account transport and treatment requirements and the processing of timber to the finished state uses over 25% less energy than that required for other construction materials Added to this, timber itself has thermal properties and the design of the structural panels means that spaces between studs can be packed with of high levels of insulation material, giving the whole structure a low "U" value.
