Timber Frame KitA timber frame construction kit is a precision engineered structure that is remarkably strong and durable. Tmber Frame is a quality assured, tried and tested building method. It is now becoming the most popular form of house construction in Scotland, that's largely due to it's suitability for a cold climate where homes need to be built fast, be very energy efficient and keep people comfortable throughout the year.

• Engineered to highest level of accuracy and quality• Design flexability• Simplifies on-site construction• Promotes greater efficiency• Greater control to process• Meets and often exceeds building regulations• Strong & Durable - meeting current building standards• Themally efficient• Performs well in terms of fire and flood resistance• Improves construction Health & Safety• Easy to finance through staged payments• Has fewer defects and high customer satisfaction• It is by far the most environmentally friendly way to build• Timber is an organic, non-toxic and naturally renewable building material• Every timber kit can have a 50% shorter construction time than a standard brick and block build• Structure can be weathertight in 5 days• 99% of softwood is sourced from Europe where we are committed to grow more than is used
AIR TIGHTNESS - A DEFINITIONAir Tightness – the resistance of the building envelope to inward or outward air leakage. Excessive air leakage results in increased energy consumption and a draughty, cold building.
Air leakage is driven by differential pressures across the building envelope. The mechanisms that create these differences in pressure are the combined effects of – stack (internal warm air rises), external wind (inducing +ve and –ve pressures on the envelope) and mechanical ventilation systems.
