Why Timber Frame


Timber frame construction is a method of building which typically provides a structural timber frame as the principal means of support. The structural timber frame is usually manufactured off site and delivered to site in a kit form. Once on site the timber frame panels are erected to form the internal structural wall of the building which is then clad or finished with bricks, stone or what ever materials are planned to suit the surrounding and planning requirements.


Structural Timber Frame construction methods are tried and tested in most parts of the developed world.
