Our knowledge base

We have provided solutions to housing developers in the public sector housing construction market for many years. We have used our timber frame house building expertise to good effect when helping to create desirable spaces for new and existing communities. Our building systems have been developed with flexibility and choice in mind to enable public sector home builders to buy, dependent upon their own key drivers whether cost, speed of build, building performance or a combination of all. We can provide 1) a full supply and install service; 2) an assisted supply only service; or 3) be the supplier of the systems for you to install.

Offsite manufacturing

The future

With the increasing concerns about availability of site labour, rising worries about fuel poverty and the push towards a net zero carbon industry, energy-efficient offsite manufacturing has never had a bigger part to play in the affordable house building industry. We’re here to help you successfully manage the challenges and demands facing your organisation.

Building Regulations require 45dB noise reduction between plots and our units out-performed the requirement at 63-69dB. (50% above minimum standards) These tests give us confidence in the Donaldson (previously Stewart Milne) timber frame system.
