Speed of build

Timber frame systems are commonly identified as the solution for fast moving projects where a guaranteed end date is essential. Our systems are also ideal for those sites, particularly in the housing sector, that have a slower pace of build where construction is based upon sales success and management of cash is essential. Your timber frame installation cost will be carefully calculated. The following summarises the benefits that we can bring your site regardless of the pace of build.

Accelerated Build

We can work with you on your accelerated build to help reduce your costs and provide a quicker return on your capital outlay. Our teams will assess your programme needs, discuss with you and propose our resource and logistical solution. Through discussion and review we can agree the project approach to deliver the following headline benefits:

  • Reduced cost of material wastage – environmental and landfill costs
  • Cost certainty through our fixed price approach
  • Early design engagement to offer shorter lead times
  • Improved prelim costs and development financing costs
  • Reduced site management and supervision
  • Fewer weather delays and greater certainty of handover

Measured build

Where your project needs to be constructed at a more measured pace, perhaps due to a slower sale rate, we can provide you with a tailored solution to ensure that you are able to take advantage of the shorter build time required to build a timber frame structure by comparison with masonry. Through analysis with our construction specialists we can deliver the following key advantages:

  • Shorter time from committed sale to completion
  • Fewer programme delays as timber frame installation is not weather dependant
  • Reduced impact of labour or material shortages as brickwork is removed from the critical path
  • Significantly improved cash flow and reduced interest charges as a result
  • Cost certainty through our fixed price approach
  • Early design engagement to offer shorter lead times

Our team of experts are ready to discuss either of the above options with you and we would be delighted to arrange a visit to a live site so that you can see us in action.
