The advantages of timber frame housing:
Price is a major factor in any property development project. More and more developers are choosing to build with timber frames for the simple reason that this building method had a very positive impact on ROI compared to other construction techniques. Aside from the benefits of superior structural integrity, we choose our timber to match the financial needs of our customers.

Timber Frame is a sustainable building method
With increasing concerns over CO2 emissions, it is the responsibility of all construction companies to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Timber frame construction has the lowest CO2 cost of any commercial building method and is therefore the green option.
Building with timber frame can be up to 50% faster
Typically, timber frame construction can save as much as 50% of build programme time. This allows the building to be made watertight in a fraction of the time normally associated with a traditional build. This accelerated process allows the first and second fixings to be made inside whilst the exterior skin of brick or cladding is applied.
From residential to commercial – timber frame is versatile
Timber frame buildings are well known in the construction field. They cover a wide range of applications, from single storey domestic housing to elaborate multi room residential properties. Due to the speed of erection and versatility, timber frame is used for a wide range of building types. Click on the following links to see examples of Merronbrook’s building projects:

Merronbrook Timber Frame packages
All of our packages incorporate Wolf Systems’ easi-joist floor joist system. Easi-joist is an open metal web system that allows easy access for pipes and cables around the floor joists. This speeds up the first fix stage and makes the provision of ducting for new heat loss recovery systems much easier.
We mostly use weather and boil proof (WBP) plywood for intermediate flooring. With its known high levels of resistance to heat and moisture, WBP plywood provides greater weatherproofing and cleaning advantages.
We prefabricate your timber frames to CAD specification. The frames are then marked with a unique code and delivered to site. We can deliver the frames in part, or complete, to accommodate your build schedule.
Merronbrook’s experienced and fully qualified teams provide a full erection service for timber frame houses and commercial structures.
Customers range from private self-builders to main contractors. Regardless of the customer, Merronbrook can offer advice and assistance to help you make the right choice for your specific timber frame construction needs.
