The advantages of timber frame housing:

It’s cost-effective

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:

Over an 18-month period, Merronbrook delivered and constructed timber frames
for all 56 homes covering a mix of semi-detached and staggered terraced houses.

The proposed timber frame construction development, for this project, was for
10 houses to be built in the centre of the bustling town.

Built to a very high specification, Merronbrook undertook the timber frame
construction of the 18 homes on site.

With easy access to the site and a detailed programme, Merronbrook
completed the timber frame construction within two weeks. This allowed the roofing
contractors to commence work on tiling, ensuring the site could be made
watertight in the shortest possible time.

This project covered various phases ranging over a 25 week period and
included assistance from Merronbrook’s experienced timber frame construction team.

The private, off-road development was ready for our client’s roofing
contractors in under twelve days from Merronbrook’s first delivery of
the timber frame.This allowed the site to be watertight in the
fastest possible time.

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.
