Timber Frames Accreditation

Timber frame construction has been a long-established way of building homes, not only in the UK but across the world and forms part of today’s Modern Methods of Construction (MMC). MMC timber frame construction is advocated by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), as an environmentally and economically proven solution*.

With timber frames being produced off site and delivered in a prefabricated form, construction times to make a building ‘wind & watertight’ can save as much as 30% over that of traditional construction.


A timber framed home will provide a significantly lower carbon footprint in its manufacture, reduce energy consumption throughout its lifetime and lock-away atmospheric CO2 for generations.


Timber frame buildings cover a wide range of applications from single storey, domestic housing to multiple occupancy residential properties and care homes.


A recent independent report commissioned by Rider Levett Bucknall showed using timber frames and a more carefully planned packages for follow-on sub-contractors, was the most cost-effective structural solution, offering an overall cost saving of 2.8% and a programme saving of 19.5%.
