Factory Fabricated Timber Frame Homes
Factory fabrication is undertaken in ideal conditions where the factory temperature, relative humidity and storage are all controlled, combined with the latest computer aided machinery and laser guidance, the results are efficient and high quality.
Our manufacturing processes in Sweden are some of the most advanced found anywhere in the world, and where possible, external finishing and internal finishing boards are factory applied leaving little finishing to be completed on site.
All of our timber frame systems are ‘low energy’ and all are fabricated to the same exacting standards, however, we do provide a range of performance levels which equate to differing thickness of walling panel and insulation configurations.
We also provide ‘Hybrid Systems’ which utilise the best of the Timber Frame panelling system with SIP’s (Structurally Insulated Panels) for roofs and other building elements that benefit from this method of construction. – We ‘mix and match’ elements to help you achieve your ideal home, if you think you want something very specific, then click here for more details.
The following ‘Timber Frame Wall Panel Details’ show examples of the build up of the walling and the relative U Values for each – remember that the efficiency of the finished building is not just the combination of each component’s U Value, airtightness is a key requirement to being energy efficient and this is a factor of good design, high quality manufacturing and a skilled team erecting the building.
Broad Categories of our Factory Fabricated Wall Panels
- Low Energy & Passive Panel Systems
- Micro Energy Generation Systems (Energy Plus)
- Hybrid Systems (Future Materials) providing ‘Climate Smart Living’
BEE-Spoke Site Fabricated Timber Frame Homes
Whilst factory fabrication provides an ideal environment for the manufacture and assembly of our advanced panelling systems, not all sites can accommodate the delivery, unloading and crane erection that it requires.
As there are many building plots which have tight access, poor unloading and storage areas or a design which simply does not fit with the standard offerings, we provide a BEE – Spoke site fabricated solution which will provide exactly the same energy performance and air tightness, but can be designed and built to suit the exact requirements for the plot and the building conditions that you have.
Often there is concern about the timescale for the delivery and construction of the site fabricated option, as the speed of manufacture obtained by the factory is lost – however, as we undertake all of the design, engineering, drawing and site fabrication drawings ‘in-house’ we can usually start and complete the design, supply and erection is the same or less time than from order to erection from our factory.
If you have concerns about the UK weather and think your building fabric will be compromised by it during its build, let us assure you that your building will be made weathertight with all windows, doors and temporary roof coverings applied and the moisture content inside will be monitored until the fitting of the insulation and other internal finishes can be fitted.
BEE-Spoke Advanced Panelling Systems
Not all projects which utilise our BEE-Spoke service are the result of sites with restricted access, many want to be able to have something built to exacting standards, whether it’s a given U Value or a specific thickness or a desire to use ‘State of the Art’ materials which are not being used in full scale production, we work with you to optimise your home.
