Advanteges of prefabricated timber frame houses
Short construction periods
The manufacturing and assembly of a prefabricated timber frame house takes about two months until it is possible to start internal finishing works. Compared to masonry houses that require drying time to ensure efficiency, timber frame house construction is very quick, as no “wet” construction technologies are used, such as, plaster or concrete works. Prefabricated houses can be manufactured and assembled at any time of the year. Due to the low weight of the prefabricated timber frame houses, they don’t require as massive foundations as other buildings, which allows significant savings of both time and money.
Each house is design in specialized professional software, where all segments of the building are planned and resolved already during the design stage. This allows to fully determine all critical aspects to ensure maximum durability, insulation and appropriate aesthetic appearance. The house is manufactured at the plant rather than the construction site, which means that the materials and the processes are protected from the environmental impacts (rain, snow, wind). In our manufacturing and construction process, we only use certified and high quality materials from verified suppliers.
Outstanding energy efficiency
Timber frame panels are characterized by excellent heat insulation, despite the relatively thinner walls. Using a 25cm insulation layer, the walls correspond to 90cm masonry walls, thereby greatly reducing the heating requirements of a timber frame house.
Unlimited architectural and construction solutions
Prefabricated timber frame houses offer a lot of opportunities and freedom of architectural solutions to fit every desire, taste and means. Timber frame houses can be contemporary, with curved shapes, large rooms, high and large glass facades, as well as traditional, massive, finished with cement fiber boards, bricks or decorative plaster or any other modern and current finishing materials. Different external finishing materials can result in completely different visual solutions, even if the design of the house is the same. The communications are built into the walls/ divisions (heating, electricity, water supply, ventilation).
Comparing the total construction costs of prefabricated timber frame houses to traditionally built buildings with similar energy efficiency, the timber panel houses are very competitive due to a simplified and less expensive foundation solution, which is also important for shorter construction period and, thus, the construction costs.
In manufacturing timber frame houses, we use only natural materials that are not harmful to the environment and people. Timber panel houses are warm, cozy and organic. The prefabricated timber frame technology combines high-quality natural materials with modern scientific achievements in construction. Such construction technology has achieved smart balance between thermal insulation and air permeability, leaving a positive impact on the health of the occupants of the house.
