Why Timber Frame?

Versatility on Design

  • Huge variety of designs can be accommodated, from traditional to ultra-contemporary
  • Timber frame lends itself well to spacious open plan design.
  • Bespoke U-values can be specified to suit your own usage.
  • Light-weight structures for foundations, which can benefit poor ground conditions

Speed of Construction

  • Speedy off-site manufacturing, within a controlled factory environment
  • Reduced risk of delay on site, due to bad weather and the reliance on individuals associated with on-site construction methods.
  • The long drying out period associated with ‘wet’ construction is reduced considerably.
  • From panels, floor joists and roof trusses arriving on site, the structure can be erected in a matter of days and ready for external finishes.
  • The accelerated process allows the first and second fixings to be made inside, whilst the exterior skin of brick or cladding is applied.

Reduced Overall Build Costs

  • Using timber frame for your construction, makes easier and and more accurate project budgeting.
  • Accurate timescales for manufacture and delivery, enables follow on trades to be booked in, to follow in close succession
  • Savings in construction costs and operational costs, helping to save money in the long run.

Thermally Efficient & Environmentally Friendly 

  • Thermal insulation and membranes, can bring U-values down to an all time low, resulting in reduced heating costs.
  • Bentley Timber Frames are also PEFC certified (www.pefc.org) meaning timber frame is by far the most eco-friendly construction method.
  • Timber frame construction has the lowest CO2 cost of any commercial building method and is therefore the green option.
