On a traditional build project, team sizes are extremely limited and a linear style workflow is employed, meaning a small team team generally works on one stage of the build at a time. Timber frame benefits from a larger team working in a non-linear approach, meaning your project is complete faster. And, once the build is complete, you won't need to worry about the drying times associated with traditional block construction, greatly improving project speed while maintaining a high level of quality.

Timber frame construction methods can work out significantly cheaper than traditional processes thanks to a reduced overall build time and the reduction of headaches as the frames are built off site in a controlled environment. And, thanks to our own internal design team and the flexible nature of timber frame, we are able to create a project according to your specific budget.

Timber carries far superior insulation properties when compared to concrete, and also allows for a far more efficient use of insulation. On top of this, timber frame has the lowest CO2 use of any commercially available building material. At FREDS Timberframe we minimise waste thanks to advanced automation, and all left over timber is used by various other industries to ensure there is almost zero waste. Once in the home, the savings don’t stop there with lower energy bills thanks to the thermal values timberframe offers.

We don't only work with commercial developers, and are able to work with homeowners and project managers for one-off projects. Whether it's a brand new home or an extension, FREDS timber frame are able to provide faster and higher quality product & service than traditional build methods.
