Expert Timber Frame Construction

There are many reasons behind why the housing sector is increasingly choosing timber frame homes, as well as choosing Pinewood Structures for their timber frame construction.

Using our Timber Frame products significantly reduces the duration of a build. On average, a timber frame building can be built 8 weeks faster when compared to traditional building methods. Timber frames also bring down overall build costs by approximately 2.8%, with programme savings of up to 19.5%. Additionally, timber material acts as a carbon sink, trapping carbon when it is harvested which makes it one of the most sustainable materials that can be used for construction.
