Self-Build

Offsite timber frame construction allows homes to be built faster and to a higher sustainability standard compared with traditional construction methods, making them more cost-effective to build and live in.
When you choose to build your home using timber frame you benefit from:
  • Computer-controlled production process guaranteeing the highest quality, accuracy, and energy efficiency of your timber frame home
  • A highly flexible construction system that allows for imaginative architectural design opportunities
  • An efficient build process saving you up to 3 months on other building systems
  • Timber frame offers excellent thermal efficiency, low thermal bridging and excellent air tightness which is why it is becoming an increasingly popular choice in order to meet the requirements of NZEB.
