Speed of Timberframe Construction

pic-3One of the main benefits of Timber Frame Construction is it’s speed of construction relative to conventional brick and mortar methods. The wall panels, floor joists and roof trusses that make up the timber frame structure are pre-fabricated in the Ramstown factory and once delivered to the site the entire timber structure can be erected, roofed with breather membrane and tiling battens in a matter of days.

This allows internal and external trades’ full access to proceed with their work regardless of weather conditions.
