About timber frame

Timber frame is a low carbon, high performance and cost effective system that provides a cohesive superstructure – walls, floors and roof – for your building.

Walls are factory produced as panels, complete with waterproof coverings and insulation. Engineered floor joists and roof components are manufactured.

It provides a simple solution: timber frame is a proven system used for many years, there’s much less risk of delay due to weather and you only have one point of responsibility.
It provides a quality solution: panels and cassettes are factory produced to tight tolerances in ideal working conditions, ready for easy and fast assembly on site.

It provides a flexible solution: timber frames can work for all design styles and achieve all performance levels.

With the majority of the work done off site, it provides a safe solution.

Green and sustainable

We are proud that Sylva timber frame systems are both Green and Sustainable.

Green because they deliver well insulated energy efficient homes, which help to reduce running costs and carbon emissions from fuel sources. In addition, our offsite manufacturing approach minimises waste, shortens build time and reduces the impact of site activities.

Sustainable because we use timber and wood products from managed forest sources.
Timber is the only renewable mainstream construction material, absorbing and storing carbon dioxide as it grows. By using timber from sustainable sources we are both locking away carbon for the life of the building and supporting forest replanting to continue the cycle.

So, you benefit from low energy consumption and hence running costs, while also minimising carbon emissions in use and storing away carbon for life!
