The Project

Kingspan Timber Solutions were chosen to provide the factory-insulated timber-frame kits for this development of 14 houses on a tight urban site. As a result of the site constraints, the pre-fabricated nature of timber-frame construction offered an efficient build that helped maximise the internal space. Making it a good solution for this particular project.

The Design

Kingspan Timber Solutions worked closely with the architects to achieve the desired thermal efficiency of the building fabric which had been specified in their designs. Kingspan Timber Solutions also assisted with the incorporation of the Lifetime Homes requirements, helping to achieve the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 requirements that the architects specified. The build onsite went very smoothly due to the level of interaction and coordination between the architects and the Kingspan Timber Solutions design team. The offsite nature of timber-frame construction meant the tight urban site was more easily navigable, as the timber-frame panels arrived pre-insulated and ready to be assembled. It also facilitated rapid build times, allowing for a predictable build schedule and meaning noise and disruption to the surrounding properties were kept to a minimum. The developer's positive experience on this project has made timber frame their primary construction method.
