We hope this will be one of the most rewarding (in every sense of the word) projects you undertake in your lifetime. Target Timber Systems is one of the most respected Timber Frame Manufacturers in the country. We have historically designed, manufactured and erected Timber Frame structures for the construction industry and are now offering this wealth of experience to the self-builder. All our projects come with fully dimensioned working drawing and calculations for Building Regulation approval and our HB353b certificate for NHBC or Zurich certification.
WE BUILD BUILDINGS OFF-SITE
Quality and Reliability
Timber Frame construction offers many advantages over other forms of construction in terms of speed, cost and quality, timber frame buildings are engineered and manufactured under factory controlled conditions eliminating the vagaries and delays which have historically frustrated new build. Off-site fabrication can provide further advantages in reducing time on site, waste, defects, noise and dust pollution and tackles the on-site skill shortage. By factory fixing insulation and windows buildings can be secured and weather tight in a matter of days enabling following trades to commence.
TIMBER FRAME IS AT THE HEART OF SUSTAINABLE BUILDING
Wood is the only natural renewable building material
Wood is an exceptional construction material. It is highly versatile, has exceptional thermal properties and is strong and renewable.
At a time when sustainable development is at the forefront of construction and key issues such as climate change dominate our thinking timber frame is at the cutting edge. Wood is an outstanding renewable material that offers a range of environmental benefits from low embodied carbon to reduced heating costs.
TIMBER IS OUR TRADITIONAL BUILDING MATERIAL
The oldest UK residential properties are Timber Frame
History books show that the traditional construction methods used from generation to generation made use of home-grown timber to provide the structural frame for homes.
Today you hear “traditional construction” used to mean masonry, which is not correct – Timber Frame was the first form of prefabrication, and it continues to evolve in response to changing building regulations and changing design requirements so should reclaim its title as the traditional form of construction in the UK.
