Timber Frame

Timber frame is one of the oldest forms of construction used throughout the world as the advantages associated with this superb material are unparalleled. Modern sustainable timber frame construction has evolved somewhat in recent years with the improvement of building regulations and energy efficiency requirements. Advances in both insulation standards and the introduction of airtight membrane and tapes has resulted in a superior quality build method for the modern domestic home. At MBC we champion this quality driven ethos, and take it to the core of our business model with the use of best practice manufacturing policies to deliver super insulated,energy efficient, sustainable timber frame homes.     

With innovation in material technology and the progression of manufacturing techniques, we have customised our sustainable timber frame wall systems to achieve U-Values of 0.18 W/m²K, 0.15 W/m²K and 0.12 W/m²K. Each wall system surpasses current building regulations, and where applicable passive standards*(*Refers to 300mm Passive Wall System). The following table lists the U-Value provided by the varying timber frame wall systems.
