Discover the Environmental Benefits of Timber Frame Construction

If you're interested in hiring a construction firm for a new build or an upgrade, you may be wondering which material will be most environmentally beneficial. If this is the case, you should know that timber frame construction offers many eco-friendly advantages. To help you gain a deeper understanding of why timber frame construction may be just what you're looking for, we've compiled a range of relevant facts.

If you want a "green" build which is also designed to stand the test of time, timber construction will deliver. At present, this is the most popular structural building process in the world as it allows homeowners or business owners to enjoy relatively fast construction, as well as the advantages of owning planet-friendly buildings which are remarkably well-insulated.

The rationale behind choosing timber frame construction, with a mind to being environmentally-responsible, is really quite simple to understand. It's all about reducing the carbon footprint of a building. Since timber frame buildings contain more wood per cubic metre than masonry construction buildings do, carbon dioxide emissions are much lower. This means that choosing a timber frame building method will save approximately four tonnes of carbon dioxide from being produced. As you probably already know, carbon dioxide emissions contribute to global warming.

In addition, the benefits of selecting timber frame construction will continue long after the building project is completed. One primary advantage, post-construction, is that timber frame structures are more energy-efficient than masonry-style structures. Insulation performs better in a timber frame environment and this offers the building owner access to savings on the cost of power over the long term.

Eco-friendly Properties of Timber Wood

Due to the popularity of timber frame construction, many managed forests are filled with trees which absorb carbon dioxide and then retain it. These trees "pull" harmful carbon dioxide out of the environment!

In addition, timber is natural and it isn't toxic. This organic renewable resource is sustainable, particularly in Europe, where deforestation issues are addressed by the usage of softwood. Softwood trees grow faster than hardwood trees - therefore, timber forests may be replenished at a faster rate.
