The Commercial Side to Timber Framing

Timber frame buildings offer a host of benefits that empower commercial construction in durability, design flexibility, and environmental friendliness. In addition to these practical benefits, a timber frame is an eye-catching conversation piece that will play a memorable part of your business in the years to come.

Typical commercial building materials, such as concrete and steel, must be hidden behind more appealing drywall and finishes, however commercial projects can benefit using timber framed construction by providing an attractive interior and exterior through the warmth and attractiveness of exposed timber.

Strong, Elegant and Eco Friendly

Timber frame structures, built with strong mortise and tenon joints, are capable of withstanding extreme amounts of pressure and have innate fire resistance. These basic design qualities can help you to achieve a commercial structure of intense strength and durability. If you are looking for a large or very unique structure, the frame can be reinforced with steel in a number of ways to further enhance reliability. In this way, you can even achieve a structurally sound multi-story building using a wood frame.

Steel connectors that bolster the frame can be customized to meet your design needs. To achieve a more traditional look, steel reinforcements can be hidden inside the timber joints. To achieve additional strength with a unique aesthetic appearance, the steel connectors can be left visible. Steel connectors you might see include metal straps, tension rods, and gusset plates, which can contribute to strength and create an impressive appearance.In terms of sustainability, responsible forestry has made wood a renewable resource, unlike steel and concrete building materials. If you are striving to create a green structure, a timber frame can deliver both sustainable materials and energy efficiency. Energy efficiency is also possible to achieve with a timber frame, allowing you to reduce the operating costs for the structure through a strong design.
