The Advantages of Timber Frame Construction

Speed of construction

A prefabricated timber frame or a stick build can be built on site much quicker than a traditional brick and block construction where the interior is exposed much longer. A timber frame build allows electricians, plumbers and other trades to start work much earlier.

Thermal performance

Timber frame structures are thermally better than traditional brick and block construction, and at the same time it allows external walls to be much thinner giving internal rooms more square meterage.

Strength

Timber frame structures are both strong and robust.If designed and built correctly they can last as long, if not longer, than a traditional masonry building.History proves this fact.

Sustainability

Timber is a renewable material, as the the idea is that when a tree is felled another is planted to replace it, which means the supply will be sustainable. Subsequently, the increased demand for timber as a building material can encourage the growth of forests to satisfy the demand. This is in comparison to other materials like bricks and concrete which rely on the extraction of finite raw materials.

Cost

The cost of the timber frame build is typically cheaper than traditional brick and block build, not as much for the cost of timber in comparison to block, but for the time saved in construction.
