The Foundations

We start with the installation of ground screws. Quickly installed and recyclable, ground screws have many benefits over concrete. Your foundations will be in within a day. There’s no digging, reinforcing, concrete pouring, and no waiting. Ground screws go in fast – in any weather. 

 

The Base

It’s day 2 – and with the ground screws in place, we’re ready to start building. Just compare that with concrete foundations which can take 3-4 weeks! The environmentally friendly and fully insulated prefabricated timber base will be delivered and installed in sections. It’s very efficient, there’s no concrete, and no mess. 

Now it’s time for the walls. We’ll be using structural insulated panels (SIPS) – a high-performance building system made for residential and light commercial construction. SIPs are known to be about 50% more energy-efficient than traditional timber framing. Once installed, they deliver unrivalled insulation and airtightness which reduces energy costs over the building’s lifetime. 

Being highly energy-efficient SIPS contribute positively to the environment by reducing CO2 levels.  They also use significantly less energy during the manufacturing process compared to traditional construction methods, and have lower embodied energy than traditional construction materials, such as steel, concrete, and masonry.

Doors and windows will then be fitted as per your bespoke design specifications.

 

The Roof

Your roof will also be constructed with structural insulated panels attached to the roof trusses, and either lightweight composite tiles or an EPDM flat roof – as per your instructions. Internally, the ceiling can be clad in uPVC panels, or fully plastered and painted depending on your preference and budget. 

 

The Finish

There are a range of external finishes to choose from, such as brick slip, render, or cladding. The internal finish will be to your specification re flooring, paint colours, tiles, lighting, etc.
