No Concrete | No Displacement | Gradients
For our structures, we use a building control-compliant ground screw system. Our complete foundation solution provides a strong, level base to build upon.
Simple and efficient to install compared to traditional concrete foundations, ground screws provide you with the following benefits:
No groundwork required, no earth disturbance/removal, no environmental impact
No concrete is used. for a 4m x 5m footprint screws produce a fifth of the embedded carbon compared to cement.
Practical. can be installed on hard-to-access, sloping and uneven ground, in any weather.
Stronger | Faster | Greener
All of our spaces are built using SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels). SIPs buildings outperform like-for-like designs using traditional building methods in all key areas:
SIPs are stronger. 7 x timber frame. 2 x standard brick.
SIPs are faster. Pre-fab panels facilitate expedient construction.
SIPs are greener. OSB (Orientated Strand Board), manufactured from waste wood fibre. 30% less timber required over timber frame build.
SIPs are more thermally efficient. Rigid polyurethane (PUR) insulation in panels. Minimal thermal bridging.
Entry & Glazing
Timber-Framed | Alu-clad
We offer the highest quality NorDan double-glazed alu-clad timber frame windows and doors as standard. Alternatively, we can offer aluminum framed doors & windows from Vufold. All styles available: balcony, bi-fold, or sliding. Specialist taping is used around the perimeter of all windows and doors to bridge the cavity to the structure and ensure weather and air tightness.
Our glazing offers long-term weather resistance, eliminates maintenance and extends product life.
For bespoke designs, alternative products such as frameless windows and skylights are available.
Sustainable | Durable
We use Scottish larch as standard, configured to your preference: board on board; tongue & groove; shadow gap; shiplap.
The material is naturally durable, long-lasting, and perfectly suited for the British climate. It will darken/silver with age, meaning the exterior will mature with time alongside nature.
We install a seamless EPDM rubber roof covering as standard.
Alternative cladding options are:
Shou Sugi Ban (charred Japanese Cypress)
Abode & IRO treated timbers
We also can install a green roof (sedum) for installations where the roof is visible or you want to further blend into the natural environment.
Creative | Desirable
We want your space to have that sharp stylish internal finish you desire. That’s why our standard internal finish is plasterboard and painted with a colour according to your specification. A high-quality engineered oak floor with attractive double-groove white skirting boards gives a crisp finish.
Where requested, electric underfloor heating with an app-controlled thermostat can be installed (internet access required).
If you have something specific in mind for your finish let us know. From acoustically treated walls and cork flooring to shadow gap plywood walls and polished cement underfoot, we are sure we can create your vision.
