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
Triple Glazed | Timber-Framed
We supply the highest quality triple-glazed alu-clad timber frame windows and doors as standard. Specialist taping is used around the perimeter of all windows and doors to bridge the cavity to the structure and ensure weather and airtightness.
Large range of window and door colours available.
Alu-clad improves 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. this can be configured to your preference: board on board; tongue & groove; shadow gap; shiplap.
The material is durable, long-lasting, and perfectly suited for the British climate. It will change colour with age, meaning your bothy will mature and develop over it's life alongside nature.
We install a seamless EPDM rubber roof covering as standard.
Looking for something unique? We've identified a number of exterior finishes that we think you will like. 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.
