Will wood really be strong enough?

Timber Frame in the 21st century is recognised as a major force in UK construction and its name applies it is a method of building which relies on a timber frame as a basic means of structural support.

Stiffened by sheathing materials, the frame is capable of supporting multi-storey, wide span structures and withstanding lateral loads. The engineered and factory manufactured Timber Frame guarantees the highest level of accuracy and quality and simplifies on site construction significantly.

The outer leaf of the building can be of any standard finish such as brick, block, stone, render or timber and combined with moisture and vapour barriers, plasterboard internally and high performance non combustible insulation gives a complete structure. Roofs are usually timber Trusses and these are designed and engineered to be support on the structural timber frame and internal load-bearing walls.
