Frame Technologies is at the forefront of innovations in timber frame construction – delivering value, energy efficient and environmentally sound solutions for bespoke projects.  Offering numerous benefits – timber frame construction is rapidly gaining traction within the self-build community.  Speed and quality of construction, combined with improved levels of project efficiency and vast reductions in on-going running costs, are compelling benefits to influence specification decisions.

 

DESIGN OPTIONS:

Frame Technologies have worked on a variety of energy efficient self-build projects throughout the UK – every project is bespoke and designed to individual requirements.  Frame Technologies work in partnership to establish your objectives and aspirations, then consult with architects and engineers to refine these ideas into a deliverable plan.  The experienced team offers a flexible approach to customers’ requirements and can provide a cost estimate based on pre-planning drawings or a full quotation based on approved plans.

 

CONSTRUCTION CHOICES:

As a responsible organisation, Frame Technologies uses sustainably sourced timber and has developed a breathable Closed Panel System to address the areas of thermal bridging and air leakage. The innovative Tech-Vantage System helps deliver actual in-use energy performance as specified in the design brief.

Tech-Vantage E is based on a single panel system with U-values ranging from 0.26 to 0.16 with the additional liner sheet enabling very low U-Values to be achieved.  The Tech-Vantage S is based on a single panel system with U-Values ranging from 0.15 to 0.24 W/m2K.  The Tech-Vantage T is a twin wall frame system with U-Values ranging from 0.09 to 0.13W/m2K using a standard 270mm deep panel.

 

CONTRACT SCOPE:

Frame Technologies offer clients flexibility.  They can provide a full design, supply and erect package, and they’ll also take pre-existing architects’ design and translate them into a timber frame solution that achieves best value for you and develop the design to achieve the performance brief and budget.  All frames are manufactured under factory controlled conditions before being delivered to site and erected and then handed over to you ready for the follow on trades.

OTHER SERVICES:

Frame Technologies can produce Building Regulations drawings for clients which now also enables a one-stop shop and deliver best value to the end client and deliver ultimate energy efficient performance.  Air tightness is key to this as well and all details can be run to minimise air leakage and reduce thermal bridging with simple detailing that is then transferred into manufacturing information to enable the product to be manufactured in our factory under controlled conditions.

Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) calculations can also be incorporated into your package. Also, offer alternative solutions, such as open panel framing, glulam beams and metal-web joists

PRESTEIGNE TIMBER FRAME MANUFACTURER GOES FOR GOLD

Specialist timber frame manufacturer, designer and supplier – Frame Technologies, has been awarded the highest possible accolade by the UK’s leading structural timber body. Under a new protocol, Frame Technologies has been the first timber frame specialist contractor to be independently audited for the Structural Timber Association’s (STA’s) Membership and Quality Standards Scheme – STA Assure. The Presteigne based company achieved Gold Status.

As the leading organisation representing the structural timber sector, the STA has recently advanced this scheme, which is designed to benefit both clients and members by promoting the differing accreditations and quality standards held by individual STA member companies. Offering reassurances to self builders and the wider construction community that members meet or even exceed current legislation and regulatory requirements – STA Assure has been upgraded from self-assessment to an independently audited scheme.

STA Assure has established three levels of membership; Gold, Silver and Bronze. The two top tiers have received formal recognition from six of the industry’s leading structural warranty and building control bodies. Manufacturing members of the STA, are put through the rigorous auditing process to ensure clients receive assurances that the company implements stringent management processes to ensure greater control over quality, productivity and predictability.

Managing Director of Frame Technologies, Simon Orrells said: “As members of the STA, we follow industry best practice and our structural timber solutions are manufactured to exacting standards in our own factory in Presteigne, Wales.

“I am very proud that Frame Technologies has achieved Gold status in the STA Assure Membership and Quality Standards Scheme. Every one of our self build project is unique, one of a kind and undeniably special. This is potentially the largest investment that our client’s will ever make and therefore, selecting their design and construction partner is a significant decision. This achievement will offer confidence to self builders who are considering using one of our systems, knowing that we have been independently audited and come out on top.”
