At Klaus EcoHomes we design, manufacture and supply quality cost effective timber frame solutions for every type of building construction, from self build projects through to large-scale developments.
Unlike most timber frame building companies, Klaus EcoHomes Ltd comes from an engineering background, which gives us a number of natural advantages to produce high quality timber frame construction.
We use state-of-the-art precision engineering methods to create your timber frame, reducing the number of links between concept and the finished timber frame building to removing the potential for mistakes. The timber for the timber frame building is cut using computer-controlled machinery, eliminating human error and producing 100% accuracy.
In addition, we use the latest computer aided design software (ADT 2007) to transform architect drawings into a 3 dimensional plan of the timber frame. This allows you to examine the design from any angle, providing a much better insight into how the timber frame building will look and perform. We can even use a digital photograph of the plot to show how the design will look when it is in place.
The need for time-consuming (and therefore costly) adjustment or remedial work on site is eradicated.
Klaus EcoHomes Ltd easily surpass all new Part L building regulations for energy efficient building.
For example, exceptional insulation through Proctor ‘reflective technology’ means that our timber frames construction can achieve a U-Value (heat loss rate) as low as 0.1 – significantly better than the regulation 0.29 required of new timber frame building.
As new regulations come into force next year requiring every home to be energy rated, the desirability and resell values of the most energy efficient buildings are likely to rise dramatically.
This incredible level of energy efficient building is cost-effective at both initial build stage and for the life of the timber frame building. Klaus EcoHomes Ltd.’ innovative service duct system enables services to be installed quickly and easily – no difficult access, no cutting or drilling of the frame – and this drastically reduces the cost of the first fix. Our studies show that energy efficient buildings constructed with Klaus EcoHomes Ltd are similar in cost to traditionally built structures, yet can provide massive ongoing savings in energy consumption throughout the life of the energy efficient building.
Environmental timber frames concerns are becoming an increasing priority for homeowners, developers and the government alike.
At Klaus EcoHomes Ltd, we take our environmental timber frames very seriously. At present, 90% of the materials we use to make environmentally friendly timber frames are fully sustainable, and we are constantly driving to increase that percentage.
All the materials we use are traceable, and other environmental solutions such as grey water systems can be included to further reduce the environmental timber frames footprint.
Environmentally friendly timber frames have many benefits, particularly when using timber from sustainably managed forests, as Klaus EcoHomes Ltd. does. Timber used in our timber frame buildings is genuinely renewable, long-lasting, strong and more fire resistant than the majority of other building materials, and it has consistently been shown to require less remedial work over time. Every material used to create our environmental timber frames has been carefully chosen to achieve our goal of minimum environmental impact.
Klaus EcoHomes can provide a bespoke, efficient, professional and pro-active design and build service on the development of new timber frame housing projects, flats and apartments, garages and timber framed extensions.
