On Site

Once we have completed the designs, received the necessary permissions, and we are ready to begin the project, we will begin work on site. Before we begin assembling your new timber framed house or extension, we must first prepare the site with all necessary groundwork. This preparation includes ground clearance, marking the build boundaries, drainage, piling, and laying the foundations amongst other responsibilities that may arise depending on the project.

Assembly can take anywhere between 5-7 days for a large garden-facing extension through to several weeks for a larger or more detailed project such as a timber framed new build home. All associated trades are brought into play at the relevant times to ensure efficient progress throughout the build, giving our construction company the best chance to avoid unnecessary or unforeseen delays. We happily work alongside other property professionals to ensure the build process goes smoothly.


Assembling Your Property or Extension

With the groundwork, drainage, and landscaping completed, our construction team can begin the assembly of your property or extension.  Depending on your property development project, the completed timber frame will either arrive by our own four-wheel trucks and trailers or by larger articulated truck haulage. All of the components of the completed frame are coded to ensure a swift, clean, and efficiently assembly and erection process.

Our building technique helps to reduce our time on site considerably, which equates to less mess, less disruption for you, and less weather-dependant down time. Having 80% of the work done prior to even setting foot on site is a huge bonus when dealing with the British climate. Our assembly process also allows for other tradespeople to continue their work, because the building is made watertight in a matter of days, meaning you can install interior structures and electricity faster than you’d otherwise be able to.
