the toughest timber frame system

STREIF  buildings are structurally engineered to British Standards, fully comply with the latest UK Building Regulations, and are still the only timber frame building system to have earned a BM Trada Q-Mark. They score highly under Code for Sustainable Homes, BREEAM and PassivHaus, and routinely achieve U-values down to 0.12 W/m²K.

Technically, the STREIF wall system is known as 'closed panel' or ‘advanced panel’, which means that the super insulated solid timber frame already has its internal and external skins, windows, doors and even the electrical conduits and cut-outs fixed in place before delivery to site. All this is done by a highly skilled workforce, working under ideal factory conditions and to exacting quality control standards.

The STREIF wall, floor and roof panels, which can each be up to 13 metres long and 3 metres high, are then transported to site to be assembled by experienced British and German crews working alongside cranes. A small two storey house typically goes up in a day, whilst a three storey thirty apartment block might take three weeks – either way that’s quick!
