The STREIF timber frame building system is just as at home when used for the construction of multi-unit apartment buildings as it is for a one off dwelling. In fact the STREIF closed panel timber frame system provides a robust solution to meeting the more stringent requirements for multi-unit apartment buildings under UK Building Regulations.
Our timber frame system can be supplied in a number of different standard formats with varying levels of acoustic and fire ratings to ensure your building meets these enhanced requirements. Provision of panels and cassettes with fire resistance of 30, 60 and 90 minutes and acoustic performance levels from RW = 45dB up to RW = 80dB are easily achieved. Furthermore, due to the nature of the closed panel system we can ensure any risk from fire during construction is minimized as the panels come to site sheathed and ready for erection.
We have a prestigious BM Trada Q Mark
Another significant reason why the STREIF system is ahead of the competition is that we hold a BM Trada Q Mark. This highly regarded certification is the ultimate endorsement of a products performance. Oh, and we still have the only closed panel timber frame building system in the UK that has earned a BM Trada Q Mark!

Built in 2009 for Worthing Homes Housing Association and designed by architects Miller Hughes Associates, Lyndhurst Rd was the second joint venture between STREIF and main contractor W Stirland Ltd. The 848 m² building, containing 12 flats arranged over three floors, is situated in a conservation area and was therefore required to blend in with the surrounding Victorian stuccoed villas. The result is a building that would be hard to distinguish from its... more
