There are three crucial advantages that the STREIF closed panel timber frame can provide for a developer.
Faster construction times. With our timber frame system, construction times can often be reduced by as much as 50%. This means that houses can be marketed and occupied sooner ensuring developers a greater return on their investment and the ability to move on to the next project earlier.
Greater cost certainty. As a developer cost is everything and key to ensuring margins are met. As all STREIF timber frame houses are manufactured off-site which requires a forensic approach to the design before moving to the production stage, we can be sure the price you are quoted is the price you will pay. This means no nasty surprises or unexpected last minute costs as is nearly always the case with traditional on-site construction.
Much higher quality. As all our buildings are manufactured off-site under controlled factory conditions by fully trained craftsmen we can ensure the finished product is first rate every time. In fact we hold a prestigious RAL Quality Mark(Gütezeichen), one of many accreditations we have for the STREIF closed panel timber frame system and its manufacturing process. Just check out the certification page to see the complete list.
All of the above can give you the edge in a highly competitive residential market.
