Building your own home can be rewarding and challenging in equal measure. There will be times during the project when you will simply need support – as a family business, our services go above and beyond the norm. From a friendly chat and reassurance to expert technical advice, we work closely in partnership with self-builders to establish your objectives and achieve your design aspirations.
When building your own home, it is crucial that the design and construction processes are in the hands of a reputable company that you can trust, a specialist that not only offers expertise in structural timber technology but also has an adaptable approach to meet your individual needs and achieve the exacting standards laid out in the Building Regulations. This is where Frame Technologies come in. With over 20 years’ experience in the UK timber industry, we design, manufacture and install bespoke structural timber systems for self-builders who are looking to create outstanding energy-efficient homes.
Frame Technologies offer a wide range of timber frame services from full supply and erect packages to supply only. With an extensive product portfolio, we have developed award-winning structural timber systems that have the capability to exceed Building Regulations to deliver and, if the brief demands, the ultimate Passivhaus performance.
As a member of the Structural Timber Association, we follow industry best practice – our timber solutions are manufactured to exacting standards in our own factory in Presteigne, Wales. We have been independently audited for the Structural Timber Association’s membership and quality standards scheme, STA Assure, and were the first to achieve the ultimate Gold Standard Accreditation. As a responsible organisation, Frame Technologies are committed to sourcing timber from well managed forests with full traceability.
Winner of the Build It Award for Best Timber Frame Home, Frame Technologies offers a wide range of timber systems to meet the individual needs of self-builders. Whether you require an end-to-end process with a full supply and erect package or a supply only option, we can meet your design and build needs.
Each package can be tailored to include engineered timber products, roof systems and windows to fit your design specification. All our packages deliver premium quality and value with enhanced performance and safety together with impressive speed of installation and sustainability.
To address thermal bridging and air leakage, Frame Technologies has developed a breathable Closed Panel System, which is available as a standard or premium series. The standard series is based on a single panel system with U-Values from 0.18 – 0.23 W/m2k. The premium series is a development of our Twin Wall Frame system with U-Values ranging from 0.11 – 0.14 W/m2K using a standard 270mm deep panel. Both systems deliver excellent thermal and airtightness properties to ensure comfort in your self-build home and meet the energy efficiency specifications from architects and self-builders.
To maximise the potential of offsite manufactured timber systems, Frame Technologies prefer to get involved from the early design stages. Alongside supply only packages, we provide end-to-end services so that self-builders have a single point of contact throughout the design and construction journey – delivering projects on time and on budget.
With Frame Technologies, every stage of the design and manufacturing process is tailored to your requirements. We design, fully engineer and offsite manufacture advanced timber systems in our factory before transporting to site for installation – ensuring complete consistency and total control. We will work alongside your architects and engineers to transfer designs into a deliverable plan and help you turn your design visions into an energy-efficient, premium-quality home.
All Frame Technologies timber components are manufactured in controlled factory environments to ensure minimised waste and maximised project efficiency through safe onsite working practices. Your design and build needs will be core to all design and manufacture processes, as well as technical advice offered by Frame Technologies.
