The advantages of offsite manufactured housing solutions are easily defined by:
- Speed of Construction
The high degree of factory prefabrication enables a rapid build process which is not adversely influenced by inclement weather.
- Cost and Programme Certainty
Offsite construction for onsite installation makes programming and costing more predictable than traditional site based methods.
- Quality Assurances
Stringent factory quality controls enhance the manufacture of offsite buildings, delivering a high-performance building envelope.
- Energy Efficiency
High performance, airtight structures vastly reduce energy consumption across the life of the building.
- Design Flexibility
With wide range of innovative products and cladding solutions, timber systems can meet the aspirations of designers and architects.
All STA members are strongly encouraged to only use timber from PEFC or FSC certified sources, ensuring responsible management of the world’s forests.
Building with structural timber systems is sustainable, economic, thermally efficient and fast. In short, it’s a great way to build!
