Timberframe Supply, Erect and complete build of a New dwelling in Dundonald

This is a project that we have recently begun in Dundonald just outside Belfast. Our clients approached us requesting a house that they could easily project manage themselves. A home that was easy to heat and leaving them with little energy bills each year was also a criteria that was high on their list.

The build is still in progress but our clients have recently contacted us expressing these kind words: " just like to send my sincere thanks for all the hard work to date. This has resulted in an excellant airtight reading of 1.10 at this stage of the build. We are looking forward to the next stage of our build with you.  Once again a big thank you to all of your team. "

Project Specification:

 External wall Insulation: Insulated with 140mm Therm rigid PIR insulation between studs, and 40mm PIR rigid insulation board fitted on the face of the studwork. This provided ‘A’ Rated wall with a u-value of 0.11 wm²k.

Internal Wall Insulation: Insulated with 100mm Earthwool Ecose Acoustic between studs. Ceiling Insulation Insulated with 150mm of loft roll between joists and 150mm of loft roll on top of the joists. There is 25mm Therm Rigid PIR Insulation board below the joists also. Overall this provides an ‘A’ rated ceiling with a u-value of 0.12wm²k.

Airtight system: We used a metalized Reflective membrane on all are external walls and ceilings. By taping the over laps with metalized tape and sealing around doors and window with Siga Corvum window tape. Using these products and a high standard of workmanship we received a 1 in the buildings Airtight test.

Service batten: Once the airtight membrane is completed we fixed a 50mmx35m batten onto all the external walls and ceilings. This creates a service cavity. This means that no services (Wires or Pipes) need to past through the airtight membrane.

Windows and External doors: To complement the highly effective timber frame walls we fitted light oak PVC windows that were double glazed. To match these PVC windows we also fitted light oak PVC front door set, back door sets and a French door set.
