Front cover of the latest Grand Designs Magazine features a recent project of ours – striking design and proud to have been involved!
It is actually one of the smallest jobs Timber Innovations has done, and our role in it was relatively peripheral. But we were happy to help, we liked what Paul was seeking to achieve, and the finished product is fantastic.
This year Timber Innovations has a bigger and better stand than ever before, and we will be exhibiting alongside our partners from Wyckham Blackwell, the timber engineering solutions experts, and Keylite, a major player in supply of roof windows.
Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) are a method of construction that have actually been around for some time – indeed, SIPs are popular in the United States, where they have been in use for over half a century. But then, they do say that what starts off as a good idea in the USA inevitably finds its way to the UK once it takes off on the other side of the Atlantic.
An advanced method of construction, SIPs offer excellent thermal performance, light-weight structural strength. SIPs use less timber than traditional timber frame and are one of the most economical and eco-friendly forms of construction.
We did it as part of a self-build project we were involved with, the with idea to compare the installation of Actis Hybris’ installation and performance with that of traditional PIR board, and with the blessing of our client. We have done this because we are always looking to give Timber Innovations’ customers the very best in installation and value.
Punit’s new home is on the periphery of Stratford upon Avon, and the project has taken him three and a half years from first starting to look for the land, to the point where he can finally move in with his young family.
“It’s all very exciting,” he said.
The “STA Assure” membership and quality standards scheme defines levels of accreditation designed to provide assurance for customers.
The criteria set out for a Gold member such as ourselves means that we have demonstrated the highest levels of quality and performance across a range of industry standards.
But the easy life is not in his DNA. And he wanted a challenge. So, undeterred by his advanced years, he chose to do a self-build project. Now, 18 months after he first set out, Paul is on the verge of moving into his dream home.
