Southouse Architects’ studio


No job too big or small, as Timber Innovations help architect create a stunning modern studio

Timber Innovations is proud of our many working relationships with clients, and other relevant professions, and among them is with the Oxford based architect Paul Southouse. To that extent, we were delighted to be of service when Paul approached us to discuss his idea of creating a studio space, in the garden of his home, to accommodate himself and his staff.

 

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.

The virtue of SIPs

SIPs – a ‘new kid on the block’ that’s continuing to grow in popularity among the self-build community, and others!

A rapidly increasing enthusiasm among self-builders, and others in the construction sector, to opt for SIPs as their primary build method over the past few years is such that it prompted Timber Innovations to launch a specialist customer service catering specifically for this market.

 

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.

Working in partnership to ensure we give our customers the highest quality at all times!

Timber Innovations has been delighted to work alongside insulation manufacturing specialists Actis, in trialling their new Hybris insulation panels – all in the interest of seeking to offer our customers better value for their money.

 

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.

Age is no limit, as Paul proves that a self-build project is worth it at any time of life!

At 76, and 15 years since his retirement, you might have thought Paul Dunningham would have long since been enjoying the easy life.
