[Foxdown Mews, Wellington]
Investor Built Project, A Terrace of Six Homes.
The investors involved in Foxdown Mews were keen to achieve a relatively quick return on their investment. For this purpose, the decision was made to use timber frame. Timber PAK SW Ltd were selected as the Frame Manufacturer. As a modern method of construction (MMC). Building a terrace of six properties achieved a faster construction.
What made the investors decide to use Timber Frame as opposed to traditional brick and block?
The over-riding decision to opt for timber frame was that it was energy efficient and the build time was rapid. Providing a good financial return to the investor was a requirement of the build. The new planning regulations demanded superior energy efficiency standards were adhered to. Timber frame houses achieve and retain excellent energy values, which in turn means the properties are cost efficient. The construction company erected the six properties, to include the roofs, within 3 weeks, enabling other trades and suppliers to work in the dry, prior to the external brickwork cladding being completed.
Having worked alongside an excellent team of professionals. Timber PAK SW Ltd were nothing but exceptional, we were thrilled with the results. We are already looking forward to undertaking the next project together.
