There are at least five different levels of approach, including hybrids of mixed timber frame and concrete, one of which is bound to suit your project perfectly.
Before you lift a finger, it costs nothing to share project ideas with us. Combining our experience with your plans will result in significant improvements to your project. Our consultation includes integrating services and finishes at the factory and incorporating bathroom and kitchen pods in the assembly process. We can also help you reduce duplication in your professional team. Fact is, the earlier we are on board the greater the contribution we can make to a faster, under budget and successful project.
One Size Does Not Fit All
At OCCL we understand one size will not fit all. We conduct a detailed review of your projects and advise on the timber system that will be most competitive and efficient for your building.
We have long established relationships with a range of manufacturers that all specialise in different sectors of the market. These include:
- Closed Panel Timber Frame
- Open Panel Timber Frame
- Cross Laminate Timber CLT
- Glulam Posts and Beam
- Specialist Timber Hybrid Systems
- Steel, Concrete & Timber Hybrid Systems
Once we have agreed on the ideal system for your needs, we will organise the manufacture, delivery and supply of the product to your site.
If required, we also offer a full and specific timber frame project management role. We can offer flexible support to cater for both those new to timber frame construction, and those with familiar with timber frame systems.
When OCCL are appointed for specific project management support we will ensure that the sub-structure, services and frame solution will co-ordinate with the architectural design and that the follow on trades are sequenced so that they finish the building quickly and efficiently.
Sequence is the key
Sequencing is an important part of any building project, but efficient sequencing becomes essential when the building is manufactured offsite, and large volumes of the building are received on site in a short space of time. OCCL are able to offer detailed programming support not only for our element of the works but also for your full construction project. We will support your site team to adapt to a sequence of works quite different from a traditional build program. Traditional construction requires extensive on site planning. With our efficient and creative programming of the follow-on trades, the site team can take advantage of enhanced construction speeds. Once they see the benefits of this method your team will be keen to take on new projects with Offsite Construction.
