timber frame systems
The ultimate renewable resource
3b construction specialises in the manufacture, supply and assembly of timber frame kit homes for single, new house builds and full developments, throughout Scotland and the rest of the United Kingdom.
Our technical services staff will work closely with you and your architect to ensure the final production drawings meet your requirements.
A timber frame kit home allows maximum design flexibility, while providing excellent thermal and acoustic performance. The components are relatively lightweight, and are manufactured under controlled conditions by experienced joiners in our in-house facility, before transportation to the site for assembly.
Timber frame homes can be erected quickly, reducing labour and plant costs, when compared to other building methods. All our timber frame homes are designed to comply fully with current building standards and NHBC requirements.
traditional build systems
Traditional brick and block homes remain a popular form of building, and 3b construction has the resources and skills to carry out this type of construction. Traditional build is basically a wet brick and block build, constructed with a block built internal skin and cavity, followed by a brick external facing.
The cost of traditional build is broadly similar to other construction methods, and the insulation performance required by current building standards can easily be achieved.
We offer a design and build service for all types of structural and architectural steel work. We can design, detail and fabricate structural steel for any project. Our construction teams carry out erection on site, ensuring you receive a complete service, from initial enquiry through to final handover.
