Eco Homes, the affordable approach to passive house brings low energy housing to everyone. Air tightness and insulation are the two key factors to achieving better performing homes. Eco Homes Direct can help plan and design your aspirational dream home and use eco friendly modern build techniques, working with Canadian partners to bring low energy homes to the UK. For more information, please take a look at our brochure.
Off site construction with everything made under one roof in the factory is the most efficient approach to building future proofed homes accurately and on time. Increased savings on time and labour are made due to fully integrated closed panel timber engineered wall systems, roof and floor cassettes reducing time, labour and waste on site. Fabric first principles make off site construction the affordable solution to exceeding UK building regulations for a better living environment and reducing energy costs.
To meet the new code for sustainable homes and reduced carbon footprints timber engineered systems are one of the preferred build concept for future low energy housing. Fast, cost effective solutions with renewable resources give a strong and eco solution to complex design projects across a broad range of buildings. “Build tight, ventilate right” with high levels of insulation that can be flexible to suit all budgets is the solution to energy efficient homes.
Eco friendly precision engineered timber framed homes
Eco Homes Direct, design, supply and build eco friendly pre-engineered low energy timber framed homes for self build and property developers.
We offer cost effective low energy builds for residential self-builders and developers, housing associations, government and social housing, care homes and retirement villages, schools and academies, sports and leisure and clubs.
Eco Homes Direct offers both open and closed panel systems incorporating airtight timber framed design and is fast and easy to construct onsite. Much of the build is prefabricated in carefully chosen manufacturing operations making our Closed Panel System with fully integrated, well insulated, airtight timber wall systems, floors & roof cassettes already fitted with electrical conduits & back boxes, plasterboard, windows and doors as necessary.
Eco Homes Direct offers a whole house approach guaranteeing high quality performance for low energy homes.
The Eco Homes timber frame panel system not only offers significant energy savings, but can also improve the living environment as the quality of air inside is cleaner than outside when using our heat, retention, ventilating systems along with our advanced applications for airtightness.
We can help you with all aspects of your project from planning, architectural designs, offsite construction, onsite erection and project management. Please get in touch to find out how we can make your project a reality.
Benefits of Timber Framed Homes
- Onsite Construction time is faster by as much as one third.
- Weathertight in days so weather issues are reduced
- Less onsite waste
- Achieves CSH Codes Levels 3 and higher cost effectively
- Excellent strength to weight ratio allowing lighter construction
- Improved sound insulation and air-tightness
- Higher thermal insulation at an economic price
- Strength for strength, concrete and steel uses 5 times more energy to produce than timber.
- Timber Frame is a dry form of construction – no drying out period. You will not get drying out cracks common in wet construction.
- Exceeds fire regulations
- Health & Safety is paramount in ALL our operations, risk assessments and method statements are insisted on at all stages of our builds
