Sustainability

 

What is Sustainability?

"Sustainability is all about meeting the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations. It can be measured in terms of economic, environmental and social value."

Cut the financial and environmental costs of your building

Eco Timber Homes produce some of the most advanced and functional building systems available. They are designed and manufactured under controlled conditions using the latest CAD technology in state-of-the-art production facilities. The panelised timber buildings are built in our factory before being delivered to site by container, where they are craned onto pre-prepared foundations in a matter of days / weeks.

Studies have shown that our modular method of construction offers considerable whole-life value benefits, including:

Economic Benefits
  • Construction predictability: Costly time and budget overruns are a major concern among construction clients. Because it is factory based, Panelised building manufacture is not disrupted by weather conditions, site characteristics or trade shortages.
  • Speed of construction: Build times can be reduced by up to 50% using modular building methods, leading to proportionate savings in site costs and an earlier return on investment.
  • Quality control: Factory-based manufacturing environment delivers consistently high quality standards through close control of the entire construction process.
Environmental Benefits
  • Better building performance: Factory production means buildings are manufactured to very tight tolerances. Use of cutting edge software ensures that every building designed by Eco Timber Homes has carbon emission rates which will either meet or exceed the requirements of Building Regulations Part L2. Tests conducted by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) on our building solution have shown that it exceeds the Building Regulations Part L air permeability requirements by 70% – resulting in exceptional energy efficiency performance for reduced energy consumption.
  • Ozone-friendly materials: The insulation materials used in the walls, roof and floor of Eco Timber Homes buildings have an ODP (Ozone Depleting Potential) of zero – minimising their impact on the environment.
  • Reduced noise and pollution: Fewer vehicle movements mean less environmental pollution because of reduced vehicle mileage. Noise levels on site are also minimised.
  • Recycling of materials: Eco Timber Homes buildings are manufactured with use of our partners and recycling in mind. All our waste products are recycled
  • Less waste: The amount of waste generated at both the factory and the site location is minimised. The Eco Timber Homes manufacturing facility recycles more than 90% of its waste, and the cost of waste sent to landfill has been reduced by 95% over the last three years.
Social Benefits
  • Improved health and safety: Factory-based construction offers an intrinsically safer working environment than a traditional construction site. The need to work at height on site is removed.

Eco Timber Homes are committed to sustainability through our energy-saving and environmental programmes. From the back-office through to the building site we employ green methods wherever possible.
