Supply and Fit

SilvaFrame Structures Ltd works in partnership with Timber Frame erectors, SC4 Carpenters Ltd, to provide a high quality supply and fit service for its timber frame products.

Good Design combined with High Quality Installation ensures Sustainable, Fast and Efficient Build Process 

  • Maximising Thermal Performance: Insulation ensuring good U-values while maximising floor area
  • Minimising Thermal (Cold) Bridging: Caused by a

     break in the continuity of the insulation.


  • Minimising Thermal Bypass: Reducing movement of unheated air within cavity party walls, roof spaces, underfloor walls.
  • Maximising Airtightness (reducing air leakage): Timber frame, unlike masonry, can minimise air leakage through use of floor band vapour control membrane  
  • Rapid Construction: The Timberframe is quickly erected and water-tight including roof, enabling internal and external trades to work in parallel.

Jim & Yvonne' New 5 Bed Home

Rapid progress of timber frame enabled us to move into our wonderful new home within 10 months.

July 2015  

Winchcombe Cottage

After 40 years happily living in Winchcombe Cottage we realised the time had come for an upgrade.

After reviewing options we concluded that rebuilding was better than attempting repair. Used to living in a wooden house we were keen to accept a replacement based on modern, energy efficient, timber frame construction, such as that offered by SilvaFrame Structures in collaboration with SC4 Carpenters Ltd, who designed, project managed and built the house.

SC4 dealt with the design, planning consent and construction, carrying out timberframe erect, carpentry, roof tiling, kitchen and window fitting, as well as project managing demolition, ground works, mechancial and electrical, including photovoltaics and a pellet-based biomass boiler feeding under floor heating.

In spite of adverse winter weather that delayed completion of the groundworks, once started, the main timber frame structure was delivered and erected in just one day, and was waterproof within a matter of weeks, enabling rapid progress to be made on the interior.

We were able to move back in within 10 months of the demolition of the old house. Designed to fit the original footprint and keeping the main features, including basement and attic, we felt at home at once and continue to appreciate all the energy saving benefits.
