Two New Timber Frame Homes for Developer in Essex

Vision manufactured two prefabricated timber frame homes for Developers, Ardent New Homes Ltd earlier this year with installation completed in September 2020.

The two new homes were constructed at the same time, with all the ground floor panels for both homes fitted, followed by the first floor and then the roofs.

The timber frame panel system used for both these new builds was our open panel and the insulation used was Actis Hybris achieving a U Value of 0.16 for the external walls (finish to be block and render).

The internal face of the panels were fitted with Actis HControl Hybrid  and battened ready for plasterboarding.

Below are some photos of the internal views of the timber frame structures.

The finished homes will feature five bedrooms, study, two en-suites and a family bathroom coming to the market town of Saffron Walden, Essex in February 2021. To get an idea of the finishes for these two homes, the developer has had the following CGI’s made for marketing.

Here’s what they had to say regarding the products and services we offered them…

Ardent New Homes is an independently owned development contractor with over 20 years combined experience in construction our reputation is important to us so we take time to do our due diligence when selecting products for our builds. We were fortunate to find Vision Development who fabricated a timber of the highest standard using quality modern manufacturing techniques, keeping to time schedule and budget which is of paramount importance for any developer. The timber frame has sped up the program of works and I am really pleased with the finished product. Thanks to the ‘Vision Team’, hope to do more business in the future.
