GMB Developments specialise in standard or traditional building methods. Construction generally includes an inner skin of concrete blocks, an outer skin of facing bricks and a layer of insulation between the two. (the vast majority of houses in UK are built this way) This method presents a large number of design options.
Timber Frame Construction
Timber frame construction is a method of building which relies on a timber frame as a basic means of structural support. Framed buildings are often referred to as ‘lightweight construction’, but don’t be misled – like the skeleton in your body, it’s a precision engineered structure that is remarkably strong and durable.
During construction, open panel timber frame is covered internally by plasterboard, filled with high performance insulation. Moisture/vapour barriers are incorporated and the outer leaf of the wall completes the structure. The outer leaf is typically stone, brick, render or timber to suit the local vernacular and planning requirements.
