How we can help

houseplans and hands
Our core business is the provision of timber build systems to self-builders, many of which route through Architectural practices like yours.

By collaborating with architects we can provide an efficient, accurate and technically robust contribution to the design process to the benefit of all involved.

Design Support for Architects - More Information

We appreciate that design is an interactive process and an Architect may find it useful to get some preliminary guidance about the structural solutions available. We are happy to provide outline appraisals during your design development.
We have a number of systems designed to deliver a range of performance from building regulations to Passivhaus standard. You can specify our systems with confidence knowing that the stated performance data is backed by fire testing and full thermal modelling. We can provide you with all the required details allowing you to design with accurate dimensions within your model.

 
We provide a free SAP calculation and EPC certificate with every project. Our scope of supply includes SAP compliant insulation.  We provide you with fully certified Kingspan U value calculations including condensation risk analysis completely free of charge. For those Clients taking external joinery from us, a free air test is also included.

 
As part of the order delivery process we provide a complete set of superstructure calculations and details for Part A compliance. This includes accurate loadings for foundation design.

 
Recent changes to CDM regulations are quite onerous and we help you and your client avoid the risks of non-compliance. Every project benefits from a dedicated KTS project manager.
Apart from the obvious comfort of dealing with a longstanding company backed by the financial security of a Global PLC, we are happy to provide accurate quotations on an agreed scope of work. Our scope includes site construction of our frame and may extend to supply and fit for external joinery and roofline.
We use high quality components within an ISO9001/ 14001 & 18001 audited factory to produce a product that your Client will be pleased with. Our external joinery offering includes PVCu & high end factory finished.
