Facts and Figures
In the 21st century, construction has become an increasingly technical subject and with such an advanced hybrid construction building method as Val-U-Therm it is important to consider this aspect. The key information is therefore collected together in this section with a series of downloads for ease of reference.

Val-U-Therm comprises a central layer of highly insulating foam. This is injected into specially made timber frame panels using the most advanced high-pressure technology and fills every space in the panel void.
Val-U-Therm is factory-manufactured using state-of-the-art computer-controlled machinery. The CAD/CAM manufacturing process used for Val-U-Therm is designed to be as high-precision and resource-efficient as possible.
Val-U-Therm can reduce build times by one third or more when compared to other construction techniques. In the video below, a three bedroom bungalow is wind and weathertight in less than two hours.
This video shows the construction of Kingdom House, the first PassivHaus for rent in the UK and Winner of the Green Apple Award for Scotland, 2011. It was wind and weathertight within one day.
