Shortlisted for the 2017 Build It Awards
Val-U-Therm projects by both Flight Timber and Scotframe have been short-listed at the Build It Awards 2017. Brooklyn, Billericay by Flight Timber for Best Timber Frame Home and Millbank House by Scotframe for Best Timber Frame Home and Best Eco Home.
With land availability issues, particularly in SE England, Brooklyn, Billericay by Flight Timber is an exemplar of an increasingly typical approach; demolishing a 1950’s chalet bungalow with 196m2 floor area and replacing it with a 355m2 21st century family home. The replacement dwelling on a private road in the greenbelt area now provides an impressive modern-day house with a range of internal spaces to suit the needs of a typical family home. The final approach gives a suitable solution to modernising this building with a mixture of materials that will last for many years to come.
The Val-U-Therm low energy building system provides excellent levels of thermal insulation, thermal bridging & air tightness. This allowed a design trade-off to permit large window areas taking advantage of the views over the front amenity space and open rural landscape to the rear. For further details - click here.
