Cost Comparisons Summary

In summary one is led to the view that using Timber Frame:-

  • Can save on foundation costs 
  • Make site otherwise unviable due to e.g. poor ground, or trees, developable 
  • Save costs on the construction of external walls 
  • Cut costs via reduced build times (see section Comparative Build Time) 
  • Likewise reduce costs of ‘preliminaries’ and Plant & Equipment hire charges 
  • Make it easier and therefore less costly to design to meet new Building Regulations 
  • Cut costs of Testing & Certification by use of proven methods 
  • Potential reduced costs of finance, mortgages, rent, etc. due to shorter build period.
