A greener build
Lowfield Timber Frames has seen a huge increase in the demand to build greener, with energy prices soaring the focus on sustainability, low energy consumption and net carbon zero homes has never been so important. More and more educational developments are requesting Passive House Standards to comply with their local authorities plans to build low-energy schools for a greener future. Lowfield Timber Frames has also had an increase in commercial enquiries for timber frame construction as more energy conscience developers seek sustainable credentials.
