Welcome to the Lowfield Timber Frames newsletter, bringing you the latest news, projects and events. 

As we are approaching the last quarter of the year it's great to inform you that we are still busy with enquiries coming in and have many projects in the pipeline. With continued investment in people and technologies our capabilities are constantly increasing in regards to volumes and reduction in lead-times.


A low energy future

Lowfield Timber Frames have recently secured several Passive House contracts including one-off dwellings, Housing developments and a couple of large scale schools. With more focus on sustainability moving forward, we envisage many more enquiries of a low energy nature coming through our doors. 

We were proud to have been involved with two local Passive House projects, one being the Church in Wales School in Welshpool and the other being a development of 7 social housing dwellings in Sarn, both of which were located less than 12 miles from our factory. 

We have been shortlisted for the Structural Timber Awards 'Low Energy' category for the Sarn development. We look forward to the awards ceremony in October.  




Lowfields TV appearance

Did you spot us on More 4’s Great British Home Restoration on Sunday?
We were featured on the programme working on a restoration project of an old mill on the banks of the River Severn in Llanidloes, Powys.

It was a complex build for us as it involved erecting the timber frame inside of the original structure to provide thermal insulation for the stonework shell and to extend part of the building. It was a great project to work on and the finished house looks spectacular!

Residential Housing with 24 hour care support for Newtown Powys
 

Lowfield Timber Frames are looking back on some of their past projects. Let's go back to 2016 and take a look at Severnside care home in Newtown.

The circa £7+mil, 48-apartment development has a mix of energy efficient one and two-bed homes and was built in partnership with Anwyl Construction and Powys County Council.

The affordable housing is situated in a picturesque location on the banks of the River Severn. The development was the first extra care scheme in Powys offering a modern new way of living with 24 hours a day care. Residential priority is given to people already living in Powys.

Low Carbon Development with JEHU Group For Wales West Housing

Lowfield Timber Frames were delighted to be a part of this fantastic project, supplying the timber frames for 14 Eco Homes in Bryn Bragl, Bridgend. The scheme was built using the Kingspan TEK building system and were designed to use daylight to provide the majority of their energy.

The build consisted of one block of 4 flats and 5 pairs of Semi-detached houses. 

By building a highly insulated, warm property and using the latest technologies, the homes will be able to generate their own electricity to run the heating and appliances and save money for residents living in them through lower energy bills.

The Timber Frames Process
1 . Timber is delivered into our yard which has been sustainably sourced through chain of custody and is a mixture of Scandinavian and home-grown. Our timber is certified PEFC.
2. Timber is unpacked, treated in our on-site treatment facility and stored to ensure the moisture content is sufficient before being cut to size. 
3. Timbers are cut via our two Hundegger machines in our cutting shop. The machines are programmed to cut timbers to unique cutting files created by our processing department. This process reduces waste due to optimization and ensures a high level of accuracy.
4. Cut timbers have extra treatment applied to the cut ends and are stored on racking ready to be manufactured into panels.
5. Panels are assembled to manufacturing drawings in our purpose-built factory. On average we produce 1000 pre-insulated panels per week, alongside floor and roof cassettes. 
6. Panels are packed stored in our yard until delivery day.
7. Our lorries are loaded up and panels are delivered to site.
8. Timber Frame kits are erected on site, standard one-off dwellings can be erected in as little as 3 days.
