CRUCIS DESIGNS have extensive experience of timber frame structures. Our team have worked on projects ranging from bespoke glulam frame houses, to multi-storey residential blocks and eco-schools. All our designs are carried out by Chartered Engineers and we believe in providing the highest quality service to our clients.
Our expertise and experience means that we can advise you on the best methods, materials and approach for your buildings, and we will work as an integral part of the design team to ensure a cost effective, fully co-ordinated and buildable solution.
Concept Design & Feasibility Studies
At CRUCIS DESIGNS we want to be involved as part of the design team at the concept stage; we believe that design decisions made early on are crucial to the overall success of the project. Informed decisions at this stage will give cost savings throughout the build.
We can provide detailed feasibility studies for timber frame structures. We will review the architect’s concepts and report on the suitability for timber frame construction, the type of construction (platform frame, post and beam etc), and advise on any design developments to increase suitability, reduce costs and enhance buildability.
If you are a timber frame fabricator with your own drawing resource but are in need of additional structural design capacity we can help. We will work with you to provide:
- Full structural design for the timber frame using your preferred products
- General arrangement information for your detailers
- Line and point loads for foundation or podium design.
- Full structural specification
Working with our partners we can provide full fabrication drawings for all components of the timber frame. Output files will be provided to suit your factory specific requirements.
CRUCIS DESIGNS are able to offer NHBC Timber Frame Certification and can issue form HB 2445
CRUCIS DESIGNS are available to carry out inspections of existing timber frame structures nationwide.
