UK-based off-site frame manufacturing

Potton’s timber-frame and SIPs homes are precision engineered in our factory in Cambridgeshire to your design and specifications, resulting in a bespoke home that tailors exactly to the demands of your lifestyle. Constructing the frame off site in this way has several benefits, not least of which is less waste – important from both an environmental and cost point of view. The exact pre-cutting and assembly of the frame in the factory also has a significant impact on the energy efficiency and airtightness of your final build, enhancing both and exceeding the levels required by Building Regulations.

Straightforward, quick build

Once on site, the erection of the frame is straightforward and quicker than with a traditional masonry build. All of Potton’s erectors are approved by the STA (Structural Timber Association) meeting quality standards and regulatory requirements.

Potton’s closed-panel timber frames, are built with optimal insulation for thermal performance and designed to help reduce thermal bridging. Their structural insulated panels (SIPs) are ideal if you aspire to Passivhaus standard and their Elsworth show home is an excellent example of this. The benefits to timber frame and SIPs are many – walls are slimmer compared to masonry construction, because high performance insulation is contained inside each closed panel. This means you’ll create a larger floor space on the same size footprint allowing you to maximise your living space.
