While we prefer to keep our hands on the entire timber framing process, in certain cases, passing the baton makes sense. Those cases include building projects that require heavy equipment such as a crane, when the crew possesses the expertise, and when the element is repeated in a large building project. As an example, using a crane onsite can make the process easier and more efficient, as it allows the components to be lifted and placed into position quickly and safely.
Pre-assembling timber framed components, such as trusses or parts of a frame, are prefabricated offsite in our workshop and then delivered to the construction site for installation. This approach is cost-effective and efficient for several reasons. It allows for more precise and accurate construction because the parts can be carefully measured and cut in a controlled environment. It reduces the need for onsite cutting and fitting of materials, which in turn saves time and money.
Additionally, pre-assembling the frame in the shop allows the same craftspeople who cut the frame to also put it up, which improves efficiency and reduces the need for multiple skilled tradespeople on the construction site. This also reduces the risk of errors or mistakes during the construction process.
Overall, pre-assembling parts of a frame in the shop is a valuable approach for many construction projects, particularly those that require a high level of accuracy or have tight deadlines.
