Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency and McCavana Timber Frame Buildings

Building controls regulations for new homes are becoming increasingly aggressive in terms of energy efficiency requirements. By 2016, all new homes must be ‘A-rated’ in terms of energy efficiency, which will effectively mean an end to ‘traditional’ concrete block based construction methods.

Timber frame is already known for its energy efficient qualities, and McCavana Timber Frame Homes is already setting a standard for others to follow. As an example, we provide our customers with a diverse range of solutions:

  • Natural fibres – e.g. hemp
  • WarmCel – McCavana Timber Frame Homes are an authorized agent for this high performance material
  • Man-made SIP panels: the ultimate in terms of energy efficiency – definitely the material of the future.

Based upon our detailed product knowledge and installation experience, McCavana Timber Frame Homes can easily accommodate the most discerning customer requirements.
