The use of timber-frame construction components in renovation projects is on the rise. In residential developments, they are used to expand or create new envelopes for existing buildings.
Machiels Building Solutions has undertaken many impressive renovation projects in recent years, upgrading the look and energy performance of existing buildings. This may involve fitting timber-frame components in front of the existing façade and/or installing a new timber-frame roof over (or in place of) the existing roof.
Timber-frame construction has two advantages here: the construction process is very fast, and residents can stay in their homes during the renovation.
