As 2021 draws to a close, we’re reflecting on a fantastic year for Frame Technologies. The end of the year was made sweeter as we were crowned winners in the ‘Best Timber Frame Home’ category at the Build It Awards 2021. We’re absolutely over the moon to have received such a brilliant recognition of the work we do and love.

Our nominated build for the Build It Awards, Gryphon House, came out top against six other nominations. It was judged on overall design, efficiency, innovation and how the owners’ needs were addressed. The judges commended us for the contribution that we made to the final result. We suggested design and engineering improvements for a beautifully detailed self-build home.

Homeowners of Gryphon House, Chris and Jenny Shepperd worked with us to achieve large connected internal spaces, cantilevered balconies and a feature curved staircase; all built to Passivhaus air-tightness standards. We manufactured a high-quality timber frame using our TechVantage™ S timber frame system, which is a super insulated breathable closed panel system. You can see a video case study of the winning build for the 2021 Build It Award’s ‘Best Timber Frame Home’ category on YouTube here or below.

As we move into 2022, we’re extremely excited to be busy planning our first ever timber frame show, The Secrets to Self-Build Success. The event is being held at the National Self Build & Renovation Centre (NSBRC) on Friday 11 March 2022.
