Following last year’s success at the BuildIt Awards, where Frame Technologies picked up the award for the Best Timber Frame, the family-run self-build specialists have been shortlisted again. This year, BuildIt have shortlisted Frame Technologies for two energy-efficient family home self-builds, one for Best Timber Frame, and one for Best Self-Build Project under £250,000.

The first project, Leadon Dale, uses an energy-efficient timber system to convert a steel-framed agricultural barn and concrete yard into a sensitively integrated residential dwelling. The second, Ashfield Cottage, is a three-bedroom cottage that integrates naturally with nearby Tudor houses.

The results will be announced at the BuildIt Awards Ceremony on 29th November at the Hilton Bankside, London.

Frame Technologies was the first timber frame specialist contractor to be independently audited for the Structural Timber Association’s Membership and Quality Standards Scheme, STA Assure – the company achieved Gold Status.
