Semi-detached house construction
We manufacture high-quality custom made prefabricated timber frame elements for the construction of semi-detached houses.
We manufacture prefabricated elements needed for the construction of a semi-detached house based on the client’s design and meeting the construction rules and regulations of Norway (TEK10), Sweden (EUROCODE-5), Finland (RYL, RT catalogues, EUROCODE-5) and UK.
Construction of a semi-detached house from prefabricated elements means higher quality and is faster and thus also cheaper than the construction of a semi-detached house on the construction site or construction of a semi-detached house from concrete.
We also provide the installation of prefabricated elements meant for the construction of semi-detached houses.
We work with big contractors (NCC, Peab, SRV), big and small construction companies and developers. Our clients value us for the high level of our structural design but also for the high quality of our prefabricated elements and for the professional service.
Advantages of having a semi-detached house built by Timbeco
Semi-detached house production quality
ISO 9001:2008 quality – Timbeco’s quality management is based on the ISO 9001:2008 international quality management standard.
We provide semi-detached houses with a CE marking – we can provide semi-detached houses manufactured by us with a CE marking which proves that the structures meet the health, safety and environmental protection requirements of the European Union.
Semi-detached house design
Cost-effective construction details – if needed, our engineers provide cost-effective construction details for your semi-detached house design. The constructions speed up the manufacturing process and make the installation of the semi-detached house easier, helping save money on the construction of the semi-detached house.
Energy efficient junctions – the junction details of semi-detached houses made by us have been optimised with the special-purpose Therm software system. This is how we eliminate the thermal bridges of the semi-detached house and increase energy efficiency.
Detailed technical documentation for the semi-detached house – as a result of the design process, the client will get detailed and thorough technical documentation for the semi-detached house. Since we use easily understandable 3D design software to design semi-detached houses, it ensures greater accuracy. It also gives us the chance to provide the client with easily understandable technical solutions and enables to produce easy to read installation manuals. See a sample design here.
Manufacturing of prefabricated elements for semi-detached houses
Extra rigid prefabricated elements – unlike most other manufacturers of prefab elements, we use diagonals and tenons in order to give our prefabricated elements extra rigidity. Diagonals and tenons are installed by the fully automated Hundegger K2 wood processing centre.
Flexible manufacturing – we consider flexibility in manufacturing one of our advantages compared to our competitors. Our equipment does not limit the width, height, thickness or completeness of the prefabricated elements manufactured by us. In comparison, a production line for prefabricated elements is capable of only making prefabricated elements with fixed dimensions, without taking into account the specifics of transportation or on-site conditions.
Maximum level of completeness of prefabricated elements – if the client has the needed drawings, we will install vent pipes and electrical accessories into prefabricated elements. We also install windows with finishing and provide internal and external finishing, etc. Read more on the prefabricated walls page.
Fire resistance – in order to increase fire resistance, we use suitable building boards (plaster boards, cement boards) in the prefabricated elements of semi-detached houses which prevent the spreading of fire into the prefabricated elements. We also use fire resistant paints and impregnation in the prefabricated elements of semi-detached houses.
Transport of prefabricated elements for semi-detached houses
Weatherproof packaging – we pack the prefabricated elements needed for the construction of a semi-detached house in a weatherproof plastic. Thanks to high-quality packaging, the prefabricated elements kept on the construction site will not need additional protection for up to three weeks.
Transport depending on the client’s needs – we provide transport of prefabricated elements in the order of the construction of the semi-detached house. However, the transport of prefabricated elements can be arranged in an order ensuring minimal transport costs.
Installation of semi-detached house
Installation team with experience – just like manufacturing of prefabricated elements for the construction of a semi-detached house, installation of a semi-detached house requires knowledge and experience. The experience and professional employees of Timbeco’s installation team and their direct communication with the design and manufacturing units help to create a high-quality end result.
Installation in any weather – Thanks to the weatherproof packaging, prefabricated elements for the construction of a semi-detached house may be installed in any weather.
Airtight integrated solution – the airtightness of a semi-detached house’s structure is demonstrated by pressure tests. Timbeco stands out among other manufacturers in that Timbeco’s structural solutions are tested with pressure tests. We use the Blower Door test where overpressure is created within the building and air exchange is measured. Such pressure tests provide us feedback about the effectiveness of the structural solution. They also assure the customer of the quality of the semi-detached house.
