Building your timber frame or SIPs home

Transforming your architectural plans to help you build an energy-efficient home. Once your design is complete you’ll be ready to move to the manufacturing stage.

Experienced Timber frame & SIPs builders

All our homes are pre-fabricated build systems which is an offsite method of construction. Offsite construction means a large proportion of the components are built in a controlled factory environment, and then delivered and assembled at site. This makes them an efficient way to build a warm and comfortable home. Here’s why:

  • Offsite construction is less susceptible to weather delays (compared to masonry construction)
  • Build accuracy with components built to a detailed plan
  • Less on-site waste – as your structure arrives ready to be assembled
  • Lower on-site labour costs and improved health and safety with a large proportion of work carried out offsite

Quality assurance and peace of mind

As part of the Kingspan group, our timber frame and SIPs build systems bring together insulation technology and building solutions to maximise construction efficiency. You’ll be pleased to know that all our build systems are built to a quality-assured standard through our integrated management systems with the following ISO certifications:

  • ISO 9001 Quality Management
  • ISO 14001 Environmental Management
  • ISO 37301 Compliance Management
  • ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management

This means when you build a Potton home you can have peace of mind that our build systems meet and exceed relevant industry standards and building regulations requirements.

Potton Live Build Generic2

Being part of a global manufacturer of building components we make it a priority to ensure our products meet and exceed regulatory requirements. We do this by investing in tests and certification through the BBA (British Board of Agrément), to assess our building systems for health and safety, thermal and structural performance, and fire safety.

We also make sure that every home constructed using a timber system supplied by Potton benefits from a set of structural calculations, in accordance with British and European Standards and relevant third-party certifications.

Find out more about the manufacture and build of your frame

When you build a Potton home we become the single point of contractual responsibility for the design, manufacture, and construction of your superstructure.

Step 1 - Once your design is ready, we’ll prepare your technical information to manufacture your frame, taking care of building regulations and engineering requirements.

Step 2 - While your frame is being manufactured you’ll be assigned a contracts manager. They will assist you in preparing for the build and oversee the erection of your superstructure

Step 3 – Deliver and erect your frame! We’ll deliver your frame to site, where a team of experienced STA approved erectors will build the superstructure supported by your contracts manager.

Protect your home from the elements with our Weathertight Package

Move your project forward efficiently and eliminate the need to coordinate additional independent trades for this part of the build. Let us take care of:

  • Roofing membrane, batten & tiles, slates or other covering
  • Roofline components (fascia, soffit & barge)
  • Fitting of rigid insulation to sloping/vaulted areas where these are present in your house design
  • A waterproof membrane to flat roof areas (or roof areas that aren’t traditionally tiled)
  • VELUX® rooflights including flashings
  • External windows and doors

Quality assured build systems

Our Kingspan ULTIMA and Kingspan TEK® build systems utilise rigid insulation products from Kingspan Insulation. All our timber frame systems can be described as closed panel systems.
