Building System Options


Through our expertise of various innovative building systems and technologies, we have earned the reputation of being at the forefront of building low energy homes in Dublin, Galway and throughout the West of Ireland.


Timber Frames

The timber frame system consists of structurally insulated wall units which can be clad with cement board and rendered, a block outer leaf can be incorporated if required by the client.

The timber frame structure is made to order and engineered off site. Once the timber frame arrives on site it can be constructed quickly, however it is important to remember that because it is made to order, there can be no changes made to the building at this stage.

The timber frame option is environmentally friendly and energy efficient

Masonry Block Build

This system is similar to a traditional masonry build using aerated blocks, external insulation is applied and the house can be rendered in a choice of colours.

Aerated blocks are made from light weight aerated concrete and provide excellent thermal performance. They are fire, frost and moisture resistant and have thermal resistance which standard blocks don’t have.

Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF)

This system is constructed using interlocking modular forms made of expanded polystyrene. The forms are locked together like lego and concrete is poured into the middle of the forms to create the structure.

Insulated Concrete Form benefits include; reduced air leaks, energy saving and high sound absorption.

This can be an excellent system on sites with limited access or storage/working area.
