Timbeco element houses

THE CONSTRUCTION OF AN ELEMENT HOUSE Timbeco’s element houses are prefabricated as large panels in a factory to maximum completeness. The use of large panels means that the whole structure has been split into smaller parts and prebuilt in the factory. Lifting equipment is used to assemble the panels, thus significantly cutting on-site construction time. The large panels measure up to 12 m in length and 2.8 m in height (may be longer and higher if special transportation is used). We produce the structures of an element house always customised to the needs of the customer and in compliance with international building regulations (external and internal walls, roof, false ceiling, floor, balconies, terraces). We also offer a broad selection of standard structural solutions for all the parts of a building's structure.

TEN REASONS TO CHOOSE TIMBECO'S ELEMENT HOUSES

1. Comprehensive technical documentation

4. Houses can be mounted in any weather

The construction of a high-quality element house starts from the design. Not all manufacturers of element houses can boast having an in-house design unit and a 3D design system. Timbeco can. The advantage of having an in-house design unit is close cooperation and communication between the production unit, designers and builders – all of which translates into a high-quality end-result.

Timbeco packages the elements manufactured in the dry conditions of a factory in weatherproof plastic. Such weatherproof packaging is of a great benefit in the mounting phase of the building as the plastic wrapping means that buildings can also be mounted in winter and in rain.

The advantage of 3D design is primarily in that the production drawings also serve as mounting instructions. This makes the entire design easy to understand and comprehensive.

5. Experienced mounting team

2. Energy efficient joints Our elementhouse construction joints are optimized based on energy calculations with Passive House Planning Package (PHPP2007) simulation programme. This way we have eliminated cold bridges and increased the energy efficiency of our houses. The U-values of our constructions are calculated based on the real situation inside the stucture.

3. Extra rigid timber frame structure Unlike most element house manufacturers, we use diagonals and pins to add rigidity to timber frame structures. Diagonals and pins in the frames are made with the Hundegger K2 fully automated wood processing system. In addition to adding extra rigidity, the diagonals and pins improve the structure's load-bearing capacity in case of fire.

Just as manufacturing, mounting element houses requires knowledge and experience. Extensive experience, professional staff and direct communication between the mounting unit and the design and production units all contribute to the highquality end-result.

6. Revised complete solution The airtightness of a building'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 element house.

7. Factory-installed electrical accessories We offer a maximum level of completeness for the prefab panels manufactured at our plant. This includes the installation of rigid piping and wiring devices necessary for electrical wiring pursuant to the electrical wiring project prepared by the client. Compared to installation at the construction site, electrical piping installed at the plant saves considerable amount of construction time. And guarantees higher quality, since the cable management systems are carefully installed between wool layers without breaking the vapour control or wind barrier or pushing or pressing the wool layer, which would cause the deterioration of the structure’s insulation.

8. Loading in packages We introduced the package method to facilitate the loading and unloading of panels. Depending on the measurements of the vehicle, several panels are packed together and lifted as one package. In addition to saving loading time, this method allows for easy on-site storage of the panels for the customer, as there is no need to build frames to keep the panels upright. Panels may be packaged so as to take into account the transport capacity or their mounting order.

9. Flexible production We see our flexibility in production as one of our advantages over many other panel house manufacturers. This flexibility lies in the capacity of our plant and equipment to produce panels to the measurements and completeness required by the customer. In comparison, a production line for wood panels is capable of only producing panels with fixed dimensions, without taking into account the specifics of transportation or on -site conditions.

10. Production volume Our production volume is about ten houses in maximum completeness with all structures made of panels, per month. "One element house" here means a detached house with 120 m3 net floor space. In square meters, our production volume is 5000 m2 of panel structures per month. However, the volumes are largely dependent on the complexity of a project, being higher for more simple designs and lower where the design is more complicated. If necessary, we can increase the monthly volume to up to 8000 m2. It is our goal to increase the production volume of panel structures to 15,000 m2 a month by 2016.

EXTERNAL FINISHING Thanks to our manufacturing technology Timbeco element houses can have various external finishing solutions.

Log house appearance

Element house can look like a log house. We can use boarding that imitates the log wall. By adding log crosses to the corners and log details to terraces you get an energy efficient element house that looks exactly like a log house.

Stone finishing

Classical solid stone, facade surface stone or decorative stone cladding can be used. Decorative stone cladding is a thin slab pasted on a fibre cement board. In case of the classical solid stone cladding a wider foundation is constructed for the house. Timbeco facade element project for 13 apartment buildings in Finland

Plaster finishing

Most commonly used plaster systems can be applied onto fibre cement board that gives the facade a smooth and solid look. Firstly, board joints are treated and then all the layers are applied according to the plaster system instructions.

Wooden board finishing

Wood is very easy to process and therefore gives endless options for external finishing. Many different profiles, tree species and treatments of wood can be used. Boarding can be thermo-treated, coloured, stained etc. Vertical, horizontal as well as diagonal boarding is possible. Timbeco facade element project for 12 apartment buildings in Finland

ENERGY EFFICIENCY Insulation materials

Air and vapour barrier systems

Only high quality and low λ-value insulation materials are used. Materials are placed carefully into elements in dry conditions that guarantees the calculated U-value of the constructions.

Airtightness is an important factor of an energy efficient house. We ensure airtightness by using only certified air and vapour barrier systems that guarantees the sufficient performance for decades.

Taping up the vapour barrier paper

Special tapes are used to seal all joints and bushings in the air and vapour barrier to ensure good airtightness. Natural latex-based glue is used to fasten the air and vapour barrier to concrete and timber.

Taping up the feedthrough

FIRE RESISTANCE (EI 60/90 minutes) It is often believed that wooden houses are not as fire resistant as other types of houses. But there are various methods how to make wooden constructions just as fireproof as stone house. The fire resistance classes and requirements of buildings are determined in the Building Act and have to be achieved no matter what the construction material is. Lower fire resistance classes are very easy to achieve with timber constructions and they often have big advantage in front of other constructions. For example a steel construction loses its strength very quickly when the temperature rises in a fire while timber burns for a long time creating a protective char layer on its surface before it looses its carrying capacity. If certified materials are used, chosen carefully, built and treated according to producer’s instructions, then timber constructions can achieve high fire resistance and they are just as safe as any other types of houses.

Overlay of the joint between the roof and wall

Fireproof boards We use gypsum and cement boards to protect timber constructions from fire. Many layers can be used to meet high fire resistance requirements.

Certified fire-resistant paints and impregnation We use the fire-resistant paints and certified fire-resistant impregnation of various manufacturers (Holz Prof, Teknos, Dricon etc.) in order to improve the fire resistance of wooden structures.

Fireproof insulation materials Class A insulation materials are used that are fireproof and protect timber from fire.

Strengthening the structure Diagonals and pins also help the structure better preserve its strength and rigidity in case of fire.

Fireproof windows and doors Subject to the customer's wishes and project requirements, we also provide fireproof doors and windows in cooperation with our partners. Fireproof doors are filled with non-combustible insulation. Locks and hinges are fire-tested and keep the door tightly shut in case of a fire.

Saving time

Saving money

Standard house designs meeting the requirements of the reseller's market or the developer's development project help provide the end consumer well-designed architectural and structural solutions, significantly reducing the efforts of the customer in their search for a house and time to purchase decision.

Since producing standardized houses is much faster for the manufacturer, the final price is also significantly lower. As a rule, the structural design of a house takes up one third of the production process. The design phase takes virtually no time for standard houses.

In the same vein, for the house manufacturer, the availability of standard house designs means faster production output since the time-consuming structural design phase has already been completed. A house can be produced in a significantly shorter time-span.

Moreover, adjusting production equipment takes significantly less time. Ultimately, the reseller or developer will be able to receive standardized houses at a good price with fast delivery.

Success story - Lesja standard house design

In cooperation with a Norwegian architect, Timbeco developed standard designs for Norwegian-type log houses. Styled to fit in the Norwegian mountain regions, reasonably priced, expediently delivered, featuring a great number of modifications, these standard designs soon gained popularity in WestNorwegian holiday centres and ski resorts. To date, Timbeco has produced over 60 Lesja houses with various modifications.

FACTORY PRODUCTION VS ON-SITE CONSTRUCTION It is often believed that on-site construction is more costefficient that ordering structures in maximum completeness from a factory. Below is a comparison of building the complete weatherproof insulated shell of a private home in the factory and on-site.

A weatherproof insulated shell means painted exterior lining, insulated exterior walls, interior walls, false ceiling, roof with roofing materials, installed doors and windows.
