services for architects
Fleming Homes provides a wide range of services for architects, and we take great pride in our many timber frame collaborations with architects around the UK. Depending on your needs, we can support your work on the engineering, regulatory or technical specification side, and provide technical and construction drawings where required. We also streamline the build process by providing expert coordination between you, your client and contractors.
Timber frame construction expertise
We can meet all your front-end technical needs for timber frame, including SAP calculations, u-value calculations, engineering details, timber member sizes, external joinery details, giving you more time to concentrate on design. See a sample construction design.
Our engineers provide full certification of the structural timber frame, detailing all the required line and point load, and timber frame structural calculations. In certain regions, we can provide full engineering, including engineering design for your project’s foundations. In Scotland, our engineering certification can be used as part of the SER engineers’ process, or we can provide full SER engineering for the project.
Technical design & specification
Our in-house team are highly experienced construction designers used to realising demanding architect briefs to a high standard of detail and precision. Our full specification is highly flexible, and many architects use it as a blueprint and adapt it to their needs. Alternatively, you can provide your own drawings and specification, or instruct us to develop one.
Whichever way to prefer to work, we can help you streamline the process and deliver cost savings to your client.
We can take this on for you as a service, or work alongside you – whichever you prefer.
