Timber frame buildings can be designed into anything making it as modern and flexible as steel or concrete but the use of wood is not hidden but structural. Offering warmth and attractiveness of the exposed wood with a host of benefits that empower commercial construction in durability, design flexibility, and environmental friendliness. Built with strong mortise and tenon joints, they are capable of withstanding extreme amounts of pressure and have innate fire resistance. In addition to these practical benefits, a timber frame structure is an eye-catching conversation piece that will play a memorable part of your business in the years to come.
