With a shortage of housing in the United Kingdom and increased environmental awareness, timber framed buildings are the perfect solution to help people on both counts. Wood has the lowest energy consumption and the lowest CO2 emissions of any commonly used building material, resulting in a boost for the environment and warm, attractive homes for those who chose to use the material.

The creation of timber framed housing can help alleviate the lack of housing across the country. With worries about green belt land being lost due to changes in planning permission, timber framed buildings can help maintain the beauty of rural countryside whilst giving people places to live.

It is common for homes to be made from timber in other countries such as the United States and across Europe, but the trend has never really taken off in the UK. Many people think of timber framed buildings as being drafty or badly made, but with modern construction methods and high grade wood, occupants can enjoy well constructed houses which are comparable and possibly surpass the comfort levels which people are used to in brick buildings.

Pure buildings ensure that the timber they use is ethically sourced, giving users the best construction and peace of mind. In addition to the sustainable construction methods, Pure Buildings only use environmentally sustainable materials from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified sources and plant four trees for every one which is felled.

Pure Buildings have being producing high quality, cost effective buildings for 10 years. In this time they have built over 350 educational, public sector, lodge, sporting, community and residential buildings throughout the UK.

In addition to their high quality buildings, Pure Buildings are also accredited by Exor to ensure supply chain compliance and are members of the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS).
