Design Flexibility &


Couple this with Scotframe’s expertise & track record and the sky really is the limit when it comes to design of buildings that tick all the boxes on your clients’ wish lists. Key to achieving this extraordinary performance is that the insulation is injected in off-site, quality-controlled factory conditions. The foam expands into every nook and cranny, providing a best-in-class BR443 U-value correction factor of zero. As well as excellent thermal insulation performance, details are available to minimise thermal bridging and give excellent airtight fabric levels. The Scotframe Val-U-Therm®


building


system was originally launched in 2011 and has been used in over 8,500 homes with an excellent track record. A UK market leader in full timber frame packages for new housing and commercial projects, Scotframe exclusively offers the Val-U-Therm PLUS® closed panel building system. This is accepted by financial institutions, NHBC, Premier Guarantee and Checkmate – the panels have a 60-year minimum service life. Because it’s a hybrid of the best aspects of


SIPS and timber frame technology, coupled with the latest advances in material science, it offers much flexibility and innovation in the design and build process. The unique combination of design opportunities includes: • Can be used for walls, roofs and floors • All types of design and architecture, even curved walls and roofs


• Can be thermally engineered to perform as an optimum combination


• Unrestricted elevational treatments – brick, stone, render, cladding, tile, timber, etc.


• All interior finishes and treatments • Large-span roofs with vaulted ceilings, if required


• Dramatic open-plan layouts offering lifestyle flexibility


• Extensive glazed features and uninterrupted roof-space living areas


• BBA accredited building system, including in-fill panels in other building systems Couple this with its exceptional thermal performance and sustainability, Val-U- Therm PLUS®


cost-effective way for architects to hit energy efficiency, air permeability and other environmental targets. It offers a fit-and- forget, future-proof solution, whatever level of environmental specifications are required – for example, ‘A’ rated Energy Performance Certificates, PassivHaus or the highest levels of energy saving and carbon neutrality. The patented Val-U-Therm PLUS®


Rocking Horse Nursery at the University of Aberdeen, which caters for 78 pre-school children. achieved an air tightness of 0.475 ACH. Hence Scotframe homes and buildings are


is


also inherently sustainable due to careful sourcing of raw materials with a minimal environmental impact. Scotframe’s timber is sourced from FSC and PEFC sustainably managed forests and the insulation in Val-U- Therm PLUS®


warm and draught-proof in winter, cool and well ventilated in summer, healthy for all the family and enjoy remarkably low energy bills. Scotframe Val-U-Therm PLUS®


allows the


construction of typical family homes that can cost less than £95 a year to heat. The great news is that building to these


panels is based on renewable


vegetable oil, has zero ozone depletion potential and is CFC, HFC and HCFC-free with a Global Warming Potential of less than 5. This means it has a BRE Green Guide A/A+ Rating – the same as straw bales or sheep wool yet is hydrophobic offering flood mitigation. From the UK’s first PassivHaus for rent


(which won a Green Apple Award) to examples that significantly exceed the PassivHaus standard, Scotframe has been leading the way using Val-U-Therm® technology in energy efficient building for many years. The Maryville PassivHaus delivered a total primary energy demand of 69 kWh/m2


a


(exceeding the PassivHaus requirement of 120 kWh/m2


provides a straightforward and a). This ‘Fabric First’ approach is also suitable for commercial buildings – the 01467 624 440 www.scotframe.co.uk


high standards is not necessarily more expensive or time consuming using Scotframe Val-U-Therm PLUS®


. Edinburgh Napier


University compared the cost per square metre of superstructure using 10 different building systems. Scotframe Val-U-Therm®


cost £1092 when


built to PassivHaus standards, while the other nine systems ranged from £711 to £1138 when built only to existing Building Regulations. It took 65 days to build a Scotframe home to PassivHaus standards; the other 26 homes ranged from 49 to 126 days to build, again only to Building Regulations. So, if you are looking to design a dream


home or superlative building – think Scotframe Val-U-Therm PLUS®
