In the mid 2000’s, CCG embarked on a journey of research and development into the applied use of ‘Off-Site’ Modern Methods of Construction. This journey led to the launch of CCG’s Timber Frame Division in 2007 which laterally became CCG ‘Off-Site’ Manufacturing (OSM) in 2010.
Extending to 130,000 square feet, with a manufacturing capability of up to 3000 buildings per annum, this semi-automated production hub offers the construction market complete flexibility in the delivery of timber systems, from a structural kit to fully enhanced closed panel solutions inclusive of insulation, internal wall linings, service zones, windows, doors and external claddings.
Customers are offered full flexibility in the specification of components and can take advantage of value engineering services.
CCG OSM can guarantee consistent quality, with greater tolerances determined by fewer panels, junctions and thermal bridges ensuring better air-tightness and improved thermal efficiency. With a factory controlled environment, the off-site process offers clients many benefits including speed of manufacture with a house capable of being produced every three hours, ultimately bringing efficiencies on-site with rapid site erection, a reduction in the use of materials and a focused use of site management resources ensuring right-first-time delivery.
CCG OSM is a unique asset that wholly addresses the sustainability aspirations of the Scottish and UK Government to deliver more sustainable solutions across the domestic and non-domestic construction scene.
The STA provides extensive advice on many items associated with the use of timber as a structural material and as a panelised system. CLICK HERE to download helpful guidance manuals on fire safety and fire resistence.
