Conventional Timber Frame up to 7 stories This huge development consisted of town houses and large blocks of flats from 4 to 7 stories. This project was a huge success due to GNC’s extensive experience in medium rise timber frame (5-7 sories). With careful consultation we were able to get rid of any unneccesary and expensive details to the frame. Huge reductions in material costs were achieved through value engineering on this site.
