Simon Orrells, managing director of timber frame manufacturer Frame Wise, explains how the company’s Wise Wall system is taking energy efficiency to a new level.

Frame Wise has been at the forefront of developing Fabric First, the concept that was founded on the principle of constructing the most airtight building envelope possible, with minimal thermal bridging, thus reducing heat loss and creating an energy-efficient building without the need for bolt-on renewable technologies.

In developing Wise Wall, our wall system series, we found it was possible to reduce thermal conductivity with relatively minor changes to construction methods at little or no extra build cost.
