Timber framed construction (Commercial and residential)
Timber decking (Commercial and residential)

Timber frame construction and the principles of timber frame construction are very similar, in many regards, to the principles of light steel frame construction. Timber framing (including timber decking) is a highly specialised method of construction world wide and has become very popular in Southern Africa as well.

Timber framed construction has been the preferred method of building in the USA and many parts of Europe for hundreds of years and, as a result, they have perfected this method.
