Our Company

Established in 2015, FastHouse designs, manufactures and installs Hybrid and Closed Panel timber frame systems. We serve the UK, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Systems

At FastHouse we offer three varying offsite timber frame panel systems: The Closed Panel System, Hybrid Panel System and Open Panel System. So, we have something appropriate for every requirement, build and budget.

Process

Following precisely engineered plans, our automated machines manufacture a high quality, reliable product that is easy to install on-site and is guaranteed to fit first time.

Technical

With our in-factory processes, FastHouse can ensure all safety, thermal and acoustic building requirements are met, if not exceeded.

Recent Projects

After being established for a number of years, we have gained quite the portfolio of work, gaining experience in building timber frames used in projects for various sectors.

Process

Manufacture

We drive quality, accuracy and ensure continuous improvement through ongoing defect inspection and monitoring of dimensional tolerances. Our seamless integration between design and manufacturing via CAD-CAM technology, means the transition between phases can be done smoothly.

Our state-of-the-art framing lines for wall production guarantees precision and safety in the manufacture of frame works. The latest CNC technology ensures consistent high quality.

Under the installation process you can read about the FastHouse timber frame levelling system and mechanical fixing brackets and learn how these components contribute to a fast and accurate assembly.

Manufacturing procedures

  1. Traceability on all materials used
  2. Quality mark added to all completed panels
  3. All timber frame components are marked for correct orientation and positioning during the on-site simple erection process.
  4. Optimisation software minimises waste
  5. Timber grading/stamping done visually or by machine
  6. ISO 9001 – consistently meeting customer and regulatory requirements
  7. State of the art fully automated CNC Machines and saws cut all timber/sheeting for accuracy and repeatability
  8. Two fully automated CAM enabled framing machines at the framing stations build complex assemblies and precise element sheeting:
    • Top & bottom plates are positioned at stops and automatically tensioned
    • Studs are automatically positioned, tensioned and secured
  9. Three multifunction bridges for nailing/stapling, sawing, trimming and drilling. This fully automated process achieves a uniformly precise design on all elements.
