ITFMA – Irish Timber Frame Manufacturers Association
Irish Timber Frame Manufacturers’ Association (ITFMA) member’s factory-manufactured timber frame guarantee the highest level of accuracy and quality and significantly simplifies on-site construction.
CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) was created in 1997 to improve health and safety standards across the UK.
CHAS was a key developer of the core criteria held in the Approved Code of Practice which supported the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (now recognized as CDM 2015) and is a founder member of SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement). This health and safety legislation was created to achieve the following aims:
- To simplify health and safety contractor assessment by standardising requirements.
- To allow companies to avoid undergoing health and safety assessments for every job.
Covering all aspects of office, factory and on-site operations, we have demonstrated that our processes and attitude to welfare are fit for purpose and thoroughly implemented.
Constructionline supplier assessment has been developed by central UK Government, in collaboration with leaders from the construction industry (including HSE, Equalities and Human Rights Commission and Constructing Excellence) to ensure you meet the right standards.
Constructionline standards are high – all of our suppliers are assessed to the current government and industry standards, including PAS 91:2013.
As a part of the process to achieve Constructionline membership, all registering suppliers are required to undergo a bespoke assessment process that aligns to the latest industry and government standards including PAS 91:2013.
PAS 91:2013 is the industry recognised pre-qualification questionnaire, developed to reduce the need for contractors, consultants and material suppliers within the construction industry to complete a variety of different pre-qualification questionnaires for different, and in some cases, the same clients. PAS 91 addresses the duplication issue for buyers and suppliers alike by providing a standard set of pre-qualification questions. So suppliers can simply copy and paste their standard PAS 91 answers when tendering for clients that have adopted it.
In 2011 TTFC was awarded the ISOVER Certificate for “One of the most outstanding Energy Efficient Construction Projects in Europe.
This highly efficient, air-tight dwelling was constructed in 2009.
The house has a total energy consumption of just 73.26 kWh/m2.yr. The key to achieving this is the TTFC Closed Panel Timber Frame System. The U-values achieved are as follows:
- Windows 1.40 W/m2K
- Walls 0.18 W/m2K
- Roof 0.15 W/m2K
- Air-tightness 0.85 m3/h.m2
