When it comes time to build your own home we never think about different construction options. So with this in mind, why do we consistently turn to double brick?

Thompson Sustainable Homes offer a modern alternative. It’s called Lightweight or Intergated Construction; structural framed houses clad externally for aesthetics and weather proofing.

Ian Holloway explains the advantages of this building method. It’s more than twice as fast to erect, provides a larger living space due to it’s thinner wall construction and is just a fraction of the cost for typical house footings.

It’s a sustainable build too. There’s les landfill if any, reduced need for retaining, less concrete and much less construction waste. 

But there’s more savings. There’s less rent or mortgage to pay with the faster build time, engineer savings, civil work savings and of course the house running cost savings.
