TIMBER frame specialist Scotframe has invested in a new showroom and sales office in Cumbernauld.
The facility, which has been created in response to growing demand for timber homes, offers self-builders the chance to meet the Scotframe sales team face-to-face, discuss the timber kits available, and consider finishing touches.
Based at Westfield North Courtyard, the showroom features touchscreen technology and design software, which customers can use to choose their house style and look at potential layouts, change the configuration of rooms, and customise finishings to suit their requirements.
Customers will also have the opportunity to to see Scotframe’s ‘fabric first’ approach to construction, including how its Valutherm+ system works to help deliver homes that are ‘warm, draught-proof, comfortable and sustainable’, the firm explained.
Self-builders and trade customers can also research extra details of their timber frame build, such as door sets, windows and architraves.
Headquartered in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, Scotframe also has showrooms in Inverness and Dundee. The company has expanded its presence into the south with a showroom and sales office at the National Self Build and Renovation Centre (NSBRC) in Swindon, England.
Robert Beagley, business development manager, south and west Scotland, said, “Our new showroom in Cumbernauld is a real milestone as we look to increase Scotframe’s presence across Scotland. For us, it’s all about providing our self-build customers access to experts with years of experience in an environment where they can see timber kit components first hand, learn how they work and why they are such an attractive and sustainable option.
“The Cumbernauld site is a first-class facility and will add value to self-builders across Central Scotland. We look forward to helping people with their self-build journey, answer their questions and help them achieve their dream home.”
Ross Baxter, MD of Scotframe, added, “At Scotframe we pride ourselves on providing a top-quality product. We are confident our new Cumbernauld showroom will allow our customers access to the expert support they need for their self-build project.
“With almost 80% of new homes in Scotland built using timber frame, it’s clear Scotframe has an important role to play in supporting new customers. The showroom in Cumbernauld gives us another shop window and opportunity to support self-builders while also providing opportunities for other local trades in the area.”
