Based in Girton near Cambridge, Baufritz uses exclusively timber construction to create ecological and healthy homes. Their vision is to build homes that combine an unrivalled level of comfort and luxury with an abundance of natural materials. Every Baufritz home is different as each one is individually designed through collaboration with one of their in-house architects and interior design specialists. Baufritz is committed to building homes that minimise adverse effects on both the environment and the well-being of those who occupy them. As timber is a renewable resource, it means that by owning a Baufritz house, nature’s cycle is preserved. The company supports national and European reforestation programmes and ensures that the environment is protected throughout the building process of each house. Baufritz does not use chemically treated building materials and makes regular tests to ensure they are not present. A family run company that has been building beautiful timber framed houses in Germany for more than a century, Baufritz has built a reputation for exceptional quality and reliability and has been building houses in the UK for over a decade. All houses are prefabricated at their state of the art factory in Erkheim, Germany and constructed using teams of highly skilled German craftsmen. The process is extremely efficient with the initial on site structure being completed in just one or two days. The fast design and purchasing period ensures swift completion within nine to twelve months, although timings will vary according to the clients’ specification. By comparison, a traditional house made of bricks and mortar would take approximately three times as long to build. www.baufritz.co.uk
