TG Escapes Ltd design, manufacture and install bespoke eco-buildings throughout the UK using timber frame offsite modular construction. They have provided over 800 buildings featuring classrooms, training centres, studios, chapels, sports pavilions, canteens and nurseries.
The use of timber and, where possible, low impact foundations, means that their buildings produce less C02 than using traditional materials. Using an airtight fabric, heat pumps, and other energy saving technology means that these buildings are net-zero in operation.
The use of biophilic design principles like natural materials, large windows and doors for natural light and easy access to the outdoors, creates a building that is good for the well-being of the occupants.
