Stages of a Glenville Timberwrights Project
This is the stage in which we meet you! We have our preliminary meetings usually at our office location in Baraboo, WI. We always like to introduce new clients to our Glenville Timberwrights team; which most times includes, but not limited to, the Owner, Construction Manager, and In-House Designer. During this meeting, we will discuss the scope of the project, the process in which we do things, and if need be; take a tour of our Model Home just 5 minutes away. We also can give you a tour of our offices (which incorporates timber frame construction) and our work shop that is attached to our main office building.
Construction Document Stage:
In this stage, our designer will be hard at work creating construction drawings (CD's) for the clients and general contractors. A typical set of CD's will include a foundation plan with details, detailed floor plans, elevations, wall sections, building sections, as well as interior perspective views and exterior views. If need be, our designer can also produce high quality renders in which examples are shown below.
Renders Performed with the Computer Software Revit:
Our designer works in the BIM computer software of Revit. This software is the most widely used BIM software in the construction industry. With the use of this software our designer can import a large variety of different drawing files, including .dwg files, .skp files, .ifc files, .dxf files, etc. This gives our designer the ability to work with virtually any other engineer or architect on a specific project.
Construction/Erection of Frame Stage:
This is the stage in which we arrive on site and begin to erect the timber frame. Before we arrive on site, everything is Pre-fitted and Pre-assembled in our shop to ensure the timber frame raising goes smoothly and without any problems. If your particular project has a SIPS panel package with the timber frame; we will install these panels as well. Once the timber frame and SIPS panels are raised and installed, the General Contractor can take over at this time to finish the job. In the video above, it shows a time lapse video of a frame being raised in northern WI. In this video, our crew is working alongside the GC's crew as they finish up their conventional roof truss system. This is an example of a hybrid home; in which the great room is timber framed, but the rest of the house is built with the conventional framing method.
The Finished Project Stage:
This is the stage in which the project has come full circle and is now completed and ready to be utilized.
