SpaceStud’ is the name of the timber Stud Wall System that we design and manufacture here at Ochil. We managed to grab a few minutes with our Designer, Chris Hannah to ask him some questions about it.

Hi Chris, how long you have been working for Ochil Timber, and indeed, the wider construction industry?

Chris: I’ve been working in the industry as part of the team at Ochil Timber for 20 years.

In your experience of working with SpaceStud, what sets it apart from other Stud Wall solutions available?

Chris: SpaceStud can be supplied in bespoke depths. It is lightweight by comparison to other systems and can also handle added insulation if needed. It requires reduced application detailing too, for example, additional blocking for framework.

What are the practical benefits for your customers when they choose to work with SpaceStud?

Chris: It is a prefabricated double stud wall solution. It’s very lightweight and working with it makes it easy to leave space for services if suitable, so it reduces detailing work.

In terms of financial and economical savings, how does SpaceStud compare with other systems?

Chris: SpaceStud helps reduce labour costs on-site throughout the construction process. This is because it is quicker to assemble and requires less detailing work.

What do you do as part of your job/department that ensures your customers get the highest standard of service and quality?

Chris: We work closely with clients, builders, architects & engineers to offer advice on products, details & construction processes. We provide options & solutions that benefit them from a clear understanding of drawings, building processes, alternative designs to reduced time on site & labour costs.

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Chris: Presenting clients with solutions to near-impossible problems & seeing buildings come to life on-site from paper & computer designs.
