We have seen exponential growth in the use of timber frame in developments over the past couple of years. 

We’re proud to have installed 1000’s of timber frames throughout the South East. Over the past year we have been installing further afield throughout the UK with timber frame projects in Cambridge, Nottingham, Stoke on Trent and many more locations in the home counties..

It doesn’t end there. According to a recent report by Fact.MR, in the UK, the timber frame market is due to expand at a rate of over 7% through 2030. This is being backed up by the latest Climate Change Committee for the use of more wood in construction to serve as a form of carbon capture and storage. 

In January 2022 alone, OFP Timber Frame secured over 200 units for the installation of timber frames  across multiple new development sites. 

Breaking the mould of Timber Frame…

Timber frame doesn’t just have to be for new residential developments.  To give you an insight into some of our projects, we have worked on exclusive million pound properties in Mytchett, a wedding marquee in Ramsgate, a new art block for a school in Rochester, and a weights room for Canterbury Rugby Club, and recently we have secured a new hotel project in York with 188 bedrooms. 

We have been able to cope with this expansion by adding a few new faces to our already amazing design, production, and contracts teams. Plus additional designers, engineers and installers up and down the country. 

Alastair Narraway, Managing Director says,  ‘I’m so excited over this upcoming year. 2022 will mark 20 years of OFP and we’ve seen so much positive change in the industry since we started out. We’ve got such a great experienced team, and I’m so proud of the quality products that we offer to our customers. With timber frames at the forefront of sustainable and environmental construction, we feel we are in a great position now, and for the next 20 years ahead!’

Why would you choose timber frame?

One of the first reasons that comes to mind is that more and more people are recognising the environmental benefits that timber frame construction has to offer. Timber can dramatically reduce the carbon footprint of a new build. Timber is one of the most environmentally friendly building materials that there is, as it has the lowest energy consumption and the lowest carbon dioxide emissions. We will cover more on this in next month’s article.

Other reasons why people are choosing timber frame construction include its speed of building, sound insulation benefits, thermal insulation properties and cost savings.
