Prefabricated Buildings & Building Components

This section focuses on the use of timber frame construction for domestic and commercial buildings. The complete range of timber framing components is included, covering traditional sawn oak frames to highly engineered laminated framings (SIPS) and supporting structures. The section lists suppliers and erectors, designers, architects and material suppliers. This is an important area because increasing interest is being shown in renewable sources of material and the excellent insulation properties of this form of construction.

This section is dedicated to two forms of timber frame buildings, Traditional reproduction style post and beam structures based on English 16th Century vernacular architecture; and structural insulated panel structures (SIPS) using a variety of materials including timber to provide structural strength.

Barn Conversions - Government Guidance on PPG7, PPG11 and PPG13

Click here for further information on barn conversions and the effect of Government Guidance via PPG7, PPG11, PPG13 and PPG15. Conversion of rural farm buildings with architectural merit into dwellings is not generally favoured!

Traditional timber framed structures

These are frequently based on English 16th Century vernacular architecture. An increasing number of specialist producers are catering for this market with hardwood and softwood designs. Two categories have been set aside for these producers as shown above.

a) Further information about traditionally designed Sawn Oak Framed Buildings is available here.

b) Further information about the more modern architectural form of Softwood Framed Buildings (Post & Beam) is available from the suppliers we list. Tanalised softwood timber will last very many years and can be as attractive as hardwod post and beam stuctures..
