We take pride in our reputation as a trusted and reliable timber frame manufacturer, and our long list of satisfied clients is a testament to our commitment to excellence. Since we first started trading in 1982, we have provided bespoke timber frame solutions for a wide range of projects, from small residential developments to large apartment buildings.


At Structural Timber Frame, we are able to manufacture external wall panels in either  89mm or 140mm thick timbers, and up to 3m in height and 3.6m in length.  The external wall panels are clad with OSB and a breather membrane to suit the thermal requirements of the structure.


Our floor panels are made from timber I-joists and decked with OSB or chipboard in our floor factories. For larger spans or more open-plan buildings, we use laminated beams to achieve longer spans while maintaining structural integrity. If required, we can also produce roof panels similar to our floor panels, although the majority of our roofs are made from our own prefabricated roof trusses.

    Manufacture FAQs

    Timber frame manufacturing is the specialised process of constructing timber frame designs, a prevalent method of construction in the UK. Once your designs are finalised, Structural Timber Frame, as specialists in offsite construction, commences the construction phase to bring your ideas to fruition.

    Our comprehensive approach covers every aspect of your project, whether big or small, ensuring utmost customer satisfaction with the timber frame structure. At Structural Timber Frame, we leverage our expertise and experience in the sector to manufacture various components, including wall panels, roof panels, open plan buildings, floor panels, and roof trusses, utilising advanced offsite construction techniques.

    As leading timber frame specialists, Structural Timber Frame boasts a highly skilled in-house team dedicated to timber frame manufacturing. With expertise spanning years and equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, we ensure the utmost precision and quality in every project.

    Our timber frame structures are constructed using closed panel systems and timber systems, ensuring efficiency and accuracy. Each component is meticulously measured and cut to fit, guaranteeing a perfect fit for your design. Whether you’re constructing residential or commercial buildings, our timber frame kits offer sturdy and reliable solutions tailored to your needs.

    The price of timber is often lower than other common building materials, such as brick. Timber is a relatively cheap building material and can be quite cost-effective during construction.

    It’s not only versatile, meaning it can be clad in almost any building material, but timber frame construction is often a quicker process. If your project is completed with a timber frame structure, you won’t only save on the cost of building materials, but also on the cost of labour.  

    The main advantage of timber frame construction is that the material is very easy to work with, allowing for more flexibility and complicated designs when using timber frame structures. Timber is also relatively cost-effective, reducing manufacturing costs and encouraging further investment in larger timber frame structures. 

    As one of the most eco-friendly building materials, timber is a popular choice for many. It is a non-toxic and organic material, with the lowest embodied C02 of any building material. 

    Different types of timber can be used for timber frame manufacture, including: 

    • Teak
    • Oak
    • Pine
    • Redwood
    • Cedar
    • Spruce

    Certain timbers are best suited to different structures, with softwoods like Cedar better suited to outdoor projects. Structural Timber Frame will inform you of the timber we are using for your project, and will work with you to bring your design to life.

    Timber frame manufacturing is the second stage in the Structural Timber Frame construction process. It takes your timber frame design and starts creating the components for it.

    You would need timber frame manufacture after your design has been finalised and both you and our design team are happy with the structure. Structural Timber Frame can then pass the design over to our manufacturing team.
