A range of high-speed timber-frame build solutions
At Walker Timber Engineering we design, manufacture and supply all timber frame components entirely from our own in-house resources. Because we control all aspects of production, we can deliver consistent production quality and a fully managed production and delivery service for our clients, at scale. We can also manage the on-site erection of the frames we supply.
- Our timber frame products meet MHCLG MMC Category 2 criteria.
- Our timber-frame technology delivers more accurately finished structures, provides acoustic insulation performance that surpasses regulations, and offers exceptional air-tightness.
- Our off-site timber frame production process delivers significant pre-manufactured value (PMV). This translates into large waste savings and many other environmental benefits
ThermaTech factory pre insulated wall system offers savings in waste, time and site processes. This option is available for external walls and benefits from factory fitted quality and higher levels of assured fabric performance.
ThermaTech conforms with the MHCLG Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) definition framework as a Category 2 primary structural system.
As early pioneers of off-site construction, we have over 50 years of experience in timber frame manufacturing. We produced our first factory-built house back in 1969, and now have capacity to manufacture in excess of 8,000 units per annum from three strategically located UK factories.
Key Benefits versus Masonry Construction
- Much improved speed of build.
- Significant reductions in preliminary costs.
- Factory controlled structural build quality.
- Factory controlled quality of workmanship.
- Highly sustainable materials with minimal carbon impact.
- Overcomes on-site skill and labour shortages.
