Following a lengthy study, the Thomas Armstrong Group have identified a need for an in-house timber frame semi-automated manufacturing facility in order to satisfy the needs of Architects, Housing Associations, House Builders, Commercial Developers and the Self Build Market throughout the U.K. Timber Frame is now the fastest growing method of construction in the U.K. accounting for almost 25% of all new housing. Its environmental and overall sustainability credentials are second to none. Timber Frame also delivers a high build quality, a faster and more efficient construction process and the opportunity to be more creative in design. The Company have recently taken on the services of Mr Colin Stirling, a well known figure in the Irish Timber Frame Industry. His considerable knowledge and expertise will prove invaluable in developing the Timber Engineering Sector of Thomas Armstrong Ltd in the coming years. The Company have invested almost half a million in state of the art machinery suitable for producing quality timber frame panels. Their first project is nearing completion, a 22 house development for Home Housing Association at Victory Crescent, Maryport, Cumbria. The clients remit demanded that the product achieve Code Level 3 for Sustainable Houses, this has been exceeded by some degree and the client and Main Contractor (Thomas Armstrong (Construction) Ltd) are delighted with the product and service provided.
