Speedy delivery wins contract

Business | Press | News

Kestrel Timber Frame – the Market Deeping (near Peterborough) based manufacturer of timber frames for buildings – has helped property developer Benton Homes to complete a development of 17 flats in Lincoln city centre in under 7 months.

Benton Homes selected Kestrel Timber Frame for its ability to produce, deliver and erect the timber frames within a specified time-scale. The two- and three-storey building houses 17 flats and has been built on the site of a former laundry at the corner of Sincil Bank and Portland Street in Lincoln city centre.

Ben Fordham of Benton Homes said: “Kestrel Timber Frame was able to deliver a quality product within our set time constraints – the ability to deliver on time was a key factor in the decision making process.

“Being able to get properties completed and on the market as quickly as possible without losing quality is vital in today’s market. Building using timber frames saves time compared with other, more traditional building methods and using Kestrel Timber Frame allowed us to save even more time.”

Kestrel designs the frames based on building drawings supplied by its customers. They are then manufactured by Kestrel in its factory at Market Deeping before its highly experienced teams deliver the frames to site and swiftly erect them. This makes it possible for builders to construct complete homes in a fraction of the time required by conventional construction techniques.

Paul Adams of Kestrel said: “We were delighted that Benton Homes selected Kestrel Timber Frame. Reducing the time it takes to complete a building project is always important for property developers and working with timber frames is becoming an increasingly popular way of building more quickly at very high standards of quality.

“At Kestrel, our purpose-built factory allows us to produce high quality timber frames and our dedicated staff keep turn-around times to a minimum both in the factory and on building sites.”

As well as speed of construction, timber frames offer other advantages. For example, the foundations needed for timber frame buildings are often less extensive – and less expensive – than those required for buildings built entirely with traditional bricks and blocks. Timber frames also make it easier to meet the increasingly strict legal requirements for energy efficiency in buildings – a benefit not just for the builder but also for the people who subsequently occupy the property.

Building using timber frames is more environmentally friendly than using more traditional methods. All of Kestrel’s timber is obtained from guaranteed sustainable forest sources, adding to the environmental benefits of this method of construction.
