Timber Innovations is making an on-going impact in the construction and education sectors
Timber Innovations is increasingly making our mark in projects involving the education sector, and one we have been involved has given us enormous pleasure, not just for the end product of our contribution, but because it means so much to a local community.
As the end of one school year draws to a close, the start of a new one cannot come quick enough for the staff at a new childcare facility that opens for the people of Cwm, in Gwent, this September.
The ‘Buds to Blossoms – Flying Start’ childcare setting will be based at a modern, new premises, developed by Cardiff based Willis Construction, with the support of us at Timber Innovations.
Opting for timber frame means Peter can fulfil his goal of moving into dream self-build for Christmas!
Timber Innovations is delighted that work is underway on another project at the ground-breaking Graven Hill self-build development near Bicester.
This is the third home we are involved in of the first ten being built – one of which is approaching completion, and is SIPs construction, another we supplied the floor joists for, and the latest one, like the first, is a complete superstructure, but using timber frame as its method of construction.
“A home that’s a healthy environment for our family” – Punit’s glowing endorsement for timber frame!
City worker Punit Nathwani is finally ready to move into his dream home, and delighted he chose timber frame as his primary method of construction, and Timber Innovations to oversee his self-build project.
Punit’s new home is on the periphery of Stratford upon Avon, and the project has taken him three and a half years from first starting to look for the land, to the point where he can finally move in with his young family.
“It’s all very exciting,” he said.
Opportunity knocks, as rapid expansion means we’re now seeking to strengthen our team

It all means we are now looking to strengthen our team, and are recruiting for the following roles:
- Timber frame designer

- Engineered-floor designer
- Timber frame estimator
Another innovation, as dedicated team formed to meet increased demand for SIPs as a method of construction
Fast growing Solihull based timber frame company Timber Innovations has launched its latest specialist customer service, SIPsInnovations.
SIPsInnovations is reacting to increased customer demand for the energy efficient and environmentally friendly construction system that is becoming increasing popular with self-builders.
Timber Innovations now has a team of dedicated SIPs specialists to offer the best advice, and oversee a project from start to finish.
Jason’s vision for his oak-themed holiday home self-build is turned into reality
When the Spencer family acquired a plot of land in Happisburgh, on the Norfolk coast, they knew it would make for an ideal holiday home location.
But Jason Spencer was facing a dilemma. The cottage that stood on the plot was in need of urgent repair, and he spent many hours deciding on whether to do a refurbishment, or simply just knock the building down and start again.
Eventually he chose the latter option, and later this year his self-build project will be finished. Jason and his family are already looking forward to enjoying hours of fun there. And they will be doing it in a pristine, new holiday home, which has been designed and built with a nod of respect to the surrounding barns and cottages, built back in the 19th century.
“You wouldn’t think of it as a new build, even though it is,” said Jason, an electrical engineer, who lives in St Albans. “It’s going to look fantastic, and for that I have Timber Innovations to thank in a big way: they nailed it exactly as I wanted it, and I’m thrilled.”
Future is bright, as ambitious Timber Innovations announce new strategic partnership
Ambitious timber frame and self-build specialists Timber Innovations have signalled their intent to take the business to new levels by forming a strategic partnership with Wyckham Blackwell and the Keystone Group.
It is an obvious association for the Solihull based company, with Wyckham Blackwell specialists in timber engineering, and the Keystone Group the UK’s largest steel lintel manufacturer, and Europe’s fastest growing roof window manufacturer.
The agreement will focus on providing total timber engineering building solutions for customers, sharing manufacturing best practice and facilities, developing new and improved off site construction options, and financial and purchasing support.

An initial reservation, but now self-builder Charlie is a convert to the virtues of timber frame
When builder Charlie Franklin bought a plot of land in his home city, Bristol, he did it with the intent of a self-build project.
Indeed, everything was in place: planning permission was already granted, and a local architect had submitted drawings – drawings that included timber frame as part of the build. It was a ‘fait accompli’, and though he had initial reservations, Charlie is now delighted he followed it through, and very much a convert to the virtues of timber frame in a self-build.
