DG Timber Solutions provides tailor-made packages to meet any specification. Whether you’re a main contractor, a developer looking for a long term supplier partnership or a self-builder looking for timber frame services, we can meet your requirements. For those that have existing and successful supply arrangements with roof truss manufacturers we are more than happy to integrate their work into one of the following packages:
Design, manufacture and construction
Design and manufacture
We use only specialist consultant structural engineers who understand the unique physical properties of timber and timber based materials, to realise straightforward and cost effective designs. Using the structural engineer’s appraisal, our in-house timber frame design team convert your architect’s drawings into construction and manufacturing details using the very latest “Wood Engine” Timber Frame design software from Mitek Industries, and MetsaWood UK’s “Finnframe” floor design software. We also use experienced external timber frame design consultants to supplement our in-house design output when required, and we are always happy to work in conjunction with other designers, architects and building control officers when projects present additional challenges.
Passivhaus construction standards, certified or not, and low U-values can easily be met where sustainability is fundamental to the project.
From our Northamptonshire operation we machine and assemble raw materials into high quality precision made wall and floor sections using CAD/CAM outputs from the very latest design software packages available. After approval of our general arrangement and section drawings by you and/or your architect, we have the capability of manufacturing walls and floor components for your project within just a few hours.
For roof trusses we work with specialist fabricators only, who as trusted long-term partners bring the same high standards of service and quality.
Visits to our manufacturing facility are welcome - please contact us if you wish to arrange this.
Our skilled erectors are fully certified and work to tight delivery schedules. These are set up to meet your build programme, to keep the use of cranes to a minimum and to try and ensure components are erected on the same day as delivery, rather than being stored on site for any period of time. Speed and quality of build are two of the many reasons for building in timber frame, but with 'just in time' deliveries and fewer 'wet' trades the logistics of construction are far simpler.
Whilst we are happy to undertake the erection of your timber frame structure, we are confident in both our design presentations and manufacturing quality for you or your sub-contractor to carry out the construction.We will provide the same level of support to you whoever erects the frame.
