Barratt buys timber frame specialist

Barratt Developments has bought one of the UK’s largest timber frame manufacturers.

Selkirk, Scotland based Oregon Timber Frame Limited is currently one of Barratt’s key timber frame suppliers.
Barratt has a target of building at least 20% of its homes using an element of offsite construction, including timber frame, by 2020.

Over the last three years the firm has built 5,500 homes using timber frame construction.

Oregon Timber Frame currently employs 150 staff at its Selkirk base. Barratt said it planned to expand Oregon in line with its aim to use more timber frame construction in its properties.

“We want to build more high quality homes using timber frames and bringing Oregon on board will help us to do that,” said Mr McLeod.
