OFP Timber Framed Homes Company Profile

OFP Timber Framed Houses is a leading designer and manufacturer of superior quality, timber frame structures. The company offers a complete supply and erect service for clients throughout the UK, such as housing associations, private developers, self-builders and specialist builders.

OFP is a privately owned company which operates predominantly within the South East of England. The company’s key priority is to ensure that every element of the project, from the initial enquiry through to engineering and design stages, then ultimately at the final build, is fully overseen to ensure a smooth, trouble free project which is completed on-time and within budget.

Services

OFP offers a flexible range of services which are tailored around individual requirements. There is an excellent choice of design styles to choose from, as well as a selection of timber fabrication systems. Services include structural engineering, design and pre-insulated panels which are developed to minimise build times on-site. Once the timber structure has been manufactured, a series of quality control checks are carried out and then the structure is delivered to the site and a range of professional on-site services are available including erection, construction and crane services. All design work is carried out by skilled designers who utilise innovative CAD technology and the design and manufacturing processes are covered by the UKTFA’s Q-Mark accreditation and independent quality assurance scheme TRADA. The build stages are carried out by CSCS/CPCS accredited installers. A dedicated team member will be appointed for each individual element of the build and will be available to provide support at any time with maximum efficiency.

Timber Framed Houses

Timber framed houses are becoming an extremely popular choice for builders and architects as they offer substantial environmental benefits and can achieve maximum credits for dwelling emission rates and building fabric details in compliance with the Code for Sustainable Homes. OFP timber framed homes can provide a variety of alternative insulation solutions which offer exceptional U-Values and therefore improves thermal performance. Timber frame houses are built off-site; this enables fast build times on-site compared with brick and block construction. Timber frame constructions include open frame, modular systems, external, internal and party walls, trusses and flat roof systems.

Timber Construction

The dedicated design team will assess all the client’s requirements, advising on frame construction, robust details, structural design, value engineering and specifications. A range of fabrication options are available including panel construction; a cost-effective alternative to traditional timber frame technology which is strong, easy to build, weather-proof and used to construct walls, floors and roofs. The structure is built by the experienced team in an efficient and professional manner with the minimum of fuss.

Timber Engineering

OFP’s aim is to be the leading provider of engineered timber products. The company also designs and supplies timber engineering systems for flooring in cassette and loose forms. I-Beam structural timber provides longer, tighter spans and comprises of a Kerto flange and high strength OSB web which offers superior structural stability and incredible strength to weight ratios. Kerto timber provides excellent structural strength and is suitable for large load applications, lintels and rim boards. For apartments, OFP uses Ultrajoist super-dried timber which has virtually no moisture and less risk of shrinkage. OFP manufactures open web joists, a proven fast and effective floor system which allows for service runs without the need for drilling or notching timber. Glulam is an engineered laminated product which provides excellent design possibilities due to its flexible nature. Key features and benefits of an engineered system include:

  • Long lengths spanning over multiple supports
  • Fast installation times
  • Suitable for long roof rafters and complex roofs
  • Stability and reliability
  • Minimal shrinkage and twisting
  • Service holes can be easily cut or drilled through the thin web
  • Services can be installed after the deck has been installed
  • Easy to handle
