Last week, we hosted the first tour of our new, £45 million timber frame factory in Derby. A group of mortgage lenders and valuers including TSB Bank, Lloyds Banking Group and Nationwide Building Society, toured the factory to see how raw materials are taken from one end of the 200,000-square foot facility and placed on a giant conveyor belt, where wall and floor panels and roof trusses are put together by a combination of machines and skilled craftsmen. The Oregon timber frame factory is part of our plan to boost the number of homes we build using Modern Methods of Construction to 30% by 2025. The factory is currently able to deliver 1,000 homes a year and aims to produce 4,000 a year. Walking along the factory floor, the group had a glimpse into the fast and efficient system, which cuts and nails together structural frames with millimetre precision. Once the factory is up to full capacity, 25 timber frame kits a day will roll-off the production line on to trucks - leaving behind almost zero waste. #sustainability #banking #construction
