Distance no object for SMTS

Such is the popularity and versatility of timber frame that Stewart Milne Timber Systems is fulfilling orders from as far away as the Falkland Islands.

Stewart Milne Timber Systems, the UK’s leading timber frame provider, has just shipped the full system for two, two-storey private houses that will take longer to reach their destination by sea than they will take to build!

These orders come on the back of other contracts for housing, offices and even a hotel that Stewart Milne Timber Systems has delivered to the Falklands in the past. Everything, from the timber frame system and pre-fabricated roof trusses to the kitchen units and worktops, is included in the shipment and ready to be constructed on site.

Not only is the timber system designed to comply with existing Falkland Islands building regulations, it is also future-proofed to surpass the more stringent insulation requirements proposed by the Islands’ Building Control.

The shipment left the UK mid-April and is scheduled to arrive in the Falkland Islands mid-May.
