Topping Out at Lovell SFA Bulford Site

We are thrilled to announce the topping out of our final, 225th timber frame kit at the Salisbury Plain Service Family Accommodation (SFA) site in Bulford.  The completion was marked with a handshake and presentation between representatives from Taylor Lane Timber Frame and Lovell.

The last roof lift was a massive team effort, with extreme wind speeds delaying the lift from Wednesday to Friday.

We completed the last timber frame in-line with Lovell’s stringent schedule, erecting 225 plots in 29 weeks!  We met the deadline through dedicated onsite management, manufacturing output and efficient programming.

Work continues on the second phase of the Lovell SFA project, with kits being delivered and erected at Larkhill.

Taylor Lane Services

"We have a long history with Taylor Lane. They have worked with Lovell and been part of our supply chain for well over 15 years, that I know to. When I have visited Hereford (on a number of occasions), it’s a welcoming business that’s open, honest and transparent on all matters commercial, design, technical. We quickly derived confidence that they were the right choice for us...and that’s been vindicated by performance onsite thereafter."

5/ 5 Stars

"We had worked with them [Taylor Lane] previously and were happy to continue that relationship knowing the quality of the frame and the service that we would receive."

5/ 5 Stars

"We had heard nothing but positive reviews about Taylor Lane and after meeting with Padraig [Taylor Lane’s self-build manager] and talking through our vision, we had no hesitation in our decision to build using a Taylor Lane frame.  Padraig was fantastic throughout, as was the supply and delivery of the frame.  Every dealing we had with them was a pleasure"

5/ 5 Stars

"The supply and delivery of materials was well-managed and the quality was excellent. The erection of the frame was carried out promptly and professionally, and completed on programme."
