Tidworth MOD Housing Development Complete

We are pleased to announce that the Ministry of Defence housing development at Tidworth is now complete.  The circa £70 million housing development in Wiltshire was constructed by housebuilder, Hill, working on behalf of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO), and delivered under the Army Basing Programme, a joint Army and Defence Infrastructure Programme.

The project required the delivery of 322 homes within 20 months, and was completed ahead of programme.    We manufactured, delivered to site and erected timber frame kits for all 322 houses in just 13 months, meeting our target of 10 units per week over a phased programme.

The DIO and Hill welcomed the Minister for Defence Procurement, Guto Bebb to an event to mark the completion of the Salisbury Plain scheme, meeting service personnel and their families in their new homes.

Speaking about the success of the Tidworth project and its impact upon Taylor Lane Timber Frame, senior sales manager, Wayne Ricketts said: “We have a long-standing relationship with Hill but this was our first MOD contract and we’re thrilled to have played a part in delivering such a successful project.  Tidworth has had a positive impact on our business practises and raised awareness of our capacity and capability.  We have secured several £1 million+ contracts since completing the development including another, larger DIO housing scheme.”

5/ 5 Stars

"Taylor Lane were key to the design process. They do all the engineering calculations...and tell you if something’s possible or not, calculate the truss requirements etc. "

5/ 5 Stars

"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."
