Benfield ATT Limited is a private, independently owned, limited company with hundreds of years collective knowledge and experience of the timber, construction and timber engineering industries.
As well as employing advanced timber technology to manufacture its own panel systems, ATT developed a unique capability to design, deliver and erect buildings on difficult to access and minimal size sites. This stems from the limitations increasingly forced on individual ‘self builder’ clients by competition from commercial builders and developers to acquire more easily developable sites. With most projects being for ‘one off’ buildings, ATT’s assessment starts with a site’s potential as well as limitations.
Progressively this extensive experience of collaborating with owner developers, solving design and logistics problems, and providing individual, corporate and government clients with practical, cost effective solutions to achieve their objectives, has grown into a much sought after capability. In 1999 this lead to ATT taking the ‘Best of Show’ award at the Alexandra Palace ‘Self Build Show’, then, in partnership with international architects Austin Smith Lord, to it winning the national competition for system build Schools led by Essex, for whom it delivered several turn key projects, and the City Learning Centres project, the first of which has been built at Waltham Forest.
Besides designing, manufacturing and erecting a range of residential, community, educational and health buildings for the UK mainland, ATT also manufactured and supplied structures to the Channel Islands, the Falkland Islands, the Isle of Man, and the Scottish Isles. Negotiations for further export contracts to Spain and Ireland are currently in hand.
Our approach is based on the provision of a service tailored to individual requirements. We are completely flexible and can cover everything from design appraisal right through to site supervision. Prior to manufacture timber is stored under cover in a purpose made facility to ensure that it has the correct moisture content at the assembly stage. Our Specialist Projects Division provides solutions for complex structures where a high degree of "Advanced Timber Technology" is required. Between them our own "in house" Structural Engineering and Architectural departments can transform even a basic idea into a true art form. With all structural timber stress graded and double vacuum treated against vermin and fungal attack, the choice is yours.
Today, building on years of research and development, Benfield ATT is pleased to provide even higher levels of quality, energy efficiency, and attention to detail for our growing market of discerning, environmentally concerned, cost conscious home builders, developers, contractors, architects, surveyors, quango’s and governmental authorities.
We are currently developing a "partnering" approach to delivering "best value" total solution to any building problem. This includes helping architects and building owners squeeze even greater value out of their project by devising fully detailed, essential education and training services to help both main and sub-contractors adapt their skills to the effective and efficient use of timber structures.
Besides manufacturing directly for the leisure, commercial, overseas and builders' markets, Benfield ATT now caters directly for "self builders", as well as providing even higher levels of quality, energy efficiency, ecological concern, and attention to detail for the growing system build markets that, like the UK Government, recognise the import role of timber in addressing the vitally important global concern for long-term sustainable development.
Indeed training, as well as research and development, is beginning to feature prominently in our business mix as we move forward to the next generation of specialist timber engineered building systems. Directly addressing central government’s call for greater efforts to be placed on the benefits of time, cost, waste reduction and long-term sustainability that this affords, Benfield ATT is well placed to deliver both standard and unusual structures to suit most needs.
