Benfield ATT have a
reputation for providing high quality, advanced timber
design solutions for all aspects of timber framed
buildings, supplying both the domestic and private
markets at home and abroad.
In September of
1998, we provided the "Central Feature" at the
Alexandra Palace Self Build Show, hosted by "Build
it" magazine. The central feature was an example of
one of the large range of "Garden Lodges"
which Benfield ATT manufacture and erect.
The response from the show was so enormous that we were
unable to satisfy the demand. To address this we
invested heavily in R&D to overcome the time
consuming elements of manufacture. In the relatively
small quantities envisaged, the earlier design was not
thought to be a problem, as it only represented a fringe
activity to our core business of supplying timber framed
houses and commercial structures.
Our brief was to design
and engineer a system to meet all demands. It had to be
totally flexible in its design principles and to be able
to offer virtually any design shape from a standardised
set of components. It had to meet/exceed the stringent
building regulation requirements, whilst at the same
time offer unrivalled value for money. But most of all,
it had to have appeal.
We believe we have
achieved this design brief in full. Judge for
yourself if you think that we have!
All garden and leisure
lodges are manufactured from high-grade components that
have been sourced specifically to maximise the overall
performance of the structure.
Long Life Flexibility with
Our lodges can be
purchased in their most basic form, then upgraded when
required to suit specific requirements. You can
save on the initial cost, whilst maintaining flexibility
to enhance the structure at any point in the future.
All lodges are designed
to take "office loading" so lodges can easily
be used for as many purposes throughout its long life
