From sawmill to factory then on to site, the name Benfield has been synonymous with high quality timber buildings for over 70 years. Today our ‘Green Buildings’ deliver highly energy efficient structures for architects, (self) builders and their clients.
Operating nationwide throughout the UK, our ‘Full Service’ offering includes surveying, design, planning, building regulations, manufacture and erection. Exports have been made to the Maldives and Falklands, but more closely we serve the Scottish Islands, Channel Islands and France.
DfMA (Design for Manufacture & Assembly) is, in partnership with architect and builder clients, increasingly our approach to all projects, with more elements and components being pre-fabricated in our factory for on-site assembly. This delivers higher quality, accuracy, and delivery time certainty.

It was tight, and it was cramped, but it did have direct frontage to the River Thames on the opposite side to the Lochs. At last Andy and Nicki had found their dreams, so they bought it. It only remained to get planning permission to demolish and rebuild the bungalow, although this proved far from easy, in more ways than one.
