In 2021 Timber Kit Solutions Ltd started work on a £5.6million affordable housing development at Tillington Road Hereford.

We started on the site in September erecting the timber frames for 44 homes, which will be available for rent and shared ownership andrent-to-buy from Connexus Housing from Spring 2022.

Shrewsbury based TC Homes Contracting Ltd were chosen as the building partners and the company, in turn, has contracted Timber Kit Solutions Ltd to supply, make and erect the timber frames for all 44 units.

The development of 2, 3 and 4-bed houses and bungalows includes accessible and adaptable dwellings for wheelchair users.

Ray Wilde, Project Manager at TC Homes said “This is one of our biggest developments yet and it’s part of our growth plans for the business”.

“There is a shortage of affordable housing in Hereford and these much-needed homes will help to address that. We are an ethical company and we focus on affordable housing.

“We are looking at developing that market for the future”.

“This market has been identified by the chancellor as an ‘economy booster’. There is a greater need for affordable housing nationwide and we are helping to fulfil that need”.

“Land can be difficult to find and as a company, we have the resources to locate land and work through the planning process for our clients.

“We offer a complete package from sourcing land to handing over a finished development”.

Simon Ball, Director at Timber Kit Solutions said the contract was worth around £500,000 for his company.

“This is one of the largest projects we have been involved in and it will keep around 15 people directly employed by us and a further six subcontractors employed,” he said.

“TKS and TC Homes have worked together on projects for 12 years. Timber kits are a great way to build because they are a quicker building method.

“All of the timber is sustainably sourced and better for the end-user who will need to spend less on utilities like gas and electric as it is better-insulated product.“Our work to fit the frames for all 44 houses took us around 20 weeks and we successfully completed all the frames in February 2022,” he added.
