Silvatec Design Limited, a privately owned company, was incorporated in 2002 in response to the demand for specialist timber engineering solutions for the growing timber frame market.

Indeed the growth and utilisation of Timber Frame in the UK has been significantly influenced by changes in thermal regulations, site costs, shortage of skilled site labour and the speed of construction offered by this method of building. Timber frame, originally used for small single or two storey house, is now being utilised in hotels, offices, sports halls in structures up to seven storeys high.


Silvatec Design is committed to offering its clients a high quality service for all projects undertaken from single housing to multi sites and multi-storey blocks.

In order to ensure that each of our services are of the highest standard we have introduced a strict quality control system incorporated into the UKTFA Q-Mark accreditation.

Silvatec Design provides services including Structural Engineering, Timber Frame Design, Site Inspections and Independent Checks, Certification and Accelerated lead-time service.



Silvatec Design has been at the forefront of developed structural solutions for the medium rise building market (5, 6 and 7 storey buildings).

The company has also developed a patented invention that has potential volume purchasers worldwide. Panel Plumb is an easy-to-use and easy-to-read level to ensure that panels are erected vertical and can be used to verify panels remain plumb after erection is completed.

Q-Mark is the UKTFA's badge of honour for the best timber frame Designers, Manufacturers, Erectors and other Suppliers in this market.
