Timberframe construction

Lowfield get involved with community project

Over the last few years we have seen the size of our builds get bigger and bigger and the majority of our work being large commercial projects such as hotels, schools and housing developments, that’s why when we get an opportunity to get involved in community projects that benefit our local area, we jump at them.

The project was carried out as part of main contractor Pave Aways community benefits programme, where they support local organisations and charities in the areas where they are working. Lowfield Timber Frames supplied the timber frame structure for the building.

The project allows youth groups in Guilsfield to enjoy a raft of outdoor activities. The build consisted of a covered outdoor space in the grounds of the Guilsfield Jubilee Hut that local scout and guide groups will be able to use as a camp kitchen and to hold outdoor meetings.

Linda Hart, chair of the Guilsfield Jubilee Hut committee, said: “Now more than ever we are in need of open outdoor space so that the children can safely come back to the group meetings.

“The plan was for a three-sided covered area — quite simple but very valuable. We are over moon with what is being built and cannot wait to put it to good use.”
