The role of the UKTFA

The UKTFA is run by a management team and a board of directors representing some of the UK’s leading timber frame manufacturers and supply chain companies.

We encourage our members to take an active role in the Association and to facilitate this process all members are entitled to sit on one of our working groups or committees.  All committees are chaired by a member of the Board.

PR & Marketing

The UKTFA is recognised as the authoritative voice of the timber frame industry, providing definitive technical information, plus news and views from across the sector.

Continually monitoring the media on behalf of the membership, the UKTFA provides robust, honest repudiation of any adverse publicity but critically delivers high level media relations to boost the visibility of the Association, its members and other stakeholders.

The PR & Marketing committee is chaired by Lawrence Young


The Technical Committee drives the outputs that continually demonstrate that timber frame is the most sustainable form of construction in the UK.  We work closely with the HSE, BRE and Zero Carbon Hub to ensure that we are one step ahead of the sustainability agenda – empowering our members with knowledge and know how that helps them compete against other methods of construction.

Initiatives such as the quality assurance standard and Site Safe have the integrity that satisfies the need to protect its broad membership whilst ensuring that the highest service standards are represented throughout the entire UK timber frame industry.

Whilst retaining technical advocates to monitor International, European and British Standards and Building Regulations, the UKTFA is focused on influencing the European Executive, the Westminster Government, the Scottish Executive and National and Regional Assemblies to ensure that all relevant new legislation is practical to implement and is positive towards Timber Frame, and then provides robust technical guidance on the key aspects for its members.

The Technical committee is chaired by Paul Newman

Health & Safety, Education & Training

The Association is not just the voice of sustainable construction but we also ensure that our members have access to the very latest health & safety training to ensure that the ‘UKTFA’ logo is not just a badge, but tangible reassurance to the construction industry that using a UKTFA member means the delivery of the highest standards of technical excellence and safety on site.

In addition to the practical elements of constructing in timber frame, the Association has launched the  which supports our members in the delivery of ‘value-added’ schemes – not bottom price wins.

This extensive committee is chaired by Gerard Lockey
