NYTimber has started the year as it means to go on after supplying its 4,000th NYTRoof, following a series of contract wins from some of the UK’s largest housebuilders.
NYTRoof is a room in the roof panelised system that is NHBC approved and has Robust Detail Accreditation. It comprises gable and party spandrels, and pre-insulated cassettes, which replaces attic trusses. The NYTRoof dramatically increases the speed of build and saves time, money, and reduces risk exposure to construction workers, who are now required to spend much less time working at a height.
As demand from national housebuilders has increased, the company has created 10 new jobs to increase capacity and expects to add another 10 manufacturing employees before the year is through.
Established in 1979, NYTimber is now part of the UK's independent largest timber group, National Timber Group. It introduced the NYTRoof system in 2013, joining its range of off-site manufactured timber products such as spandrel panels and trussed rafters, which it supplies to housebuilders, construction companies, developers, and local builders.
Nick Kershaw, Managing Director at NYTimber, said: "The housebuilding industry is embracing off-site solutions to realise efficiency gains, and NYTimber is in a great position to continue to provide support and capacity.
"Many companies are leaving behind supply and fit models that no longer make economic sense when the product can be delivered in kit-form and fitted by local tradespeople. NYTimber also provide training and on-going support for site, as well as a crane-off service.
"NYTimber entered the market for pre-fabricated roofing solutions early and has built a fantastic working relationship with national housebuilders that I hope can continue to grow."
