Pre-Cut, Pre-Nailed Frames


A load ready to go out to site

  • Predominantly built in Douglas Fir (ex 100x50) framing with H3 Radiata plates
  • Kiln-dried Radiata supplied on request

Roof Trusses

  • Detailed using the latest version of MITEK software and assembled with the GANG-NAIL plate system.
  • Built in Douglas Fir or Kiln-dried Radiata.

Our preferred option for fabrication is Douglas Fir as we have found it stays naturally straight and has good strength ratings. The timber, sourced from our Nelson suppliers, which is of a consistently high grade, benefits in our production. Douglas Fir is now able to be treated for use in houses that require treated timber.


A manufactured system which is a method of providing large clear spans in rafter, purlin and floor joist situations, with ease of use and accessability to subcontractors for the threading of pipes and wires etc.

Steel Beams

We now have an attached Engineering Workshop with 2 qualified Fitter-Welders. Steel Beams are manufactured at the detailing stage and are ready to go out to site and be lifted into place as soon as the frames are stood. This ensures that construction runs smoothly with no hold-ups. We have our own Hiab Truck for this purpose.

Sundry Timbers

Associated framing timbers such as Ceiling batten, Purlins, Top-plate etc, are supplied at competitive rates on the request of our clients.
