Hundreds of jobs on the way as timber frame giant reveals plans for £45m HQ
One of the UK’s largest timber frame manufacturers has chosen Derby as the location for its new headquarters.
Oregon Timber Frame will relocate from its current HQ in Burton to a recently-completed 186,000 sq ft facility at Infinity Park Derby this summer, with the move expected to create around 200 jobs.
Housebuilding giant Barratt Developments, which owns the company, is understood to have invested £45m in the new site.
The facility is located off Junction 3 of the A50 and boasts a BREEAM “Very Good” rating and an EPC rating of “A.” It was built by Bowmer + Kirkland.
Barratt acquired Oregon Timber Frame in 2019 to support its off-site production operations.
Peter Wade, joint managing director of Oregon, said:
“Infinity Park Derby will ultimately become our new base to support Barratt’s move to modern methods of construction, and so it was imperative that the building’s sustainable credentials were in line with those of our business. This new state-of-the-art facility will support our long-term goals to increase our use of modern methods of construction off-site and reduce our carbon footprint.”
