Modern methods of timber frame construction were introduced into the UK in the 1960s and are a fully accepted method of building. There are now many examples of multi-storey timber frame buildings of six or seven storeys across the UK, and use of timber frame continues to grow as a mainstream construction method for dwellings and medium-rise buildings.

This is because timber frame offers a range of benefits, including the potential for excellent energy efficiency, fast completion (consequently reducing site work), and economic use of materials, all of which are maximised when off-site prefabrication is utilised.
