About Us

Over 50 years of combined knowledge and experience in Timber Frame Construction

Following extensive experience in European import and consultancy, in 2019 we formed Elite Offsite Ltd. We now have our own 10,000 sq ft manufacturing facility at Priddy’s Hard, in the heart of the south coast.

We are bringing our extensive experience of importing European timber frame full closed panel systems to the UK market, with our fully integrated systems which have excellent thermal performance.

This fabric first approach, when integrated with intelligent control systems allows clients to achieve a true carbon zero home. Through 2020 we are delivering 30 such carbon-zero units for Elite Homes as part of the Priddys Hard development.

The Elite Offsite factory at Priddys Hard has easy access to the M27 and a strong supply chain. This enables us to design, manufacture & ship your building on time and to our exacting specifications, in line with our rigorous in-house quality standard.

Within the factory we have 2 production lines with a capacity of circa 600 units per year. This facility also houses our entire team including admin, design and production in our newly constructed office environment.

We are more than happy to arrange a visit or tour of our facility by appointment, please just drop us an email to find out more.

Elite Offsite appoint specialist timber frame structural engineers who cover the full structure of the building from the top of the slab up. As part of the service and on appointment we will provide you with the full building line and point loads allowing your Structural / Civil engineer to complete their foundation and slab design. From then up it’s all over to us, we are with you all the way with free advice throughout the project through to the final calculation pack submission and beyond.

OffSite Fire Risk Assessment

Fire is becoming at massively important element for any building scheme and with timber frame buildings it is important to design fire engineering through the building process. We can offer the service with our specialist team to produce the Offsite fire risk assessment and mitigation measures required by the HSE and in line with the Structural Timber Frame Association 16 steps to fire safety. Typically, this is something which is completed by the principle designer, but we are finding an increasing knowledge gap in the industry so can offer this specialist service.

Manufacturing

Within our 10,000 sq ft manufacturing facility we have a team of highly trained sawyers and production workers on 2 production lines. Our team will manufacture your timber frame components to the exact details, with the millimetre precision possible only with factory processes.

Our facility is equipped with all the equipment required to create your wall and floor cassettes, as well as fully insulate and protect them prior to shipping.

All our timber is procured, sourced and purchased from certified suppliers, compliant with the Programme for Endorsement of Forest Certification Scheme (PEFC)

Supply & Assembly

Elite Offsite can offer both a supply only solution or our full supply and assembly package to suit your requirements and preference. When we undertake the assembly process, we provide you with our fully qualified supervisors and personnel from our trusted team of carpentry contractors with a close liaison between site and manufacture. Should you opt for the self build option we will provide you with the required design and fixing specification to undertake your own assembly.

Completion

On the final completion of your project and inspection to your sastification we shall issue you with the required handover documention. This will include your full structural design calculations and manufacturing drawings for your records and hand over to building control.
