Supply & Fix Contracting

Harlow Timber Systems Limited provides the total service from Supply only to Supply and Fix Contract.

We only use our own approved sub-contractors for the purpose of erecting the timber roof structures.

We are able to arrange the mechanical handling requirements to construct the roof structures, on Contract lift status.

In most cases, scaffold, welfare and waste facilities will need to be supplied by the main contractor.

Site method statements and risk assessments will be provided prior to any work commencing on site.

Project Managers are used to oversee our sub-contractors, ensuring all work is completed to the required quality standard and to the required schedule.

Quality Control and Insurance

Harlow Timber Systems Limited maintain a high level of quality through control and audit reviews every 6 months. We are governed by a third party organisation independent of the business, tasked with ensuring that we provide the product that is required.

Our quality control also covers the subcontractors used within our installation contracts – ensuring that all insurances required are in place and legal.

PI Insurance, Public Liability, Employers liability and design liability are covered by the Groups Insurance company.

All Harlow Timber Systems Limited Subcontract teams are CSCS registered and trained in all aspects of site health and safety. We operate a very strict policy on health and safety. All our risk assessments and method statements are kept on site as well as in the main contractor’s offices. All site staff are fully equipped with all relevant PPE.

Site Management

We provide our own Site Foreman for every job. It is their job to ensure that everything runs smoothly and to oversee the work done by the joinery team, ensuring all Method Statements, Risk Assessments and Health & Safety Procedures are adhered to. It is their responsibility to manage all aspects of the joinery team’s work on site and how this fits into the programme of the contractors.

Lifting & Hoisting

All our joiners are trained for lifting operations. We can take care of all aspects of the lifting of roof trusses, roofing timbers and beams etc through the provision of teams including lifting supervisors, slingers, riggers and banks people.


We also offer a consultancy service to main contractors and builders tasked with difficult joinery problems. We can advise on the best way to go about the joinery element of the project and the likely costs and timescales involved
