Welcome to Mercers
Neil Mercer founded The Timber Frame Consultancy in 2006 - a specialist timber frame consultancy, based in East Sussex. Now a family-run concern, Mercers design, supply and install timber frame structures for developers, self-builders and timber frame manufacturers.
As the single most important structural component of your build, you need precision and an experienced eye to oversee your project, navigating the journey alongside you to deliver a frame that’s accurate, that takes into account performance and budget requirements, logistical limitations and keeps your build on track. And that’s exactly what you can expect from Mercers timber frame consultancy.
Vastly popular for the speed of erection, excellent thermal efficiency, airtightness and environmental impact, timber frames are an increasingly popular choice over traditional construction methods. Our timber is ethically sourced, brilliant quality and high performing.
Supplying and installing timber frames
Having spent over two decades in the industry, we’re pretty well connected. That means we can build the best tailored package for the supply and installation of your timber frame, saving you time and money and giving you the confidence that your frame will be erected efficiently and accurately.
Designing and engineering timber frames
We’re well known for the precision of our work. For our clients, this equates to speed, less cost and greater accuracy on-site. As a design consultancy, we regularly work with timber frame manufacturers and developers who value our expertise and precision in creating models that work. Working in proud partnership with other timber frame companies, we remain at the forefront of the latest technology, details and practices, bringing you the best possible service.
We believe in making life simple, which is why you’ll have one point of contact throughout your project. No being passed from one department to the next, or having to coordinate multiple companies. We have a flexible approach to working hours in order to be available for clients who have 9-5 commitments.
A partner for your self-build adventure
There’s little we love more than joining clients as they embark on their self-build adventure. Often a once in a lifetime experience, this immensely rewarding journey can be as nerve-wracking as it is thrilling, and you’ll benefit hugely from having a team alongside you who are fully invested in achieving an incredible result, whilst remaining cost competitive.
Perhaps you’re a self-builder with a trusted team of carpenters who need support with designing and engineering your timber frame – maybe you’re a developer who have a team of installers but need help in designing and manufacturing the frame for your project, or maybe you’re a timber frame manufacturer who needs extra resource in designing frames for your client projects – whatever your requirement, we have the expertise and agility to bring your frame to life with an accuracy that we take immense pride in.
