Timber formwork

VolkerBrooks designs and manufactures timber formwork to client specific requirements on both a sale and hire basis. We also operate one of the largest hire fleets of RMD formwork equipment and accessories in the north of England.



The production of curved formwork is our speciality and we have many years of experience in producing complicated geometric shapes that give a precise representation of our client's requirements.

All of our work is undertaken in a fully equipped manufacturing facility by highly skilled and experienced craftsmen and is recognised in the industry as being of the highest standard. We work closely with all our clients to ensure that a cost-effective design is produced that gives maximum speed of fixing and stripping whilst also achieving an efficient level of re-use.

All formwork designed and manufactured by VolkerBrooks will arrive pre-assembled as road transportable panels and will be ready to bolt together and erect as soon as it is delivered, eradicating the need for you to make shutters up from components on site. All formwork can be provided with pre-assembled access platforms fixed at the top and at intermediate levels.

Timber products – bridges and walkways

VolkerBrooks has extensive experience in producing special timber structures and timber clad steel structures such as footbridges, walkways and jetties. Inland locations have included footbridges over streams, rivers and railways, and we have also supplied products for coastal waters.


Using responsible timber

We believe that the way we conduct our business can make a real difference to protecting the environment. We have a commitment to source the timber we use and sell from legal, responsible and well managed forests or mills. Our procurement policy and procedures are certified against both the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC) and the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC).
