Who We Are

Design and Build Specialists

Duncan Murray, Managing Director of Directline Structures

We have been Design and Build specialists since 1988. From our base in Ashford, Kent, we primarily serve clients in the South East of England; however we have undertaken projects around the UK and abroad.

We pride ourselves in bringing you a very high standard of project management and the local knowledge that helps us to meet all your needs. We feel passionately about our projects and rise to the challenge of exceeding client expectations.

A Trusted Team

Our experienced and qualified staff, including Engineers, Architect, Project Managers and Site Managers, provide you with all the technical expertise and project management you need for your project to run smoothly. We also work in close co-operation with a select team of specialists in the areas of architecture, structural engineering, civils, heating and electrics. As an authorised Astron Buildings System supplier, we are also able to call upon Astron’s extensive knowledge of steel frame buildings. This provides flexibility and efficiency, together with access to extended knowledge and expertise.

Our team are at the heart of our success and it is our shared enthusiasm for each project that positions us where we are today. We take the time to continually refine our team’s skills and we were accredited with Investors In People in 2004. We are committed to environmental issues and work to achieve ‘best practice’ throughout the design and construction phases, both in our office and on site.

Who we were

Directline Structures was established over 24 years ago and has had a couple of face-lifts in that time. Our offices were previously based in the rural Goudhurst, until we decided to relocate to our purpose built offices in Ashford in 2009. The NHS 111 service leased the whole premises in 2012 and we are currently located in Rolvenden.

We have also had different names associated with the company, including Directline Contracts Ltd, Directline Construction Ltd and MTS Structures Ltd. All of these names and subsidiaries were intended to handle different aspects of our work but have since been absorbed into one single, efficient Directline Structures.

Our Steel Frame partner Astron Building Systems has also been known as Lindab and Astron Lindab.
