BCL Timber Projects is celebrating 50 years of Excellence!


BCL are proud to celebrate our 50th anniversary this year. Over the past half-century, BCL Timber Projects has established itself as one of the leading specialist manufacturers of wooden slatted walls, timber slat ceilings and acoustic wood panelling, having worked on some of the most technically demanding and high-profile schemes throughout the UK.

This milestone not only represents our success in delivering timber cladding panels & wooden slat panelling but also reflects BCL’s commitment to quality, sustainability, and customer satisfaction – retaining a position at the forefront of the construction industry, consistently innovating and bringing new timber panel offerings to the market that deliver increased value and advanced performance for the UK built environment. The latest being our revolutionary solution for non-combustible wood – our Aluminium TIMBER EFFECT, that creates stunningly realistic faux wood, fully fire-resistant timber finishes for walls & ceilings with all of the same acoustic performance, design flexibility and on-site efficiency of a BCL timber slatted panel system – but crucially allowing for safer buildings and aligning with the tighter and more diligent fire assessment and strategies of today.

Barrett Ceilings was founded in 1973 by Brian Barrett to carry out suspended ceilings, partitioning & dry-lining work. Following the successful completion of several prestigious wood ceilings, including Wimbledon AELTCC - the decision was taken to establish a dedicated presence in this market by the formation of BCL Timber Projects.

Over the past five decades, the company has transformed from a small ceiling business into a leading provider of timber slat walls, acoustic wood ceilings and wooden cladding panels and are now specified and collaborate on some of the biggest projects in the UK and abroad, increasing its numbers each year.

As BCL Timber Projects celebrates its 50th anniversary, the company looks toward the future with optimism and determination. With a strong foundation built on decades of wooden panelling expertise, innovation, and customer satisfaction, BCL Timber Projects is poised to continue its growth in both the UK domestic market and overseas.
