Decades of experience informs the Carpenter Oak team's depth of understanding. We work with architects and structural engineers, surveying existing frames and proposing a sensitive program for oak frame restoration work.
The work we produce is award-winning. Our conservation specialists are members of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) and the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB). They lead cutting edge training and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in timber engineering and conservation techniques. As a team, we value our work with young people and communities, supporting them to understand and get practically involved in heritage projects that matter to them.
We have worked on several buildings of historical importance, including Windsor castle after the 1992 fire and Stirling Castle. One of our early oak frame restoration projects includes working on Scott's and Shackleton's huts in the Antartic.
Carpenter Oak’s depth of understanding is informed by decades of experience; working on buildings from the early medieval, to the 20th century industrial. We know how to read buildings, working with architects and structural engineers to survey existing frames and propose sensitive schedules of repairs.
Our timber frame designers are here to interpret your ideas and your architect’s provisional scheme. We will establish a well thought out, structurally sound timber frame design in preparation for ordering materials and constructing the frame in the workshops.
Carpenter Oak respects time-honoured skills, enabling these to live on in the methods we perfect for restoration today.
Our work contributes to cost certainty, reporting to funders, lenders and investors.
