Commercial Oak Framing

Our skills, expertise and knowledge are borne out of thirty years of problem-solving and seeing complex commercial oak framing projects brought to fruition. We look to share this expertise from the outset, offering frame design and engineering contracts to enable early collaboration on projects.

Every project we undertake is unique, including the UK’s most prestigious and challenging timber frame engineering projects. We regularly collaborate with architects and engineers, participating in some of the finest timber framed public, commercial and educational buildings.

Our team has lead the way in the creative and technical design-led solutions of commercial oak framing ranging from small gridshells to large timber canopies. We don’t promote a particular approach within our design. We harness the potential of timber engineering to tailor an approach that is right for every individual oak frame for any commercial development. Passionate about the detail – both the aesthetic and process.

We produce contemporary designs such as Greywings in glu-laminated timber to a more traditional oak frame with other timber options available.

If you are looking for an oak frame for commercial development, we have worked on many award winning projects such as the RIBA award winning Brixton Department Store, Wolfson Tree Management Centre, Solar Canopy at the Earth Centre and Loch Lomond National Park Headquarters along with the Wood Award winning Stowe Gardens Visitor Center to name but a few.

We collaborate with renown architects and engineers such as Squire and Partners, Momentum Structural Engineers, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, BuroHappold, Page\Park, David Narro Associates, Mark Lovell Design Engineers and Simpson & Brown

Our widely experienced team are registered with Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) and are Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) certified. We have site operatives trained in Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) and Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS).

We are members of the Timber Research and Development Association (TRADA), Building Safety Group (BSG) and Construction Line

We are able to provide copies of our Health and Safety Policy, Environmental Policy, Employer’s Liability Insurance, and Professional Indemnity Insurance.
