Architects & Engineers
At Green Oak we offer a caring and professional service and as enthusiastic and informed team players will work with you to ensure your project runs smoothly. We understand the need to stay within budget and on programme and work hard to deliver on our commitments.
We have a wealth of design experience gained over 30 years working in the industry, our team understands engineering structures and what makes them work. We have an enormous library of design ideas to draw upon to help achieve your architectural aspirations, and are knowledgeable on issues such as how best to form the envelope around the oak frame, including air tightness and thermal performance issues.
Where a structure is exposed to the weather we will assist in achieving the best longevity and durability to ensure that the performance of the building is as good as it can be.
Three of our projects have won the Gold Wood Award, two have made it to the short list of the Stirling Prize, and one of our projects won the Institute of Structural Engineers Supreme Award for engineering excellence. Bearing in mind that in the 25 years that this award has been available only 5 structures have earned such recognition this is quite an accolade.
Several other of our projects have won RIBA regional awards as well as a host of other smaller awards.
We also offer CPD training to engineering and architectural practices and have a number of presentations that might interest you.

"Thank you for the frame that you have just finished at Rogate. It was a miserable wet day, yesterday and John and team carried on regardless. We are delighted with the overall look and also the mouldings to the members. As usual, the frame was millimetre accurate and will be easy to take forward to complete the building."Bob, Trembath Associates
"We have constructed several buildings using Oak frames designed, manufactured and erected by the Green Oak Carpentry Company. We are pleased to confirm that their work is accurate, well detailed and delivered on time. They are knowledgeable and we find working with them easy and straight forward. We therefore have no hesitation in recommending them."Robert, Trembath Associates
"Everyone is very impressed with the finished result and I thought I would just take the opportunity of belatedly giving my thanks to you and your team for a job very well done. I have submitted the bridge for a Civic Society award for next year and have every expectation of its success."P White, Northholt & Greenford Countryside Park Manager
"Just to say that it looks fabulous, and all who survey it are wonder-struck. Best wishes and many thanks to you all."Simon, National Trust
"Thanks for the excellent job which has just been completed on the Oak Frame extension to the above property. Not only is the quality of the work faultless, it is a true work of art, which will bring endless enjoyment to me and my wife. The end result has surpassed our wildest expectations."Ray Nicolaides
