CPD Seminars

CPD Seminars
The Green Oak Carpentry Company offers Continuing Professional Development seminars to architects and engineers.

These seminars have been well received by building professionals. They cover all aspects of oak timber framing and timber structure design, and are an invaluable resource.

Designers who attend our seminars will be able to better understand the capabilities of timber and to design accordingly.

Too often designers assume that timber cannot achieve a large span or carry significant loads, but this is simply not the case and structural oak frames or other forms of timber structure can perform remarkably well with the right approach and detailing.

In recent years the popularity of timber has grown as has the understanding of how best to treat the material.

"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

"Just a quick note to say thank you for sending such a great team to do the work. As well as clearly being very hardworking and hugely skilled, Mick, Andy, Clark and Dave were all exceptionally pleasant, considerate and cheerful guys to have around, and as such a huge credit to Green Oak."

Julia, Crabfields Farm

"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 wanted to write to you to express our profound gratitude for the excellent work you have done on our building scheme. It cannot have been easy to pick up the project from another architect when there were still a number of issues unresolved, but you have done so brilliantly and remained calm throughout, even at fraught times. We really do appreciate that you have gone the extra mile for us. We have all enjoyed working with you and have been so impressed with the quality of your work."

Alastair, The Early Years Project
