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.
