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.

"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
"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
"Seems a long time since we finished with the garden room project but we have to say that it has been a huge success in every aspect. The room has become the place of choice for visitors. I can guarantee that everyone, yes everyone who visits, is blown away by the frame."Mel, Moat Farm
"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
