We have a huge amount of experience in the conservation and repair of historic timber structures. We have worked with clients such as The National Trust, Historic Royal Palaces, Historic England and numerous other public and private clients.
We care deeply about the conservation of our timber built heritage and understand the many complex conservation issues that can arise. You will find us caring, well informed and pro-active in helping you to achieve your project goals. We work hard to keep within budget and work closely with our clients to achieve this.
We are able to prepare structural and condition surveys and drawings, advise on timber procurement and preservation, prepare a schedule of repairs, as well as undertaking the works. Our MD sits on the UK and International ICOMOS Wood Committees, and our Design Manager is a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Carpenters. Many of our carpenters have successfully completed an MSc in Timber Building Conservation at The Weald and Downland Museum, with whom we have a close working relationship.
Good working knowledge of structural carpentry and the complexities of repairing a timber framed building are essential when preparing drawings and a schedule of repairs. If you are at the point of commissioning a professional to undertake such a job, talk to us, we are here to help and it could help set your project along the right track, saving time and money.
"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
"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
"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
"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
