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.
"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
"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
"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
