Educational Projects

We have completed a variety of buildings for educational projects, ranging from libraries and archives, to music halls and classrooms. Materials vary from solid Oak and Douglas Fir beams, to Oak or Siberian Larch glulam. In delivering these building we have utilised a variety of structural systems including traditional Post and Beam Frame, Reciprocal Frame and Stress Skin Diagrid, to name a few.

In one project where we were required to build a rain-screen for a new classroom complex, Siberian Larch was selected for its slow growth and close grain, ensuring excellent durability. Some of the most durable timbers are in fact softwoods grown in northerly latitudes where a short growing season ensures a dense resinous timber capable of great longevity in class 3 exposure.

Timber offers a huge pallet of colour, texture and properties, making it capable of delivering unique and beautiful buildings exploiting the natural beauty of the material. If you have a project requiring imagination, design flair and craftsmanship talk to us, we are here to help.

"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

"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

"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."

"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

"I wanted to drop you a quick note to show my appreciation for your guys efforts today; they were a pleasure to have around the house and worked hard to get the frame up today."
