With over 30 years’ experience in the design of timber frame buildings we can provide a full structural design appraisal of sustainable timber engineering projects. Wood has been used as a building material for centuries. However, with the introduction of steel and concrete as construction materials, timber became less popular. This was due to concrete and steel’s superior qualities pertaining to fire and durability.

Now though, we know that timber has huge potential as a building material. There is more to it than chopping down a tree and milling it. Wood can be processed to make hybrid structures that are extremely reliable, and timber is often the preferred building material for modular construction because it is light-weight, low-cost, durable, and sustainable. Timber also has the capability to be a renewable and certified resource that provides a viable low-impact supply chain for construction. It is a highly versatile and sustainable material and can be re-used and recycled as well as being easy to build and de-construct.

We can offer help and advice on any projects of any size and complexity. We take pride in delivering Timber Engineering solutions that meet the most challenging of designs and construction criteria. Our extensive portfolio ranges from simple extensions through to multi-storey blocks of flats and school projects and offering structural design services to market leading timber frame manufacturers.
