We have many years experience in the supply of large section structural timber for a wide range of applications.
The most popular and traditional material is fresh sawn oak which is cut to order and used for a variety of purposes including the construction of new timber framed buildings and the restoration of historic properties. We have supplied oak for many large restoration projects including Rochester Castle, The Archbishops Palace in Maidstone and Ightham Mote.
Structural oak is also used in contemporary architecture. A stunning example of this is the recently completed Watermark Place in the City of London for which we supplied oak in lengths up to 9m long for use in the support columns of the sun screen louvres on the front of the building.
British Douglas fir is a softwood that can be supplied in large sections and long lengths making it an excellent and lower cost alternative to oak for construction.
We also supply a range of tropical hardwoods including balau, ekki, greenheart and opepe. These species are often specified for sea defence and other applications where their excellent natural durability and strength is required. These hardwoods are now becoming available with environmental certification.
All of the structural timber that we supply can be visually strength graded by our TRADA Certificated graders.
