We want to work closely with Architects to build a relationship that is lasting and produces repeat work. Our heritage goes back over 150 years and we can use this expertise to find a solution for you. We have a dedicated team member that can meet you to discuss your project and ensure that suitable species and grades are selected. We can produce mouldings and using the latest CNC technology, we can machines intricate products.

To give an idea of the level of detail we work to the following details the areas that we have developed.

Certification

Chain of Custody for both PEFC, FSC and Grown in Britain, enabling us to supply certificated timber where supply is available. More information can be seen on our Certified Timber page.

Responsible Purchasers

Something we like to think we have always been. But to formalise the claim we are members of the Timber Trade Federations Responsible Purchasing Policy. This is a mandatory requirement of membership. We are audited annually and you can download our current certificate on our certification page. This meets the European Timber Regulations, which mandates all suppliers of timber in the UK to ensure that their timber is legal to place on the European Markets.

Samples

We offer samples within an agreed criteria

  • That we have knowledge of the project in hand
  • We know the location
  • Who the contractors are
  • We know the volumes of product involved

Machine Profile Work

We are able to create the tooling and mould profiles in house. For new profiles or to match existing. It must be noted that some very old profiles would have been moulded by hand and may not be able to be exactly replicated on a machine.

Fire

We are able to work within fire treatment requirements where the product is suitable to treat.

Textured/Sandblasted

We have access to processes that enable timber to be further textured by sandblasting the surfaces to enhance the grain. This process removes part of the softer grain and leaves the latewood in the growth ring as a slightly raised profile. This process also removes any unwanted marks and is normally undertaken from a sawn finish.

Durability/Longevity

We have access to various species and treatment systems that will provide an enhanced life span of the product to specific end use applications.

Alternatives

We will work with you to identify possible alternative species that may be more beneficial to the satisfactory completion of your project.

Site Visit

We are prepared to visit your site to assist with the project. We also welcome you visiting us at our site to build a relationship. Once we have built that relationship, we are sure that we will work together on many projects.

  • Supplying well air dried beam
  • Fresh sawn beam graded to BS5756
  • Brace & Jowel cutting
  • Oak Dowels – timber nails
  • Split Chestnut laths
  • Oak or Chestnut shakes

Gates & Fencing

We pride ourselves on our bespoke hardwood gates. Within reason, we can manufacture most timber gates. Existing gates can be replicated. We can make ornamental topped posts and bollards. We are able to supply and erect fences of all types using our in house teams. As members of the Fencing Contractors Association, we have ensured that our teams have the relevant safety certification. We work with major construction and house builders in Southern England.

CPET

The Central Point of Expertise for Timber procurement.

This is the UK Governments advisory service on timber procurement. We have made use of CPET’s seminars, and fully understand the requirements for government and local authority work, and the need for identifiably sustainable products. This has now been adopted by the Timber Trade Federation who run seminars periodically to help buyers understand the requirements.

Tree to Project

As traditional sawmillers and timber merchants we take the timber from the tree to finished product. We fully understand all of the processes along the way, and we care about the timber and try to ensure that we maximise the yield out of our timber, and therefore minimise wastage.
