Timber engineering combines steel and timber together and provides greater design flexibility, allowing engineers to achieve more complex shapes and spans than would be possible with timber alone.
You can push the boundaries of timber frame design by introducing stainless steel. Steel provides additional strength, stiffness, and durability to the timber structure. And, steel can be used as a reinforcement material to enhance the performance of timber members, particularly in high-stress areas such as connections and joints. Steel connections can enable the construction of much larger, more complex timber structures that can span long distances.
We work in partnership with specialist engineers and architects to harness the principles of timber engineering and to innovate pioneering ways of integrating new materials and techniques into the green oak structures.
If you have a project that pushes the boundaries of timber frame design, or you’d like to create an ultra-modern aesthetic, timber engineering could be a great solution.
