Oakworth Homes are well known for being one of the leading timber frame companies in the UK for the manufacture, supply, delivery and erection of our timber frames for domestic dwellings, predominantly for our self-build clients.
However, we are also heavily involved with commercial timber framed projects, where we work closely with our developer clients and project architects, to design, engineer, manufacture and erect our timber frame structures, also incorporating our steelwork engineering, as required.
We have recently completed erecting our timber frame structure for a 5 storey apartment building in Coulsdon. Our timber frame was erected onto a concrete / steel ground floor structure, which will have commercial use and our timber frame has created the apartments above, with balcony areas, structural openings to allow large, glazed elements to be introduced and also structural decks to accommodate outdoor space for the top floor penthouses.
Projects we are currently involved with, in the development / engineering stages, include:
- A 6 storey apartment building that we will shortly be erecting in London.
- A project in Sutton, where we are identifying an engineered frame solution, to allow new apartments to be created on top of an existing, 3 storey building.
- A scheme to create 2 large penthouses with generous outdoor decked areas, onto an existing 6 storey apartment building in central London
- A project to create a 4 storey apartment building in Essex, from a structure which was formally a multi-storey car park!
So if you have a commercial development project in mind, contact us at Oakworth and we can bring our extensive, engineering solution knowledge to your scheme.
