Book a CPD with a structural timber specialist

Carpenter Oak have been pioneers in the timber framing industry for over 35 years, championing design and craft. Our CPDs will get your staff up to speed on timber framing knowledge and practices.

We offer two CPDs.

A one-hour programme

The session covers:

  • The reasons for building in timber
  • Shrinkage and movement
  • The material
  • Interface detailing
  • Working with the idiosyncrasies of green timber
  • The design, fabrication and erection processes

This session is delivered in-person at your practice or online.

A half-day programme

This session gives a detailed insight into timber-framing methods, construction, design, and potential within today’s architecture.

The half-day programme takes place at our yards in Devon or Scotland where you’ll have a chance to see how frames are crafted and have the opportunity to speak to experienced framers and designers about the whole process.

Find out more information about both CPD programmes here.
