Carpenter hits the right notes

The timber frame being constructed

Carpenter Oak & Woodland has finished work on the frame for the new Camery building at Wells Cathedral

Designed for choir practice and musical education, the building incorporates a green oak frame (see pp66-67).

From the exterior, this frame will match the pitch of the existing buildings, but on the interior creates a much steeper roof line to achieve the style architects Pucell Miller Triton were after.

Andy Parker, Carpenter Oak & Woodland sales manager, said architects are often reticent about using green timber “as they feel it is less predictable than other buildings such as steel or concrete”.

“But as sustainability comes to the fore, we have seen more interest both from architects and private clients who relish the challenge of creating bespoke work from a natural material,” he added.
