Bespoke Buildings and Timber Frames

Service description:


Converting your concept design into reality requires a versatile approach. Cowley Timber and Partners have 40 years experience providing our clients with the expertise to deliver their bespoke design. Aspirational buildings are always bespoke and there are hundreds of methods of delivering a unique product from structural timber.

Bespoke timber buildings are not prohibitively expensive. Often the opportunity exists to create something architecturally beautiful within difficult site restraints. Lightweight timber structures through to large structural spans often provide the solution.

Our timber frames are meticulously thought through and designed before they go to manufacture. As specialists in timber frames that are designed to be seen Cowley Timber and Partners use the best glulam timber beams on the market. We only use the strongest engineered timber and we have a careful stock selection and sourcing process to ensure our frames are of the highest quality.

Timber framing requires precision technology and we use the most up to date high performance machines for modelling and cutting. Highly engineered invisible jointing processes are used including glued in rod for the premier invisible joint. Traditional mortice and tenant methods can be applied where intricate and visual jointing is required. We design our timber frames to be stress tested to the highest structural performance.

The use of different species, beam sizes and ultra cool cladding systems combined with traditional building materials can be applied to your project wherever it may be.

We can provide permanent structures and short life span projects. We offer a well-managed, bespoke turnkey project management service. Working alongside the architect and the engineer from an early stage allows Cowley the opportunity to share its experience which can assist in buildability and cost saving. All the best ideas are born at the beginning of the project and need to be seen through to reality.

The use of modern building materials must be both attractive, sustainably sourced and deliver a contribution to the environmental agenda. Specialist products such as sapisol; our highly insulated timber sip plank panel system, are quick and easy to install and provide a quality timber solution. Sapisol can also be used as a structural roof system with high load capacity and long spans. A variety of abundant species for glulam beams are available in stock from Cowley Timber and Partners. Detailing of timber is effective whether using the most simple profiles or highly intricate carved or lasered sections.

A huge range of architectural cladding systems are at our disposal and in stock. These include our exclusive range of openlam and funlam products. The selection of the correct system is an important part of the design process and a high architectural vernacular can be achieved whether the modern or traditional look is required. Cowley Timber and Partners have a tried and tested delivery process and are waiting to assist you with your bespoke project.
