With all this great weather, dry days and lots of sunlight work is progressing well on site at Vale Crematorium. Buckland Timber have been commissioned to manufacture and install a Gothic arch inspired Siberian Larch, glulam portal frame. The photograph shows the scale of these huge glulam components – in comparison to the framework the diggers look very small indeed!
The recent summer weather has helped our photography look even more idyllic, depicting the completed private swimming pool commission. We manufactured and supplied a beautifully detailed portal frame which was installed to construct a single pitched, flat roof structure. The design showcases the projecting beam ends and T&G soffit – giving the outside of the building a striking colour contrast between natural and man-made materials.
We are very pleased to announce that the Boilerhouse Café has received a Civic Trust commendation. After a comprehensive and rigorous judging process, sixty projects have been selected to receive either an Award or Commendation at the 2018 Civic Trust Awards Ceremony. Buckland Timber’s contribution to the construction of the Boilerhouse Café at the Royal Holloway University is part of one of the award winning teams.

Roca Gallery – London SW6 2PY – 9th February to 9th May 2018
The exhibition focuses on the most significant timber and glulam projects carried out to date world-wide, interviewing engineers, architects and designers looking forward to where wood will ultimately determine the shape and form new types of buildings and spaces.
The exhibition showcases examples of completed projects which sit alongside more ambitious concept and research proposals, showcasing what is possible today, and what may be possible in the future – with changing building codes and new thinking by developers, governments and the construction industry – for the cities of tomorrow.
Michael Green Architecture’s proposed 35-story wooden skyscraper for Paris.
Among the projects featured are Treet (The tree), Artec AS’ 14-storey modular timber-framed apartment block in central Bergen, Norway, made from glulam and CLT; and Waugh Thistleton’s 2017 Dalston Lane in Hackney, currently the world’s largest CLT building: a ten-storey, 121-unit development made entirely of engineered timber.
After a discrete few days off to celebrate Christmas and the new year (and to let the dust settle in the workshop) we have returned suitably refreshed for another year of straight, bent, curved, spliced, bolted and flitched beams.
We wish all of our customers a prosperous 2018 and are looking forward to working on new, exciting, challenging projects during the forthcoming year.
Visitors have been flocking to see the Winter Wonderland created in London’s Hyde Park. Nestled neatly in the park you can find one of our recent projects – a small (but beautifully formed) space to meet for a seasonal drink. Winter Wonderland is open until the first of January, so if you have not visited you only have a few days left.
Visitors enjoy the temporary glulam space designed, manufactured and installed by Buckland Timber.
The Buckland timber team were very busy in the approach to the festive season bending beams and jointing timber to construct a beautiful glulam building for the Winter Wonderland attraction in London’s Hyde Park. If you visit see if you can find us (clue: we are tucked away nicely behind the Dog and Duck).
We had some great feedback from the visitors to our stand at the Birmingham NEC Timber Expo earlier this month. Lots of interest in our work and specifically our ‘case studies’. With this in mind, we will be collating a number of ‘case studies’ into a fact file for prospective customers. So visit the website regularly for updates…
Wednesday 11th October – 9:00 – 10.00pm on Channel 4.
Situated in the beautiful Blackdown Hills (on the Somerset and Devon border), Buckland Timber assist in one of the most ambitious home projects ever seen on the television show. Bucklands ability to manufacture and supply a range of curved beams enabled the dream project to come into fruition.
As we continue to develop our project portfolio we thought it would be valuable for prospective clients, designers and architects to see ‘in detail’ how Buckland Timber manage and coordinate our projects. Our fact sheets document a range of projects from basic portal frames to complex experimental structures – detailing our design, manufacture and installation processes.
