Commercial Timber Frame Structures
Experienced Timber Frame Commercial Builders
As with all our heavy timber frame projects, we work closely with each of our clients to transform their dream concept into reality, involving them in each step of the process to ensure the final results exceed their expectations. Timber frame construction, due to its structural integrity, strength and durability and energy efficiency, is particularly suited to commercial projects which are usually subject to the wear and tear of more foot traffic than the average residential timber frame build.
Opening day for any timber frame commercial structure is always satisfying as there is generally a large crowd waiting for the grand opening, and being present to experience the awe and wonder on their faces as they enter the building for the first time makes all the hard work meaningful and rewarding.
