April 14, 2011 - PRLog -- OAK frame construction techniques look set to change the face of the traditional British conservatory offering a new level of style and comfort and adding value to the buildings they adjoin, according to Jonathan Riddle, MD of ARC Design, a leading Cheshire architectural company.

For in addition to being solid and attractive, oak framed conservatories and garden rooms, unlike their traditional predecessors, will not cause their occupants to freeze in winter and swelter in summer, added the architectural design expert.

Mr Riddle was speaking during a visit to the Winsford HQ of oak framed buildings specialists OAQ Ltd where chairman Mr Allan Stockwin revealed the company had received many inquiries for conservatories and garden rooms.

“I can see why the oak framed conservatory would be appealing to architects and property developers who have to ensure their designs comply with a raft of new rules and regulations,” added Mr Riddle, whose ten years old award-winning Hale-based company has designed some of the most stylish and desirable properties in South Manchester and Cheshire

“Oak frames are a totally sustainable material, which will appeal to environmentalists and it is a wood that has a degree of built in fire resistance,” added Mr Riddle. “But the main advantage is that adding an oak-framed conservatory or garden room to a property will almost certainly add real value to the whole building which hasn’t necessarily been the case with the more traditional conservatories.

“My company offers both traditional and contemporary architectural design to clients and over the years we have worked on an eclectic range of projects and used a variety of materials. I can see OAQ’s services being in demand from those individuals who want their new home or office to make a style statement.”

Mr Stockwin, who launched his new company late last year, said OAQ –the ‘Q’ comes from quercus, the Latin for oak – was capable of delivering complete oak-framed buildings for both domestic and business clients as well as extensions or a range of oak-made products from its specialist workshops at St Asaph, North Wales.

He said: “Of course, I agree with Jonathan’s view that the style offered by traditional oak framed buildings is a compelling factor but I also believe that the expertise we have in-house at our woodyard makes our service stand out from the rest.”
