Bartram Timber have been involved in the construction of a Chinese pagoda on an island in a new lake, accessed by a Chinese-style bridge, all as part a £12million regeneration plan in Victoria Park, in Tower Hamlets.
The open-sided building is a replica of one which stood in the park from 1847 to the 1950s. This involved securing Scandinavian wood with a proven chain of custody to satisfy the client’s demand for sustainable timber, and providing samples for approval. All the timber for this project has been fire-treated hopefully the beauty of the finished structure and its peaceful location will discourage vandalism.
In addition all the joinery work was carried out in the firm’s Hitchin yard. The majority of the work was bespoke which required complex and large timbers. As a firm Bartram Timber have the design, engineering, manufacturing and delivery capability for any timber project.
The Victoria Park project is being overseen by Contractors Geoffery Osborne Ltd, of Chichester.
