Director Simon Smith has been out with the drone this morning visiting the site at Clare College Cambridge.

The new exposed oak glulam frame extension to the Old Court is nearing completion with only two weeks to go until the frame reaches the River Cam. The oak frame is made up of 963no. members with 1477no. traditional carpentry connections and roughly 7651no. screws & nails holding it all together!

The timber frame is delivered on lorries from the west of the site via the Cambridge Backs, through the College Fellow’s Garden, and over a temporary bridge spanning the River Cam.
