We are now fully operational again, with all staff (both office and workshop) working at our premises near Bath, Somerset. As mentioned previously, our staff will come to work only if they are asymptomatic. Each morning we check all staff members temperatures, and have protocols set in place should anyone show any symptoms.

We are following all Government recommendations regarding social distancing and cleanliness, including a regular cleaning rota for all communal areas. We have installed sanitizer points throughout the building, and everyone is encouraged to regularly clean their hands throughout the day.

In order to keep everyone safe, if you wish to visit our workshop/office, please contact us beforehand – calling 01225 789978 or emailing office@englishoakbuildings.com. When visiting, please adhere to social distancing rules and use the hand sanitizer provided. Where possible, all meetings will be held in well ventilated areas.

When the team are working on-site, they will follow strict guidelines on safe and effective Covid-19 working practices, and have had appropriate training in relevant health & safety.

Updated 17.04.2020

Following the Government advice to manufacturers, we are planning to resume production in our workshop, week commencing 20.04.2020. To maintain social distancing our office staff will remain working from home, continuing to design and support our customers and timber framers. 

We have set in place stringent social distancing measures and a regular cleaning regime throughout the working day. Our staff will come to work only if they are asymptomatic. They have been advised to take their temperature each morning before leaving the house. If it is elevated and/or they have any other relevant symptoms, they will self-isolate for the required number of days stated by the Government, and seek to have a test. 

When the team are working on-site they will wear appropriate masks and will have effective hand disinfectant equipment, which they have been trained to use correctly. If our team are coming to site and you would like to discuss any particular protocol before they arrive, please do not hesitate to contact us.

 In order to keep everyone safe, please do not come to our workshop, but do call 01225 789978 or email office@englishoakbuildings.com with your enquiries/orders. All meetings with clients, architects, builders and others will take place by video link or phone call where possible.

Finally, we would like to wish you, your family and friends all the very best. Stay safe.


We are proud of our wide range of Projects
