Glenalmond Timber has vast knowledge and expertise with regard to most types of timber structures.

Our experience allows us to help and advise our clients from the outset, ensuring that they are fully informed of all options and thus ensuring customer satisfaction.

Post and beam construction is a particular favourite of ours as it can be used as the main structural skeletal support system or for design features such as roof supports or corbel beams. Post and beam will often require metal plates, traditional joints, wooden dowels or even stainless steel fasteners to join the different elements together which we can design and provide in house. It all depends on the desired aesthetic.

The minimum section sizes of timber required will be dependent on species, length of clear span, spacing between each element and loading criteria.

Post and beams can be made of Glulam or solid timber sections from species such as Douglas Fir, Scottish Larch or European Oak.

We manufacture and supply post and beam structures to some of the largest household names within the building industry. Our design team can draw up details in standard PDF and CAD files for the self-builders, through to architectural practices.

No project is too big or small and our skilled workforce will welcome you to our factory to discuss your project or even see it being formed.

For more information on species, measurements and our range of post and beams please don't hesitate to get in contact with us  


Thank you - The help you gave us was truly amazing - you said yes to what seemed an impossible request in a heartbeat and what a difference it made - The house looked beautiful and we're all so proud of what everyone achieved - the family were utterly overwhelmed by the sheer force of goodwill that everyone showed them

It was an easy choice to move to using Glenalmond Timber’s floor joist system. It gives an improved specification for many aspects of the build, including acoustics, ease of installation, lack of bounce in the floor as well of course as cost effectiveness. A great all-round product, it’s a lot more than just a joist and the level of service from Fraser has been a joy. Whenever you deal with people such as that, the business process becomes a pleasure
