Archive : iWood Oak Used in Award Winning Project

Hearty Congratulations to Welland Timber Products Ltd, who recently won the prestigious John Hedgecock Memorial Award for technical excellence, achievement and innovation in joinery manufacture.

iWood Supplies Oak for Strawberry Hill Restoration ProjectThe award was presented to Managing Director Jeremy Burdett, at the British Woodworking Federation's (BWF) Annual Dinner for Welland's part in the restoration of Horace Walpole's Strawberry Hill Villa in Twickenham, London.

Working without any original drawings, Welland had to use paintings and sketches to faithfully restore the 18th century gothic villa, which was featured on the BBC2 series 'Restoration' and is a grade I listed building.

iWood is extremely proud to have supplied the Oak timber used by Welland in the project, which is part of an £8.9 million restoration of the villa by the Strawberry Hill Trust, which in 2004 was listed in the Worlds 100 Most Endangered Sites.

Ian Purkis, BWF President, said of the award "...we were all hugely impressed with the project which showed how the use of
modern manufacturing equipment can be combined with design flair, technical know-how and the
beauty and natural durability of timber to produce fine joinery."
