we are experts in designing and building the piping systems that carry our water, gas, oil and waste. They are involved
in every aspect of the creation of these piping systems. Piping Engineers first draw the blueprints for the system, and
then they assist in selecting the materials that will be used to build the pipes and accompanying components.


Carpentry is one of the oldest skilled trades and is still widely required in modern construction. It involves the cutting, shaping and installation of wood (timber) for buildings and other structures.

Carpentry is often part of the ‘first fix’ of timber components in the construction of roofs, floors, walls and other timber-framed constructions. It is also often part of ‘second fix’ works, such as the construction of skirting boards, architraves, doors, and so on. Carpenters may also required to prepare shuttering (formwork into which concrete is poured), building stairs, installing door and window frames, and so on.

Types of carpenter

Carpenters often specialise in one or two areas, allowing them to develop and hone their skills accordingly, in particular where they tend to work on larger projects. Some of the different types of carpenter include:

  • Rough carpenter: Framing, formwork, roofing and other structural work.
  • Joister: Lays floor joists onto which a floor surface is fixed.
  • Trim carpenter: Specialises in mouldings and trims, such as mantles, skirting boards), and other ornamental work.
  • Cabinet maker: Make cabinets as well as other furniture such as dressers, wardrobes, and so on.
  • Ship’s carpenter: Specialise in ship and boat building.
  • Framer: Specialise in the framework of buildings.
  • Roofer: Specialise in the rafters, beams and trusses of roof construction.

A joiner, or finish carpenter, is typically not considered to be a carpenter (although there is some confusion and overlap between the use of the terms). Joiners generally specialise in lighter and more ornamental work than that done by a carpenter. This includes fine woodworking, fittings, doors and windows, furniture, details, and so on. Joiners typically work in a workshop where the intricate detailing and formation of various joints is made easier by using non-portable machinery. Carpenters on the other hand typically work on construction sites.
