As well as traditional shipbuilding, rigging and restoration, T. Nielsen & Company has also developed a worldwide reputation for other projects providing film and TV studios with specialist skills when marine structures and boats are required on set.
But it doesn't stop there. T. Nielsen & Company can work on virtually any project involving wood and traditional skills. Our experienced teams of well trained, qualified craftsmen can bring their expertise to bear on projects, often unusual, ranging from indoor and outdoor sculptures and structures to medieval bridges - even a cauldron mount fit for a Queen!

At short notice our engineering team installed and commissioned all the mechanical and electrical systems, including drive motors, in Gloriana – the Queen's Row Barge. We also designed and built a barrel, made up of 21 native species of timber, which housed the gas bottles and served as the mount for the Olympic cauldron. She is now on display at the Henley Rowing Museum.
