Long standing member


Border Oak was incorporated in 1980 - pioneering the revival of green oak framing across the UK and worldwide.

We are a family run business and employ more than 120 experienced and passionate staff, with unrivalled knowledge and unique skills. Our aim is to design and construct the finest oak frames possible, whilst offering exceptional service and unbeatable value.

We have an innate appreciation of oak framing and the wider construction industry, developing over four decades into true market leaders. We believe in preserving heritage skills through innovation, and our portfolio is testament to the wide spectrum of projects we have delivered.

All of our buildings are bespoke - designed to reflect your site, your budget and your aspirations. We respond accordingly and appropriately to individual circumstances, utilising our experience to provide solutions and our vision to create buildings of character.

We can provide a full build and project management service, but are also happy to work with appointed architects and builders. All of our frames are made by hand, using traditional medieval carpentry techniques, so we are not limited or restrained by machine or computer. However, we do use advanced Computer Aided Design (CAD) packages to design our buildings and ensure we meet and exceed all industry standards and regulations.

We build between 50-75 projects each year, and our portfolio includes homes, commercial buildings, museums, garages, retail and education buildings as well as porches and potting sheds.

Our reputation is unsurpassed.
