Our History

an ongoing story………………………………..

From the beginning to current day

The beginning...

The beginning....

Dexter our Director, began his career in oak timber framing as an apprentice and after passing his training steadily improved his knowledge and skills to become the workshop manager. After gaining several more years knowledge and understanding of the trade he decided to launch Premier Oak Buildings. Dexter has been working with Oak for over 12 years now and combined with the years of experience within our extended team we offer over 50 years wealth of knowledge.

Buddy our Mascot

Buddy our Mascot

A constant companion in our office is Buddy who is our company mascot. Buddy has been with us throughout and enjoys his bed in the office where he keeps warm and cosy and keeps Louise company. Buddy also takes trips to visit our clients when the framing team are installing a frame so you may get to meet him!

Our workshop

Our workshop

The company was started at a small workshop near Taunton with just Dexter and Shaun creating frames as a 2 man team but things became much busier which facilitated a move to a larger workshop space. We moved to our new workshop which is based near Yeovil in Somerset. We soon found that the needs of the business were outgrowing the 2 man tag team of Dexter and Shaun so Louise joined as Office Manager, which meant that a purpose built office was created. Since then we have grown our framing team with 4 more framers.

Tools

Tools

The workshop is fully equipped with all of the tools needed to create all size of frame builds from a porch to a new build house and we can comfortably have 4 oak framers working together at one time which means that our client lead time on a build is fairly quick.

Client reviews

Client reviews

We have been lucky to receive great reviews from our clients Victoria Supple Working with Premier Oak has honestly been a pleasure. They are not only a lovely group of people, they are also undoubtedly exceptional at what they do. Our building offered plenty of challenges which they rose to without complaint or fuss. I have been impressed on every level and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them or use them again. Link to reviews on Google https://www.google.com/search?q=premier+oak+buildings
