I am Shaun and I am the office manager for Premier Oak Buildings.
I have been involved in office management for over 35 years and believe that customer service is key to the success of any business.
At the end of 2021 I was ready to semi retire and put my feet up for a while and take a well-earned rest. There I was sitting in the garden enjoying the sun when Dexter asked me to join him and manage the office side of Premier Oak Buildings.
I was delighted, a couple of hours a day in the office, paying invoices and ordering a bit of timber would suite me down to the ground. Well 12 months later and I’m busier now than I ever was, and I absolutely love it. Watching the business grow from strength to strength and imparting my knowledge wherever I can and to whoever will listen as well as learning a new set of skills. Understanding what it takes to build a timber frame home or an oak frame porch. Learning how important it is to find the correct architect or engineer who also understands oak timber framing. Learning the difference between English Oak and European oak, how oak moves and shrinks. The benefits of wooden frame homes and how sustainable oak is.
There is so much to learn and so much knowledge to pass on to others to keep this traditional method of construction alive and I am so glad I have become a part of it.
