Continued investment pays dividenDs for longstanding Border Oak client

Working from a detailed client brief, Border Oak designed and built this spectacular Vistor Centre with offices, display spaces and client meeting rooms to support Majestic Trees' continued growth and diversification. Along with the main barn we also designed and built the owners' home, Estate Manager's cottage, storage buildings, garden structures, display buildings and additional worker's accommodation.

The large scale and multi-faceted scheme has transformed the overall site and helps showcase and celebrate Majestic Trees' amazing products and services. The bespoke buildings are settling into their beautifully landscaped surroundings - edged by acres of outstanding mature trees. A range of natural materials was specified including green oak, lime render, weatherboarding, handmade clay tiles and bricks. A quietly contemporary design approach was taken to allow for large areas of glazing and to suit the semi industrial context.

Majestic Trees recently provided Border Oak with mature trees for our Award winning Custom Build development of 7 houses in Kingsland (Mortimer Meadow) and will be working with us to provide landscaping on all our future custom build projects in Herefordshire and beyond.

We filmed the process of tree planting at Mortimer Meadow, and you can watch the film via our Vimeo page.
