Border Oak are able to provide full Building Regulation and Construction drawings and documents and incorporate industry warranty compliance criteria as standard- working closely with Building Control Departments and your chosen warrenty provider throughout. We can handle all of this for you before during and post completion - liaising with the authorities, arranging site visits, providing documentation and certifications.  As national specialists in green oak framing and SIPs construction (we are a Kingspan TEK Delivery Partner) we are able to offer added value.

For complete construction packages our clients are able to obtain an NHBC warranty as Border Oak are an A1 rated Premium Member, having not had a claim against our work.

We have been using versions of our infill panel for over 30 years. It comprises a complex, multi-layered system designed to ensure the house is water tight and exceptionally thermal, but also allows the oak frame to move naturally without compromise.  This panel fits within the oak framing in a traditional exposed oak frame and is finished with lime render (or brick slips) externally and internally the panel is plastered. Our unique weatherproofing system provides an effective solution to the natural shrinkage of the green oak frame.

We are the only company to have 40 years of successful application for our infill panel system and are the first to have full NHBC (National House Building Council) compliancy and TRADA (Timber Research And Development Association) approval.

We are also adept at using softwood framing systems and traditional brick and block methods on our buildings when appropriate.


All of our construction systems are Building Regulations and NHBC compliant, and due to our claim free record we have attained a Premium rating with the NHBC.
