Listed Building Works
Broad Oaks Construction are experts in heritage and listed buildings works on Grade I or Grade II listed buildings. We are able to sympathetically rejuvenate, adapt or carry out extension works on the building, to realise your design ideas and requirements. Listed buildings works have to be carried out with the correct planning permission consent and within the constraints of the existing building design; a bespoke approach is obgligatory. Our craftsman have a wealth of experience in this field, and our attention to detail in the implementation of bespoke construction solutions is based upon this experience.

Whether we’re requested to carry out a full modernisation project of a home that needs updating or to work on an historically significant building, our craftsman have the level of expertise required. Many of the renovation projects that we have worked on have required particular skills that are rare among today’s construction experts. Construction methods hundreds of years ago were very different from those employed nowadays, but there is also the need to ensure any renovation work carried out will stand the test of time. Working with Broad Oaks Construction grants you access to our professional specialist engineers and their knowledge.
Our widely experienced team of craftsman possess the required skills, expertise and experience to handle construction projects from blank canvas to completion. At Broad Oaks Construction, we take great pride in our ability to realise the design ideas of clients and are able to confidently advise when it comes to the design and construction of a building which is sympathetic and in harmony with its surroundings. Different areas of the country often have different building styles governed by the locally available materials. Where a building needs to be demolished and rebuilt, we can incorporate design features of the previous building whilst modernising and improving upon the design and respecting buildings local to it.
Oak Garages and Porches
Our team of carpentry experts have been building oak garages and porches for many years. These impressive, stylish construction projects are often selected to allow the building to blend into a rural setting. We use the highest quality green oak timbers fitted together perfectly using traditional jointing techniques resulting in a stunning finished build. We use tried and tested construction methods and modern computer generated design techniques resulting in an oak frame building that is finished to the very highest standard. Our bespoke design service allows you the opportunity to work with our team to make your oak frame building ideas a reality.
Stone Work / Lime Mortar Specialist Work
We often work on projects requiring the use of traditional building techniques of which stone work and lime mortar specialist work are just two aspects. These techniques were used over the course of many centuries and lime mortar’s effectiveness as a building material has endured due to its remarkable durability. This previously time-honoured building technique was based on local tradition and trade knowledge, vindicated by the surprising number of old buildings that remain standing. We can assist with the maintenance of historical buildings constructed using these techniques and have many years experience in the use of traditional construction methods.
We are widely experienced and have built quite a reputation in working on rural properties which have bats roosting in the roof space. As we have gained this experience, we have found that more and more clients are enquiring about specially designed and built bat lofts in their properties, as it has long been illegal to intentionally kill, injure or take any bat or to recklessly damage, destroy or block up their roosts or even to disturb them. We work closely within DEFRA (Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs) guidelines with regards to bat roosts, and we can help clients to live in harmony with bats by minimising any disturbance they may cause.
