Rob Ainscow started Shires Oak Buildings in 2004 having previously worked for one of the biggest oak framed house builders in the UK. His (initial) intention was to provide a more complete service to customers that not only delivered the very best in design and construction of oak frames but also all the associated works that are required to take a project from conception to completion, thus giving clients a one-stop shop. This is still a rarity within the oak frame industry.

Managing director Robert Baldwin joined Shires Oak Buildings in 2005. He brought an invaluable skill set and wealth of experience both from his 40 years of ‘hands-on’ work in the construction industry and his oak framing knowledge. He very much leads from the front and expects exceptionally high standards and commitment from the rest of the team.

The Shires Oak Buildings team are experts in every aspect of the design and building process, and you can feel confident in our ability to take your project from start to finish. We will discuss your needs in full, providing 3D models and drawings to help you visualise the possibilities. We are also happy to submit planning applications to save you the headache!

We will then manage completion of groundworks, or can work closely with your own contractors. Our skilled team will assemble the oak frame of your structure ready for roofing. Because we are experienced in civil engineering and roofing as well as oak frame construction 80% of our projects are what we describe as ‘complete works’.
