Building dreams

 Surrey Oak Barns Limited have been successfully constructing oak framed buildings for the last 15 years.

 During this period our clients identified a demand for a general contractor with a professional approach to construction and as a result, in 2009, James Upfold established Upfold Construction Limited as a sister company to Surrey Oak Barns allowing the expansion of our combined service offer.

Both businesses offer a professional, seamless and multi-trade service, for all domestic projects from garaging, extensions, renovation, refurbishment and maintenance to fully finished houses, all tailored to meet our client's specific requirements.  

Surrey Oak Barns and Upfold Construction have been awarded Chartered Building Company status which identifies those businesses at a professional level that are committed to quality of product and service, integrity of conduct, and concern for clients’ needs. 

Our management team under the leadership of James Upfold have a combined industry experience in excess of 80 years.   

James' career to date spans 30 years, resulting in a broad experience across industry sectors and procurement arrangements from 'high end' residential to educational establishments and prominent commercial and public entertainment/leisure venues for 'blue chip' clients and leading project management organisations, with a career highlight undertaking a senior management role in the feasibility, design coordination, procurement and successful delivery of the London Eye Millennium Project. 

James has been a Member of the Chartered Institute of Building since 1992 and has also been a participant of the selection panel for the interview and assessment of new candidates for membership. 

The success of these businesses has been as a result of James' highly developed professional approach, experience, technical knowledge and attention to detail, thus ensuring that client's aims and aspirations are carefully determined and delivered. 

Our knowledge and confidence is derived from most industry sectors and architectural styles, enabling us to offer a complete construction services from conception to completion or supporting client's professional teams to deliver the project aims and aspirations. 

It is from this skill set that we launched Surrey Oak Barns to ensure a high level expertise was available to clients wishing to explore a traditional oak frame solution to meet their construction need.
