Paragon Oak, Yorkshire’s leading bespoke oak framed construction company, is celebrating major business growth after increasing turnover by a third, and acquiring a trio of high profile commercial projects across the region in the past year.
The Mirfield-based specialist construction company, was founded in 2011, and delivers high-end commercial and domestic projects across the north of England and beyond.
In the past 12-months, Paragon Oak has significantly expanded its commercial offering, winning major projects for some of the region’s best-known hospitality businesses, including a new entrance and reception area to renowned restaurant, The 3 Acres in Huddersfield, a unique and substantial fitness centre at the prestigious Iveridge Hall health club in Leeds, as well as most recently, a new bar area in the Kirkburton-based gastropub and popular wedding venue, the Woodman Inn.
Alongside this, ongoing demand for oak framed buildings continue to grow as consumers wake up to the scope, flexibility and beauty of this premium and natural product – a trend at odds with ongoing economic uncertainty and stagnating property prices.
This has led to Paragon’s turnover growing by a third in the last 12-months, while the team has also expanded, with two new oak framing specialists, and a workshop carpenter joining the company, along with increased workshop capacity at our Mirfield base, to cope with demand.
Paul Brierley, founder and MD of Paragon Oak, comments: “Oak is a premium product, with wonderful properties, providing a strong and distinctive building structure. To do this material justice requires an extremely specialist skills-set, something we have continued to grow over the past few years. Customer demand is continually growing for oak framed buildings, and we are extremely well positioned to take advantage of this, in both commercial and domestic markets. We look forward to continuing our upward trajectory.”
