As solid as an oak

Create the home of your dreams with Quercus, providing everything from landscaping to building.

If you think of a beautiful home built from decades of experience, you can also think of Quercus Building Solutions Limited.

Quercus, the Latin name for oak, says it all. Founding Director Dominic Francis Smith created Quercus in 2002 after a successful career as a sculptor. He found his way through initially carving granite and Portland stone to creating bespoke homes and gardens, always going that step further to build something beautiful and unique. Dominic is passionate about every aspect of each project, from the initial meeting to overseeing the final details and will be the first and last person you will see, each project being personal to him. “I feel so blessed and excited to be part of what Quercus Building Solutions has become and where we seem to be heading,” explains Dominic.

A mighty oak comes from a strong foundation and takes time to establish its roots. Similarly, Quercus has grown steadily over the past few decades to establish itself and draw from a vast knowledge pool based in the main building trades. The team has experience in complex carpentry and stone masonry from restoration and heritage projects, as well as new eco builds and passive homes, meaning you can rely on their skill and attention to detail for a wide variety of building projects.

Being an active member of The Guild of Cornish Hedgers, Quercus can also draw on the vast knowledge and experience of all the master hedgers and masons of the Guild; providing the company with a certain edge over its competitors when it comes to unique and beautiful stonework. Along the same thread, Quercus’ experience both in the UK and overseas gives another edge to its carpentry and joinery, bringing fresh knowledge and understanding to traditional techniques and promoting a forever growing knowledge of modern methods.

Just as comfortable when it comes building your perfect home, Quercus has vast experience designing and creating amazing outdoor spaces. If you’re looking for anything from a modern and contemporary space to a renaissance garden, Quercus can create it. So, if you want to create something beautiful then make sure to get in touch with the Quercus team today and start laying the foundations for the project of your dreams.
