Dave Mowle
Co-Founder, Designer and Operations Manager

Dave is the co-founder of Oakenstone Ltd along with close friend James Probert. With 30 years of experience in the construction industry he has worked on a wide range of building projects from sky rise offices in Canary Wharf to historical Grade II listed houses in Derbyshire.

His passion is for contextual analysis – working out how best a building fits into the environment that surrounds it – so it’s no surprise that the company name is inspired by the Derbyshire landscape and the natural materials it provides.

As Oakenstone’s lead designer and value engineer, Dave meets with new clients from the outset. He assesses each job individually and then gives advice on design options, legalities, technicalities of build and timescales.

Further down the line, as Operations Manager, Dave supervises all building sites, manages the crew and liaises with the site foreman.

Originally from London, Dave moved to Derbyshire over 25 years ago. He has raised a family here, is a member of the local Parish Council of Matlock Bath and a Trustee of a Historic Building Charity. 

He loves the landscape that he lives in, is an avid climber and caver and enjoys going to Coldplay concerts.  He’s passionate about the history of buildings and is delighted to let you know that Oakenstone’s office is in the Arkwright Mills, the first ever factory in the world to have a grade I listed star.
