The brief

Besmoke is the UK’s leading producer of natural smoke food flavouring and ingredients and occupies a 10,000 square foot, AA Grade BRC accredited factory which is dominated by a 12-ton capacity smoking plant that operates continually.

Launched in 2004, the company is now investing heavily in research and development and factory capacity in order to keep up with growing demand. Having acquired additional industrial units next door to the existing factory, that had previously been used for a car workshop, the company engaged Oakley in 2018 as its trusted partner to bring the space up to modern, food grade production-ready factory premises.

Our solution

Timescales were the critical factor from the outset. Oakley pride themselves in their agility and ability to mobilise project delivery teams quickly to respond to tight timescales. Besmoke had specialist machinery on order, and wanted the factory to be operational from the turn of the new year, giving a window of just 6 weeks to transform the space. Oakley mobilised teams immediately, and started on site within 4 days from receiving instruction from the client.


The Oakley project delivery team worked closely with the client to ensure the required timescales were met. The flexibility of the Oakley project delivery team was also demonstrated when a number of additional works and changes were requested by the client throughout the course of the project, which were delivered with minimum disruption to timescales.
