Business as Usual While We Deliver Your Project

Running and growing your business is challenging enough without the added pressure of a fit-out or expansion project. Managing the day-to-day activities of contractors and keeping the project on program, responsibility for health and safety and associated paperwork, and dealing with the challenges and unforeseen roadblocks that inevitably arise all add together to drain internal resources and create unwanted disruption that will damage core business activities.

This is what we refer to as the ‘hidden costs, and these can have a tangible negative impact on the growth and ultimately the profitability of your business.

Oakley’s mission is to remove the stress and disruption from factory fit-out and construction projects. We do this by designing, building, and delivering your new Food Manufacturing Space from initial concept right through to handover, taking care of every single aspect of the project. Our goal is to deliver a facility that exceeds your expectations in a way that eliminates disruption from your day-to-day business activities.

Expect Complete Transparency and Prompt Communication

To deliver each project correctly the first time requires transparency and open communication. We partner with our clients and build strong working relationships, the foundation for successful project delivery. We believe in open and regular communication with clients throughout the course of their project.

Typically, our project manager will hold a weekly progress meeting to address any issues, special requirements, or changes. Together, we will discover the best solutions to minimise any disruptions or inconveniences. As part of our service, we negotiate with planning bodies, regulators, and other involved parties required for the project.

Anticipate Roadblocks

Unforeseen challenges can both cause delays and incur significant expense when carrying out capital projects. Excellent project management can make the difference between a successful project that is delivered on time and on budget, and a situation where deadlines are being missed and costs are spiralling out of control.

The Oakley team have many years of experience in delivering capital projects in the food, beverage and pharma industries. Our industry-specific expertise allows us to foresee and mitigate for common pitfalls so your project is delivered on time and on budget with minimal disruption to your business.

Take advantage of our experience. We have helped UK food and beverage manufacturers succeed and grow since 1987.
