Business as Usual While We Deliver Your Project
We understand the unique challenges faced by small and medium sized food manufacturers and that there is a fine margin between success and failure.
A common challenge experienced by growing SME food manufacturers is that their resources are thinly spread, with owners and directors often wearing multiple hats and taking a hands-on role in the business. This, coupled with a lack of expertise or experience in designing and building food factories, means that you may be left wondering where to start.
With a partner like Oakley, your only time commitment is in key decisions with a weekly meeting with your dedicated contracts manager, freeing up your time and headspace to focus on your business.
We know it’s a significant financial commitment that you are about to undertake. Can you afford to get it wrong?
There are several unexpected pitfalls which can arise during an expansion project which can cause serious delays in the project schedule, result in spiraling costs, and make your expansion project an extremely stressful experience!
Our simple approach provides a clear road map to completion of your project, and ensures cost certainty from the outset, giving you peace of mind that the project will be delivered on-spec, on time and on budget. All with minimal disruption, allowing you to focus on what you do best – running and growing your business!
7-Step System for Efficient Food Processing Factory Design
Initial Consultation:This is so we can introduce ourselves, discuss your specific requirements and ascertain whether we are the right fit for your project.
Site Visit: We operate across the entire UK and one of our specialists will be able to arrange a convenient time for a site visit with you, to review the site before work commences.
Scoping, Concept Design and Planning: Based on the initial discussions we are able to translate your requirements into initial concept designs or architectural designs for planning (if required).
Detailed Design: Once the site visit and survey are complete, our design team will work collaboratively alongside you over a period of 6-8 weeks to bring your vision to life. You will then be presented with a full set of detailed construction drawings alongside a comprehensive scope of works and fixed proposal for the build and fit-out phases. This detailed design pack is yours to share if you wish to get alternative quotes.
Work Begins:If you are confident in our turnkey approach and happy with the design, we can then proceed with the building and fitting out of your new food factory according to the detailed design.
Work Complete:There will be pre-determined milestones that will need to be signed off by you at each stage of the project to ensure you are 100% happy with the work being carried out.
Handover and Sign Off:Once the project is complete, any warranties, guarantees or and paperwork will be completed and handed over to you, seamlessly, on budget, on time and always to the highest standards.
We take care of the whole project and deliver your factory with minimal disruption and stress to you, on time and on budget.
