What does the construction phase of a turnkey project look like?

19 June 2023

You may well be worried about the potential disruption an expansion project could bring and how this could impact on your company’s growth.

Perhaps you’re feeling daunted at the prospect of juggling an expansion project alongside running your business.

We recognise that when manufacturers turn to us they are making one of the biggest financial investments in their business. Because of this they simply can’t afford to get it wrong.

Another 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. 

The food manufacturers Oakley work with see the value in a turnkey approach. They want the project to be done right first time by a reliable, conscientious partner that will treat them as their number one client.

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. This enables you to completely step back from the project, allowing you to focus on running and growing your business, knowing it’s in safe hands.

We take care of the whole project and deliver your factory with minimal disruption and stress to you, on time and on budget.

Whether it’s an empty warehouse space that you need to transform into a new production area or a full ground up factory build, we work closely with you to understand your business and tailor our designs to meet your production and manufacturing needs.

We will take care of:

  • Groundworks
  • Steel Frame Fabrication and Erection
  • External Cladding and Rainwater Goods
  • Hygienic Walling, Flooring and Drainage
  • Civils and Drainage
  • Resin Flooring
  • White Wall Panelling
  • Mechanical and Electrical
  • Refrigeration
  • Cold Room Installations
  • Fit Out of Auxiliary Areas, such as staff welfare facilities and offices.

Oakley’s strong reputation is built on solid food factory design experience coupled with a unique turnkey approach that removes the stress and risks from food factory expansion. Get in touch with us for a no-obligation chat about your plans and we’ll advise what we think is best for you.
