The Oakwood Group Managing Director, John Fleetwood, said:

“Our main strength is our capability and expertise in managing a wide range of multi-disciplinary projects and our unique selling point is that we are not put off by any particular location. We are backed by a broad range of skills and resources and our core business areas of design, planning and construction are interwoven to provide a cohesive framework for developing individual site solutions.”

He added:

“Over the years our staff levels have grown and we have retained a very good core of people. Within the last eight years our turnover has increased threefold, notwithstanding the challenging economic climate.

“We take a huge amount of pride in what we do, particularly as we’re so heavily involved in the design and planning process. With so many of our developments being constructed close to our headquarters, it’s fundamental that we deliver an exemplary quality built environment that is capable of standing the test of time.”
