About us

OCL came into being in 2007 to fulfil the need for a reliable contractor that provided a quality service.

Over a decade later it is continuing to evolve. OCL has become OCL Group, expanding its offer by investing in further capabilities whilst retaining its core values. It’s great to be able to say that we still have the same core team that we started with – and that everyone throughout the company remains as motivated and excited about continuing our journey.

OCL Group is a specialised contractor operating across the civil engineering, building and mechanical and electrical sectors of the construction industry. We offer a comprehensive range of services, both as a contractor and subcontractor, including the supply of manpower. The group has four key divisions – Civil Engineering, Building, M&E Services and Recruitment and Labour Supply – that work together on a fully integrated and collaborative basis.

Vision and success

OCL was formed to offer a reliable, personal and bespoke service delivering high-quality work to its clients. Attaining that vision can be attributed to ‘raising standards’, carefully selecting the staff we need, providing them with appropriate and ongoing training and integrating them into the company’s culture – our core values of building a business based on creating and maintaining long-term partnerships with our clients; of not compromising on quality, health and safety and of building a reputation that is based on expertise, knowledge and performance. We aspire to become a ‘trusted extension’ of our clients’ own teams: we are delighted when we succeed to that position.

One of the keys to our success is that we prefer to carry out as much work as possible in-house, using our own experienced staff and tried-and-tested facilities to self-deliver projects for our clients. Our staff are highly committed, motivated and have the capability to work throughout a project’s lifecycle, from the initial surveys and estimates through to commissioning and operational delivery.
