As a forward thinking business we consider the environment and sustainability initially at the bidding stage but then continue to review and revise our practices within the project life cycle with the aim of implementing further improvements wherever practice.

More often that not our clients have expectations and their own goals to meet (such as targets for waste reduction) so it is important that as a contractor we can offer synergy with those needs. This may come from identifying opportunities for sustainability within the built environment or providing solutions for waste reduction, such as the reuse of excavation materials or using products with a high recycled content.

We continuously seek new initiatives from the civils, construction and rail industries, keeping up to date through on-line media, networking and attending events. By doing this our clients are assured that we are offering the best possible service, with both the environment and their budgets in mind.

Our goal is to deliver packages of work on time, making sure it’s right first time and within budget. By doing so we will ensure that we are not using more materials or polluting the environment than is necessary.

We have an objective to minimise our carbon emissions and support local communities by employing operatives from within the areas that we working. We also encourage operatives to travel by alternative means (such as cycling or public transport where possible) rather than driving. We support a number of local up and coming sports men and women through sponsorship. We also work in partnership with local charities.

    I would like to thank all at OCL for a great job carried out by your staff over the 52 hour week end possession at Hockley station. The Pre planning meetings and OCL's early engagement with Braybrook really helped the smooth delivery of this project. A very professional job was done right first time, with no snags, we certainly look forward to using OCL in collaboration on future projects.
