Oakleaf provides high quality building construction and development and as well as employing a highly skilled workforce, has a large Apprenticeship programme and holds a reputation for employing and developing young people particularly in trades such as bricklaying, carpentry and electrical work.
We created the Garage Development Programme which transforms old derelict garage sites into new build, social housing developments for The Community Housing Group. These sites are generally unused and in derelict condition and are developed into highly desirable new build houses, more cost effectively than using external main contractors.
We have developed our own dedicated department that specialise in these small garage site schemes, providing employment training opportunities to local people, as well as being a keen advocate of the apprentice scheme, offering work experience to the unemployed and school leavers. As a member of The Community Housing Group, we have been recognised as one of the Top 100 Apprenticeship employers for the last 4 years.
Considerate Constructors Scheme
We are keen advocates of the Considerate Constructors Scheme which seeks to improve the image of the construction industry by striving to promote best practice in construction, under the Code.
The scheme looks at targeting several areas:
- Care about appearance of the site, internally and externally
- Respect within the local community and the impact to their lives
- Protecting the environment
- Securing high levels of safety to the workforce and the public
- Valuing the workforce, their wellbeing and development needs
Each site is marked in accordance to the scheme and applies to all registered sites, companies and suppliers regardless of size, type or location.
We have achieved some excellent scores, with our highest being 42 out of 50 with some very positive feedback from the assessors and local residents.

Our team can complete a simple safety check and fit carbon monoxide testers that could potentially save your life.
Carbon Monoxide is a killer! It is a colourless, odourless, tasteless and poisonous gas which means you won’t know it’s there until it’s too late. It is produced by the incomplete burning of carbon-based fuels, including gas, oil, wood and coal, and usually by appliances which haven’t been properly installed, maintained or poorly ventilated.
We can also fit and remove gas or electric cookers and hobs, as well as disconnect your old appliance and take it away along with any packaging, and provide you with an official installation certificate.
