About the Project

OTL successfully refurbished the secure mental health facility, Oaktree Manor Hospital, in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, over the course of a year, from July 2022 to July 2023. With a contract value of £1.5 million, the project included the creation of 40 new bedrooms with en-suite wet rooms, upgrades to living areas, and the addition of new communal spaces. The entire hospital underwent rewiring and received new HVAC systems, while anti-ligature and anti-barricade products were implemented for safety. Our close collaboration with hospital management ensured the facility reopened on schedule for new patients.
