We are very proud to have won the “Best Large Commercial Project” at the prestigious All Wales Building Excellence Awards for the £12.5 million IG Doors Production Facility. Managing Director Jon Williams and Operations Director Stuart Brown received the award on behalf of the company at the Principality Stadium.
The project involved the design and construction of a 19,500 sq m steel portal frame Production Facility and Offices to be used for the manufacturing of doors. The site is located within Oakdale Business Park in Caerphilly. The facility comprises; a 270m x 60m production hall with loading areas, single storey welfare, utilities block, storage areas, control room, canteen, kitchen, meeting rooms and single storey office block.
The unit was built on a reclaimed Coal Tip which had been previously remediated. Following further site investigation it was proved that the remediation undertaken, some 20 years earlier, had not been successful. Our contract included a process called “Rolling Dynamic Compaction”, which re-compacted the site using the existing site won materials. The project was designed to achieve BREEAM ‘Very Good’ and includes various sustainability features.
