19000 Square Foot Factory Extension In Just 56 Days From First Inquiry To Final Handover
When Shimizu, a Japanese motor component manufacturer were looking to consolidate, they decided to invest in a 19000 square foot building extension to their existing factory, as opposed to renewing the lease on a building they had rented in a town, 15 miles away.
Timing was critical though, because with the lease ending, and with them not wanting to sign an extension to their lease, they not only needed a rapid solution, but one which would stand the test of time too.
Which is why they opted for a bespoke permanent extension from our construction division.
Interestingly, they originally inquired about our re-locatable temporary buildings because timing was critical and speed, of the essence, but we were able to supply them with a permanent extension in the same time-frame, which gave them the best all round solution.
Due to the sheer span of the extension - 45 metres - we supplied the extension with internal hot rolled columns to provide the strength for the overall span, and were able to 'flash' the new extension to their existing building to create a direct link from one to the other.
The entire process (excluding the base) took just 56 days from 1st call to final handover, which was a feat, even by our standards!
