Sutcliffe was engaged to build the extension to GGR Group’s HQ in Oldham as well as making the steel frame, cladding and canopy. All were fabricated in house by Sutcliffe including the trim to match the rest of the site facilities. Deadlines were tight – 8 weeks in total – and construction was a challenge, involving careful planning and execution working with limitations on crane usage and restricted heights because of proximity to major power lines. The result was a 530sqm training facility for spider crane operators and extra storage for GGR, a national leader in lifting products and services. Architect: John Barnes. Engineers: Bridgewater Engineers.
A challenging project to construct a state-of-the-art £4.3 million 3,665 sqm warehouse, distribution and training for Belzona International at its UK headquarters in Harrogate. The steel frame and detailing was all fabricated by Sutcliffe at its Skipton-based steel fabrication plant. This is the company’s second project for Belzona International, a global leader in the chemical protection and composite materials repair industry. The project follows on from the successful completion of an underground fire water attenuation tank project completed in 2016. Architect: Norr Architects. Structural engineering consultant: Blue Sky Consultancy.
Aggregate Industries’ asphalt plants at Heathrow and Sheffield are two of the tallest buildings we have created with eaves over 30m high. Both plants needed to be fully enclosed at each site to meet with planning requirements. We designed, fabricated and constructed the steel frame buildings for both sites and made the cladding to fit around the silos.
