Polyseam Factory Extension
DURATION: 33 weeks
Nu Construction were awarded this design and build project to deliver a new industrial complex on St Andrew’s Road, Huddersfield.
The works comprise site clearance and construction of a two-bay extension with a ground floor area of 2,680m2 to extend the existing Polyseam factory.
An advanced level of fire protection between the manufacturing units was installed creating the ability for the units to be able to collapse independently of each other in the event of a fire within one unit
A new access road had to be completed before the new extension works commenced. The existing vehicle exit access had to remain in use throughout the contract period.
The new unit has enabled the company to remain in the town they have manufactured in for over 23 years and maintain their local workforce. The new facility is also expected to enable Polyseam to increase its workforce from 39 to in excess of 100, as it builds up additional manufacturing lines.
