New workshop starts to rise

11th February 2021

PROCAST are proud to deliver numerous projects of varying types across a range of disciplines for a large roster of clients, many of them in the public sector, but the company also provide construction solutions for private clients.

One of the firm’s recently started programmes of works involves the design and construction of an all-new workshop for a timber engineering manufacturer.

The £250,000 project to erect the 500m2 steel-frame building also involves hard and soft landscape works for a client with extremely clear  demands and expectations relating to the utilisation of renewable technologies, both during construction and in the day-to-day operation of the facility.

Works include:

  • The supply and installation of steel portal frame
  • Installation of insulated cladding system to external walls
  • Polished concrete floor slab
  • Roof lights
  • Formation of staff toilet, kitchen and canteen facilities
  • Design and installation of air-source heating system
  • Installation of photovoltaic panels with battery
  • Supply and installation of vehicle charging points
  • New utility installations
  • Hard landscaping including parking areas
  • New soft landscaping including installation of 100 trees

Due to the previous use of the land, Procast had to carry out extensive good remediation works in line with site-investigation and site-remediation strategies.

The foundations were also constructed from driven piles on ring beam structure.

Procast Managing Director Derek Innes said: “We are delighted to undertake the design and build of our first warehouse facility for a new client which is supporting the growth of this local business.

“We have really enjoyed the design process working with our own design team and market leaders in renewable energy and energy efficient technologies.”

The programme of works started in December 2020 and is due to be completed prior to handover to the client in April, 2021.
