Assisted by both the fine weather and our contractor Britannia Construction, the groundworks for the new factory for Stroud Metal and Stroud Plastics are running a week ahead of schedule! Fingers crossed for the dry weather continuing for another month.
It’s so exciting to see our new factory develop. The base for the floor slab has been constructed, levels have been raised and the ground has been compressed. The steel framework for the building is due on site Mid October and the foundations for the steel framework are already being poured.
Cladding of the framework will commence immediately the steels arrive. The plan is to have the office pod and the main factory structure watertight before Christmas, with internal fit-out commencing early January. By the time we return to work after the Christmas break, the Water, Gas and Electricity will also have been laid to the building
Our contractors have really pulled out all the stops and are already pushing us for the final internal layout design. Fortunately, this has already been completed.
