Factory Extension

The project involved the construction of high bay testing facility with joiner’s shop attached to the existing factory, including a 21m high section of building to facilitate testing of large bespoke doors. Also, a new modular office extension and new surfacing to external areas.

CLIENT: Clark Door       VALUE: £1.3m       COMPLETION: January 2020      

DURATION: 28 weeks      CONTRACT: JCT Design & Build


The extension was a relatively simple construction of portal frame and composite cladded building but had a complex, heavily loaded steel frame on large, reinforced foundations. The primary requirement was to achieve completion of test rig area for testing of doors. This was achieved by close co-ordination of design of steel frame with in-house design for test rig.

Works were carried out within an industrial park, working adjacent to a live factory. We formed a good relationship with the park operator and Client which was maintained throughout the project.
