Baileys Caravans

Project Works

The Background

Baileys Caravans were founded in 1948.  With successes from the start they then moved to their current site in 1960. This site is constantly changing due to the demands of their business and also with them embracing new technologies, production machines, etc.  The need for effective space planning is therefore critical.

Employing approximately 300 staff and producing in excess of 1000 caravans/ motor homes per year means their production line is a hive of activity and unnecessary disruption is unacceptable.

Any significant changes to these areas therefore need to be meticulously planned and executed to ensure that they have no affect on their production capabilities.

The Solution

We have undertaken several small and large projects for Baileys and have constantly delivered on time, within budget and without significant disruption to their processes.

One such project was to demolish the main production offices, which were positioned in the middle of their main production area, and to extend another set of offices in a more convenient location within the same building.

Fortunately we were able to clear a suitable space and build the new office area first for them to move into.  We doubled the size of an existing office, mirroring finishes, ceiling levels, etc.

Working long hours, and at most weekends, we ensured the works progressed at speed to meet the desired deadline without compromising on quality.

Once they had moved into their new office area we then were instructed to demolishing the brick built old internal offices, ensuring there was no damage to it's surrounding surfaces or the closely positioned production machines.

We carefully demolished this area, collapsing it into itself by hand and then removing all of the waste materials and retaining walls over a rather long weekend !!

The Result

Baileys gained valuable production area space and better office facilities with zero impact on their production capabilities.

We completed the works as desired and to the high standards they demand from their own production processes.

"Quality can be easily identified.  Good workmanship is followed by good reliabilty and to date we have had zero problems arise from poor workmanship or failures."

Indesit

Indesit moved their main warehousing and distribution functions to Sharpness Docks back in 2005. The site they took over was filled with Pallet Racking and two large cold stores so significant work was required before a single electrical appliance could be stored in there.

The Brandon Trust

The Brandon Trust is a charity which provides residential and day care facilities for people with learning disabilities. The Brandon Trust grows from strength to strength and inline with this growth they are needing to continually adapt to the ever increasing demand on their office support and facilities.

Graphic Packaging

With the ever increasing demands on business Graphic Packaging found the need to outsource their general building fabric maintenance as they wanted to focus their own in house maintenance on maximising efficiency of their printing machines, etc.
