GUARANTEED TO BE GREEN

Our success in the power generation and recycling industries continues with the recent completion of a £5 million development at Queensway Meadows, Newport.

Celtic Recycling is the UK’s leading specialist in recycling and recovery of end of life heavy electrical equipment and hazardous waste treatment and disposal.  Their new State-of-the-art facility features more than 5000m2 of ElitePlus roof and walls.  The long-life coatings of the Colorcoat steels used in Elite Systems, combined with the ElitePlus guarantee which covers the entire site-assembled system, provide the performance, protection and peace of mind needed for such demanding buildings.

The first phase of redevelopment of the site in Newport involved the total refurbishment of the existing building as well as treatment and disposal of hazardous wastes.  Modern office space and training facilities were also constructed as part of the first phase development which completed in 2010.

Phase 2 of the expansion commenced in September 2011 and included the construction of two new industrial units, security lodge, weighbridge and new access road from the public highway.   ElitePlus 2.25 roof and ElitePlus 55.30, ElitePlus 51.35 walls were specified for this latest development.

DARE TO DREAM

We’re delighted to have helped set in motion what will hopefully see a bright future for Cardiff City FC.  The Cardiff City House of Sport is a state-of-the-art indoor 3G and polyurethane (multisport) training facility conveniently situated behind the Cardiff City Stadium.  Our products were used extensively with 3200m2 of Elite System 2 roof in white, 960 metres of rooflights, 1400m2 of Elite System 52 wall in Solent blue and double-side coated HPS200 Ultra in goosewing grey.  Our roof and wall products were installed by Pontypool-based Aberclad on behalf of main contractor CMB Engineering.
The Cardiff City House of Sport is vital to the development of future football stars in the Cardiff City FC Academy and also provides strong community benefits through programmes developed and run by the Cardiff City FC Community and Education Foundation.
The Multisport arena enables a whole host of additional sporting groups to benefit from the same level of quality experienced by those who train within the existing 3g facility. With the addition of high spec polyurethane flooring,  the brand new 63m x 42m space is suitable to accommodate sports such as Futsal, basketball, netball, handball, volleyball, skating and disability sports.

First Street Manchester

One of the most audacious applications of rainscreen cladding that we’ve experienced is just being completed at First Street Manchester.  A new building aimed at the growing number of international and post graduate students who want hotel-standard accommodation has been constructed and Booth Muirie rainscreen products have been applied to great effect.  The unique tessellating pattern of panels was technically challenging but has been delivered with aplomb to achieve a stunning exterior façade that reflects the high quality aspiration of VITA Student; a scheme to provide 279 luxury student suites in Manchester city centre.

GM Services installed the Booth Muirie products on behalf of main contractor Carillion, with architectural design by 5plus.

The building is part of the £500m First Street Development and will include a student hub offering a reception, cafe, gym, a lounge and gaming area with communal iMacs.  The interior is designed to maximise efficiency on the bedroom floors to allow for these generous communal spaces.

The development opened in September 2014 and is the fourth to be created by VITA Student.

THE SKY’S THE LIMIT

We have recently supplied 5000m2 of our new Opus plank profile, for the new £60m advanced manufacturing facility in Solihull, which will produce engine control systems for a range of applications, including the Rolls-Royce Trent family of aircraft engines.  The new centre at Birmingham Business Park, is being developed for Aero Engine Controls, part of the Rolls-Royce Group.  Combined with almost 13,500m2 of ElitePlus 2 roof, the ElitePlus 54 and 58 walls (featuring Opus) combine to form an entire building envelope that is covered by the ElitePlus 25 year system guarantee.,

Trusted Euroclad customer Northern Cladding are installing the ElitePlus systems, which covers an area in excess of 18,000m2.  BAM Construction are leading the development which has been designed by Maber.

The development – which is expected to generate hundreds of new jobs – will replace two existing AEC sites in Hall Green and will incorporate technology, design, development, manufacturing and testing capabilities, with associated expansion space.
