Nu Construction were awarded this design and build project to deliver a new industrial complex on St Andrew’s Road, Huddersfield.
While every site and client requirement present challenges, Polyseam presented several unique problems which needed to be resolved.
The site was located between the clients existing production facility and a neighbouring engineering unit. To the rear of the site was a canal with several house boats utilising the mooring points, and a well trafficked footpath. The clients one way access road was located adjacent their existing factory, and it was imperative that the road remained accessible until an alternative road was completed for use by exiting delivery wagons.
The site sloped towards a busy road which was already affected by existing road works. Sections of the site were affected by cellars while the remaining had been filled with debris to a depth of 5m. The works relied on consultation with the British Waterways, Huddersfield Highways Department, the client’s Operations Director, neighbouring businesses, and the design team. Among the innovations implemented to provide solutions on the site were:-
The works were completed during the Covid pandemic by introducing strict health and safety measures and working with our supply chain to achieve a revised time frame which still achieved critical dates required for the client’s delivery of new machinery.
Working with NU Construction has been seamless. From the inception through to completion the team has been proactive, agile and understanding of our needs as a client. NU Construction continuously worked with us in a collaborative manner and we are thrilled with the quality of workmanship provided. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend NU Construction to any clients.
