They acquired Foseco in 2008, to become a group that employed over 10,000 people at 70 plants in 40 countries. In the UK they decided to amalgamate their Head Office and their R&D facility at Barlborough, Chesterfield.

After a presentation of our services. Storage Concepts submitted comprehensive proposals that would complete the relocation while Vesuvius’s operations remained live.

End-of-year budgets meant time and money was tight, and all work had to be compliant with the latest CDM, Health & Safety and Building Regulations.

By offering an end-to-end ‘turnkey’ package, working flexible hours and providing a detailed schedule of work in progress. Meant we were able to work closely with Vesuvius and achieve their goals in one smooth, coordinated operation.

We constructed a free-standing mezzanine floor with a double-skinned, partitioned shop floor laboratory beneath. With the assistance of our in house CAD team, we had also designed and built new meeting rooms, canteen and first aid room.

As part of the construction, we also installed suspended ceilings, electrics, air conditioning, smoke detectors, floor covering, break out furniture and lighting for offices.

Then we equipped the relocated R&D laboratories with all of the above – plus the specialised equipment and systems.

There was very little disruption and the project was finished within time and on a very tight budget.
