Project: Extension of a production unit

Location: Zelhem

Project description:

Extension of a production unit within an existing factory. No small job: the extension had to cover an area of 4 x 17 metres. The Engineering department had to take account of the existing structure that needed to be broken open, altered and extended. This meant that half of the load bearing capacity of the structure must be taken up by the new foundation. As well as this, there was also a small transformer house that could not be removed.

No problem for our team! In cooperation with the contractors we have been successful in constructing a large solid hall that provides space for the larger machines and is ready for the future.

The client was very impressed with the result, as well as the appearance of the outside panels.

So much so that as a result of these alterations the client decided to have the same panelling fitted around the entire building; so also over the existing part that had not been altered.

This created one attractive elegant look and the entire building looks as new.


Fortunately, high demands are placed on quality and safety. Our steel workers have, of course, the required qualifications, for example, VCA (Safety, Health and Environment checklist Contractors), elevated work platform and fork-lift truck certificates. To guarantee the quality of our organisation, we are also ISO 9001 certified and our structural and welding quality is demonstrated by the fact that we are accredited to CE Standard EN 1090 execution class.
