SOUTH ESSEX COLLEGE


 
Originally the plan was to install the units using a lorry mounted crane on foundation pads in the car park area. However the day before installation we discovered that the access had been excavated so our area manager John Roper immediately arranged a crane to carry out installation, and of course updated all the H & S info to reflect this.

CANARY WHARF and THE SHARD, LONDON


 
These inter-linked units provided welfare facilities for over 250 contractors during concrete core and initial steel framing phase of the works. Careful co-ordination, professionalism and an eye for detail were a necessity to making this work. We had two clients on this particular project : Byrne Bros. concrete core (AV Danzer also had units on hire to Byrne at the ‘Shard’ tallest tower in Europe project) and Canary Wharf Group PLC.

RECYCLING DEPOT, ALFRETON


 
Here’s a two unit system which we have just installed at a recycling depot in Alfreton, Derbyshire for JC Balls. We linked the two units end to end to provide a weigh bridge office, canteen, drying room and WC facilities and also included data points and air conditioning. We raised the building up onto large foundations to allow the weigh bridge window to line up with the vehicle windows to enable to staff to communicate more directly with drivers and also included roller shutters for increased security.

The buildings are used to securely house the instrumentation equipment which measures the train weight and other related information. This information is then passed back to a management office for data records and analysis. In the UK the buildings will be installed trackside, at power stations, steel works and freight shunting yards. Read more…


BRITISH SUGAR


 
8 steel, anti-vandal units are used to provide additional workshop space for the sugar makers who produce 400,000 tonnes of the white stuff from the site every year. The units were placed 8ft apart and the gap between each unit was bridged to form an under cover storage area, a process which involved the fabrication of bespoke brackets to allow the storage roof to be attached.

Continuing to expand our reach overseas we have recently delivered a great new installation on the beautiful island of Guernsey.

Guernsey AV Danzer Wood Environmental

We were appointed by Wood Environmental and Infrastructure Solutions UK Limited to create a modular Facilities Building for the new waste transfer facility for the island.

Located at Longue Hougue Reclamation Site just outside of the capital at St Peter Port, the building will be used to provide accommodation and welfare facilities for the site operatives and visitors. It will also provide office space for management and administrative staff and will function as a data control centre.

The six unit Linkpak system was built by the team at Langley Mill and we worked with Profreight, one of the few haulage companies based on the island, to arrange the transportation.

Specialists in shipping to the Channel Islands, Profreight undertook all the travel logistics to make sure the units were delivered safely and in good time.

Following production, they were loaded at our depot and transported by road to Portsmouth, then onto the roll-on, roll-off ferry for a 7-hour journey across the Channel to Guernsey. Once on the island they were again transported by lorry to site with wide-load notifications in place to take account of the island’s narrow roadways.

Guernsey AV Danzer Wood Environmental

Fortunately, Profreight has a depot close to the waste transfer site so we could safely park the trailers in their compound while we maneuvered each of the units into place.

Although there are not many large equipment providers on Guernsey we were able to secure one of only two cranes on the island which were big enough to lift the units into place.

We also provided an additional unit from our Protecta range as part of the contract which is being used at the site’s weighbridge station. It will provide a secure and functional space for the team to undertake their work weighing and measuring the waste which will be transported through the facility.

Commenting on the project AVDanzer’s Bill Holloway said: “With any overseas job the delivery and transportation needs careful planning and we have yet again worked with extremely experienced contractors to deliver this job safely and on time. The operation went without a hitch and we are grateful to Profreight for their expert guidance and knowledge in helping us execute a seamless delivery plan.”

AVDanzer also needed to arrange work permits for the team because, although Guernsey is a dependency of the British Crown, it does not form part of UK and has its own labour laws.

The team will return in August to oversee and sign off the installation of this exciting project which follows other overseas installations by AVDanzer in Ireland and Finland.
