Our latest modular building installation is at BMW’s new panel pressing plant at the Mini factory in Swindon.
Our customer is leading construction firm Mclaughlin and Harvey who are building the plant where the new eco-friendly Mini Electric will be partly made. Once the panels have been manufactured at Swindon they will be transported to Oxford where the cars will be assembled and completed.
The welfare building, which will provide shelter, changing faculties and offices for contractors and sub-contractors is on hire from our Essex depot and will be onsite until August 2020.
It consists of sixteen 32’ x 10’ units, stacked 8 on 8 with toilets, a large open plan canteen and drying room on the first floor. On the second floor there is an extensive open plan office, kitchen, toilets and reception area. The two floors are linked by an external stairway.
Commenting on the commission John Roper from AVDanzer in Essex said: “McLaughlin and Harvey is a new customer for AVDanzer and we are delighted to be supporting the expansion of the BMW Mini plant at Swindon. They have a prestigious list of clients including Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, Liverpool Cruise Terminal, Luton Airport and University of Edinburgh. We’re looking forward to working with them and seeing the new electric Mini’s on the road next year.”
Commenting in the Swindon Advertiser, BMW plant Oxford and Swindon managing director Peter Weber said: “This is such a proud moment for every single one of our team.
“It shows our commitment to the UK. The Mini Electric will be fully integrated into the production process at Oxford and Swindon, running down the same lines as all the conventional models.
“The Electric Mini maintains our production volume and it is great news for the plant and the workforce. The panels will come from Swindon which means the plant is integral to the car.”
The first electric Mini deliveries are expected to be around March 2020.
