In March 2014, Siemens confirmed it was to build a major wind turbine production facility in Hull at Alexandra Docks Green Port, Hull, bringing thousands of job opportunities to the people in our region and of course bringing opportunity for contractors of various fields of work to be involved in such a prestigious project.
In July 2015 leading UK contractor VolkerFitzpatrick were appointed by Siemens to build the 40,000m2 facility. Construction began in August 2015 and the factory is scheduled to be completed by late 2016. The facility to be built will accommodate the manufacture of turbine blades and also the storage, distribution and maintenance of wind turbine components. There is also office accommodation and welfare facilities to be constructed.
It is these factory offices that CDY were delighted to be awarded the internal works package, to include metal stud partitions, lay in grid suspended ceilings and MF ceilings. CDY will be working with Knauf products including Soundshield plus, Moisture board and Performance plus plasterboards. Insulation, stud and track will also all be Knauf to ensure a finished product of the highest quality. CDY works include the build of over 2000m2 of metal stud partitions and to install over 1000m2 of lay in grid suspended ceiling.
We are looking forward to working on this prestigious project with VolkerFitzpatrick and are honoured to be involved in what promises to be a great asset to our city.
