Welsh fabricator secures new project at major Bristol development

LEADING Welsh aluminium fabricator, Dudley’s Aluminium, has secured another multi-million pound project at a major mixed-use development in Bristol.

Dudley’s Aluminium has secured the contract with Willmott Dixon to work on the Millwrights Place and Coopers Court residential scheme at Finzels Reach. The Cardiff-based company has already commenced work on Halo, innovative office accommodation within the same development, with the combined worth of the projects totalling £5.1million.

The fabricator will install a range of high-quality Kawneer products including windows, capped and structural silicone glazed curtain walling, swing doors and patio doors, in addition to louvres, steel doors, automatic opening and fire rated windows, across the build at the former site of the Avon Fire and Rescue headquarters.

Millwrights Place will feature 231 private rental apartments in a 14 storey building, while the adjacent 10 storey Coopers Court will include 66 apartments with affordable and shared ownership options available for prospective tenants. Providing a mixture of 1 and 2 bedroom homes, both schemes also boast courtyard bike stores, roof terraces, a brown roof and undercroft parking.

Colin Shorney, Managing Director at Dudley’s Aluminium, said: “This is the third major project we have worked on with Willmott Dixon at Finzels Reach, after the Aurora and Halo office complexes, and we are thrilled to be involved once again.”

Since 1993, Dudley’s Aluminium has offered clients full in-house design and production facilities, completing many successful and prestigious projects within the education, health, commercial, retail and defence sectors throughout the UK and Channel Islands.

Dudley’s reputation for quality has been recognised with several industry-related accreditations. The company is CHAS accredited, Constructionline registered and certified to manufacture “Secured by Design” products.
