Britcon Awarded £3 million Project for Marine Operator Premises

Lincolnshire based building, civil engineering and structural steelwork contractor, Britcon has secured a £3.1 million contract to deliver a purpose designed workshop and offices at Tolvaddon Business Park in Camborne for Balanus Assets Ltd.

The facility is to be occupied by LDD Ltd, a high value company specialising in marine and subsea foundations, project management and engineering.

Tolvaddon Business Park is a new development located on a 14 hectare site on the northern edge of Pool and adjacent to the existing Phase 1 Tolvaddon Energy Park that is now fully occupied.

As principal contractor, Britcon will manage the entire design and build for the project that is supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and designed to achieve BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standard. The brief includes delivery of a new 20,000 sq. ft. manufacturing workshop and offices of steel frame and cladded structure with two gantry cranes installed in the workshop. Britcon will also deliver a new car park, storage yard, and standalone maintenance facility as well as a new site entrance, landscaping, draining and services for the benefit of the entire business park.

Shaun Hunt, Managing Director at Britcon said, “This represents a significant contract for Britcon in the South West where we are becoming increasingly active with design and build projects. The competitive tender process was challenging due to strict cost control but we were able to draw upon our experience in delivering Treleigh Industrial Estate in Redruth to combine regional knowledge with the strict criteria to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating within a budget that is necessary for ERDF funding.”

Work has already started on site with anticipated completion by the end of February 2015. LDD Ltd will relocate from existing headquarters at Longdowns where it has occupied since start up in 2007. The new facility is three times larger than its current operation, supporting plans for future expansion and employment in the region.
