Double shortlist honour in Offsite Awards
We are delighted to have our offsite manufacturing expertise recognised in two categories in the upcoming Offsite Awards for our work on the Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Building (IBRB) at the University of Warwick.
NG Bailey is shortlisted in both the Best use of MEP and POD Technology and Offsite Pioneer of the Year categories for our work on IBRB, a £54m state of the art research building that has been built using at least 50% offsite manufacturing for both construction and mechanical and electrical services installation.
Earlier this year, we completed the installation of a 27.5m high multi-service riser. The mega riser is the biggest ever produced by NG Bailey and was manufactured at our specialist Offsite Manufacture facility in Bradford. It took just three days to install compared to the 18-weeks it would have taken using traditional methods.
By using our Offsite Manufacture expertise we considerably reduced vehicle movements to site. The delivery of the mega-riser in eight sections has saved more than 100 vehicle movements helping to minimise our carbon impact and reduce congestion for the local community. It has also saved more than 9,000 labour hours from site and sped up progress on the project.
