The Factory Regeneration at Whitworths will initially look at the refurbishment of 3 Buildings to form 3 new production halls over the next 2-3 years. Following the initial phase, we will be looking to extend our refurbishment goals across the rest of the factory.
PHASE ONE NOV 18 TO JAN 19
Progress has been good over the last 2-3 months, with the old sugar warehouse being stripped internally and the existing roof and wall cladding removed in preparation for the installation of new roof cladding. We have removed the old molasses and glucose tanks, along with removing the concrete base and surrounding walls.
Works during December and January were good, due to fine weather allowing us to fully remove the roof and start re-roofing to make the building dry ready for the external wall construction. In addition to the roof and walls of the building we have been demolishing the internal structures.
As part of the Considerate Constructors programme we had a visit from their appointed people to check how we are performing within their guidelines. It was a good visit and we achieved a 4-star rating which is high praise for all the team involved.
The co-ordination between the construction team and the Whitworths team has been exceptional, ensuring progress on the building works is maintained and that the site continues with its daily business.
