SPECIALIST aluminium fabricators Dudley’s Aluminium is completing a third landmark contract in Wales in just a matter of months.
The company is providing standard capped and structurally silicone glazed curtain walling as well as manual and automatic doors at One Central Square. The one million square foot site is being developed by Rightacres Property, and is the first phase of the new business centre being constructed in the heart of Cardiff. The site is scheduled to include the new location of the BBC Wales Headquarters.
Once finished, Dudley’s £1.5 million contract for Willmott Dixon at One Central Square will conclude a trio of landmark projects within the South Wales region.
Dudley’s is shortly due to fulfil a £1.5 million contract with Laing O’Rouke to provide specially-designed glazing at Llandough Hospital, near Penarth. To assist with the development of the new mental health unit, Dudley’s is producing bespoke anti-ligature windows that are essential for protecting the safety and well-being of patients. The company is also installing custom-made curtain walling to complete the development.
Earlier this year, Dudley’s completed a £2.2 million contract with Bouygues to support the construction of Swansea University’s new Bay Campus. Dudley’s manufactured and installed curtain walling with specifically-designed Alucobond rainscreen cladding with a brise soleil cassette system incorporated at the site. The company also fitted specifically-built pressed aluminium feature beams in addition to windows and manual window gear to complete the glazing at the campus.
Commenting on the three contracts, Dudley’s Director Colin Shorney said: “Their diversity, from further education through to health and commerce indicates the broad spectrum of our expertise in the marketplace.”
