In the first in our series of online case studies, we showcase a smaller scale project that despite its size, came with complex challenges, and the client and MLB are delighted with the result. Read our case study for Emballator Packaging’s new factory extension.

Client: Emballator Packaging
Location: Bradford
Tonnage: 32 tonnes
Completion Date: February 2020

The client brief:

In November 2019, we were briefed by contractor Dimestage (Construction) Limited, to design, manufacture and install a steel frame for a factory extension for Emballator Packaging in Bradford (part of Emballator Group Europe).

The work we completed:

In February 2020, we supplied and installed a hot rolled steel frame and cold rolled purlin/side rails to create additional factory space. The frame was 29m x 8m, with a total weight of 32 tonnes, designed and manufactured to fit seamlessly to the roof and framework of the existing building.

Challenges overcome:

The main challenge on this project was ensuring the set out of the steelwork was correct, to ensure the roof line matched the existing building.

Project outcome:

This project went smoothly, and work was completed on time, within budget and with no variations. MLB successfully handed the steel frame over to the contractor who went on to complete the project.

Specific Successes:

Key specific successes to note are:

1. We delivered real value and quality – the structure was delivered on-time, on-budget (zero variations) and with not a single fabrication error resulting in no snagging work required.

2. Adaptability and versatility – this project demonstrated our ability to work on small scale projects as well as big regardless of the geographical location. Given the technical difficulty of this job, we are proud of the end result which fitted seamlessly to the existing structure

What the client said:

“We engaged MLB Steel through recommendation and value. This was the right decision. From design, to site and completion, this project was well run, of great quality and flawless. We would highly recommend MLB Steel should we be asked for reference, and Dimestage look forward to working with them again.”
