Alpha Source Additional Space for Beta Growth
Industry leading sheet metal fabrication supplier, Alpha Manufacturing, needed to relocate its operations office which sat in the centre of the factory to make valuable space for new machines as part of their long term growth strategy.
Alpha approached Elliott as our Cannock operations were close to its office base in Staffordshire, which enabled the client a visit to our factory and also hold face-to-face project meetings. As an expert in the field, Elliott were able to grow the trust of being able to deliver a high quality product for the available budget.
Value of project
The new offices were designed with collaboration, interaction and productivity in mind, which was a key consideration for Alpha’s stakeholders. The Elliott ELM range fitted the brief perfectly. A 22-module building using our 7.2m x 3m modules was created allowing the entire office staff including management, design, operations, sales and administration teams to be based on the second of two stories, with canteen space, toilets and changing facilities for all 100+ shop-floor staff housed on the ground floor.
The specification included open plan office space, meeting room with fully glazed partitions, built in office kitchen facilities plus toilet facilities, full climate control with separate ventilation system to optimise staff comfort. It even included a communal balcony and barbeque area to encourage a positive, productive work environment for staff.
The office block installation and internal fit-out ran smoothly and was completed on time and on budget, enabling Alpha Manufacturing to focus on the other areas of the project. Client feedback has been positive, with staff pleased with their new environment!
Monika Rzaca-Laczkowska, Business Development Manager at Elliott, said:
“It’s been fantastic to be able to work on a modular project in the local community and observe how Elliott left its mark in Alpha’s expansion plans”
Paul Clews, Operations Manager at Alpha Manufacturing, commented:
Aside from the need to relocate the office to facilitate our plans for the factory, the benefits in terms of productivity and efficiency through creating a good work environment are clear. We try to give our employees all the necessary tools to perform to their best and our aim with the new offices was no different.”
