Sterling Services have now completed installation of their biggest project to date at £2.7 million - Swansea University Computational Foundry.
This contract is illustrative of Sterling’s recently increased capacity at the factory thanks to the new casting shed and installation of overhead gantry cranes last September. Sterling has seen a steady rise in manufacturing output, even in these early days of the new facility, of around 25%.
These brick faced panels made good use of our new Ferrari automatic brick cutting machine, without which the manufacture timescale would have been greatly increased as well as costs; proving it to be a great asset to the business.
The panels feature a cream Ivanhoe brick face, creating an appropriate and aesthetically pleasing finish to the building. Using brick faced panels on site reduces the amount of on-site labour as well as installation timescale and storage of site materials; appropriate benefits for a busy university site.
The new building will provide a new 7500 sqm footprint for research, laboratories and teaching facilities within the university.
