The GB Group to build retirement village worth £36m

The GB Group have won a contract worth £36 million; they will build a retirement village in Great Alne, West Midlands.

The GB Group provide innovative solutions to clients in a number of different sectors including development, construction, IT and energy. The company has been founded for over 100 years and is still going strong; this just proves that they deliver to a very high standard. Over 70% of their workload is through repeat business. They have five offices up and down the country at Stockport, Newcastle, Sunbury, Rugby and Wakefield.

This is a joint project between Helical Bar and Renaissance Villages. The construction of the village will create hundreds of engineering jobs.

Helical Bar is a property development and investment company; within their portfolio they have developments such as Clyde Shopping Centre, Fulham Wharf and Huddersfield Retail Park.

Renaissance Villages create and manage award winning property developments all over the UK. Owning a property within a Renaissance Village gives you exceptional design and finish and outstanding security. Locations in which they already have developments are West Sussex, Devon and Hampshire.

The retirement village in Great Alne, West Midlands will be called Maudslay Park. The site in which Renaissance Villages have acquired was once a vehicle production works called Maudslay Motor Company. This brownfield site is set in 80 acres of land where newts live so the GB Group are creating two new ponds for them to relocate to. Ground work has already begun including the construction of some of the roads and the first set of cottages.

The development will have a mixture of cottages and one, two and three bedroom apartments. The properties within the village will boost such amenities as underfloor heating, double glazing and excellent insulation. The village will have a whole host of facilities for the residents to keep busy or, in fact, relax; including a gym, a swimming pool, a restaurant and a library.

This age exclusive village will be known for being luxurious, energy efficient and sustainable. The clubhouse and the first apartment block, known as Phase one, has a completion date of early 2016. Phase Two is expected to be complete by April 2017.

 

Cornwall and The Isles of Scilly ports and roads to be revamped

Cornwall and The Isles of Scilly ports and roads are to be revamped in a contract that is worth £12.8 million.

The project will be concentrating on the harbours at Penzance, Cornwall and St Mary’s, Isles of Scilly. The construction of the harbours is expected to take £7.3 million of the budget and will begin this month, with a completion date of June 2015.

The St. Mary’s pier will be revitalised as it will be widened and extended; likely to be complete by March 2015 before the summer season. The roads on St Mary’s will undergo renovation and will be resurfaced; this is expected to cost £1.8 million. Whilst all the machinery is on the island the runway will also be resurfaced. The freight yard will be widened and improved for easier access also the facilities for the passengers will be refurbished creating an improved experience for them.

Dredging will take place at the Penzance Harbour as well as improvements being carried out on the highways. There is also talk of partial rock amour but this is dependent on approval by the Department for Transport.

The improvements to both harbours will increase the water depth creating space and protection for bigger vessels. Another outcome that is anticipated is that there will be a reduction in conflict amongst harbour users.

The future looks extremely bright for these ports and all plans seem to be accepted by the local community. Links between Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly will only improve; the local economy will benefit greatly from this cash injection and harbour renewal.

 

Cluff Natural Resources believe Scotland is sitting on large coal reserves

Cluff Natural Resources is a resource company who are targeting the potential energy within the UK. The company was founded in the early 1970s by Algy Cluff. Cluff has discovered all sorts within the natural resources sector including the Buchan oil field, the Geita mine in Tanzania and the Baomahun discovery in Sierra Leone.

Cluff believes that a new source of gas for industry and power stations may be found under the Firth of Forth, as there may possibly be vast coal reserves.

The process in which Cluff Natural Resources will extract energy is known as deep underground coal gasification, this involves converting stranded coal into syngas. To extract the syngas they will drill vertically and horizontally into various offshore sites. Syngas is safe, clean and inexpensive.

The equipment needed for coal gasification is just two wells; one to bring the gas to the surface and the other to inject water and air.

A visit to the refinery and the chemical complex in Grangemouth was arranged in the hope that they would swap from imported shale to Firth of Forth gas, to support the future of one of the main businesses in Scotland.

A project team, the framework and the drilling plans for the deep underground coal gasification process is all in place but the focus on shale is prominent and may be slowing down the start of the process. Cluff would like the government to provide the same amount of support and incentives being given to shale. Studies have taken place within the EU and they have been successful, this is proof that the process works well and will hopefully develop some successful partnerships.

The EIA predict that 2015 will be a big year for US oil production

US oil production in 2015 is expected to be at its highest level since 1972 according to the EIA.

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) in Washington DC, America, is the analytical and statistical agency within the USA’s Department of Energy. After the oil market disruption in 1973 the EIA was founded in 1974 and they now employ 360 people. The EIA gathers, analyses, and distributes independent and unbiased energy information as well as looking at the interaction between energy, the environment and the economy. They collect data showing the full range of energy sources and energy flows, even predicting international energy outlooks. The EIA supports the public understanding of energy, in-depth policymaking and competent markets.

In 2013 oil production was averaged around 7.4 million barrels per day and is expected to rise to an average of 9.3 million barrels per day in 2015. The EIA produces this information from its Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO). Also in 2013 domestic oil, natural gas and coal contributed to meet 82 percent of the USA’s energy demand.

The Atlantic hurricane season is now upon us and according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration the tropical weather will be below normal so there will be minimal disruption to the oil production.

In 2005 domestic production of oil stood at 65 percent; this was an all-time low but since then it has accelerated year on year. As the industry has continued to grow, new drilling techniques and technologies have been created to meet the high demand. This then creates hundreds of engineering jobs and opportunities and adds to a greater economy.

 

 

Exchange an old ladder for a brand new one

The Ladder Association are running a ladder exchange initiative in which any one can exchange an old ladder in part exchange for a brand new one.

The headquarters of the Ladder Association are in Glasgow, but the programme is being rolled out all over the country, it started this month and will be running through til the end of December. This is the fourth year of the exchange; in year one it was run by the Health & Safety Executive.

The purpose of the ladder exchange is to motivate people to remove damaged and dangerous ladders from circulation. Thousands of people used the initiative last year in a bid to stay safe.

A number of companies up and down the UK have decided to become partners of the scheme, making it easier for people to exchange their ladders as they can find a shop that is local to them. Some of the companies are- Good to go safety, Ladder store and Clow group.

One of the main causes of injury and death in the workplace is falls from height and with over two million ladders being used in the UK on a day to day basis; it is of utmost importance that they are inspected regularly.

The Health & Safety at Work Act (HSWA) was passed in 1974 and has just celebrated its 40th anniversary. The law ensures that workers and managers take responsibility for their own actions; this has completely overturned the safety of the workplace in the UK. Since the act came in; thousands of lives have been saved and the UK has grown to be one of the safest places to work in the world.

A ladder that was in good working condition at the time of putting it away could have been tampered with so could be insecure the next time it is used. So it is always important to check the ladder over every time of use. Within the campaign there will also be a silly contest where people will send in pictures and then others will vote for the ‘biggest idiot on a ladder’.

This message of safety is encouraging householders, contractors and businesses to check the quality of their ladders and providing them with a cash incentive. Lives and money were saved last year thanks to the scheme.

 

T pylons contract won by Mabey Bridge

The first contract to construct the next generation pylons is awarded to Mabey Bridge.

The National Grid has created an innovative T shaped pylon. The contract that Mabey Bridge has won is for six prototype T pylons to be erected at the National Grid’s Eakring Training Academy. The decision to put the pylons on a training camp was a wise one. Engineers will be able to fully control the construction and maintenance of them, whilst not disturbing local people, wildlife and environments.

The new design has T shaped arms atop of a single pole, the conductors are held in a diamond shape and it will stand at 35 metres tall. The current lattice structure pylons that we are so used to; stand at a height of 50 metres, making the T shaped pylon the obvious choice.

Bystrup, an architecture company, who are based in Copenhagen, were the ones to design the T shaped pylon. They fought off some stiff opposition from around the world. The National Grid, the Department of Energy and Climate Change and the Royal Institute of British Architects decided, collectively, to put a competition forward to create a new style pylon. It was an international competition which gained 250 entries. Criteria that needed to be met included sympathetic design to fit in the 21st century, reliability and safety. Obviously numerous engineering jobs will be created, which is always a great thing for our economy.

In the 20th century the current lattice structure pylons were constructed by Mabey Bridge along with a few other construction companies. So winning this first contract for T pylons is a nice continuation for the company.
