Roofing and cladding specialist gives a new look to business park
11th February 2016
A grey outlook is good news for building envelope and cladding specialist Frazer Carter Group Ltd which has landed a six-figure contract only months after starting out.
The company, which is based at The Deep Business Centre, has also made its first full-time appointment, adding to a team of two directors and eight site-based workers.
The project to cover the roof and walls of the 35,000 square-foot West Point Trading Park in Liverpool Street, Hull, is expected to take around three months. By the time it is completed, Directors Adam Carter and Graham Jenkinson will have another high profile job ready and waiting.
Graham said The Deep Business Centre was identified as the ideal location for Frazer Carter Group when the company launched in summer 2015. He said: ““We work locally and regionally. We came to The Deep Business Centre because of the convenient location and the flexibility.
“We have already added one member of staff, we expect to need a project manager in a few months and we can grow the business and still stay here by expanding into more office space.”
Freya Cross, Business and Corporate Manager at The Deep, said: “We have a particularly good record when it comes to supporting start-up businesses because we work closely with our tenants, responding to their specific business needs promptly and as and when they need it.
“If a business needs more space quickly, whether to support long-term growth or a short-term contract, we can meet those requirements.”
West Point Trading Park is owned by Ashtenne Industrial Fund Ltd, a leading owner and management company of industrial estates, and Frazer Carter Group been appointed as the specialist principal contractor.
Graham said: “It is a good project for us and a significant and key order to start the New Year. We are working directly to DTZ and Workman, the client’s appointed management professionals at West Point Trading Park. It was hard work to get on their approved list and it shows how professional we are. We can build and grow from there in this specialist market.”
Other contracts so far have included a two-storey extension for Northern Access Flooring in Wincolmlee, Hull, Trespa rain screen installation at Bullrush Business Park in Doncaster for Hall Construction Group and stripping and re-installing an industrial roof at Keystore, Tickton for Thompson Construction (Yorkshire) Ltd.
Graham said: “The owners of West Point want to improve not only the appearance but also the insulation and the performance of the building so we are putting a top coat on the existing roof and walls.”
