Project Completion - Megger Phase 1b
Following on from the successfully delivery of the Phase 1a contract for Megger completed in 2019, we have now handed over and completed Phase 1b of the project, ready for occupation.
This most recent phase of work has seen us complete the construction of a new build 1800m2 factory and extension to the existing warehouse including the internal refurbishment of much of the existing warehouse and offices at the same site.
The new factory located on the prominent site in Dover, has been constructed utilising a steel portal frame system and has been carefully engineered due to the sensitive nature of the products being manufactured by Megger.
A specialist Air Handling Unit (AHU) has been fitted throughout the new factory, designed to remove moisture/ condensation in the air to create the optimal production environment for Megger.This AHU is powered by photovoltaic panels located on the new factory roof, with the frame structure specifically designed to hold the extra weight of the PV panels through the use of horizontal and vertical cross bracing in the design.
Also incorporated in the design and structure of the new factory space is a mezzanine floor, comprising of a concrete slab hung from the larger steel beams to house the factories plant.This clever use of space has helped maximise the total floor area available to house the Megger production equipment, office space and welfare facilities for staff.
Megger, established in the 1800s designs and manufactures portable electrical test and measurement instruments that perform electrical measurements for preventative maintenance, troubleshooting and commissioning. The site at Dover has been the location of Megger's headquarters since the 1960’s and currently employs 260 highly skilled staff in the design, development and manufacture of electrical testing equipment.
