The Construction of Centek

Walton Development & Construction were awarded the contract to build a new 22,000sq/ft Devon based production facility for Centek in Newton Abbot; these works were completed in 2014.

The building was constructed using a steel propped portal frame and cladded with 80mm insulated micro rib cladding. It included two fully automated roller shutter doors, high specification office space with a variety of IT infrastructure cabling and energy efficient LED lighting. The manufacturing and storage area were specifically designed accommodating the needs of Centek’s highly specialised manufacturing processes, with custom formed service pits and slab arrangements to accommodate various specialised equipment, which was installed as the building was constructed by contractors from Germany and Austria.

The build was completed within a schedule of 28 Weeks, and was completed within the budget of £1.6m
Managing Director of Centek, Tony Cutmore was delighted with the final finished product, which was officially opened by local dignitaries, alongside a ceremony marking the awarding of the Queens Award for Enterprise, for the 3rd time in 6 years.
