Welsh Fabricator Secures Contracts

Welsh aluminium fabricator Dudley’s Aluminium has begun work on two police headquarters in South Wales.

The first of the two projects is the South Wales Police Headquarters in Bridgend. South Wales Police is the largest police force in Wales and serves communities across the region between Swansea and Cardiff.

The project, which has an estimated value of £1.4 million, includes a four-storey police learning centre, a human resources building and a two-storey gym. Once it is complete, the Headquarters will welcome an additional 650 people on site every day.

Dudley’s will be working in partnership with Willmott Dixon on the build, which includes revolving doors as well as automatic swing and sliding doors. The aluminium fabricator will be installing a wide range of Kawneer products including capped curtain walling, windows and doors.

Working alongside BAM Construction, Dudley’s will also be using Kawneer products on their second build at the Gwent Police Headquarters in Cwmbran. As well as windows and doors, the Welsh company will be installing Kawneer’s innovative Louvreshield external shading and provide extra security to the building with enhanced blast resistant capped curtain walling.

Colin Shorney, Managing Director of Dudley’s, said: “We are excited to be working on these two brilliant, new projects. The facilities will help the forces in their professional development, continuing to serve and benefit communities in the South Wales and Gwent regions.

“We’ve worked with BAM Construction and Willmott Dixon before on a range of projects and it’s great to be working with them again.”

Dudley’s Aluminium offers clients full in-house design and production facilities. The aluminium fabricator has completed many successful and prestigious projects within the education, health, commercial, retail and defence sector throughout the UK and Channel Islands.
