Flann Microwave Logo - Asbestos Removal logoGwella Contracting Services were appointed as the Principal Contractor for a large factory refurbishment by highly reputable and well known to their specialist industry, Flann Microwave Ltd.

With the help of European funding and successful business growth, the Flann senior management team decided their purpose-built factory, which occupies an area of 1800m2 situated in attractive gardens with views over rolling Cornish countryside on the edge of Bodmin, was due for a much deserved upgrade.

The largest challenge of the project was keeping the factory operational and safe whilst the refurbishment moved from area to area over the duration of works.This required many weeks
of planning, communication, honesty and transparency from all involved within the project along with a detailed programme of works which was adhered to, ensuring disruption was kept to a minimum and thereby not affecting Flann’s busy working schedule from day-to-day.

The scope of the works included internal strip out, asbestos removal, groundworks and an all new air conditioning upgrade to required areas. Updated suspended ceiling grids, tiles and LED lighting were installed, re-decoration, new improved vinyl flooring, new fire resistant wall panel systems and skirting, fire doors and new windows throughout the factory along with a bespoke newly designed fire rated forge for the factory to increase production efficiency on completion of the project.

“I would like to thank Gwella Contracting for all of the efforts you made carrying- out our factory refit, working around our normal day-to-day activities with minimal disruption. It was a pleasure working with your team and hope we may be able to do business in the future.”

Mr Cliff Venables, Premises Manager
