Caunton Engineering has invested £5M in a new manufacturing facility at its Moorgreen site in Nottinghamshire.

Called the Plane Building, the new building has a total floorspace of 3,442m² and includes both workshop and office space as well as a 25m-long loading dock.

Caunton Managing Director Simon Bingham, said: “The building offers us more space for manufacturing structural steelwork for the construction industry, and also allows us to adopt more sustainable methods.”

The structure is 7.5m high and the roof has an uninterrupted span of 30m. The workshop is serviced by three electric overhead cranes.

A state-of-the-art surface water treatment system has been installed, along with energy saving features like solar thermal panels to heat water and roof lights to maximise natural daylight.

In addition to these sustainability innovations, Caunton has also made a planning application for installing a wind turbine at the new building, in line with government objectives to produce 10% of the UK’s energy from renewable sources by 2010.
