Our installations team working on the construction of the
Southbank Custody Facility, in Grimsby, has received a quality award for their
craftsmanship on the £14 million 36-cell police detention suite.
Andrews Tiles has been contracted by Willmott Dixon to supply
and fix 1500m2 of porcelain tiles to custody cells, holding cells and showers
and on the former Bass brewery site
which also includes a property store and ancillary offices for around 170 staff
on the seaport town’s Birchin Way, which is due to open early next year.
Once operational it will replace outdated custody facilities
at Scunthorpe and Grimsby police stations.
David Clough, Andrews Tiles Managing Director said: “We’re
all very pleased to have received this award which is a great testament to the
skills and craftsmanship of our installations team working there.
particularly pleasing as all works on this project must be completed to
stringent Home Office standards which far exceed normal site tolerances.”
“Our contracting division has built a formidable reputation
for its work and we are regarded as one of the finest installers of terrazzo
flooring, ceramic wall and floor tiling, marble and granite flooring and
cladding companies in the UK; and this is reflected by the fact that we operate
on a national level.”
Willmott Dixon is one of the UK's biggest construction
companies, employing more than 3,500 people and with a turnover of around £1
