Eurovia: PolyBitumens Production Facility

It's a great feeling at Pleydell Smithyman Limited when one of our projects becomes a reality, the latest being a new concept production plant for Polymer Modified Bitumen and Bitumen Emulsion,Grays, Essex, which is nearing completion on site. The Manufacturing Facility will produce various products that will be used on infrastructure including roads and highways network, predominantly supporting Eurovia UK's operations across the country.

Pleydell Smithyman Limited worked in partnership with the in-house project management team providing initial 'corporate' and concept designs to support a successful planning application. During the "build phase" we provided advice for the Building Regulations application, and design and coordination for both contractor designed production buildings and the fit-out of the staff facilities unit.
