AB Agri Project Angus
In May 2015 Playfords secured a contract with Ashe Construction to complete the electrical and fire alarm/security fit-out of a new build premises for AB Agri (a subsidiary of Associated British Foods). This contract was later extended to include a large solar PV installation and a data installation that was secured via the client (AB Agri) direct.
This was Playfords’ first secured contract with Ashe Construction and was in some way based on key personnel’s prior experience of Playfords from a different work stream.
The programme was for 5 months with Playfords having an on-site presence for the duration of the project as well as on site management office space and storage.
As a new build the mains distribution was fully specified to a high standard of componentry by the project’s M&E consultant (Cunnington Clarke).
As AB Agri are at the forefront of innovation in their field they also specified cutting edge designs for areas such as lighting.
All lighting throughout the project was LED, from the DALI controlled open plan lighting system to the feature pendants in reception.
The data contract was secured with AB Agri direct and one of the reasons given for this was Playfords’ willingness to adapt quotes to the client’s requirements and proactively aid the client in offering solutions for the final design.
The project was completed to the programme issued and with zero workmanship snags at handover. Feedback was very positive from both Ashe Construction and AB Agri:
