Challenges

The challenge on this project was to pre-fabricate as much of the project off site as possible so as to facilitate early delivery to the customer and reduce the impact of construction on the work of the rest of the site. Additionally, logistics were extremely important on this project due to the access road being in permanent use by the client.


Solution

Working with our cutomer, Poppleton planned the execution of the project utilising pre-fabricated modules (167 off) built at Poppleton’s factory. These modules not only carried the ductwork, but the water services, vacuum pipe work, electrical tray work and also any insulation that was required. Daily deliveries of modules took place at 8.00am each weekday for five weeks. Other benefits that flow from this approach are:

  • Reduction in number of men on site and the impact on site set up
  • Reduction in site generated waste material and therefore skips to remove same
  • Reduction in site installation time of 12 weeks enabling early delivery and reduced site overheads
  • Reduction in exposure to potential accidents
  • Reduction in trades and access equipment requirements on site
  • Reduction in overall cost of project.
  • Improved quality control as the work completed in a factory

Safety

Poppleton delivered these projects with no incidents or accidents of any type and several of our employees won safety awards whilst working on these projects.

 

Novartis Grimsby

Novratis-Grimsby-720

Project Novartis Chemical Production Facility (Grimsby)
Project Engineer David Taylor & Dewi Williams
Site Leads Emyr Jones & Martin Bamber

Challenge

a) To produce and install ductwork within a heavy drugs production facility, co-ordinating the ventilation ductwork with the process pipe work, vessels and cable services.

Solution

a) Poppleton provided 2 Project Engineers to join a team of CAD engineers at our clients office in Manchester where 3D models of the building services were produced. Working with the team Poppleton integrated our CADduct models into the main model for the project. A tangible benefit of this approach was to reduce the number of ductwork clashes on the project to less than 10.


The ductwork on this project served various production areas. Types of ductwork on the site included:

  • HVCA DW 144 medium and high pressure systems.
  • Fully welded galvanised and stainless steel extract systems to SMACNA specification.
  • All ductwork was tested and the project was handed over on time.

Novartis Speke

Novratis-Speke-720

Project                                                          Novartis Vaccine Production Facility (Phase 1 – 3)
Project Engineer Darren Pugh
Site Leads Martin Bamber

Challenge

Production at this plant was urgently required for the following Flu season.  The building envelope already existed so the challenge for the services team was to design, draw, manufacture, install and commission the systems within a very tight programme.

Solution

Working with the client and other contractors, Poppleton assisted with the co-ordination of the systems working within the 3D model to ensure there was sufficient time to produce such large quantities of very complex ductwork runs. As a SMACNA member Poppleton was able to offer the American Standards of Ductwork integrity required by the client on several of the Ventilation Systems.

Scope

Ductwork produced and installed on the project included:

  • HVCA DW 144 medium and high pressure systems
  • SMACNA specification fully welded extract systems togetherwith Jacobs extract blast proof systems.


All ductwork was tested and the commissioning programme was achieved with Novartis taking over the building on time.

Safety

Poppleton delivered this project with no incidents or accidents of any type. This resulted in the client presenting the contractors with a 250,000 hours worked with "No lost time" incident certificate.

Project New Plant - Sunderland
Project Engineer David Taylor

Challenges

The challenges on this project were two-fold:

a) The constant change of design input from both the designer and Nissan together with the "handover dates" required in a production facility.

b) The requirement for the Ductwork systems serving the cleanroom production area to deliver extremely low humidity air to the Clean room. Any leakage from the ductwork would compromise the production process and therefore lead to failure.

Solutions

a) Working on 3D models with our client, the project was managed to achieve every milestone date set by the customer.

b) Working with our client and the Consultant, Poppleton provided a workable solution to the construction requirements that would deliver the lowest air leakage commercially available (European Class D Leakage) using DW 144 Class C high pressure ductwork without the need to fully weld to the system.

c) The solution required Ductwork systems to pass the leakage test "first time every time" and enabled our client to hand over the largest Clean Room in Europe on time and within the exacting specification and budget required by NISSAN
