Further evidence of housing market recovery shown in production of site accommodation by Nottingham firm

Danzer Ltd’s recent positive performance in the construction sector is perhaps further evidence of a resurgent housing market. The increased demand for the company’s pre-fabricated anti-vandal buildings from residential house builders including Taylor Wimpey, Barratt and Jones Homes, strengthens the view that the domestic new build sector is growing with a confidence not seen since before the banking crisis.

AV Group unveil new modular building

New AV Group office in Denton

Watch this space…
AV Group are set to unveil new modular building accommodation
We cleared our desks, packed our bags, unplugged our computers and waved goodbye to our modular buildings on Windmill Lane a few weeks ago. They have served us well, but like any older building they were beginning to look a bit jaded around the edges so we decided it was time to treat ourselves to what we do best for our clients – a brand new modular workspace with the highest quality finishes and facilities – new workspaces, new loos, new meeting rooms and a new kitchen.
We’ve included rainwater harvesting so we can wash our vehicles and hire units and we are especially looking forward to a cosy Winter 2013 with the extra insulation and double glazing.

Now we are putting the finishing touches to our brand new home here at our Denton HQ and can’t wait to show you the final results. Pictures coming very soon….

AV Group supporting The Africa Trust

We at the AV Group and Danzer Limited are aware that keeping our staff members hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the work day. As a result, we decided to invest in water coolers from AquAid – our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our company the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves.

Our decision to install a water cooler from AquAid means that for each one of the machines that we have, we have donated £20 per year per cooler to The Africa Trust.

Through our contributions to The Africa Trust, an ‘Elephant Pump’ is being installed in Africa on our behalf. This pump will bring much needed, clean, fresh drinking water and improve the quality of life of those who will have access to our well.

Our company’s name will be displayed proudly on our well and we look forward to adding some photos and letters of thanks from the villages to our site in the near future.

AquAid, along with their sister company Perfect Printer Cartridges have to date donated over 6 Million Pounds to Charity. www.aquaid.co.uk

AV Group Bids Farwell To Successful Co-Operative Project


©BAM Construction Ltd

AV Group has undertaken one of its biggest ever de-commissioning projects with the removal of its temporary accommodation installation at Manchester’s new Co-Op HQ. The Denton firm provided 56 bright green, modular units, stacked four-high, providing 17,920 sq ft of accommodation during the construction phase at the site in central Manchester.

The AV Group was appointed by BAM Construction in August 2012 to provide temporary accommodation facilities for the construction team and subcontractors and the company invested £250,000 in the manufacture of additional new modular units for the project. The new units we produced in Nottingham by its manufacturing arm Danzer Ltd.

It is the first time that the AV Group has provide a four storey facility and the entire system has been designed, manufactured, installed and removed by the Denton-based company. Removal work is being carefully planned to ensure minimum disruption to nearby residents during the early mornings and evenings whilst adhering to haulage restrictions which prevent large loads being moved during peak traffic hours.

The modular building provided facilities including a temporary tool hire shop, a canteen and kitchen, offices and meeting rooms. It also provided welfare facilities including toilets, showers, drying rooms, office and first aid space, store rooms, communal room and first aid. A Muslim WC and foot wash facility were also included to support the ethnically diverse work force.

AV Group also installed a viewing platform on the roof of the temporary accommodation to allow BAM and the Co-Op team to view the entire site with ease. Specially designed enclosed staircases supported promotional BAM site banners to promote their presence on site.

Commenting on the project AV Group’s Helen Scott said: “This has been a significant project for us in many ways, not just because of its sheer scale but due to its wide variety of uses and the challenging logistics and health and safety measures involved in safely erecting and removing such a huge building together. We have a very narrow window each day during which we can remove the units but we will be clear of the site by the end of the week.“

She continued: “The building was designed to reflect BAM exemplary environmental credentials so features such as increased energy saving, improved insulation, water saving devices and controlled lighting were specified throughout.”

The project also included a security point with turnstile access and induction facility to ensure secure access to and full accountability of all people on site at all times.

The 325,000 sq ft new HQ for Co-operative was designed by 3D Reid and built by BAM Construction.
