Dudley's - More at Bristol for Ali Firm

28 October 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970

Dudley’s Aluminium have begun work on a new contract with Wilmott Dixon Ltd to help construct the new Aurora Office Development at Finzels Reach, Bristol.

The 95,000sqf.t grade A offices will be part of the Finzels Reach development in central Bristol and will carry the top environmental BREEAM Outstanding rating.

Among the site’s facilities are electric car charging points and 112 cycle spaces.

The development will offer a combination of commercial and residential properties, and is part of a wider-regeneration of Bristol’s city centre.

The construction of a 168 bedroom Premier Inn Hotel is underway, as is the work on the pedestrian bridge spanning Bristol’s historic Floating Harbour to Cabot Circus and linking the development to Castle Park. Finzels Reach is expected to be completed in June 2017.


£1.25m of curtain walling

Dudley’s Aluminium has secured a contract in excess of £1.25m with Willmott Dixon Construction Ltd to provide Metal Technology capped and silicone glazed curtain walling, windows, doors and roof glazing at the site. The firm will also provide high-performance glass and specialist feature glazing alongside automatic doors.

Commenting on the project, Dudley’s managing director Colin Shorney said: “We are very happy to be working on the Aurora office development. This high-specification building will be a great addition to Bristol’s city centre.”
