National multi- million pound projects
Dudley’s has recently completed a series of high-profile projects after being appointed by retail-leader Sainsbury’s. Dudley’s has been involved in a number of projects up and down the UK which amass to an estimated value in excess of £50 million. As well as strengthening its relationship with Sainsbury’s, Dudley’s has been taking extra steps to support the local community of the sites it is working on as well as making concerted efforts to be environmentally efficient. The company, which is also an Associate member of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, has completed a three-sided extension to Sainsbury’s, Thornhill, Cardiff. The work which took eight months to complete transformed the popular store. It boasts a mezzanine floor, new café and extra sales floor space has been created, taking it from 33,000 Sqft to almost double at 59,000 Sqft. The Dudley’s team also reconfigured the existing car park linking it to the new Public realm area, which is adjacent to the main road opposite the store.
Extensions to three Sainsbury’s stores in the Midlands started early this year and completed at the end of the summer. Sainsbury’s, Osmaston Park, Derby in the East Midlands became a project with the local community at the forefront of plans.
An open day was held for the pupils of a local school to enable the students to experience the day-to-day operations of a live, trading, build and refurbishment site, in a safe environment. Also in the East Midlands, Sainsbury’s Kimberley in Nottingham underwent a store re-fit as well as an extension. The construction team behind the extension is continuing its work by supporting the local community in painting and refurbishing the classrooms and changing rooms in Kimberley School. Dudley’s, in conjunction with Sainsbury’s, used rain water harvesting for irrigation, insulating site accommodation with thermostatically controlled heaters and using hand driers instead of paper towels. In addition, hoardings were recycled and wastage stats, energy and mileage were logged to track and monitor the carbon foot print.
Another extension projected was completed at Sainsbury’s Cannock in the West Midlands. Dudley’s site offices at this store are an ECO model which ran PIR lighting, thermostat heating and push down taps and waterless urinals. Dudley’s also installed a rainwater harvesting tank. All of these initiatives were greatly supported and partially funded by Sainsburys. www.dudleys.uk.com
Ace Janitorial – 40th Anniversary
Ace Janitorial of Sheffield, one of Jangro’s founding organisations in 1980, is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Ace, is the North East’s most successful and resilient independent janitorial supplies company. It has traded through several recessions and remains as successful today as it ever has been with a £2m turnover.
Attercliffe based Ace was formed by Alf Cullumbine who built his business on supplying local steel making and engineering companies with goods from a van at the factory gates.
He built the business on listening to customer needs, sourcing the best products and delivering them on time with a fast personal service. In 1980 when Jangro was setting up with identical business ethics, Alf immediately joined and Ace remains a key player in today’s 40 strong Jangro Membership. Ace remains a family affair today operated by Alf’s sons
Phil, Paul and Mark. It now sells very little to what remains of Sheffield’s Steel industry because the business has evolved to meet the demands of a variety of growing service sectors, but the personal family service remains.
Phil Cullumbine said: “Our business profile has changed greatly. We are now supplying contract cleaners and FM companies as well as many direct accounts in hospitals, care homes, schools and businesses in leisure and tourism. The belief that ‘customer is king’ was passed down from Dad and that will keep us on the right track.” www.acejanitorial.co.uk
