Wright Engineering is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a high value contract by ISOVER to replace end of life ducting at its Runcorn facility.

ISOVER is part of the Saint-Gobain group and a leading manufacturer and supplier of mineral wool insulation products and systems.

The challenging design, construction and location of the ducting dictates that this is not just your typical ducting replacement work. Nevertheless, it has given Wright Engineering the perfect opportunity to showcase its cutting-edge surveying and design techniques.

Using the industry leading Tekla software, the original installation has undergone laser scanning and a 3D model of the structure has been generated. This model has enabled the Wright Engineering design team to produce significantly detailed and reliable drawings of the new ducting and provide a full analysis of the optimum material for use in its fabrication.

The contract is being is overseen by Pete Bussey (Project Manager) who commented ‘The contract will be demanding but final result will be very rewarding. The installation of the new ducting is time critical due to ISOVER manufacturing schedule. Therefore, we have had to utilise innovative approaches and methodology both at design and the impending installation stage of the project’.

Chris Boden-Hook (Managing Director) said ‘The tender process was rigorous, so I am delighted that the company has been awarded this contract, it’s a big win. This award further demonstrates the strength and quality of Wright Engineering and its skilled workforce and the trust that major companies have in our ability to deliver complex projects under significant time pressures’.

He further added ‘Wright Engineering has a strong and ongoing relationship with the Saint-Gobain group and a 30-year association with British Gypsum (also part of the Saint-Gobain Group). We look forward to working with ISOVER and delivering a first-class service’.
