Our new home has won a national award.
Our 350,00ft2 site, in Chepstow, Monmouthshire, was named Workplace Design of the Year at the Insider Wales Property Awards at Cardiff City Hall last night, June 28.
The facility was designed by Cardiff-based Rio Architects and opened in May last year, becoming part of the largest single investment in a manufacturing facility in Wales.
Lee Protheroe, Senior Associate at Rio Architects said;
“Rio Architects are delighted and honoured to receive the Insider Wales Property Award for the best Workplace Design of the Year 2018 for the AluK Headquarters in Chepstow. We would like to thank AluK for the fantastic opportunity to deliver a high quality and modern working environment. The design concept aspired to provide AluK with a platform to showcase their products, which is realised with the new dynamic façade, reception area, workspaces and the AluK Design Studio. The new factory space is naturally lit and provides extensive production facilities together with a state of the art research and development area. An excellent team effort delivered this outstanding office and industrial development that represents a significant investment by AluK.”
Judges were particularly impressed by the building’s new façade, innovative paint line, maximised natural light, break out spaces and a more efficient factory layout.
Our managing director Russell Yates said:
“We are naturally overjoyed that our headquarters has won such a prestigious national award. We worked incredibly hard with Rio Architects to realise our vision. It is truly an honour to have all the time, investment and effort of everyone involved recognised by Wales’ biggest business title. We would very much like to thank Rio Architects for a wonderful job on our new home. The award is certainly well deserved.”
The move was part of our commitment to boost production capacity, support innovations in product design, showcase products, and provide warehousing and office space.
The awards category, which debuted this year, and has been added to celebrate the growing number of innovative, high-quality office, and workplace fit-outs and refurbishments in Wales.
