The Challenge

Oxford Mezzanine Floor and Factory Fit Out Project – OGM has been trading for 50 years and still owned by the same family, it is one of the most experienced plastic molded injectors in the UK. Due to it’s continued growth and requirement to fulfill greater order volumes for it’s customers it acquired a new building in excess of 35,000 square feet

As a long time supplier to OGM Spaceway were called in to assist in the design and layouts of the new factory and the main area that required detailed attention was the crane and structural steelwork to support it. Not only did the steelwork have to support the crane but we also designed it with integral walkways and flooring so that products that supplied the machines in the factory area below could be stored on it.  After various in depth discussions with OGM and there partner engineering consultants a design was agreed and Spaceway was awarded the task of manufacturing and installing the steelwork and crane.

Spaceways Approach

The first critical exercise was to mark out the floor where all the support columns were to land as due to the weight of the structure piling was a requirement

Once the piling was completed the steelwork was then delivered and assembled on site in phases, there was also a lot of onsite welding and fabrication to take into account due to the complexity of the design. Once the supporting steelwork was installed a new Demag crane was loaded on to the rails.

The overall installation provided OGM with the state of the art facility they required and provided a showroom for all clients to come in and see.
