Construction commences on new multi-million distribution facility for Valentine Clays
21st September 2016
Construction has commenced on the new Valentine Clay's Headquarters with a ground breaking ceremony at the former Diamond Gimson Works site in Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent. A bespoke ceramic spade was designed and produced by the Potteries-based clay manufacturers to commemorate the special occasion.
Prosurv have been appointed by Valentine Clays as Project Manager and Quantity Surveyor on the scheme, which will be completed in two phases with the 1,700 sq. m distribution and office facilities programmed for completion in May 2017 with production facilities to follow on site in the following years.
The new distribution facility – which will be clad in the colours of four different clays to reflect the heart of the business – will include Valentine Clays head offices, a workshop area and gallery where visitors will be able to observe demonstrations and learn about the clay manufacturing process.
