College Students Study New Build in Progress

Shufflebottom welcomed construction management students from Coleg Sir Gar on Friday (February 8th). The main purpose of the visit was to study the new building currently going up at the Cross Hands factory. 

 

The college requested the visit, to underpin students' learning about construction methods and structural steel buildings. 

 

The students, all studying at Level 3, spent time in the drawing office, going through CAD drawings and connection details, before going to the steel-framed buiding under construction, and into the factory. 

 

They were particularly interested in the health & safety aspects of erecting the frame, including the foundations, the plant used to lift and assemble components, and the process of connecting columns to the foundations. The structural engineer's drawings, on how the components of the frame are connected, were also keenly studied. 

 

Our photos show the visit. Peter Dixon (blue helmet outside and speaking in the meeting room inside), Shufflebottoms Health, Safety & Environmental Manager, explained processes and methods to the students, who were accompanied by lecturers Andrew Easton (with beard) and Helen Jeffrey (yellow helmet).

And The Winner Is!!!!!!!

Even though we have Ellie the Elephant as our Shufflebottom logo, we’re not usually very comfortable with blowing our own trumpet. But we can’t say we’re not pleased about our latest good news.
Last Friday, 11th October, Alex Shufflebottom, one of our three directors here at Shufflebottom, won an award at the Women in Business Awards 2019. Now in its 10th year, this prestigious event celebrates the best business women in the Swansea Bay City Region.

She's BACK!!!!!!!!

Earlier this month, drivers passing along the road outside our premises in Cross Hands Business Park, will have been intrigued at the sight of a giant, steel elephant being hoisted into position outside our factory. For some, this was a first glimpse of Ellie, our much-loved logo. For others – including many of us at Shufflebottom – it signalled the long-awaited return of this iconic landmark.
