ADCO were appointed PSCS to oversee the construction of two three storey steel towers within the existing footprint of two live production buildings.  Before any construction works could commence a hermetically sealed 9m high ‘bubble’ had to be constructed to fully isolate the construction works from the live production area to ensure there was no risk of product contamination. 
To lay the new foundations, the existing factory floor slab was saw cut and removed. An electric digger was used to excavate over 250 cubic metres of material before the new foundations could be poured.  Two cranes were used to erect the steel frame and cladding. 
The most critical element of the construction brief was that the new towers had to be fully constructed and weather proofed before the existing concrete factory roofs could be demolished.

Challenges Faced
- Working adjacent to live production areas.
- Only electric equipment was permitted for use due to the risk of contamination from diesel/petrol fumes.
- Scheduling of works & deliveries. Road closures were in operation from 10am to 8pm daily to facilitate Mondelez deliveries around crane lifting operations.
- Constructing and weatherproofing the building before the existing concrete roof could be demolished.
- Detailed temporary works required to support the existing roofs during demolition.
- Use of two cranes in a very tight working footprint.

 
Innovations
In order to fully construct and weather the towers the steel frame was constructed in two phases. Phase 1 steel was erected internally.  Holes were then made in the existing roof & temporarily weathered to allow the erection of Phase 2 steel


Successes
- The project was completed with no reportable accidents, on time and within budget.
- There was no disruption to Mondelez’s daily production activities.
- The ADCO team worked closely with ARUP and the client to ensure the project objectives were achieved.
- ADCO met two critical phased handover dates for Tower B & C to allow Mondelez trials happen as planned.
- Cronin Sutton completed ADCO temporary design works on this project.
