About the company we are working with:-
Nopinz are an innovative cycling clothing business who create hand made and fully customisable kit helping the athlete to go faster and longer. What makes them stand out is their product is designed and manufactured entirely in the UK
What were they trying to resolve:-
Due to huge growth in their business Nopinz had outgrown their current premises and required more space to design and manufacture their products.
What was the solution:–
Nopinz approached Western Industrial to take their vision and ideas to a fully compliant build.
We started looking at the floor space required and a mezzanine floor to create an open plan office space was the best idea. We designed an open plan office with separate meeting room formed with a seamless glass partitioning system. A dual lit luminaire was installed from the fabric of the building as part of the first-floor lighting scheme.
Underneath Western Industrial created a layout to form a forward-facing customer entrance and foyer. Behind this is needed to house an employee breakout area along with welfare facilities and a plant room for a small data centre and electrical switchgear.
The rest of the unit was to be used as production space with Western Industrial designing a flexible electrical installation for easy expansion at a late date as the business grows. We utilised high level busbar trunking to offer a cost-effective solution to their immediate requirements but also an increased level of flexibility moving forward. Extraction from the machines was installed using a spiral ducting system fitted directly to the machines ducting out the external cladding if the building.
Externally Western Industrial designed a containment system to seamlessly transfer external plant power as well as services to and from the main building. Siting the compressors externally in this environment was the only option.

What was the result:-
A fresh new working environment that has been designed and installed to meet their needs. An open plan feel keeps everyone working together right through from design to the finished product going out the door.
