NG Bailey lands £60m deal with battery giant

NG Bailey will start on site later this year on a £60m construction, mechanical, electrical and plumbing services package at Britishvolt’s new £200m tech centre in the West Midlands.

Winvic is main contractor on the Hams Hall site  just outside Birmingham where Britishvolt is working in partnership with logistics real estate operator Prologis.

NG Bailey is already working with Britishvolt at its £300m Gigafactory project in Northumberland being built by ISG.

Dan Smith, sector director at NG Bailey, said: “At NG Bailey we’re proud to be supporting the development of the UK’s first Gigafactory. We’ve been involved with the Britishvolt journey since August 2020, so it’s fantastic to be selected as construction partner for the scale-up facility at Hams Hall.

“Our experience as the principal contractor delivering the UK Battery Industrialisation Centre (UKBIC), which was an all-new centre of excellence for battery technology, and our knowledge of the Britishvolt manufacturing process means that this new phase will undoubtedly be a great success as we meet customer demands of battery production and transition to a greener future.”

Richard McDonell Project Director, Britishvolt, said: “I am delighted to see Britishvolt working with NG Bailey again as we lead the UK’s journey into re-industrialisation.

“NG Bailey bring fit out knowledge and expertise to the new scale-up facilities which will help the UK build on its home-grown battery intellectual property and level up the country ready for the energy transition.”
