A Midlands building contractor has handed over the keys of a £2m service centre in Stafford to a global energy technology company following a successful six-month build.
OMICRON Electronics UK Limited moved into its flagship facility at Redhill Business Park following construction by Shropshire based Pave Aways.
The two-storey building houses OMICRON’s Academy, which serves as a technical, training and sales centre for staff from electrical utilities, industrial plants, equipment manufacturers and service companies.
The firm transferred to its new site from Stafford Technology Park.
The contemporary steel frame building covers 750m² and was clad in a mixture of lightweight cladding, polycarbonate
Pave Aways managed the entire build, including external works, service connections, and mechanical and electrical installations, at a contract value of £1.47m.
The firm worked with local contractors from Staffordshire, Shropshire and the wider West Midlands including Stafford based KRE-8 Design and Build and AB Projects Ltd, as well as employing local skilled site staff for the project.
The OMICRON Service Centre is the second high-profile project that Pave Aways has completed in the town in just over a year.
It finished the £2.3 million-pound refurbishment of a teaching block at the Blackheath Lane campus of Staffordshire University in July 2016.
Managing Director Steven Owen said: “We were delighted to win the contract to manage the construction of OMICRON’s purpose-built facility and to complete the work in just over six months.
“The finished building has resulted in a flexible space that has been built to reflect their unique needs.
“It’s also an eye-catching contemporary building that echoes OMICRON’s innovative approach.”

“We, as customers, asked for the best in the region and I believe we have it. Thanks from OMICRON.”
Pave Aways has been fulfilling building contracts for over 40 years across Shropshire and Mid and North Wales.
With more than 100 employees and a turnover of in excess of £25m, the firm works on a wide variety of developments from residential schemes to multi-million-pound new build and refurbishment projects across a wide range of sectors.
