Bristol Office at Cutting-Edge of New Technology
Bristol office has been keeping busy with a range of regular contracts – from sales and marketing suites for house builders and Covid testing stations to one of the latest cutting-edge technologies.
This contract involved the provision of a modular building with linked building for Geocubed Limited for an office for the launch of their renewable energy project which was launched at the G7 Summit in Cornwall earlier this summer where international presidents and statesmen visited the site.
Geo3 received funding from the UK Government “Getting Building Fund” to build a pioneering pilot lithium extraction plant. This project is a collaboration between Cornish Lithium Ltd. and Geothermal Engineering Limited (GEL). The pilot plant will use Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) technology to recover lithium from geothermal waters at GEL’s United Downs Deep Geothermal Project in Cornwall.
Manager, Kate Kirk, commented: “It was a prestigious contract and very high profile, given the G7 Summit and the media interest surrounding renewable energy and the Summit.”
Closer to home, the team said a sad farewell to previous manager, Dennis Gay, who retired and departed in the spring.
Now Blair Griffin is off on maternity leave to give birth to her first baby and Alex Fitzgerald will take over her role while she is away.
He said: “This is my first experience in the portable buildings industry but the day-to-day machinations of the role are what I am accustomed to and after a crazy year, I wanted to try my hand at something new. Everyone has been incredibly supportive and I have been very well looked after. I have even secured my first sale. There is plenty more to learn, but it will be a very interesting year for me and I look forward to seeing how the role evolves; hopefully I will soon become a ‘cabin pro.’”
Kate concluded: “It has been incredibly busy here with a huge number of fast-moving contracts to be fulfilled. The team has pulled together really well and I am looking forward to the next few months.”
