Project Details
Architect: Lionel Gregory Architects
Location: Poole, Dorset
Main contractor: Jade-Aden Services
Sub contractor: Jade-Aden Services
Completion Date: 06 Jul 2023
Designing and manufacturing gearbox motors for industrial uses, Parvalux Electric Motors Ltd is a 75-year-old British manufacturing firm based on the south coast of England.

To accommodate existing operations and add capacity for the future, Parvalux repurposed an 8.75-acre brownfield site in Poole that combines both an HQ and factory onto the same location.

Work began in 2020 on the 160,000 sq ft site - which includes a £3 million investment in new manufacturing capabilities.

Putting it at the forefront of efforts to decarbonise construction, the eco-friendly building has achieved a net zero rating.


Structural steel and industrial cladding specialists Jade-Aden Services were contracted to deliver the complete design and build of the new facility. Selected through previous working relationships with locally based larger companies, Jade-Aden brought in a local supply chain to complete the project, ensuring high quality throughout the entire project build.


The large roof and wall area gave Jade-Aden the opportunity to install Kingspan composite panels with the use of our DrillFast A4/316 stainless steel composite fastener range.

Fasteners are irreplaceable and meant to match the lifespan of the construction they sit within, so using A4/316 stainless steel fasteners ensure the lifespan of this building is secure, even though the building is situated in a coastal environment.

As a demonstration of our continuing commitment to quality, the fasteners were supplied as part of the QuadCore Assured warranty from Kingspan - providing reassurance for the lifetime of the building.

“Jade-Aden wishes to thank all their supply partners for the support given to deliver the Parvalux project. ”
