REIDsteel plays key role in $32.9m civic centre construction

2018-01-25T15:09:12+00:00 January 25th, 2018|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , |

A multi-million dollar civic centre constructed from prefabricated steel sections manufactured 5,000 miles away at REIDsteel is set to open in the heart of Belize City.

REIDsteel has performed the structural design, detailing and fabrication, including the cladding and glazing for the landmark project in the Central American country.

The Belize Civic Center, costing $32.9m Belize Dollars (£12.7m), is due to be officially opened early this year.

It includes an air-conditioned arena with a seating capacity of 4,500 for sports and entertainment. The complex includes international standard basketball and volleyball courts, practice courts, offices, media boxes, changing rooms, parking and a deck area for boats to dock.

REIDsteel project engineer Pepe Oliva said: “There has been tremendous interest in Belize about the new national civic centre.

“It is possibly the largest public construction project in the country’s history. Although we have designed, made and supplied many buildings in this part of the world, it is still incredibly rewarding to deliver a project of this magnitude on time and on budget to the client’s satisfaction.”

He added: “Like most of our buildings in Central America and the Caribbean, […]

Chancellor urged to be positive in Budget

2017-11-17T18:17:20+00:00 November 17th, 2017|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Our managing director Simon Boyd has urged Chancellor Philip Hammond to take a positive approach to businesses and Brexit in his Budget next week.

The Chancellor will reveal his plans for the year ahead next Wednesday, November 22, before the House of Commons.

Simon said: “The Chancellor is drinking in the last chance saloon. This is the final full Budget before Brexit and comes as negotiations with the EU reach crunch point.

‘Spreadsheet Phil’ must get his numbers right to ensure that we have an economy fit for Brexit whatever the outcome, and that includes setting aside more funding for a ‘no deal’ scenario.

“It means greater support for businesses, including measures to boost investment and productivity, so they are ready to fully grasp the great opportunities on offer once we are out of the EU.

“One of the simplest yet most effective things the Chancellor could do at the despatch box is strike a positive tone to reflect our optimism in a post-Brexit Britain and show negotiators in Brussels that we are embracing the future with confidence with […]

Congratulations to all of the finalists in this year’s Dorset Business Awards – especially the three nominees for the UK Exporter of the Year title.

Poole-based firms Actisense – Active Research Limited and Aeronautical & General Instruments Limited are on the shortlist along with Trimetals Ltd of Blandford.

As headline sponsor of this newly created category for 2017, it was tough to pick the trio and all are richly deserving of their success in making the shortlist.

Our Managing Director Simon Boyd, who visited the nominees to assist in judging, said: “Well done to everyone at Actisense, Aeronautical & General Instruments and Trimetals on reaching the shortlist.

“It is recognition of the tremendous work their people are doing every day to help their firms grow through overseas trade.

“Exports are incredibly important to the UK economy. The UK’s huge trading deficits can only be addressed through the ingenuity, drive and determination of exporters who can turn this trading deficit into a surplus.

“We wish the UK Exporter of Year finalists, and all of the other categories, the best of luck and look […]
