Colorado Group

Kemfine

KemFine is a leading company in the fine chemical industry. With a major plant in Grangemouth, Scotland. The company has years of experience in the custom manufacturing industry and bases its values on quality, safety and the environment.

In December 2008, Colorado Group was awarded the contract for the construction of the new PIP project to house the new vessel expansion, with a project value of £250K. The scheme was designed by Clark Ericksson and involved complex modifications to the existing structural steelwork and steel deck-plating, decommissioning and downtaking of the existing plant, and construction of a new substation, foundations, structural steelwork and cladding. The project was completed in March 2009.

In March 2009 Colorado Group won the project to construct a new modular warehouse. The project value included the drainage and groundwork, structural foundations and steelwork through to the mechanical and electrical building services, and high-specification data and finishes fit-out for the new office facility.

KemFine was delighted with the finished projects and the approach taken by the Colorado team in adding value through managing the budget when changes occurred. From the success on the project, KemFine awarded the follow-on works to upgrade and extend the main car park facility. kemfine2

The Colorado Group is uniquely placed to offer market-leading cost savings through our sister company, Nu-Phalt Ltd. The Nu-Phalt system provides permanent asphalt repairs at a fraction of the cost of traditional means while delivering over 80% of a saving in carbon emissions. The system enabled Colorado to offer a solution that eliminated the need to completely resurface the car park, with the extensive savings being passed on to KemFine.

Following three years of a highly successful working relationship with KemFine, Colorado Group was selected as Kemfine's core maintenance provider and preferred contractor.

The site is a live chemical factory and all our works are carried out under permit to work systems. Colorado’s operatives have all been trained to comply and work in this environment.
