Bangor Pier Inspection

Datrys has been working alongside Bangor City Council on the restoration of Garth Pier, Bangor.

Restoration of the Pier – almost 0.5km in length built originally in 1896 – is seen as a catalyst to maintaining the vibrancy of this part of Bangor, with its striking aspect towards the Menai Straits and the Great Orme.

The essential first stage of the restoration process was the description of the current condition of the Pier structure. The City Council appointed Datrys to carry out the visual survey. Continue reading => Bangor Pier Inspection

Major Creamery Project

Datrys has been appointed as Civil and Structural Engineers for a multi-million pound investment plan announced by South Caernarfon Creameries.

The project will extend the cheese production facilities of South Caernarfon Creameries and will entail the conversion of part of the present Cheese Store into a Production Area.

A high care area will be created and meet stringent food safety standards. A 10m high fire wall will also be constructed and Datrys has designed the barrier in such a way as to minimise additional fire protection to the existing structure. Continue reading => Major Creamery Project
