The first phase of Valentine Clays new distribution facility in Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent has been officially opened.
The building was officially opened with the unveilling of a specially commissioned ‘Firehand’ ceramic art installation, standing two metres high, by former Stoke-on-Trent MP, and new director of London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, Tristram Hunt, outside the new building which forms a stunning centrepiece for the site.
The landmark building is clad in the colours of four different clays to reflect the heart of the business. The distribution facility includes headquarter offices, a workshop area and gallery where visitors can observe demonstrations, view exhibits produced using Valentine Clays’ raw material and learn more about the clay manufacturing process.
Prosurv Consult provided Project Manager and Quantity Surveyor services for the first phase of the development, with the next phase comprising of a new manufacturing facility, expected to commence next year.
