Overview.

Following our phenomenal success in completing the phase one works in just eight months, Curo Construction seamlessly transitioned to the second phase of the development, which comprised the main works.

Started in December 2021 and completed in the spring of 2023, this 1,500,000 sq ft development included a large-scale cut and fill exercise, retaining walls, ground stabilisation, site-wide drainage and infrastructure, and external works, delivering two film studios, a workshop, and a multi-storey car park. At its peak, the team expected 280 lorry movements and approximately 550 tons of concrete per day, with up to 120 operatives on-site during the envelope and fit-out stage. Multiple site entrances were created to ensure the site could cope with the volume of lorry movements and to mitigate disruption to the local community.

Curo Construction worked closely with the client and design teams to firm up the program, design, and procurement strategies to release phases of work and secure materials as cost plans were finalised. It was this collaborative approach that ensured the whole development, beyond Phase 2B, remained on track to be completed by the beginning of 2024, providing the UK with one of the world’s finest film and TV production centers: Cine Valley.
