Did you know SIG Construction Accessories have a specialist Infrastructure and Major Projects Team?

Infrastructure and Major projects are a crucial part of any government agenda, covering important areas such as nuclear and power stations, sustainable energy projects (both onshore and offshore), rail, highways, defence & MOD, airport regeneration, ports and harbours, and water and utilities, including sewer systems and flood defences.

The National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline (NICP), outlines the UK government plans to invest in the country over the next decade. As a supplier in the infrastructure sector, we have analysed the layers of details, calculated our potential involvement, and forecasted what we need to do to best meet each project’s needs.

Discussions with Tier 1 contractors begin early, specifications are assessed, product designs and extensions are aligned, tenders are submitted, and logistics are geared up to provide a timely supply to these sites in volume. Product specialists and project managers play key roles as some suppliers have staff that literally work on-site for years to ensure installation standards are adhered to for each element of the job, and that’s why at SIG Construction Accessories, we are building a major projects & infrastructure team to focus exclusively on this massive opportunity.

SIG Construction Accessories supplies products in:

The appeal of SIG Construction Accessories in this market is our national network of branches that can be aligned to support different infrastructure projects. As a business, we specialise in the logistics of getting materials to the site in volume or small call-offs, and we have certificates of approval, driver packs, and delivery mandates required to service these specialist sites.

SIG Construction Accessories is involved in the early stages of any major project determined by the type of products it supplies. As the project develops, other divisions of the SIG Group become involved.

Case Study - Hinkley Point Power Station

SIG Construction Accessories has been supplying the Hinkley Point Power Station, which is being developed by EDF Energy, since its construction began in 2017. However, the aboveground construction of Hinkley has only recently begun, and it is not expected to be completed until 2031. The project is estimated to have around 6,500 construction workers on-site, and the scheduled material deliveries are compared to a military operation due to their large scale and operational challenges.

These infrastructure projects require a significant amount of advanced planning and spending. For instance, SIG Construction Accessories are currently rebuilding our Norwich branch primarily to potentially support the hosting and supply of materials to Sizewell C, which is set to begin construction in October 2024 and is projected to take between nine and twelve years to complete. Whilst work on this project may be scheduled to start in October, earthworks have started, and the tendering process is virtually complete, with preliminary works around the area already starting to roll out.
