“The Waterman team has been integral in helping us create and bring to life this truly exceptional scheme that pushes the boundaries of sustainable design.”

Featured Project

Siemens Gamesa Wind Turbine Blade Factory

This scheme will see Siemens Gamesa’s wind turbine blade manufacturing facility in Hull doubled in size through the addition of two new buildings, enabling the production of larger, more efficient blades. Covering 42,000 sqm, the new £82m units will accommodate the manufacture of next-generation offshore wind turbine blades, which will see this become the largest facility of its kind in the UK.

Having delivered structural and environmental consultancy services for the existing 36,000 sqm facility, completed in 2016, Waterman’s team once again teamed-up with contractor, VolkerFitzpatrick, to provide civil, structural, M&E, environmental and health and safety consultancy services for the new buildings.

Working closely with architects, Race Cottam Associates, our specialists delivered the structural design for the scheme. Ensuring the steelwork incorporated 40m clear spans with a working height of 18m and substantial load-bearing capability, the design was carefully considered to accommodate the gantry and console cranes utilised during the wind turbine blade manufacturing process.

Controlling internal environmental conditions is critical to allow Siemens Gamesa to produce turbine blades with a high degree of accuracy and consistency, and our mechanical and electrical team designed services for lighting, power, water, humidity control, ventilation and cooling for the new facility, in addition to upgrades and replacements of the mechanical services for the existing facility. With sustainability a key theme of the development, our designs focused on minimising waste whilst prioritising both energy and carbon efficiency.


“Waterman has consistently helped us innovate and stay ahead of the curve with lateral thinking and engineering approaches that have product, customer and commercial focus.”

Through our commitment to a ten-year lease on 3,813 sq ft of prime office space located on the fifth floor of central Nottingham’s Alan House, the move reflects sustained growth in our Midlands workstreams and will allow us to drive our collaborative multidisciplinary working approach.

In addition to offering a wide variety of collaborative spaces, the move will also provide our team with an improved welfare offering and will boost their green and active travel options through the extensive local public transport network and onsite bike storage area, showers, changing and drying facilities.

Led by Jonathan Purcell, Ruth Jeffs and Dominic Hardy, the team is looking forward to welcoming existing and new clients to our new premises from 9th May, located at Alan House, Clumber Street, Nottingham NG1 3ED.

Commenting on the relocation, Waterman’s Managing Director for Building Services – North, Jonathan Purcell, said: “I’m delighted that we’ve secured our new Nottingham home at Alan House which will offer an inspiring workplace for our team and clients, helping drive our people-focussed, collaborative culture. This move reflects our continued growth in the Midlands, underlining our commitment to supporting the development of this thriving region’s built environment and infrastructure networks.”

Ruth Jeffs, Waterman’s Director for Infrastructure and Environment, celebrated the move, saying: “This relocation is a clear indication of our continued growth and commitment to strengthening our local presence, delivering our full range of engineering and environmental services from the centre of Nottingham. We’d be delighted to welcome clients and colleagues for a chat and coffee with our team!”
