Innovia Security Ltd / Bank of England




Wigton, Cumbria


13 months

The main work phases for this project included:

  • Site clearance
  • Permanent access routes from the adjacent factory site
  • Bulk earthworks including construction of flood prevention swale
  • Ground stabilisation and vibropiling


  • Drainage including attenuation and outfall control
  • Steelwork and cladding for the new factory structure
  • Full factory and office build works
  • External works including concrete aprons, access roads and footways plus soft and hard landscaping

The project was initially due to take 12 months to complete, however an immense amount of additional instructed works and some service diversions provided a 6 week extension. The project value increased from £8m to over £11m.

Although this is the largest contract Story Contracting have won to date, our team adapted to these changes to provide an end result impressing both the client, Innovia, and the end client, the Bank of England.

The high security demands surrounding this project created challenges, but these did not prevent our team from completing the project on schedule and to an exceedingly high standard.

Our team demonstrated proactive management of unforeseen changes, resulting in additional works not affecting original completion date.
