James Cleverly visits Swann Group Ltd Posted 30.05.2017
On 25th May, Swann Group were delighted to host a visit to our Braintree manufacturing site by James Cleverly, the Conservative candidate for Braintree. Members of staff spent time with James explaining our training initiatives with apprenticeships and our ICE approved graduate training scheme. (Read more on the scheme here.) He then went onto a tour of our offices and workshops to showcase the 3D structural analysis and design capability and 3D printing techniques, followed by a tour of our fabrication workshops to show the new investments we have made in both new machinery and processes. We were delighted to hear that James has some very passionate and positive views on supporting British and local manufacturing.

Westway Digital OOH Media Structure Posted 02.05.2017
We have recently completed the replacement of an existing advertising structure on the A40, near White City. The previous structure has been dismantled and a new iconic structure incorporating the latest digital technology installed. Swann Group has been involved in the project from the initial concept design through to installation. This involved designing and presenting to our client a conceptual 3D CAD model and structural skeleton model. The installation then involved excellent project management skills to allow the works to be carried out in close proximity to one of London's major arterial routes. The foundation has been enhanced to permit the additional loads associated with the new digital structure, and fabrication of the structure took place in our facility in Braintree. For the install, works were completed at night to enable a traffic management safe zone to be established via a lane closure. This challenging project has utilised all aspects of Swann Group's design capabilities, technical and project knowledge to deliver it successfully to our client.
