VALUE: £1.8 million
Bed and sofa manufacturer Sweet Dreams awarded this £1.8m contract to Barnfield for the construction and development of their new, state-of-the-art storage facility at Primrose Mill, Burnley.
The new 52,000 sqft facility will allow Sweet Dreams to receive all deliveries to the one site, and also to expand production operations and create a permanent showroom.
Sweet Dreams, who were established in 1988 and who now employ over 150 people, are expanding fast. While quality divans and mattresses remain the company’s core product, last year the company started manufacturing their own collection of sofas and chairs and they’ve also become sole distributors for a bedroom cabinet manufacturer.
The new building was developed on land next to the existing working building and keeping production going throughout the construction process was critical.
“We chose Barnfield Construction because of their considerable experience as well as their keen price and excellent specifications. We choose to work with local companies wherever possible, so is a bonus that they are based in the next town. We are really pleased with the work Barnfield have done. Co-operation and understanding during the development was excellent.”
