WELSH fabricator Dudley’s Aluminium is returning to Milton Park in Oxfordshire as it secures another innovative project.

The fabricator has previously worked on the MEPC building at the science and technology park which is home to around 250 businesses.

For its newest project, Dudley’s will work with Barnwood Ltd on the Nebula scheme which consists of seven new research and development units across three buildings. The scheme is being built to meet BREEAM ‘Excellent’ sustainability standards and is targeting an A-rating Energy Performance Certificate.

Visible sustainably sourced glue-laminated timber will feature in each building, which will also have vaulted ceilings to accommodate large-scale laboratory and high-tech engineering equipment.

Dudley’s will install Metal Technology System manual and remotely operated windows, commercial doors and capped curtain walling in addition to automatic swing doors on the build.


Colin Shorney, Managing Director at Dudley’s Aluminium, said: “We are really excited to be working with Barnwood Ltd as we return to Oxfordshire for another innovative project. Nebula will provide local businesses with flexible workspaces and opportunities to scale up in a sustainable setting.”


Since 1993, Dudley’s Aluminium has offered clients full in-house design and production facilities, completing many successful and prestigious projects within the education, health, commercial, retail, residential and defence sectors throughout the UK and Channel Islands.


Dudley’s reputation for quality has been recognised with several industry-related accreditations. The company is CHAS accredited, Constructionline registered and BM Trada certified to manufacture enhanced security products to align with PAS24:2016 and BS 4873.
