A busy Summer of projects in the food & drink industry isn’t letting up any time soon as the installation is now in full swing for an individual desserts manufacturer in London.
Stancold will be working alongside an end-to-end fit-out specialist as part of this project to assist in the internal fit-out of the production facility. The end user required an extension and refurbishment of the existing space in order to improve its layout and logistically make more sense. As part of this, our scheme of works involves the construction and hygienic fit-out of a goods-in fridge and freezer, a pre-production goods-in unit and a larger production area, with panelling covering over 1500m².
Prior to the start date, Stancold’s food & drink specialist, Sam Taylor, and project manager, Sam Glover, visited site on several occasions to meet with the contractor and end user. In doing so, they were able to work closely with all parties, discussing smaller details within the programme and devising a design and operational workaround for some complexities posed by the structurally ageing nature of the site.
The fit-out will comprise of a Kingspan QuadCore panelling system, ranging from 80mm to 125mm thicknesses, to construct a series of partitions and ceilings. This is to be accompanied by over fifteen doors, ranging in type from sliding chillers to hinged personnel, fulfilling the end user’s specification appropriately. Stancold are also taking care of the concrete floor in the freezer unit and co-ordination of raising another floor within the workspace.
The site will remain operational throughout the duration of the works, so health and safety considerations will need to be taken at all times. Working under such conditions is not uncommon for the Stancold team, who are very experienced in ensuring that the most appropriate procedures and processes are followed when this is the case.
We look forward to seeing the finished outcome.
