5,000m² Food-Safe Fit-Out for Expanding Chinese Wholesaler, Birmingham

Our experience within the food & drink industry allows us to work closely with a range of clients, including end users, main contractors and project management consultants, to successfully complete fit-out projects nationwide. In doing so, we have been able to build solid working relationships within the industry and provide recommendations between parties where required.

On this basis, we’re pleased to announce our next project for the quarter, where we’re currently working within a brand-new production facility, as our client undergoes a relocation in Birmingham. As consumer demand for vegan and vegetarian alternatives surges, the company’s bean curd product offering has seen a steady incline during recent years, which has now required them to move to a site that can better accommodate their growing operations.

Following initial discussions with the wholesale specialist over two years ago, we were able to recommend a trust project management contractor to work on the full turnkey package.

In doing so, we have taken a collaborative approach to the design and specification, working closely with the contractor to nominate a suitable panel system and construction details based on the end user’s requirements.

Within this project, Stancold are responsible for over 5,000m² of internal panelling works to form a number of food-safe areas, including main production, dry goods storage, an egg workshop and soy production. Designed for hygienic environments, Kingspan’s Quadcore panel system, will be utilised throughout this area, alongside Mineral Fibre panelling where a one-hour fire-rated area is required against a boundary wall. Through a turnkey panel specification, the team will work to create bespoke light and window fittings that adhere to our client’s finer construction details.

The team will also be completing the external cladding to the building’s new extension, including its roof, where the finish to the panel system has been designed to withstand the elements on the outside with standard white food-safe internally-facing.

As we are a month into the construction phase, we look forward to reporting on our progress on this project during the quarter.
