Chilled Loading Bay for Food Distributor, Dorset

Hunts Foods

Background

As a thriving foodservice business, our client needed to increase their chilled capacity, loading capacity and marshalling areas to cope with peak demands. As Stancold had worked with Hunts in the past, we were delighted to work with them to deliver a solution.

Development

Stancold visited site on several occasions to understand the restrictions and also developed a design, budget and build programme with our client’s on-site team. After several revisions and amendments, a final scheme was settled and budget fixed.

Solution

Kingspan KS1100 CS Quadcore wall panels enclosed the existing exposed canopy and provided valuable insulation as well as protection from the elements, which were cut to suit the variety of existing floor levels. During the summer, the heat underneath the canopy was putting an extra burden on the low-temperature coldstore. Our solution of creating a chilled loading bay not only added capacity but enabled the cold store to work more efficiently.

150mm thick Kingspan coldstore ceiling panels infilled the void between the new external wall and the existing building, finishing the insulated envelope ready for the client’s refrigeration contractor to install the temperature control system and lighting.

The client’s builder had created the extended additional loading bay areas for us to install our new dock levellers, loading bay doors, retractable dock shelters and traffic light systems.

The project was completed with our rapid rise, sectional up and over and personnel doors.

You did a professional job, we’re very likely to use you again
