Commercial workplace specialists, Area, part of the wider Fourfront Group, required a contractor to undertake the design and build of four temperature-controlled facilities within a newly built warehouse in Hampshire.
The warehouse’s new tenant manufactures key machinery systems for the life sciences and biopharmaceutical sectors, and this area will house the final testing phase of their production line.
Stancold worked closely with Area’s team and our recommended refrigeration partner to find a system that would accommodate the required temperature range of +2°C to +26°C.
Where the facility operates a large robotic crane, Stancold also carefully considered different door options and proposed a suitable solution as part of our package.
Stancold delivered four chilled rooms and accompanying doors to facilitate this project’s specification. Kingspan’s Quadcore panel system was the best suited option for this application, thanks to its reliable insulating properties, and space-saving roller-shutter doors integrated within the design to accommodate the warehouse’s crane.
Two areas were built beneath an 8m-high mezzanine floor, so the team created an efficient workaround plan to install ceilings safely, where access was particularly tight. Manoeuvrability of wall panels and use of lifting equipment in this space were also carefully monitored, especially when coupled with other craning machinery within the main warehouse.
Stancold successfully completed the works within 3 weeks, demonstrating strong expertise and faultless construction technique for this application.
