New Dairy Factory

Yeo Valley

Background

Yeo Valley are a family run business based in Somerset producing organic dairy products since 1960’s.

Requirement

Stancold have expanded the existing dairy production facility with two large 1375m² production areas, hygienic food safe corridors and a blast chiller area, overlaid by a large 2640 m² self-supporting ceiling. The partition between the existing factory and around the perimeter was 2 hour fire rated wall.

Solution

From the preliminary design and feasibility stages, Stancold worked closely with the client to ensure all elements of the projects were considered. The project had to be carefully managed as we ‘broke through’ the live factory at several points, all of which we managed with ease.

You’ve done a fantastic job.
