Stancold were extremely pleased to be approached by maritime repair services provider, Choose Design, who were looking to sub-divide their warehouse space in Southampton. Where temporary walls previously existed, passive fire protection was now a key requirement.
Following the submittal of initial budget costs, our industrial partitioning expert, Shaun Jones, completed a detailed site survey. This allowed him to develop a value-engineered solution that utilised existing steelwork on site, as well as both vertical and horizontal installation methods to reduce costs for the client.
Our LPS-approved installation team began their two week-long installation process within 6 weeks of initial contact with the client. We used the perfectly-suited Eurobond Firemaster panel system to achieve the 60-minute fire-rating specified for the firewalls. In order to make most efficient use of the space, a dog-leg design was implemented. Furthermore, allowing the client to sub-divide a certain area of their space more specifically than what would be possible with an individual partition.
Choose Design are soon welcoming new tenants into the sub-divided space, where it will be used for automotive detailing and other related services. Our team worked effectively across the live site to ensure a very quick turnaround on the project as a whole.
The team worked well to minimise disruption on a live site
