One-Hour Fire-Rated Partition for New Industrial Unit, Swindon

Main Contractor

Background 

As the Swindon industrial park underwent an expansion, Stancold won the tender to complete the sub-dividing fire-rated partitioning work in a new unit on the site.

Process

Stancold formed a new relationship with the main contractor throughout the project. Discussing the benefits of a composite panel system was a key element within the negotiation process, along with the contractor’s budget and quick turnaround time.

Stancold’s firewall team were able to value engineer a proposal that took their requirements into consideration.

Solution

Due to the height of the building, a horizontal panel installation was required, where approximately 700m² of the Eurobond Mineral Fibre Firemaster system was utilised to achieve a one-hour fire-rating for the partition. Intumescent batt was installed to the top and sides of the wall to maximise fire integrity and was completed with a painted deflection head detail.

With only four weeks between the initial pre-let meeting and our arrival on site, both Stancold’s office-based projects team and on-site installers worked hard to prepare and complete the build to the contractor’s schedule and to their complete satisfaction.
