Two-Hour Firewall & Office For Supermarket Warehouse, Thurrock

Bowmer and Kirkland

Background

We have been working with Bowmer & Kirkland for over a decade. This project is a firewall and office installation to transform an existing warehouse.

Process

Stancold installed a 2-hour rated firewall to form a compartment wall as well as a combination of non-fire rated and 30-minute fire rated ancillary rooms. The fire rated composite wall panels were from Eurobond Laminates and form the approx. 76m long by 14m high divisional wall.

Solution

Stancold also installed 2-hour rated fire protection to the steelwork supporting the wall and formed a 2-hour rated protected roof zone detail to both sides of the wall at a high level. Firestopping materials were used to ensure the integrity of the firewall.

With Stancold being accredited to LPS1500 & 1531, we were the ideal installer for this system as we could offer full certification, giving peace of mind to the client.

The wall installation was phased in order to facilitate ground works. Both phases of the wall installation were completed on time.

In addition, we were also tasked with forming a series of ancillary rooms complete with doors. The kitchen room within the welfare office was required to be 30-minute fire rated, so Stancold applied enhanced details in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure the fire rating was achieved in this area.
