£1.5m Shellfish Processing Facility, Lancashire
AM Seafoods needed to double their production capacity with a new purpose-built facility, grant aided by the Marine Management Organisation and European Fisheries Fund.
The final design incorporates a low care raw goods reception chiller, high care cooking area with steam production, ventilation, various production lines, chilling and packing areas, blast freezers and a holding freezer, as well as staff welfare areas and all of the associated facilities to support this.
As project managers, we co-ordinated the project from sourcing equipment to modifying plans and associated specifications. This required incorporating existing foundations and AM Seafoods’ specially designed complex production facilities as well as staff areas with changing facilities, canteen, offices and ancillary fit-out.
The new facility is designed so that the company has the space to keep growing in a sustainable way.
I think what I appreciated most, was feeling that nothing was too much trouble, and no problem insurmountable. The new facility will allow us to deliver a first class product for many years to come.
Hygienic Partitioning for Automated Sorting Warehouse, Wales
Work is well underway on site in west Wales as Stancold’s installation team complete the hygienic partitioning for a new automated vegetable sorting warehouse.
Our client has been specialising in growing and supplying a range of vegetables, namely potatoes, alongside other seasonal products such as leeks and cabbages, since the 1970s. Formed as part of a collaborative for local farmers to distribute their produce, business is growing from strength to strength. Due to this, they are now introducing an automated sorting warehouse as part of their operations.
Stancold are responsible for supplying and installing four hygienic walls that will house the new automated sorting machinery as well as completing other remedial works on site, including the infill of spaces and replacing other partitions across the facility.
Throughout the planning and design process, our food & drink specialist, Sam Taylor, worked consultatively with the client’s architect to find the most appropriate installation solution for the building’s 19m high ceiling. Where hygienic panels will generally be installed vertically, this was not possible with a building so high. Based on Stancold’s specialist advice, the decision was taken to construct panels horizontally between the existing steelwork, achieving the same food-safe finish while working to the requirements of the end user.
To complete the project, Stancold will be installing over 1400m² of Kingspan Quadcore food-safe insulated panels as well as a number of hinged personnel doors and a vision panel. The team will also be creating penetrations to allow for the pipes and lines of the automated equipment to pass through, working with the requirements of other trades on site to achieve this.
This project has seen Stancold work consultatively and effectively with the end user, architect and main contractor throughout each phase, to ensure that complexities were ironed out and everything ran smoothly.
We’re looking forward to sharing the finished product.

A partnership between Mr Adams and Mr Rowland, two metalworker friends back from the war. Over the years, they became one of the first companies in England making cork filled coldroom panels that were sandwiched between timber frames and vapor repellent faces infilled with rope fibres, bitumen and caulk to create a seal.
Name change to Stancold Coldstore Construction
Where the name originated from is a combination of urban legend and myth. Some say it was the idea of an installer called Stan, some say it was a “clever use” of the concept of 'Standing in the Cold'. However we got here, we are proud of our roots!
The Gillham family steps in
Mervyn Gillham came from a different field and saw the potential within Stancold to become a leading company in this specialist marketplace. In 1997, his son Kevin Gillham joins the team.
Stancold acquires Mercury Coldrooms
Stancold becomes one with the well reputed local coldstore business, Mercury Coldrooms, bringing a wealth of knowledge and a great team of people to the company. Today, the majority of the senior management team of Stancold and our top project managers are originally from Mercury.

This exciting change has allowed us to consolidate all teams, knowledge and resource into one central hub, whilst being able to effectively cover the whole of the UK and beyond.
