Freezer, Chiller & Distribution Centre
As a supplier and distributor, Newberry International Produce were looking to build a factory in Gloucestershire to make UK distribution easier.
The full turnkey works with 1099m² of panelling. A coldstore freezer with mobile racking to store stock and three chiller rooms for preparation of the client’s produce. Alongside this was a packing room and loading dock with direct access.
Stancold organised the complete build from ground works, building the freezer and chiller rooms, refrigeration, flooring, lighting and floor slabs with appropriate ramps. We also designed and built a solution to allow a loading bay direct from outside the building into the freezer, a difference in temperature up to 60 degrees.
Co-ordinating multiple trades and the design of the mobile racking were the biggest challenges on this project. Fortunately, the expertise of our contractors and flexibility of the client meant the project went seamlessly.
Potato-Sorting Warehouse to Undergo Hygienic Fit-Out
We’re delighted to be working with an existing customer on a new project within the food industry this month. A successful regional construction contractor local to the site in Somerset, Stancold are collaborating together to complete the internal production fit-out as the end user becomes the sole supplier of potatoes to a major UK supermarket.
In undertaking this contract, client demands have requested the dated potato-sorting warehouse to be brought up-to-date, where Stancold’s installation team will complete the internal fit-out of white food-safe panelling.
To provide flexibility in being able to meet the end user’s needs and budget during the quotation stage, Stancold completed a cost comparison on materials to find the best solution. It was then agreed that the entire building would be installed with white hygienic sheets, fixed internally onto the frame of the warehouse as opposed to insulated panels. This would achieve the aesthetically-pleasing finish requested by the end user’s client and also takes into account the budgetary considerations of the project.
Alongside this, the team will be supplying and installing 100mm Eurobond Firemaster panels to construct an individual workshop on site, where non-combustibility of the facility was a key requirement for the end user.
We’re very pleased to have been working with local businesses on this project and are looking forward to continuing to do so further down the line as the site expands its capabilities further.
If you’d like to discuss the internal fit-out of your food & drink facility and arrange a site survey, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us on 0117 316 7000 or send us an enquiry here.
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.
As a result of rapid expansion, Stancold moves into a new 2600 m² building conveniently located just off the M4 motorway in Avonmouth. 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.
From father to son
Mervyn Gillham retires at a young age to a warm country with a cold beer. His son, Kevin Gillham, takes over as Managing Director and remains to this day.
Gilcrest Group is established with a separate manufacturing division to provide specialist composite panels to the broader market whilst supporting Stancold's continued development.
Stronger team and offering
Stancold strengthens its team and offering to the market by introducing innovative uses of coldstore panels for other applications such as firewalls. Throughout the recession, Stancold remained profitable and retains all the key personnel who make the business what it is. A core of staff at this time have been in the same business for 20 years.
Stancold remains strong, completing many projects across an ever broadening spectrum of industries with an enviable reputation for offering outstanding customer service. We are devoted to giving you great value and total support which will enable us to be proud of your project and worthy of your next one!
