Food Manufacturing Training Centre
Peterborough Regional College
Stancold secured a competitive tender to build the Food Centre of Excellence and Training Facility for Peterborough Regional College. The centre will train students in a range of skills including product development and food production.
Over 1,200m² of multi-coloured external panels to provide both the necessary fire rating and weatherproof finish as well as the internal hygienic finish for the newly built facility. Internally, the client required multiple hygienic food-safe areas, changing rooms and corridors.
We matched the external panels to the college’s colour scheme. A project of this scale needed significant delivery access, but by coordinating our plans with the schedule of the busy college campus we overcame any potential safety concerns.
We appreciate the knowledge and experience that both the Lindum Group and Stancold brought to the project to enable us to achieve our goals.
Barbara Grange, Director, Peterborough Regional College
Stancold originally constructed a chiller and office on site in Dorchester and will now be returning to expand the facilities by carrying out the installation of a freezer, chiller and processing area. Full site surveys have been conducted to discuss the different elements of the project with the client and advice has been given about the optimal location for the new facilities.
During this two-week installation, the team will use Kingspan Quadcore panelling to achieve a food-safe and hygienic finish as well as sliding access and personnel doors, that meets all of the client’s requirements. We’re looking forward to seeing the final outcome and receiving feedback from our client.
For more information on the expansion projects we have worked on, take a look at our case studies or get in touch with the team.
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!
