Chilled Loading Bay for Food Distributor, Dorset
As a thriving foodservice business, our client needed to increase their chilled capacity, loading capacity and marshalling areas to cope with peak demands. As Stancold had worked with Hunts in the past, we were delighted to work with them to deliver a solution.
Stancold visited site on several occasions to understand the restrictions and also developed a design, budget and build programme with our client’s on-site team. After several revisions and amendments, a final scheme was settled and budget fixed.
Kingspan KS1100 CS Quadcore wall panels enclosed the existing exposed canopy and provided valuable insulation as well as protection from the elements, which were cut to suit the variety of existing floor levels. During the summer, the heat underneath the canopy was putting an extra burden on the low-temperature coldstore. Our solution of creating a chilled loading bay not only added capacity but enabled the cold store to work more efficiently.
You did a professional job, we’re very likely to use you again
Working With Wasabi On Their State-Of-The-Art Food Production Facility
Installing Kingspan’s IPN-QuadCore panels at a new food processing factory in London
This month, Stancold will start work on Wasabi’s new food factory on the outskirts of London. An impressive 10,600 m² of panels will create a brand new facility for the growing food to go brand.
Wasabi are one of the UK’s most popular Japanese fast food outlets, with over 40 stores in the UK. They serve a range of hot and cold dishes, with a focus on sushi and bento. The first branch was opened in London in 2003 and the chain has continued to grow since then.
Because of this increase they are moving their production to a state of the art facility in North London. Stancold will install Kingspan’s IPN-QuadCore panels.
Kingspan’s IPN-QuadCore panels have been described as the “most significant insulated panel technology breakthrough in a decade” that comes with a 40-year structural guarantee.
The game-changing core is the only one of its kind to be approved to FM 4882 for smoke sensitive occupancy. Kingspan have also continued to prove their dedication to green building: he insulated panel core improves thermal performance by up to 20%, which can significantly reduce energy consumption. The core is also 100% recyclable.
The scheme consists of raw ingredient chillers, spice rooms, several product preparation rooms, dry goods and spice rooms, temperature controlled packing areas, finished good storage, low-temperature storage and marshalling areas.
The improved Fire-rating of the Quadcore panel has meant we will be able to further utilise these panels for the cooking rooms where building control have requested a one-hour integrity zone for walls and ceilings.
The flexibility of the panel system will be further demonstrated as we are also forming changing areas, managers offices and drivers restrooms.
With work starting at the end of November, we will be on site for 13 weeks. We are thrilled that Wasabi have trusted us to manufacture, deliver and install the panels for their biggest factory expansion to date.
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 insulated 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.
Demonstrating resilience amidst Brexit
uncertainty and a worldwide pandemic, Stancold preserves its strong financial status
and diversifies our offering further. Where we saw an increase in demand from clients
for more technically challenging projects, including cleanroom envelopes and
humidity-controlled facilities, a specialist team was formed within the business.
Stancold formally launches its dedicated Clean Room
Envelope Specialist Team, to reflect our current unique position within the
marketplace. The team continues to deliver envelope solutions of increased
complexity for more demanding applications, such as containment laboratories,
battery manufacturing facilities and nuclear establishments.
