10,000m² Production & Storage Facility For Food-To-Go Manufacturer, London
Due to continued business growth, this food-to-go manufacturer needed to expand their production facility.
For this complex scheme, we had to consider the different temperatures for chillers, freezers and packing facilities along with fire-rated areas. The plan included a range of facilities; ingredient chillers, product preparation rooms, temperature-controlled packing areas, low-temperature storage and marshalling areas, alongside the installation of 58 doors.
To suit the requirements of each room, a range of different panel thicknesses were used across the project, including a 175mm firewall. Due to its large-scale nature, a project re-design was required during installation to include adaptations to work around steel walkways in the ceiling. The complexity of this project really displayed the team’s technical capabilities.

Completing the Internal Hygienic Fit-Out for National Food Manufacturer
As a specialist installer of food-safe panel systems, we have the privilege of working with both construction contractors and end-users directly on projects of varying sizes. Having been in the industry for over 70 years, we’ve built strong relationships with clients and contractors alike to help them with their food-safe requirements.
One of our latest projects in this industry has introduced us to a new construction partner, with whom we have been working closely on site in Slough. Coming together following a competitive tender process, Stancold won the work to complete the internal food-safe fit-out of a large production extension for a national food manufacturer.
A fit-out that spans across two floors of the facility, Stancold are supplying and installing Mineral Fibre panels with a white food-safe finish to a total area of 4280m² – roughly 16 and a half tennis courts! Providing panels with a Mineral Fibre core was paramount to the project, where the end-user specified non-combustibility as the principal consideration within this construction. Our expertise of the different types of materials on the market ensures we’re able to meet our clients’ needs every time.
From tender acceptance through to installation, Stancold’s project management team have met with both the contractor and end-user to confirm the finer details of the project and co-ordinate our work alongside other installers due on site at the same time. We have also been working consultatively with the parties to adapt our plans according to their ongoing design changes, demonstrating flexibility across the board.
While this is our first project with the contractor, we’re looking forward to working together again soon.
For more information on our food-safe panel systems and where we can fit within your refurbishment, extension or new build, get in touch with the team on 0117 316 7000.
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.
