Having worked closely with the engineering manager at Twinings in his previous role, we were very pleased when he got in touch directly when they needed partition walling to separate their production facility and a new workshop.
A new workshop area for maintenance (7.60m x 4.84m x 3.50m high) and a series of five partition walls. The workshop area was to have two vision panels and five hinged personnel doors. A roller shutter door was installed in the partition wall leading through to the factory for ease of access.
The challenge with the installation of the workshop and the partition walls was that the team had to work around the live factory. This was no problem thanks to a dedicated project management and an experienced installer team.
“Great installation and great communication [with the project manager], nothing you could improve on!”
Hygienic Yoghurt Tank Area Installation for Local Dairy
Stancold’s work on site with a repeat customer is now complete, as the team have successfully constructed a yoghurt tank and CIP room for a local dairy.
Having worked with the dairy for over 20 years, across a number of sites in the South West, our strong relationship and dedicated product knowledge has enabled us to always advise the best-suited systems to their needs.
This project required hygienic partitioning to form a new area within the site, suitable for the housing of a yoghurt tank and CIP system. The team installed over 350m² of Kingspan Quadcore food-safe panelling of 60mm and 100mm to construct the room, fixing a personnel door and roller shutter door for access.
An important consideration across the working dairy sites is their live environment. This, alongside co-ordination of other trades and installations, requires careful planning to ensure minimal disruption while completing the project as efficiently as possible. The works were installed in two phases to allow for the large yoghurt tanks to be lifted into the newly formed areas, before our team returned to complete the ceiling area.
This was an intricate project, where working around our client’s new equipment meant a scaffold tower was needed to finish the install. It was another successful job for the Stancold team and we look forward to working on site again soon.

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.
