Temperature-Controlled Marshalling Area For Large Food Distribution Hub
Following a client recommendation, Stancold worked with commercial property specialists, ISS Property, to create a large chilled marshalling area in a food distribution hub in Coventry. With the end user recently taking over the site, they were looking to make modifications to better suit their operations.
The marshalling area allows products to be inspected and sorted after being picked from the chilled warehouse, before being loaded onto delivery vehicles. Therefore, it was important to explore different designs for the space, where Stancold’s strong technical knowledge was fully utilised to implement a solution that optimised the end user’s needs.
Stancold’s in-house installation team constructed the chilled marshalling area using 3760m² of Kingspan Quadcore panels. An intricate ceiling design was also completed to allow for the installation of a fire suppression sprinkler system. The build included the integration of the client’s existing sectional doors as well as the installation of new rapid-rise freezer and chiller doors and vision panels.
The project was completed within 6 weeks and with a quick timeframe from initial enquiry through to the project handover, Stancold’s 70 years of experience in food & drink was valuable in achieving a high-quality solution.
Great work from the team across this successful 6-week installation
Upcoming Food-Safe Freezer & Chiller Installation in Oxfordshire
Stancold are pleased to be assisting a food delivery service provider during their business relocation venture over the coming months.
An initial enquiry came from the refrigeration contractor working at the client’s new site, located in Oxfordshire, where Stancold will be supplying and installing 2354m² of hygienic food-safe panels to form a freezer and chiller.
In order to provide the most thermally efficient freezer, as per the client’s requirements, Stancold offered comparisons and calculations on panel thickness throughout the site survey and design process to ensure a completely value engineered solution.
This project will see the installation of a freezer measuring 40m x 45m x 5.5m, constructed using Kingspan Quadcore 200mm panels and finished with an insulated concrete floor. The same hygienic panels, designed specifically for food environments, will be used for an 11m x 6m chiller, creating a complete temperature-controlled solution for the storage of food produce in a currently empty warehouse.
The installation is planned to take five weeks and we’re looking forward to sharing our progress along the way.
If your business has plans for a relocation soon and there is a requirement for food-safe temperature-controlled storage, get in touch with the Stancold team to discuss your project further.
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.

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.
