New Dairy Factory

Yeo Valley

Background

Yeo Valley is a family-run business based in Somerset producing organic dairy products since 1960s. Our Food Projects team has worked with Yeo Valley on many occasions, establishing a great relationship between the two companies.

Process

Stancold was appointed to expand the existing dairy factory with two large 1375m² production areas, hygienic food-safe corridors and a blast chiller area, overlaid by a large 2640 m² self-supporting ceiling. The partition between the existing factory and around the perimeter needed to be a 2-hour fire-rated wall.

Solution

From the preliminary design and feasibility stages, Stancold worked closely with the client to ensure all elements of the projects were considered. The project had to be carefully managed as we ‘broke through’ the live factory at several points, all of which we managed with ease.

Stancold were able to deliver the dairy factory fit-out on schedule and to Yeo Valley’s specifications.
