Hygienic Partitioning for Pharmaceutical Distributor



Sigma Pharmaceuticals Plc is a family-owned business that was started in 1975 and has since grown into one of the largest pharmaceutical distributors in the country. It services over 3000 pharmacies and 1000 hospitals. The company is expanding and needed to build a new distribution warehouse.


The hygienic insulated panelling needed to fit in the structure of an existing warehouse. Sigma Pharmaceuticals required a clean environment and good U-value as well as a 1-hour fire-rated partition wall between the offices and the warehouse.


Working closely with Envoplan, Stancold’s project management team designed the internal warehouse to fit around the existing building, including the roof and fittings such as gutters. To prevent damage to the panels during the everyday use of the space, 2mm thick 5 bar aluminium tread-plate protection was installed to a height of 1.25 metres.
