Stancold were approached by an office fit-out company requiring assistance with the composite partitioning scope of their works for a leading confectionery & sweets manufacturer’s new facilities in Cheshire.
Following a successful tender process, we were awarded the contract to deliver an 84 metre long, 120-minute fire-rated wall and the construction of a non-fire-rated enclosure for a processing room.
Our sales & design teams consulted the client’s architects to propose a solution accommodating the existing steelworks structure. Following a site visit conducted to advise on possible up-rating on fire-rated elements already in place, Stancold settled on a vertically oriented wall made of two stacked rows of Eurobond panels.
The Stancold team liaised with the client to coordinate our visits in line with other works on site, allowing for flexible delivery of the overall project.
Having built the whitewall, our team returned to the site a month later to construct a 150 m² enclosure to contain a starch-processing plant, keeping it separate from the rest of the facility, given the flammable nature of the matter.
A great showcase of how we can help a contractor deliver their turnkey project
