Distribution Hub Firewalls & Ceilings Completed

We’re pleased to report yet another completed contract from our industrial partitions team. A long-standing principal contractor, the client needed our services constructing FR-60 walls for a logistics facility.

“Clients approached us to deliver firewalls and ceilings for a future distribution hub in the Birmingham area, which seems to be in shortage of those,” says Shaun Jones, Stancold’s fire-rated partitions expert.

“As we’re moving towards net zero, the industry needs to adapt. It might seem like there are plenty of warehouses dotted around the country, but there is still a great need for more eco-friendly logistics. It forces everyone to think about not only their business’ operating capacity, but also distances between their distribution hubs and other facilities,” he continues.

Shaun first heard about the 10,000m² warehouse in late 2021, but it took a few months to finalise designs and details, given the slight delay and changes we advised for LPCB compliance and cost savings.

“With builds this size, it’s always an exercise of patience and working with our suppliers to hold favourable prices for materials, which is becoming harder every month,” he concludes.

Thanks to Shaun’s 40+ years of experience working in the construction industry, challenges like these are easily manageable. All it takes is our usual approach of always going the extra mile.
