Our expert industrial partitioning team are pleased to confirm a further two contracts this month, following successful negotiations with a new client in East Anglia.
As part of the first contract, the industrial developer is undertaking the construction of a new-build, multi-level property and required a fire-rated division wall to separate the space into two units and make them available to let.
Stancold’s industrial partitions expert, Shaun Jones, was able to introduce a fire-rated composite panel system as a pre-finished solution that negates the need for additional trades. Due to the 16m height of the building, split over two levels, the wall design requires a horizontal panel installation in order to achieve the one-hour fire rating. Eurobond’s Firemaster system will be the preferred product for this, accompanied by firestopping for maximum fire integrity.
The importance of a site survey for this type of work was highlighted here as the scope changed following our visit, but flexibility to client needs and wants is always a principal element of our working to get the job right.
On the same industrial estate, we will also be working on a second contract for this client, where we will be utilising our panel-build expertise slightly differently.
Here, they will be forming an airlock to provide segregation between a warehouse and its loading facility. Where the initial specification required a level of fire protection, Shaun was able to determine that this wasn’t necessary and value-engineered an alternative solution that utilised Kingspan QuadCore. This was in line with our client’s budget and programme of works, thanks to more favourable lead times.
This consultative yet flexible approach to the two different project scopes enabled Shaun and the team to form a positive relationship with the client and planning is well underway to ensure a smooth start on site.
