Stancold’s food projects team have commenced work on the final phase of a three-stage contract for an award-winning ingredients supplier in Wales.
As part of the redevelopment of the site, Stancold have been working alongside the project’s appointed contractor since 2020 to complete a new-build extension, an internal freezer build and now the fit-out of the main production area.
Once fully operational, this area will see fresh vegetables diced, sliced and separated before being packaged and moved through to the adjoining loading bay.
Stancold’s responsibility as part of this third phase of works involves the supply and installation of 1700m² of Kingspan’s Quadcore panel system to segregate the space for a vegetable production area, a high-risk room and a low-risk washroom. Office areas and airlocks also sit within the team’s scope of works. Where the panels encompass a white food-safe finish, this will complement the rest of the Stancold-built fit-out across other areas of the site.
The height of this area was revised during the design stage to accommodate existing electrical and fire suppression services in the roof of the building, negating the need to strip everything out and ultimately, compromise the end user’s production programme and our construction schedule.
Timings have been important throughout all major works on this site, so here, our installation team will complete one area at a time to allow the client’s equipment to be moved in and begin operating straight away. Therefore, all panel cutting is to be completed outside to ensure there is minimal mess within the working space.
We’re looking forward to seeing this site in its newly renovated state, where Stancold have been responsible for 90% of the internal fit-out.
