Installing firewall partitioning to modify a warehouse
It’s always nice to hear that people are saying positive things about Stancold, especially when it leads someone to get in touch with our business development manager about a new project, or in this case what ended up being a series of projects.
A couple of years ago, a leading UK DIY retailer were looking to modify their warehouse and were on the hunt for a quick and efficient alternative to standard building techniques.
They heard our name mentioned because of previous work we had been doing with building companies including Travis Perkins and got in touch to find out if our industrial partitions would be suitable for their requirements.
The design team created a bespoke composite panel solution for them, which included insulation and colour matching. The panels can be installed cleanly with very little mess, something that was important given that the sites were already established.
The company adopted this system as their number one building material for stores. It started out as a way to create a separate area for goods, allowing them to close sections when required and reduce the cost of heating the space.
As the business model for the DIY retailer changed, they sold off some of their sites, which have been bought by our client and our system is being used to divide up the space so that it can be rented out. It has proved so popular that we are still working across these sites even a few years later.
For our latest project, we worked closely with William Gough, the appointed main contractor. The walls will be two-hour fire rated with fire stopping and will cover an area of 722m2. The large truss beams had to be encased with fire board to complete the installation.
Working on a series of projects like this is a real compliment. The Stancold team has done a great job of continuing to provide practical solutions and first-rate installation as well as friendly service.
