Thanks to our excellent track record with the main contractor, Parkway MK, Stancold were selected to carry out partitioning for two new warehouses in Bury St. Edmunds last year.
As this was a new build, Stancold had to demonstrate great flexibility. Dave Rackstraw managed the project on our side and coordinated our visits while accommodating the client’s schedule.
Two stories offices were designed to include easy access loading areas and the roof while also keeping in mind future installations of staircases and lifts, hence the shape of our partitions.
The walls for both buildings were built up to FR60 specification. Stancold used a total of 1650m² of 150mm Trimo panels.
We’re happy to report our team has now completed the contract and is looking forward to new challenges. For any and all industrial partition enquiries, call Shaun Jones on 07821 152663 or email email@example.com.
Working with a construction and civil engineering specialist for an end user dedicated to aluminium packaging innovation such as drinks and aerosols, our team were recommended by one of our supply chain partners as an alternative to jumbo stud work.
The fire-rated composite walls were required to enclose new specialist tanks which meant a tight programme of works in line with its delivery. As far as the ever-changing market allowed, our team successfully completed different phases of the project, ensuring that the tanks could be installed straight from importation from overseas.
As this was the first time that the contractor had used a composite system for a fire-rated partitioning project, Stancold’s Industrial Partitions expert, Shaun Jones, worked collaboratively to ensure that the design and specification matched the requirement. It’s this approach and Shaun’s depth of knowledge that sets Stancold apart from our competition.
Installing from a concrete bund which offers protection against hazardous leakage, our team carried out a vertical panel installation and accompanying firestopping to achieve the 60-minute fire-rated specification.
The team worked hard to meet this project’s tight programme of works and we look forward to completing further projects with similar challenges throughout 2022.
To discuss your partitioning project in more detail, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Shaun on 07821 152 663 or send us an enquiry.
It’s been a few months in the making, but we’re very excited to say that Stancold’s industrial partitions brochure is now finished. It will allow our customers to quickly understand how this system can benefit them.
Our industrial Partitions aren’t just about Passive Fire Protection, we also offer acoustic, thermal and hygienic partitioning for a range of industries and applications, whatever your partitioning needs, we have a solution to meet them.
Many of the photos were taken at one of the most interesting projects we worked on in the last quarter of 2016,a large flour mill and factory where we installed one and four hour rated firewalls to form a new factory and protect existing buildings.
The flour mill project allowed us to make the most of our range of expertise and our industrial partition system, so it seemed like the right choice when it came to showcasing how every solution Stancold offers is installed with the end user in mind.
Stancold have been working on Industrial Partition projects for decades and can help with a range of services to ensure that you get a high quality installation that meets your business requirements. Our team of project managers and installers have a wealth of experience to ensure everything runs smoothly and you’ll even spot them in some of the photos we took for this project!
The brochure is now available for download, or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d prefer a printed copy.
If you’d rather speak directly to one of the team you can give Shaun, our business development manager, a ring on 07821 152663.
The project, due to start at the end of February will enable Purolite, a leading manufacturer of specialist resins, to expand their production. They recently purchased the building next door to their current facility in Llantrisant and it needed significant refurbishment to meet their requirements.
After a successful experience working together back in 2014, Knox and Wells contacted Stancold because of our track record in delivering technical performance driven composite panel installations in a range of industrial applications. There’s no better feedback than a returning client and we love a challenge. This project certainly delivers on that front!
There were a number of issues to overcome. Because of the weight of the proposed ceiling plans we had to offer a more lightweight option whilst still maintaining hygienic requirements. Our Senior Business Development Manager, Tom Court, also worked with them to cost engineer the project.
To ensure that Purolite’s requirements were met in an existing space Stancold provided complete 3D modelling plans for Knox and Wells. A mixture of Kingspan’s new IPN Quadcore panels along with Eurobonds Firemaster mineral fibre panel system will allow us to achieve a variety of firewall requirements: a minimum 60 minutes’ fire integrity and 30 minutes’ heat insulation.
Installation will take 12 weeks and we can’t wait to see what the final product looks like. This scheme of mixed panel types does not only meet the client’s fire, hygienic and aesthetic needs, it is designed to be suitable for installation in the mixed level refurbishment of the existing portal frame building.
David Murden, representative of Promat UK, specialists of passive fire protection and high performance insulation boards, has delivered a useful and informative CPD presentation this week at Stancold HQ in Avonmouth, Bristol.
The main objective was to provide Stancold Project Managers and estimators with an improved understanding of passive fire protection solutions, associated issues and current Fire Regulations, so that we continue offering the complete fire stopping package to the highest standards to our customers.
Latest UK Fire Statistics released by the Department of Communities and Local Government state the following:
Fire & Rescue Services in Great Britain attended 505,600 incidents in 2013-14
212,500 actual fires
9,748 non-fatal injuries
Majority of deaths caused by smoke, gas and toxic inhalation
Property loss caused by fire in 2014 was approximately £607m (15% of yearly building insurance claims).
42% fatalities occurred outside the room where the fire started. Many lives could have been saved if fire had been contained with passive fire protection.

Creation of Rowland Adams Metals Ltd, Bristol
A partnership between Mr Adams and Mr Rowland, two metalworker friends back from the war. Over the years, they became one of the first companies in England making cork filled coldroom panels that were sandwiched between timber frames and vapor repellent faces infilled with rope fibres, bitumen and caulk to create a seal.
Name change to Stancold Coldstore Construction
Where the name originated from is a combination of urban legend and myth. Some say it was the idea of an installer called Stan, some say it was a “clever use” of the concept of 'Standing in the Cold'. However we got here, we are proud of our roots!
The Gillham family steps in
Mervyn Gillham came from a different field and saw the potential within Stancold to become a leading company in this specialist marketplace. In 1997, his son Kevin Gillham joins the team.
Stancold acquires Mercury Coldrooms
Stancold becomes one with the well reputed local coldstore business, Mercury Coldrooms, bringing a wealth of knowledge and a great team of people to the company. Today, the majority of the senior management team of Stancold and our top project managers are originally from Mercury.
As a result of rapid expansion, Stancold moves into a new 2600 m² building conveniently located just off the M4 motorway in Avonmouth. This exciting change has allowed us to consolidate all teams, knowledge and resource into one central hub, whilst being able to effectively cover the whole of the UK and beyond.
