Our brief from the Faccenda Food Group was to improve, extend and rationalise the existing processing and dispatch facility into a high quality HQ, the client being a major supplier of fresh poultry to supermarkets. The aim is to streamline the production process incorporating all the operations of an adjacent facility under one roof. The build is significant: 100,000ft2 of new factory, 12,000ft2 of associated offices, 16,000ft2 of improved staff worker welfare facilities and new dispatch volume warehouse with sealed dock loading bays and full HGV loading yards.
M&E plant requirements are significant in order to create the chilled working environment for the food processing facilities, resulting in a very high level of insulation to the building fabric.
Completion is phased_main build by mid-2014 and refurbishment of the existing live facilities by autumn 2014.
