White walling, Resin Flooring & Drainage
MEP CONSULTANCY & INSTALLATION
Clearly Drinks are a soft drink manufacturer based in the North East who specialise in sugar-free products, with brands including Perfectly Clear, Upstream and Northumbria Spring, all of which are sourced from the firm’s on-site spring.
As Clearly Drinks set themselves to become established in the sugar free market, opportunity arose to secure a state of the art automated canning line which would allow them to take control of their canning process and vastly increase output. An existing raw materials storage area was chosen to house this equipment, but as the space was currently dilapidated and in need of extensive upgrade and fit-out works, Clearly Drinks realised they needed a competent turnkey partner to support them with this.
Oakley were delighted to be chosen by the Clearly Drinks team to deliver this project, managing all aspects from design through to handover. Working hand in hand with the canning line supplier, our priority was to deliver the project on time to allow Clearly Drinks to achieve maximum return on their investment, while ensuring there was no negative impact on ongoing operations. Providing an experienced contracts manager and site manager to oversee the expansion meant that the directors of the business could step away from the project with peace of mind.
The scope of works included reinforcing the existing slab, drainage, resin flooring, PIR white walling, lighting, plumbing and HVAC. With these all part of Oakley’s core capabilities, we were confident in being able to successfully deliver this project. Areas covered included the canning hall, chiller, staff welfare facilities, a visitor entrance and changing area and goods in/despatch.
The result is a world class canning facility that will not only support Clearly Drinks’ growth into the future but is a production area they can show with pride to their clients and investors alike.
We thoroughly enjoyed delivering this project and look forward to supporting Clearly Drinks with the next one!
