Food Factory Design, On-time & On Budget

Scoping, Concept Design and Planning: For larger projects we will begin in the concept design and planning phase. This is typically done when it’s a ground up factory build and requires architectural drawings and applying for planning permission. We will sit down with you and your team to find out about your growth plans and further understand your business model and process. With this understanding we are able to translate your requirements into initial concept designs or architectural designs for planning. We will then take care of submitting these plans to your local council along with documentation to provide the strongest case for approval.

Detailed Design: We usually start here when a project doesn’t require planning permission for a ground up build or extension, or once planning permission has been secured. Whether your project is to build a new food factory from the ground up, fit out current space you have in your premises, or transform a new unit into a food production facility, detailed construction drawings are now required. This is crucial to ensure that every detail is taken care of and your finished factory will meet your requirements. This is a collaborative process, where our design team work alongside you over a period of 6-8 weeks to bring your vision to life. At the end of this phase, you will be presented with a full set of detailed construction drawings alongside a comprehensive scope of works and fixed proposal for the build and fit-out phases. This detailed design pack is yours to share if you wish to get alternative quotes.

Factory Build and Fit Out: If you are confident in our turnkey approach and happy with the design, we can then proceed with the building and fitting out of your new food factory according to the detailed design. This enables you to completely step back from the project, allowing you to focus on running and growing your business, knowing it’s in safe hands. We will take care of:

  • Groundworks
  • Steel Frame Fabrication and Erection
  • External Cladding and Rainwater Goods
  • Hygienic Walling, Flooring and Drainage
  • Civils and Drainage
  • Resin Flooring
  • White Wall Panelling
  • Refrigeration
  • Cold Room Installation
  • Fit Out of Auxiliary Areas, such as staff welfare facilities and offices.

Our aim is always to make your project, stress-free and cost-effective, so we have a clear process that ensures your 100% satisfaction.
