Project Profile: Drucker's Vienna Patisserie Limited

Drucker's Vienna Patisserie Limited

Project Objective:

To design and project manage a short-term replacement facility of 9,000 ft2 following a disastrous fire and complete the project in 5 weeks.

To then design, specify and project manage the construction of the fully operational

replacement factory of 35,000 ft2. To include low and high risk production facilities, staff, office and ancillary areas.

The factory unit had to meet with the requirements of Tesco, which were the clients’ main customer, and to be completed within 15 weeks

Scope of Project:

Foodesco employed the necessary consultants to create the design team. Working closely with
the clients’ management team the unit was designed to fit into an existing building next door to the temporary unit.

The unit was designed to be able to produce double the volume of the original factory on a phased basis. The design therefore allowed for additional baking cooling and decorating

equipment to be added at a later date. The primary services and the plant room allowed for the future loads.

The incoming electricity supply was upgraded to 1200 KVA with a new substation being built.

The unit was designed to include a bakery with full support and preparation areas, a high risk decorating area with its own set of support and preparation areas to produce a range of fresh cream and fruit tarts and choux pastry products. These products were then blast chilled or frozen and packed into specialised cases and distributed daily to the end customer.

Foodesco acting as project managers and contract administrators then appointed the contractors chosen for each section of the works and then controlled the whole project.

The factory was handed over to the client on 1st September and Foodesco then co-ordinated the delivery and installation of the clients equipment which had been cleaned/refurbished and held in storage following the fire.

The £1.6m project was successfully completed and approved by Tesco on time with the first products delivered later that week.
