Project Objective:

To convert an existing open plan warehouse into a full specification sandwich production facility. To design the area requirements in terms of space and flow, and to then appoint the design team and then contractors to complete the project.

The whole of the internal factory construction utilised a non-flammable panel to try to eliminate the risk of fire damage to meet with the requirements of the clients' insurers.

The client purchased 2 new production lines including bread slicing, buttering, filling equipment and packing lines. Foodesco coordinated the supply and services requirements and then supervised the delivery and installation along with the clients engineering team.

Scope of Project:

The complete design of all areas of the factory to meet with the output requirements needed by the client. Working with the management we provided layouts and detailed designs for all aspects of the project including walls floors and services. Planning and local authority requirements were dealt with and a complete set of tender documents and design details produced.

As part of our Project Management services we advised on the choice of contract to be used. We then arranged and organised the tendering process. Once the works on site had commenced Foodesco acted as contract administrators and Supervising Officers to ensure that all aspects of the contract ran smoothly.


The timing of the project was critical. The new facility needed to be completed within 12 weeks to ensure that the factory was operational to meet with several new contracts the company had secured.

The main assembly and packing areas were supported by the necessary decant and preparation areas.

Other parts of the building were converted to create the necessary chilled, frozen and ambient storage facilities, whilst staff and office requirements were provided for from a new mezzanine structure designed and constructed as part of the project.

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 budget was critical, and the final accounts were agreed with no increase from the original cost plan indicated by Foodesco.

Processing Equipment

Foodesco also assisted the client in the purchase of all the required processing equipment and when the building was ready co-ordinated the delivery, installation and commissioning of that equipment.
