Dairy Crest's multi-million pound extension project is completed
16 July 2012
Work on two multi-million pound schemes by Clegg Food Projects to extend the Gloucestershire and Derbyshire factories of Dairy Crest has been completed
Clegg Food Projects, which provides building and consultancy solutions for major food operations all over the UK, has now completed an extension to Dairy Crest’s existing premises at Foston in Derbyshire at a cost of £2.1 million and a £1.4 million extension at Stonehouse in Gloucestershire. Both projects will create extra refrigerated storage space for milk.
Dairy Crest is one of the UK’s leading dairy food companies and has a range of products including Cathedral City cheese, Clover, Country Life and Frijj as well as supplying bottled milk to major retailers from both of the extended sites.
Clegg Food Projects was appointed to build the new refrigerated stores to extend the Stonehouse and Foston operations, enabling the company to boost its output so it can manage its increasing sales.
Steve Giltrap, managing director of Clegg Food Projects, said: “I’m delighted our work at the Foston site is now complete. Because of our expertise in the food factory sector, Clegg was ideally placed to carry out a contract of this size with the technical elements which needed to be carefully considered.
“Delivering refrigerated store projects such as this is a specialist area. Clegg has significant technical knowledge and expertise in this area, having worked with a number of other manufacturers on similar schemes. Because of this experience, we were able to deliver both of the projects on time and within budget.”
Clegg Food Projects has worked hard to complete the expansion at the two sites which will provide additional storage space for bottled milk to cope with business growth.
Steve added: “As a specialist of design and construction in the food and drink manufacturing and storage sector, Clegg Food Projects has continued to deliver a number of large scale food projects around the UK.”
At the Foston site, Clegg Food Projects built the original factory about ten years ago and has returned a number of times since then to complete alterations and expansion. Close cooperation was required with the Dairy Crest site team at Stonehouse and a break in the project agreed to allow the site to manage peak Christmas demand.
