Europe’s largest new ‘super bakery’ extends to over 21,565 sq m including 2,000 sq m of offices. This cutting edge Bakery is capable of producing 2 million loaves and 500,000 packets of rolls per week. Extensive Ground stabilisation works and Earthworks were necessary prior to commencement of building. The traditionally constructed portal framed facility including extensive mezzanine floors, was made up of three keys areas:- Raw materials, Production and Despatch.
To accommodate one of the largest privately owned fleets of delivery vehicles almost 9 acres of the site was given over to concrete yard areas, whilst precast perimeter walls and dock levellers were utilised to reduce programme. Internally polyurethane resin floors and Isoclad panelling ensured food preparation hygiene requirements were met. Extensive car parking, vehicle washing and fuel storage facilities completed this ultra modern production facility.
