Food Production Facility, Heathrow

Design and construction of an 171,820sqft industrial facility.

Base build works included a Grade A, sustainable cross-dock facility with steel frame, metal clad roof and elevations, dock levellers, loading doors, curtain walling to office areas, car parking, service yard and substation.

We were successfully awarded the fit-out of the new facility during construction of the base build.

The fit-out works to the new airline catering facility incorporates several food preparation areas, chilled and frozen storage, kitchen areas and distribution areas. The facility also provides a high-quality office block with meeting rooms and staff areas.

Feature of ProjectChallenges

As part of the works, an underground waste food treatment facility was constructed adjacent to the facility. A safe and cost effective solution was used where a temporary cofferdam was built in which to position two 70,000litre grease trap tanks. The depth of the excavation meant the cofferdam was subjected to high lateral loads, requiring a robust and secure support system to retain the ground located near to the main structure. The excavation was also subject to high water table levels, which contributed to the increased loads and made for challenging on-site conditions, but was managed through implementation of a Tubeshor hybrid shoring system.
