CSM as a principle contractor were looking to install a new Yum-Yum production line at Bromborough. Other contractors were required to work concurrently on the site, however, all worked within the confines of a Trustland build. As construction lead, we were involved in enabling works, foundations, drainage, new flooring, structural steel platforms and construction of the new offices.
Challenges and Solutions
There was an immediate challenge in that we were working in a functioning food factory and our presence alone could have potentially jeopardised Yum Yum’s strict hygiene standards. On top of this, we also had to deal with unexpected obstructions in the ground, when we encountered rock at a fairly shallow level whilst excavating for drainage. Due to the tight scheduling of multiple-contractors, delays were not an option.
Wherever possible, disruptive work was carried out at weekends when the factory was quieter. We then reduced hygiene concerns by constructing floor to ceiling, fully enclosed food hygiene screens, with self-contained extraction units to minimise dust. These screens were fitted with airtight locks to avoid contamination between construction and factory production. Additional safety benefits were gained by introducing unmanned RC excavators and breakers, allowing us to distance the operators from noise, vibration and dust at the work face. To overcome any delay from the unexpected obstructions, larger machines, more men and longer hours were required.
Despite the unexpected ground discovery, this meant we were still able to complete on time and within the budget restraints set out by CSM.
“CSM has been a valued client for over 30 years and it was very rewarding to help them realise a new production line to further expand their product range.”
