  • Overview

Britcon converted an existing open plan warehouse into a full specification scotch egg production facility. Working with Foodesco Limited, the design team and client subcontractors 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 forming, enrobing, frying, blast chillers and packing lines. Britcon assisted in the co-ordination of services requirements and then supervised the construction phase along with the clients engineering team.

Once the works on site had commenced Britcon assisted Foodesco 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 trials could be completed prior to full production programmes.

The main assembly and packing areas were supported by the necessary decant, preparation and areas and tray/utensil washing areas were also included. 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 an externally constructed building.
