Featuring our LinkPak steel and timber modular product, no fewer than sixty four 33m x 48m modules make up this substantial building which will provide laboratory space for a food processing company. The building replaces one which had previously been fire damaged, was towards the end of its lifespan and was no longer fit for purpose.
We manufactured and delivered the units from our Langley Mill factory in Nottingham in four phases – supplying 16 modules with each phase. Our installation team handled the fitting of doors, trims and fixings on site, including making sure the exterior Steni Brick cladding lined up perfectly – a challenging task on a build of this scale. The laboratory team themselves undertook all of the technical fittings such as autoclaves, incubators and extraction facilities.
We added some nice design touches such as an Oak portcullis-style entrance door as well as recessed porches and canopies to provide shelter in poor weather.
