In July 2012, a fire tore through a large part of Glendale Foodsâ€™ manufacturing site in Salford. With the damage done, they needed to rebuild their facilities back to their former glory so they could get back to normal operations as soon as possible. Time was of the essence, with works needed including a new portal structure, groundworks, refrigerated panels, and external cladding.
As an additional challenge, a Victorian culvert, owned by United Utilities, was discovered early into the projectâ€™s life. The new structure was already butting up to the adjoining Victorian building, but this surprise added a new element to proceedings.
The new structure to be butted up to the adjoining Victorian built building gave additional challenges. The Design was amended as the projects progressed due to the clientâ€™s requirements. A Victorian culvert, owned by United Utilities was discovered early on after the project commenced. Work ceased until United Utilities completed extensive repairs resulting in the need for amendments to the already tight programme.
