Holdsworth Foods Ltd – Food Storage Warehouse Facility

Holdsworth Foods LimitedHoldsworth Foods Limited

A project to provide Holdsworth Foods Ltd with a new food storage warehouse facility, including cold store units, located on Henry Boot Development’s Markham Vale site at Junction 29A on the M1.

Works included a 1,663m2 cold store, together with dock levellers, internal offices, toilet and shower facilities, kitchen, canteen and locker room. External works consisted of a 3,500m2 concrete service yard with designated parking for 23 vehicles, plus HGV parking and turning areas, external works and landscaping.

As design and build contractor, Henry Boot provided early engagement with the client and the companies who would occupy the completed scheme. This ensured the procurement process was seamless, with Henry Boot able to harmonise specific user requirements into the design and build process.

Through value engineering, Henry Boot was able to add value by providing high specification alternative materials such as concrete slabs, paving and fencing.

This food storage unit achieved an extremely high standard of finish, with power floated concrete floors laid to very fine tolerances, and completed with a very durable resin finish, ready for the installation of the complex cold storage plant.

“HBC have recently completed a project at Markham Vale, a new cold store facility for Holdsworth Foods Ltd, for which I undertook the role of Employer’s Agent. The contract which was completed within budget, on programme and to a good standard of quality management on HBC’s behalf by Paul Day. I found Paul to be pro-active, conscientious, efficient and effective which in no small way had a positive influence on the successful conclusion of the project.”
