Isleport Foods Factory Extension, Somerset
RPS provided Architectural and Civil Engineering designs for an extension to an existing dessert production facility to meet increasing demand
An additional 2,800m2 of production, welfare and despatch space was created through the extension to this facility. A number of key factors had to be taken into account based on the various production areas inside including multi-temperature environment ranges and different , rigorous operational hygiene regimes.
Internally, food-safe finished insulated walls and ceilings were fitted that used a variety of core materials depending on location, area function and fire risk. Floor finishes are a combination of polyurethane resin and granolithic concrete running into either polyurethane coves or stainless steel kerbs.
Throughout the extension project, the facility remained fully operational.
