December 05, 2016  |   News   |    

 KDH have been successfully awarded a project to remove a failing freezer facility for an international fresh chilled food manufacturer within a live facility operational 24 hours a day , 7 days a week

The project entailed the removal and disposal of a freezer and blast freezer including all plant,insulated panelling and doors and leave remaining building with full integrity before building a new freezer facility

Remove and dispose of the existing concrete floor and insulation along with the heater mat, the works have had some detailed and challenging factors where the freezer was constructed within a steel frame. The original building structure was unsuitable to take the weight of the freezer which is to be re used to take the weight of the new freezer

The new cold store panels are to be erected to give a temperature controlled environment.  The new walls are to give a food safe finish with the ceiling to be suspended from the existing steel work frame. The build will incorporate a new heater mat system with a new insulated floor


The new power float finished concrete floor will then be laid and allowed to cure

To minimise impact to the production facility the programme of works will allow our specialist personnel to complete tasks as a team and overlap of trades supporting each other will provide efficiency on site

KDH were successfully appointed as principal contractor and managed the site from a CDM point of view



Our client appointed KDH because of the mobilisation for the project from quote to order and works starting onsite 1 week to meet the urgent requirement of the works

The client needed the new freezer up and down to temperature within ten weeks and had the confidence in KDH to deliver the project on time and on budget

We are currently 4 days ahead of schedule and are looking to improve so our client can have use of the new freezer within 8 weeks from start to completion to meet our goal of providing our clients with unbeatable quality of works, reliability and value for money
