Culina Group is one of the largest food and drink logistics operators in the UK. To enable them to future proof their operations they looked to a new purpose built ambient facility at Port Salford.
Armstrong Priestley secured this project for the ‘Base Build’ element of works through the principle contractor and long term clients Buckingham Group with the ‘Fit Out’ order being placed directly from Culina Group.
Armstrong Priestley has now completed the project, which was delivered on time and within budget to ensure no disruption to Culina Group’s operations post handover date.
The project was to install high hazard sprinklers designed in accordance with BS EN 12845 to a new build ambient distribution facility. We undertook sprinkler protection to the roof, offices, canopies and product racking in addition to the water supplies required to feed this system. Below is a brief rundown of the project:
Number of Installations: 4 No – Roof Installations, 4 No – In Rack Installations, 2 No – In Rack Installations (for future use)
