A new, improved and larger production facility replacing an older building is currently under construction for food ingredients and flavouring specialists Kerry Ingredients at the company’s site in Boraston Way, Burford, Tenbury Wells.
Main Contractors for the project are GP Thomas and Son Ltd.
The new building, which measures 32 metres wide and 61 metres long, stands on the site of a former production facility which was demolished to make way for the development, which is due for completion at the end of November 2011.
Structured around a steel frame, the new building features external elevations in metal cladding, roller shutter doors and a metal cladding roof incorporating rooflights. External works include hard landscaping.
Currently, the construction team is working on the second phase of demolition, with the team reported to be doing an excellent job.
