Final Contract ValueUndisclosed
Completion DateOctober 2019
Essential Projects was asked to complete the installation of bespoke steel cladding within the bakery of a new Morrisons supermarket in Oswestry.
Located on the on the edge of Oswestry, on the former site of Smithfields Livestock Market, the new Morrisons store has created over 60 new jobs for people in the local community.
Morrisons acquired 25,000 square feet of land to build the supermarket on a £4 million lease from Shropshire Council.
The new store opened its doors in October 2019 and features their “Market Street” fruit and vegetable displays, a customer café with barista bar, parking for 310 cars and an in-store bakery.
The essential solution
Essential Projects was contracted by RG Group to manufacture and install bespoke steel cladding to areas of the bakery.
In order to meet food hygiene requirements, stainless steel was chosen as the best material from which to fabricate the cladding due to its anti-corrosive properties and its ability to be easily cleaned and sterilised.
After an initial site survey, Essential Projects proposed the installation of 2mm thick stain polished 304 stainless steel cladding to all sides of the bakery. High temperature silicone was also used to seal corner joints.
In addition, Essential Projects also manufactured and installed bespoke steel cladding to create sluices within the warehouse. Due to the complexity of the project, the sluice base had to be fully fabricated and polished on site.
Essential Projects was also asked to add in a number of glass screens to the bakery section of the Morrisons supermarket.
