The roots of Winfresh are dated back to 1961. Due to their ever growing success, Winfresh required extra accommodation at their impressive Stanstead ripening facility.
MTX produced a fi tout design for an existing single storey warehouse to house 14 extra 36 pallet 3 tier ripening rooms. Works began in June 2019 with the site set up and construction of the shell walls and ceiling.
The fitout comprised of the 14no 36 pallet 3 tier ripening rooms, in addition to a new external plant compound which houses 3 new chillers. The building was installed and handed over in just 17 weeks.
As this is a live working environment with fruit being ripened all through the day and night, MTX’s main consideration was to ensure works in the neighbouring warehouse were not disrupted. In order to achieve this, the project team kept self-contained by managing site deliveries appropriately and ensuring the interface with the existing facilities were maintained and managed, which included good health & safety practice and excellent environmental management.
