Pet Food Manufacturing Facility

Client: Butcher's Pet Care

A new 260,000ft2 manufacturing and storage building for Butchers Pet Care, producing 5 million cans of pet food a week.

The project involved significant infrastructure diversions including mains gas and electrical services, forming a new stream and creating ½ mile of Highway standard road. This was all constructed around the existing complex of buildings where operations were preserved throughout, with the project completed within the 38 week programme.

The building contains hygienic production areas, retort cooking and cooling tunnels, automated palletising/labelling and 12m high racking storage. Our experience in the design of food production facilities was invaluable in co-ordinating specialist fit-out including carbon absorption, biological effluent treatment plant and high care/ low risk separation.
