Our new extension to the Twinings factory at Andover is now handed over on site.
The extension houses three new tea blending drums and associated weighing, vacuum transfer and loading facilities, and was built by Mitie with plant installed by Azo.
It involved cutting a 19 x 9m hole in the existing factory structure and building a new 3-storey high “box” with mezzanine floor. The opportunity was taken to introduce more daylight into the factory with windows on the west elevation.
Designing the scheme in Revit allowed co-ordinated building and plant drawings to be prepared, avoiding clashes and allowing for plant to be safely installed from ground level.
We’re now progressing with further Production and Administration projects at the factory.
