Project Jewel Unilever at Burton on Trent, East Staffordshire, England.
Construction of a new warehouse facility 65000 sq. ft and refurbishment of an existing 65000 sq. ft warehouse. The works were carried out at an existing food processing plant working within a live environment. This project was one of a series of projects carried out for Unilever at their Burton on Trent facility to provide increase manufacturing capacity.
This project relates to a programme of works, which is still ongoing, and the element of the works covered by this case study is for the refurbishment and upgrade of existing office and factory facilities in a Food & Beverage environment, working in clean conditions. The factory remained live throughout the works and all activities were closely coordinated to allow Unilever to operate “business as usual” operations for the duration of the project.
Close collaboration with the Client and their team was crucial in ensuring that the project was able to be conceived and delivered successfully. We demonstrated our full understanding of the project to the Client and their team through the use of a 3D animation, showing the interactivity being working regions and setting out our intentions to manage safe working. The animation also demonstrated the build sequence and progress linked to the proposed contract programmes, and how we could maintain business as usual operation for the client. This proved helpful, not only in demonstrating our understanding, but in highlighting potential pinch points in advance for the whole team and providing transparent justification for specific project milestone identified on the proposed programme. This level of transparency continued throughout the project, with regular team meetings involving Client Teams and our team including Design and Services Managers and our specialist supply chain. These sessions and meetings were very much focussed on presenting current status, and looking ahead to remove blockers and obstacles, and to deal with live events and changes that influenced the project.
