National Centre for Food Excellence
This contract is one Karl is most proud of. The centre was built to become the National Centre for Food Excellence built for the University of Lincoln.
The build essentially was steel frame with composite cladded panels to the envelope, but then introduced were hundred’s of meters of ceder cladding, vast amounts of curtain walling, and aluminium cladding panels on top of timber carcasses. Internally, the building was split into three food production halls, fully compliant to all regulations and a two-story office/classroom/conferencing centre. All finishes were intricate and to an extremely high standard. This tested Karl from day one to the end. A combination of value engineering and prelim savings enabled us to achieve a substantially increased margin.
