An existing client approached Algo to design and construct a purpose-built Fruit Packaging and Distribution Facility on their farm in Fife.
The building is sub-divided internally to assist in the day to day processes which include the Packaging, Storage and Distribution of large volumes of soft fruit.
The facility also includes modern Welfare Facilities over 2 storeys for the farm staff – Toilets, Locker Room, Canteen and Offices.
The construction of the building is a steel portal frame with composite insulated Roof & Wall Cladding externally, insulated Cold Store Wall Panels internally to form the temperature sensitive areas for Packaging & Storage, insulted electrically operated Sectional Overhead Doors and steel high-security personnel doorsets.
The Office Areas are constructed using non-loadbearing timber stud partitions, concrete separating floor, suspended grid ceilings and aluminium windows.
