Project Description

Brief Description

Aryzta operates a large-scale pastry production facility in Dunstable, UK, supplying their own end-user clients and large supermarket chains. As part of their significant business growth, a decision was taken to invest in new production line facilities. Kirby was contracted to work with Aryzta to install all associated electrical, data and mechanical services.

From an electrical perspective this involved new medium voltage (MV) infrastructure, LV supplies, lighting and general services. From a mechanical perspective our work centred on installing services to feed chilled water, steam, condensate and air services on site.

Supporting Business Continuity

The work was undertaken within a ‘live’ production environment over a 12 week period without interruption to existing operations. This was achieved through close cooperation with Aryzta personnel on site, but also with the building contractor and consultants involved.

This project required Kirby to mobilise quickly on site and adopt work-around build sequences so as to maintain production and complete all works within a very limited time frame. Kirby are always proactive in our dealings with project teams and innovative in our approach to executing work. This teamwork-based flexible work attitude suited Aryzta’s business needs and resulted in their achieving their business objective of commissioning the new production facility as planned.
