Aston Manor Brewery

“We’ve never used a temporary building before, but it’s already worked out extremely well for us. Not only was it constructed quickly, it looks as good as a permanent building – in fact, I have seen plenty of permanent structures that are not of such good quality – and it is extremely cost effective”

Case Study

About this job
Following the opening of a fermenting and bottling plant in Tiverton, Devon, leading UK cider producer Aston Manor Brewery have gone from strength to strength, thanks to an increase in demand for the own-label cider the plant supplies to supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Aldi.

Last autumn, the demand nearly exceeded the plant’s ability to meet it. Having reached storage capacity, they did not have enough warehouse space to cope with an increase in production necessary to meet a rush in orders in the run-up to Christmas.

Requirement
Brewing enough cider to meet the demand wasn’t the problem – the plant had run out of room to store it prior to delivery. They asked us to provide a temporary building that would offer dry and secure warehouse space to accommodate the thousands of bottles of cider destined for the supermarket shelves over the Christmas period.

Building
We installed a 600sqm Neivalu temporary building measuring 6m tall at the eaves. Using an aluminium frame bolted onto a concrete base, it was cladded in single skin steel panels and topped with a thermo insulated roof, consisting of an inflated PVC fabric envelope.

The specification also included one personnel exit door and two sets of galvanised electric roller shutters, guttering, high bay lights and sealant at the base of the building to prevent water ingress. The design of the Neivalu was key to this order – unlike other temporary buildings, it does not have internal snow wires, which has enabled Aston Manor to maximise the amount of racking inside.

Challenges
The site and the construction were straightforward but a delay in obtaining planning permission meant that the Christmas period was fast approaching. We had to work fast to erect the building in a matter of days to ensure that Aston Manor could cope with the seasonal rush.
