Case Study Details


Client’s Requirements 

Nestle commissioned the construction of a new 33,600m2 manufacturing and production facility, including packing area and all the central plant and associated services at their plant at Tutbury.

The new coffee production facility was an expansion to the current Dolce Gusto provision. The project consisted of 6No specific production buildings including green bean and roasters, freeze dry, extraction, utilities, packing warehouse and office and workshop.

The location of the new facility was on Nestle owned green field land, and required infrastructure, site access, perimeter road and continued operation of the existing facility throughout the project period. The “civils” design team where to co-ordinate with and accommodate the Nestle specific building process design, and liaise with each building process stream lead, to provide an M&E design to Nestle standard and process requirements, which was flexible, expandable and configurable to enable  integration with the existing site M&E services installations.


Silcock Leedham’s Contribution

Silcock Leedham had to work closely with the Nestle  site team, to agree standards, scope of design, commonality across process buildings, and produce M&E detailed design to RIBA stage F, to enable Nestle to issue and procure an M&E contractor based on the detailed design tender information.

 We also had to mark test the design and supplier costs against the Nestle M&E budget, to enable the design to be developed in line with the project cost plan.


Added Value / Unique Selling Points

As part of the development of the design, Silcock Leedham undertook a number of design / pay back exercises to determine the best value against capital cost. The areas that were included in this exercise where external lighting, lamp sources, external lighting controls, internal lighting lamp sources, and internal lighting controls.
