Coca-Cola Enterprises is making strong progress in transforming a disused production area at its Edmonton site in north London into a new bottle blowing and filling line.
The soft drinks giant has been working with Chalcroft Construction and project management consultancy Faithful & Gould on the £1.5m initiative. The aim is to achieve a flagship facility that combines blow moulding and filling equipment from German supplier Krone.
"The fast-track, five-month project has evolved to meet the client's needs, but a flexible and proactive approach from all parties will see the start of production equipment being installed on schedule in March ," commented Chalcroft md, Mark Reeve.
The installation includes new drainage; specialist floor tiling; suspended ceilings; electrical infrastructure; energy efficient lighting and an air-handling facility that utilises waste heat generated by an adjacent compressor system.
