Lincoln & York Ltd
Founded in 1994, Lincoln & York Ltd specialise in providing a coffee sourcing, roasting and packing services to the out-of-home, retail and foodservice market in the UK, Europe and worldwide. Over a six-year period Harrison have completed a series of build projects to accommodate the company’s ongoing expansion.
After outgrowing various premises on the Elsham Wold Industrial Estate, Lincoln & York Ltd initially required a purpose-built factory and office. Harrison completed the facility in 2008 and in 2011 we extended the office area with the addition of a second floor. In 2012 we completed a lean-to extension on the new warehouse to aid with the storage and loading of finished products. In 2013/14 Harrison oversaw the construction of a new warehouse extension and the external refurbishment of an existing building on the site, which now also includes additional office space.View the embedded image gallery online at:
AKP required Harrison to develop a state-of-the-art storage and grading plant to complement facilities which process and distribute potatoes in the UK and overseas. In 2011 we built a 3,200-square metre chilled potato store incorporating five individual stores capable of holding 8,000 tonnes of potatoes. The project was built over a very short time scale to ensure its readiness for the potato harvest in September, without compromising on the quality of the build.
Harrison also constructed a new 4,000-square feet, two-storey office building to accommodate AKP’s continued expansion. The premises included a boardroom, fully furnished kitchen, large open-plan offices and several individual office areas. The building was finished to a high standard, incorporating many unique features specified by the client, including an American Walnut staircase with stainless steel handrails.
Richard Arundel, Managing Director at AKP, said: “AKP have worked with Harrison on previous developments, including projects undertaken on behalf of many of our grower clients, and we know that they provide consistent quality and reliability.”View the embedded image gallery online at:
Locate Supplies Ltd
Founded in 1988, Locate Supplies Ltd is a family-run business servicing a variety of industries, from engineering to food, supplying a vast range of metal and plastics cut to size. The company’s expansion required larger headquarters which Harrison completed in 2008.
Darryl Pidd, Operations Director of Locate Supplies, said: “Harrison found the land and produced a series of drawings for a contemporary design. They were fantastic all through the process, right up to completion – nothing was too much trouble and all the staff, from site workers to technical support, were friendly and helpful. The finish and build quality are extremely high and the energy-efficiency is as good as it gets – on the official rating scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the highest, their standard was even better than 1.”
Following the success of this scheme, Harrison have commenced a new project in 2014 with the construction of an additional purpose-built unit to encompass Locate Supplies’ latest waterjet cutting technology centre.View the embedded image gallery online at:
