By Matt Hall | 2nd June 2021
British dairy company Dairy Partners has appointed Pentadel Project Management to design and deliver its new headquarters near Stroud in Gloucestershire.
The 7,000 m2 facility, located on a 2.1-hectare greenfield site on the corner of Brunel Way and Oldends Lane at Stroudwater Business Park in Stonehouse, is said to have been designed with Dairy Partners' future ambitions in mind.
Manufacturers of Mozzarella, string cheese and pizza cheese products, the family-owned business said it chose to work with Pentadel because of its unique approach to the design of industrial facilities.
Incorporating production, storage and logistics areas, as well as offices, a test kitchen and café, the £15m building also provides scope for expansion with usable areas set aside for future production lines and new freezer equipment.
Robert Peel, director and co-founder at Dairy Partners said: "We are delighted to be working with Pentadel on our new facility that will not only underpin the future of Dairy Partners but also help attract people to come and work with us.
"The Pentadel team really understood our vision with an intelligent design concept that will deliver engineering and energy efficiency as well as creating an inviting and dynamic place for us all to work. This will help meet global customer demand for years to come as well as demonstrate that we are committed to being a sustainable business and employer."
By taking a people, environment and community-centred approach, Pentadel said it has designed a building that will provide a healthy, happy workplace for more than 100 Dairy Partners employees in the long term.
James Kemp, managing director of Pentadel added: "It has been a fantastic opportunity to work with Dairy Partners on the design of this innovative facility that the business and its employees can be proud of in the long term.
"We are passionate about delivering projects such as this - placing people and the planet at the heart of the design process. We have worked hard to ensure that this building brings to life Dairy Partners' core belief that its business should provide not just healthy, high quality produce, but healthy, high-quality employment well into the future."
The project is currently in construction and on track to be completed in Q1 2022.
