Cawingredients Soft Drinks Factory – North Yorkshire
Leeming Bar, North Yorkshire
For over a decade Bowman Riley has helped soft drinks maker Cawingredients construct one of the most technologically advanced soft drink facilities in the country.
We provided the overall master planning of the site and designed a flagship factory to produce carbonated soft drinks supplying to major UK customers. At the outset, we supported Cawingredients in identifying a suitable site (minimum 20 acres) for their new factory with excellent transport links to ensure that the company would not outgrow their premises once operations expanded. We assessed the viability of a number of potential sites before a plot alongside the A1 was identified.
We designed a 11,2000 ft2 purpose-built factory, which houses production and bottling facilities, warehousing, water treatment plant, laboratories with ancillary offices, wagon yard and car parking. This building accommodated all the Cawingredients functions together with the long-term plan of creating a series of new buildings on site to decant various functions into as the business grows.
We designed the second phase to provide an additional 12,300 ft2 industrial space and there are now further phases including the creation of a vast 40m high warehouse, new stores, new car parking and water treatment plant.
We have also assisted Cawingredients with strategic land purchases. This work has created a new site entrance for all vehicular traffic, a new car park (to facilitate ongoing expansion), a new bespoke trade effluent plant and a new phased employment site (100,000ft2). All of which has now secured planning consent. Construction work has now commenced on this latest phase of development.
