International Seafoods 2, Grimsby

A bespoke seafood processing facility to deliver fresh quality seafood into Wm Morrison Supermarkets stores. As a result of this project Morrisons are the only food retailer sourcing fish direct from the quayside for sale across the country.

The conversion/refurbishment of this existing factory was not without its challenges and required significant specialist input from the WMS professional team.
Initially working within the constraints of the existing internal layout it quickly became apparent that significant works would be required to achieve the internal environment required for the desired state of the art facility.

The building incorporated areas of high care/hire risk processes that required significant alterations to underground drainage and staff access arrangements. To ensure the project complied with WMS programme requirements there were a series of phased handovers and subsequent complex machinery installations, all whilst further construction works progressed.

The completed project fully met the requirements of the client giving them the opportunity for the business to reduce the time from ‘Catch to Kitchen’.
