Jewel Fine Foods’ giant industrial shed at Banksmeadow in Sydney saw the recent conversion by Hutchies for a new food processing facility to deliver prepackaged meals to supermarkets throughout Australia. The company supplies to major grocery chains such as Coles and Woolworths, as well as airlines which require AQIS standards. 

The highly complex 12,000m² facility fitout includes new cool rooms, cooking areas, production lines, high and low care facility areas, upgrades to infrastructure including 2 new kiosk substations with lead in cabling and new gas main. 

The high level services, refrigeration and steam plant were hung from the roof or raised on gantries. The roof was reinforced to take the weight of the equipment, some weighing more than eight tonnes. Engineering on the project included installation of 80 x 13.5m high columns which were mechanically maneuvered and hydraulically jacked into position.

Massive industrial refrigerators and freezers are were built and kilometers of piping, including large insulated ammonia and glycol pipes, are being installed.
