Kemtile, the single-source provider of hygienic flooring solutions, has confirmed that it has delivered a new turnkey project for Greggs, the leading bakery chain.

Greggs appointed Kemtile as the Principal Contractor for the project to perform a refurbishment at its plant in Enfield, North London. This involved the construction of an extension to the production area, including slabs, steel frame and cladding, prior to the floor and drainage solution.

Within just five months Kemtile had installed new structural concrete floor slabs, stainless steel kerbs and drainage along with new hygienic flooring, providing this leading retail baker with everything required as part of a “turnkey and single source” installation but most importantly a durable, hygienic slip resistant floor finish. As Principal Contractor, Kemtile provided a team approach to the management of health and safety and the client environment, fully conversant with all legislative demands within CDM 2015.

Speaking of the project, Greggs’ Chris Newman commented: “We needed a reliable contractor that could provide a single source of service. Kemtile not only completed the work within the appropriate timescale but ensured minimal disruption as the site was still in operation. We’re delighted with our experience and look forward to working with them in the future”.

Wayne Briers, Contracts Manager at Kemtile, who led the project said: “During the pandemic we recommended a testing regime for all subcontractors under our care, introducing a continual monitoring system and adhered to best practice to ensure the safety of all contracted staff and the client’s own employees who were still operating in the factory.”

Briers added: “Working collaboratively enhances understanding of skill sets and requirements of individual contractors as they move towards an end goal together, keeps them safe and improves confidence in ability across the board. This in turn delivers better results for the client, with a simplified, single source point of contact for HSEQ management and reporting. It works well.”
