Ostick + Williams was appointed to act as local architects and planning consultants working in partnership with the Athens based Coca-Cola HBC project team for the design of a Single All-Ireland Production Site (SIPS) and HQ facility.
A full Environmental impact assessment was undertaken in a 3 month period and planning permission for the green field site on the edge of Lisburn City, including the abandonment of a public road through the site, was received in January 2006.
The project is being procured on a design+ build contract and the main contractor was appointed following a 2 stage tender process. The contract includes major ground modelling works, attenuation and site water retention, river culverting and ground stabilisation measures.
The 13,000m2 production floor comprises of 8 separate production lines all closely integrated, each delivering product directly into the 18,500m2 warehouse facility supplying product to the whole of Ireland. The production floor is linked closely to the 12,000m2 specialist production support area which includes; filling clean rooms, QA Laboratories, water processing facilities, compressor rooms, steam generation boilers and a syrup manufacturing area. All have been designed in line with good manufacturing process (GMP) standards. Also included in the production support area is a standalone PET injection moulding facility providing performs for bottles directly to the blowing area which in turn provides bottles directly to filling lines on a just in time supply basis. The need for expansion has been designed into the scheme to ensure that the design has been future proofed in a growing market.
