Promoted as the “modern cathedral of brewing”, Sweco were thrilled to be offered the opportunity to work in conjunction with Guy Hollaway Architects in the complex design of a new state of the art brewery located on the doorstep of our Ashford office.
Client: Chapel Down Group plc
Service: Buildings, Infrastructure, Advisory & Planning, Building Standards
Main Contractor: Jenner (Contractors)
Architect: Guy Hollaway Architects
In an exciting combination, the brewery performs as not only a functioning brewhouse that aims to quadruple the productive harvest for the Chapel Down franchise, but also as a fully immersive customer experience where site tours and associated restaurant/bar facilities are available to sample the yields of the site.
As the development offers and compounds so many forms of commercial usage, the design process was intricate and presented a welcome challenge for our teams.
We were enlisted to produce a detailed civil, structural and building services design as well as carry out building control services, and the project saw Sweco successfully showcase the multidisciplinary service that we are renowned for.
