Morrisons Loading Bay Has Major Re-Furbishment

William Morrison’s Supermarket, one of the leading Supermarket chains in the UK required a major overhaul to the loading bay at their Stockport Store which involved the removal of some large heavy duty industrial gates and fencing and the fitting of a new electrically operated roller shutter door.

UK Group Company Industrial Door Engineering (IDE) are one of Morrison’s key supply chain contractors and were tasked with carrying out the necessary works.

Co-ordination with site was crucial as the operation of the store could not afford to be disrupted.

IDE technical representative Bernie Mikolawjewski co-ordinated all the works which involved the utilisation of a mobile crane to dismantle the old gates and steelwork, and the IDE site engineers who had to cut up the old gates to enable them to be removed from site, as well as the installation of the new electrically operated powder-coated roller shutter. The whole contract was completed over a 48 hour period and was performed to the satisfaction of Morrison’s senior surveyor Peter Monaghan who has praised the works that were carried out without disruption to the customer.

Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service

UK Group Company Industrial Door Engineering has recently completed the latest fire station upgrade for Cheshire Fire & Rescue Service.

This time, the site was an unmanned fire station in the village of Bollington.

The old folding shutters were causing operational difficulties and have now been replaced with two automatic overhead sectional doors that are fitted with safety beams and safety edges and they also incorporate a traffic light warning system.

The installation also included the supply and fitting of side and overhead cladding so that the complete elevation matches the doors.

Although the project was carried out over three days, IDE ensured that the site was secure at all times.
