In autumn 2012 Norisol was awarded the façade contract for Danish Crown’s new large and top modern cattle slaughterhouse in Holsted in southern Jutland, Denmark. We started the work in December and the order will occupy our seven panel fitters most of 2013.
Our contract includes all panel façades and all internal panel partition walls and ceilings, at total of approximately 25,000 square metres. In addition to this we have 6,000 square metres service ceilings which are to be suitable for loads of 3KN per square metre.
We use a telescopic handler to draw the outer panels in place and carry out the fastening from boom lifts. The largest panels are 6 metres long and 200 millimeters thick so it must not be very windy when we install them.
The internal panels we lift in place using our truck with a vacuum yoke which easily handles the large panels. Inside we do the fastening from scissor lifts.
Our fitters also carry out all cutting out for windows and doors making everything ready for the window contractor.
- The winter weather has been a bit tricky but we work hard to keep the time schedule, says Christian Jonstrup who is our project manager on the large job. - It is an exiting building project which we are proud to be part of.
||Danish Crown’s new cattle slaughterhouse in Holsted will create approximately 300 new jobs.|
It will be a top modern slaughterhouse making optimum use of all resources. The slaughtering capacity will be up to 4500 cattle a week.
Århus Arkitekterne are the architects and the projecting is by Rambøll. It is the largest ever single investment in the cattle sector, and the total investment by Danish Crown will come to about 67 million Euros.
The slaughterhouse is scheduled to be completed at the beginning of 2014.
