High-care construction specialist, Chalcroft, has commenced work at the HP Bulmer cider production site in Hereford, as part of a multi-million pound modernisation and capacity increase programme for parent company, HEINEKEN.

Work includes the new build of a process and packaging building, including offices and storage; an extension to the fermentation building to provide a control room and laboratory; installation of a new bottling line and process tanks, along with further refurbishment and civils works. The project is due for completion in January 2015.

product-bulmers_variants compressed for eMailMark Smith, Project Manager for HEINEKEN, said “Cider has been produced in Hereford since 1887, and HP Bulmer is now the world’s leading cider maker. Our significant £50m investment will ensure that we have the capacity and flexibility to ensure that Hereford remains at the centre of our global cider business. It is essential that production remains unaffected whilst the modernisation worktakes place and we selected Chalcroft as Principal Contractor due to their expertise of working on live sites within high-care environments and their understanding of our business”.

Chalcroft Construction Manager, Andy Hardy, added, “We are very pleased to be working at HP Bulmers and are working very closely with HEINEKEN and their professional teams to ensure the smooth and safe co-ordination of the project”.
