Gel Systems Ltd is a global supplier and developer of premixes, gelling agents and stabilisers for both the pet and food industries. In 2009 the company appointed Harrison to construct a new purpose-built factory with production and storage space together with office and laboratory facilities. Harrison’s work also included consultancy to find and secure the most suitable land for the client’s operational needs, followed by full design and planning services incorporating all the requirements outlined in a detailed brief.
The project included the design and installation of a balancing lagoon to allow surface water discharge into the surrounding ditches and rivers at a controlled rate. The site was surrounded with palisade fencing and an external concrete apron was laid to assist with the delivery and loading of vehicles.
