Kershaw Continues Longstanding Relationship with Waitrose

December 03 2013

Kershaw Mechanical Services has recently completed the mechanical services installation to the upgrade of Waitrose’s Cambridge shop in Trumpington as part of the shop’s multi-million pound extension and refurbishment.  The company was the ideal candidate for the job, having carried out the mechanical services installation on the original Waitrose, Trumpington store when it was built in 2001, and later when it was refurbished in 2005.

With an extended footprint of approximately 1,800m2, the store now has a new, larger café and customer toilets; new serving bars for fish, meat and cheese; and a new delicatessen and bakery.  Kershaw carried out mechanical works in all of these areas including upgrades to the vacuum drainage system for the chilled counters; the chilled water system for the fridges; and the store’s air supply system, and a new cold isle retrieval system.  A team of 20 was on site at Trumpington for the duration of the 10 week programme, which included a night working rota so that the store could remain open to customers whilst the upgrade was carried out.

Ian Greenstock, Kershaw Mechanical Services’ Sales Director, said “Kershaw’s have a long history with Waitrose going back over 20 years so we are delighted to have been able to bring our knowledge of the Trumpington store, and our mechanical expertise, to this latest project.”

Kershaw is also currently working on the Kingston, Newbury and Brighton stores as part of Waitrose’s Store Improvement Programme.
