Architects from Nottingham-based company Cox Freeman Ltd will be highlighting the benefits of specialist early involvement in building projects when they exhibit at Food & Drink Expo 2012.

The firm specialises in buildings for the food and drink production industry, having worked for leading names in the business, including Premier Foods, Greggs, Heinz, Dairy Crest, Sun Valley Foods and Samworth Brothers.

Having recently introduced new branding, the company will be using Expo 2012 to promote its visualisation and modelling services which allow clients to see how a building will look and helps with the decision-making process.

“As a result of our experience and expertise, Cox Freeman can help food and drink manufacturers with a range of services from site finding and designing new buildings to adding extensions to existing facilities,” said director Culver Epps.

“When companies decide to build new premises, it’s a big capital investment, and the 3-D modelling or rendering visualisation service that we offer is an excellent way of helping them to see what the project will look like when complete and how their operations fit together.

“Food and Drink Expo attracts many food industry people, and we will be on hand to give advice to any that are planning to expand or build new premises. It’s an excellent place for us to showcase our services.”

Food & Drink Expo 2012, which runs at the NEC from March 25th to 27th, is one of the UK’s biggest food and drink trade events of the year, attracting more than 550 exhibitors and thousands of visitors. It brings together all sectors of the food and drink market, including retail, foodservice, wholesale and manufacturing, as well as associated industries.

As an architectural practice specialising in the design of food production facilities, Cox Freeman, based in Stoney Street, Nottingham, aims to showcase its expertise in building food grade premises.

The firm designed the units at Southglade Food Park, Nottingham, which opened in 2005 and was the UK’s first food business park with a dedicated on-site business centre. It has also worked with many of the big food production companies across the UK.

For more than five years it has worked with Premier Foods at sites nationwide and in all sectors of the company’s business.

Cox Freeman is currently working on a multi-million project in the south west, which is the extension of an existing food production facility.

Following the recent retirement of director Chris Boffin, who has been retained as a consultant, Cox Freeman is headed by directors Culver Epps and Alan McCall, with a team including architectural technologist Allan Smithson and associate Mike Webster, who lead the visualisation and technical operations respectively.

Cox Freeman’s stand at Food & Drink Expo 2012 is M173.
