Be-plas Refurbishment of Griggs of Hythe

We recently completed a project for Griggs of Hythe (situated on the beach at Hythe) is a wholesale fishmongers who supply quality fresh, smoked and frozen fish and shellfish. Griggs asked if we could design and install hygienic cladding and a ceiling to this beautiful historical building. The owner wanted to update the building without destroying its “character”.

Anywhere food is prepared or sold, hygiene is of the utmost importance and any wall or ceiling surfaces must be tough, strong and easy to clean providing maximum hygiene protection. Wall and ceiling cladding must also conform to UK health and safety legislation.

For the Griggs refurbishment JBH used Be-plas hygienic cladding which is an excellent choice where hygiene maintenance is of the upmost importance. Be-plas is an easy to clean, low maintenance, durable hygienic cladding. It has excellent chemical resistance, is manufactured from food safe PVC and has a full range of fixing profiles. It’s also easy to drill and bond and is cost effective. It can be used in cold environments down to -10°c, ideal in places where food has to be kept cold.

You will see from the photo above that the building is clad in timber in an arch shape.

To just install a high rise ceiling would have been a shame as the building is a natural beauty and we felt it was important to keep the original features on show whilst providing a hygienic setting.

When you enter the building if you look up you can see the internal arch has been retained with a drop down hygienic ceiling that encompasses the old with the new.
We clad the walls with Be-plas hygienic PVC cladding the result of this is a clean sharp interior that will last for a very long time.

This is just one of the many projects that JBH have carried out. We relish new opportunities no matter how challenging.
