LESAGE & FILS relied on CECIA to design and build a cutting and meat maturing unit in Chemy (Nord).

The challenge in the project

LESAGE & FILS, a family business that has been successful for almost seventy years in the distribution of quality meat with its network of butcher’s and as a supplier to the catering trade, approached the teams at CECIA to come up with a design and then build a new project to match their development. These premises replacing an existing site, which no longer fulfilled the requirements of the firm, will allow it to grow its cutting and meat maturing business and ultimately to develop its processed pork business in the existing building, which will now be given over entirely to that.

Our response

The design of this project results from the close collaboration between the CECIA design teams and their client to meet all the requirements. Work was carried out with the Water Agency on the management of rainwater and waste water, and with the CARSAT, on work practices and the overall building design. This final point was given particular attention with the installation of prototypes tested by the future occupants. The building work teams at CECIA in charge of monitoring the construction of this project were kept busy for 14 months. This new building is based around a cutting area with mechanised production line, an area dedicated to maturing meat, a negative temperature cold room for storage, and a part dedicated to preparing orders. Offices with a conference room and demonstration kitchen were also part of this project.
