Cold Rooms & Fit Out for Farm Shop, Butchers & Deli

Watermoor Meats, trading as Jesse Smiths Butchers, have been serving quality meat to the Gloucestershire community and beyond since 1808, from one and now five shops.

When farmer turned butcher Richard Hawes bought the business in 1956 he wanted to take things further. With his twin sons John and David sharing the running of Watermoor Meats, Richard could see the time was ripe for expansion. The recent opening of a new facility which includes farm shop, deli, café, cutting plant and distribution centre serving restaurants, farm shops and cafes across the country with quality meat, is the result of months of hard work and significant investment.

Such specialist facilities require specialists in their own field to build and advise. From cold storage and offices to food counters and café with walled terrace, Watermoor Meats have been able to realise their build vision with the input of specialists.

Working together in partnership, J&M Refrigeration and MT Cold Storage Solutions (MTCSS) are respectively engineers experienced in commercial refrigeration, specialist project management and modular cold storage rooms, panelling and doors.

Together MTCSS and J&M Refrigeration advised on and achieved complete satisfaction for the customer, taking the 10,000 square feet site from a warehouse shell to a progressive facility that includes retail and meat storage with extensive management and office capabilities all over two floors.

Seven cold rooms, two freezers, ten office and staff/storage rooms, as well as a state of the art ‘shop window’ to display the fresh meat in a nod to the butchers’ history, trade kitchen, delivery and despatch area, animal storage and preparation areas not only required 400 square metres of panelling from MTCSS, but the specification needed to meet all legal hygiene and food preparation standards as well as Watermoor Meats’ budget parameters.

Based in rural Worcestershire, MTCSS offers a range of cold room equipment, industrial doors, maintenance and spares supplies for cold rooms and cabinets. We aim to bring our customers the very best solutions to meet their needs and to work professionally and efficiently.

Our customers include farmers and growers, supermarkets, refrigeration contractors, maintenance companies and food manufacturers, including major dairies.

Richard Hawes, Jesse Smith Butchers

Our vision was to achieve a high specification site to fit the needs and profile of customers here in rural Gloucestershire. We believe that J&M and MTCSS have more than achieved that for us, for both front of house and behind the scenes.

Fittings such as Smeva counters display and store our meats to perfection, they have developed and installed a data management system for temperature control, and UV disinfecters and a heat recovery system are all in place.

At every stage Martin, Gaetan and their teams have been pro-actively helpful and demonstrated appropriate expertise for this build. Their strategic planning has resulted in a site that is future proofed to meet our plans.
