Business targets

A site masterplan and review across a multi-purpose site encompassing a growing visitor centre & museum, production & bottling activities, national warehousing for product, POS & raw materials, all served by a railhead & road connection.

  • To enable a historically and culturally important brewing site prepare for future volume growth, including new product & packaging requirements, whilst observing building development restrictions.
  • To ensure the distribution network is fit for purpose to support this change.

Our approach

  • Current State Assessment – review of current operations including wall to wall operating processes, intra-site flow mapping, and distribution network analysis.
  • Baseline Development – Current volumes, resources and costs framed to create a Baseline. Future volumes, product & packaging mix changes forecasted for next 5+ years.
  • Opportunity Assessment – Hi level identification of opportunities to reduce logistics cost and improve service.
  • Site Development Options – Identification of options for developing the site to meet future warehousing and production capacities.
  • PMO – Structured Project Management to maintain progress and stakeholder alignment.


Our detailed report identified options for site development, changes to the wider supply chain, including:

  • Transition roadmap for change including risk assessment & cost of change.
  • Opex and Capex budgets including project payback.
  • Output to support business case & project next steps.
