AP’s latest project, the new Farsons’ brewhouse will be inaugurated this evening by President George Abela.
Since its formation 80 years ago, the Simonds Farsons Cisk brewery has sought to use its architecture to communicate its aspirations and corporate character. The new brewhouse seeks to provide an environment suited to the brewing of Farsons’ renowned products. The whole building acts as a container for the brewing process, housing its plant, brewing tuns and laboratories, and is wrapped in an unassuming industrial skin, a protective shell accommodating the complex programme while simultaneously assisting the environmental control of the interiors.
Construction work started in July 2010 and was completed in 24 months. The project encompasses a malt handling tower, storage for raw materials, a rain water reservoir, a quality control laboratory, and staff offices.
State-of-the-art technology and automation will improve the current brewing process leading to further improved quality, productive capabilities and cost efficiencies.
