Fonterra, Darfield, Canterbury
BBR Contech has recently completed a massive post-tensioning project for Fonterra – New Zealand’s biggest company and the world’s largest exporter of dairy products.
Working with main contractors Calder Stewart Industries and Ebert Construction, we installed a number of post-tensioned slabs for the new milk-processing plant at Darfield, 45 kilometres from Christchurch. The work included: drystore warehousing and load out areas, which were built in two stages (Stage 1 - 18,500m2, Stage 2 - 32,000m2)
Two packing stores (3,750m2) an external heavy-duty pavement area Stage 1 (5,562m2) and Stage 2 (14,500 m2) extension container to service a full railway siding adjacent to the latest warehouse.
The project was staged to enable the earliest use of the new plant. It’s now processing about 6.6 million litres of milk a day, producing high-quality whole-milk powder for markets such as the Middle East, Southeast Asia and China.
BBR Contech has undertaken 10 Fonterra projects comprising a mixture of warehousing and heavy-duty load-out aprons in the past six years, with a total floor area approaching 150,000m2.
