Fonterra: North Island Projects

Key Construction Projects Move Forward

16/04/2015 - Whareroa - Calder Stewart is pleased to announce the completion of yet another key project for our client Fonterra. This time it’s a 24,000m2 dry store to augment their Whareroa Plant operations in the heart of Taranaki. The project, from start to finish, took nine months to complete and is a testament of our team’s dedication to meeting construction deadlines. Like our previous 54,000m2 dry store project completed for Fonterra in 2012, this project pooled a team from the South Island. But this time around, they commuted across Cook Strait - all part of getting the job done.

As Joint Managing Director PETER STEWART puts it, “We as a company have been fortunate to have staff who go the extra mile, who are not hesitant about building away from home and putting in extra hours in order to successfully take on building opportunities. To this end we are appreciative of Project Manager LAURIE HAGAN, Health & Safety Officer RAY MCLELLAN, Site Manager LEE ROBSON and the rest of our construction crew who made all of this possible.”

Challenges

The project itself presented unique challenges. First and foremost, construction of the new milk powder dry store had to take place around Fonterra’s ongoing operations at Whareroa, the largest facility of its kind in the world, with a staff of a thousand. Our team worked closely with Fonterra management to keep interruptions at a minimum, and managed to move 250,000 cubic metres of an existing hill, creating an ideal building platform which would integrate seamlessly into Fonterra’s daily operations.

Practices

The project also became an opportunity to implement best practices along the way. These included the provision of a seamless roof, for which 61 metre sheets were roll-formed on-site, along with the introduction of an edge protection system on roof walkways, all part of best meeting the safety standards we have shared with Fonterra in the numerous projects we have undertaken for them. Seen as a whole, this challenging North Island project turned out well - one in which the entire Calder Stewart team may take justifiable pride.
