Fonterra's Te Rapa site

We balanced the interests of both the tenant and the landlord to successfully upgrade milk testing facilities at Fonterra's Te Rapa site, under a national preferred provider contract.

Project Description

The objective of the Fonterra Milk test project was to design and build an extension for laboratory facilities on Fonterra's Te Rapa site. This allowed more testing room for Milk Test as their services expanded. We have a national preferred provider contract with Fonterra for office works, so this fell under that contract. We were involved in space allocation, service allocation, design, budgeting, and then construction management.

The complexity of delivering a construction extension in food testing areas proved interesting. Coordinating health and safety with Fonterra's onsite team worked well.
