Strict hygiene standards

Food and beverage processing and manufacturing facilities and associated construction projects require special consideration to food hygiene and food safety standards.

Our personnel have a strong understanding of food grade standards and the specific construction and interface requirements of fully operational facilities to ensure food safety is maintained whilst providing compliant project delivery.  These food safety requirements flow right through project lifecycle including the following:

  • Maintaining strict levels of hygiene at all times
  • Design of food safe systems and associated products
  • Selection of food grade materials and products
  • Manage pest and vermin control and factor this into the design
  • Separate appropriate systems from infrastructure that comes in contact with food and beverage products
  • Construction sequencing
  • Construction separation and delineation and work flow planning

Despite our strict hygiene standards, we will work to minimise any periods shutdown for your existing facilities.

Contracting models

We are flexible with our contracting models and delivery approach. Through our strong relationships with specialist consultants and process technology suppliers we can offer complete end-to-end solutions, or we can simply provide construction only services.

  • Early Contractor Engagement (ECE)
  • Design and Construct
  • Construction Only
  • Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Management (EPCM)

Our collaborative contracting approach

Complex food and beverage construction can be uncertain in terms of the scope of work initially. We provide a collaborative contracting approach for many of our clients to ensure quality and value in all our beverage and food factory construction work.

We work to provide this value to you through a number of ways:

  • Design cost savings to avoid potentially unwanted design growth or reworks during construction
  • Program management expertise that ensures a streamlined construction process and minimises bottlenecks
  • Cost management through the integration and management of design, procurement construction
  • Open book cost reporting with transparent and real-time tracking of costs
  • Safety and environmental management with a culture of zero harm
  • Elimination of rework by integrating  design, engineering, procurement, programming and execution with constructability at the core to minimise future changes
  • Resource management through pre-planning to allow for early investment and placement of personnel, plant and equipment

Project delivery

Our demonstrated track record and long-term relationships with clients such as Lion, McCain, Coca-Cola, Weston Milling, Mauri ANZ, Balfours and Schweppes, is testament to our strong project delivery.  We manage this outstanding project delivery through a number of ways, including:

  • Project Feasibility
