Distribution Coolroom & Freezer

No items found.

On a partial green-fields site, Kubale Constructions began work on Fonterra’s new distribution cool room and freezer facility in Cobden. Specifically for the Western Star Butter lines, the building is constructed of structural steel, tilt slab and cool room panelling on a concrete slab.

The scope of works included the installation of all refrigeration plant and equipment including heavy transport bays and dock levellers. Works also included earthworks to raise the slab above the existing levels, roadside curbing, foot paths and basic landscaping around the building. Hydronic refrigerated lines were laid throughout the extensive slab as part of the cool room function. In total, the site measured approximately 1500m2. The timeline was very tight, and the site and surrounding areas needed to remain operational which included significant traffic management.

This project was successfully completed on time and within budget.
