DSM Project Waka - Milk Powder Line

This project was to upgrade and refurbish the added value milk-powder line at DSM's processing plant in Henderson, West Auckland.

Working with WorleyParsons (now known as Worley), we provided demolition and building services over 12 weeks to create five new hygiene rooms in which infant milk formula products would be processed and packed.

How we made a difference

  • Accomplished demolition and construction work safely, cleanly and efficiently within the live environment of DSM’s Henderson food-processing plant
  • Supported the project’s overall targets by working cooperatively alongside other, separate contractors and subcontractors on a relatively small and busy work site
  • Complied comprehensively with the client’s strict health and safety requirements to achieve the desired result of zero harm incidents
  • Co-operative building team contributes

The details

Our Q Commercial Construction team demolished walls, ceilings, floors and specialist doors in the existing plant before beginning the layout reconfiguration and construction of the high-care, high-hygiene rooms. Conductive floors were among the technical features of this refurbishment, and were important to protect the plant’s people, materials and sensitive equipment from electrostatic discharges.

This work included a revised wall layout, new specialist doors and new, specialised floor finishes. Providing for new drainage points and hot and cold water feeds to repositioned hand wash basins were part of the work.

We engaged a specialist flooring subcontractor to install the conductive flooring and supervised extensive quality testing throughout its application to ensure that it would perform as specified.
