Synlait Warehouse

Synlait Dairy’s expansion initiatives called for a building programme that included the construction of a 22,600m2 drystore, 4,000m2 environmental load-out area and a set of service buildings – all in order to augment operations at its processing facility in Canterbury.

Based on a competitive price and a growing reputation within the industry as a specialist in warehouse construction we successfully tendered the project.

Efficiency was the driving force behind the design of the main drystore with structural supports being planned around pallet stacking dimensions and speciality rapid rise doors imported from Europe to cut loading times.

During the course of the project, an accelerated schedule was adopted which cut a month and a half off of project delivery, a requirement we were able to meet by tapping into additional manpower.
