B&E Foods, a subsidy of MelCo Foods, is expanding operations at their Blacktown site. The expansion requires doubling the size of the operations with a need to build an extension to the current facility to accommodate.
The construction will be an extension to the existing facility, utilising a porta frame and ISP cladding with offices to the front of the extension. To satisfy fire regulations, the new extension will be physically separated by a fire tunnel from the existing facility, with thoroughfares provided linking the operation.
The facility will have a large cook and preparation area with an associated packaging areas. Frozen storage will be maintained in the existing facility, with the new extension taking on the majority of food production.
As the site is a working facility, the existing WWTP is critical to the facility’s operations, the WWTP needs to be relocated and commissioned in its new location prior to any new foundation works taking place on the extension. The catch is the new location is within the new extensions’ footprint. Total proposed to build the new WWTP as a stand-alone build and tie into the new substructure once the main extension was constructed.
Although the project is a construct only, Total was instrumental throughout the tendering process in providing the client with advice and value engineering options for the project.
