Moffat Manufacturing Facility
Date of Completion Under Construction: Sept 2014 | Duration 12 months | Contract Value $12.6m
Scope and Scale
A significant development on 28,500m2 greenfield site to house new 12,000m2 manufacturing facilities and 1,500m2 offices for kitchen appliance manufactures Moffat. The project will incorporate large components of structural steel, precast, post-tension floor, and PIR panel for façade and roofing (24mtr lengths). The manufacturing floor is made up of assembly, fabrication, storage, enameling, R&D, spares, spray paint booth, press shop areas and supported by extensive yard and container loading docks. The high-quality office area accommodates general management, marketing, showroom, demonstration kitchen, and large 24-hour self-catering cafeteria for 180+ staff.
HRS has a long history with Moffat being their preferred builder partner on their current (earthquake damaged ) Phillipstown site. Even before picking up a hammer HRS spent 18 months working closely with Moffat testing the “cost zone” on this project by investigating material selections, methodologies and design details.
To date HRS have achieved significant savings on site excavation through careful monitoring and optimising re-use of material to reduce in-fill costs.
Services trades (which include CNG, LPG and Weld Gas) will require significant co-ordination, careful consideration of distribution and supply routes, and effective management to ensure quality installation, testing and commission.
