Services provided consisted of project management, procurement and contract administration.

The Challenges

The facility included some packaging plant, bulk storage, dispatch and enclosed truck loading dock which required to be kept operational.





The Solutions

The warehouse rebuild was phased whilst the mill continued to operate and the warehouse partially operational. The construction of the project was managed in accordance with an approved budget and program.

The Outcomes

The project was successfully completed on time and to budget. Allied Mills was able to achieve its business objectives and continue the supply of quality products to its customers.
