Allied Concrete wanted to replace or upgrade key plants in Ashburton, Christchurch, Palmerston North, Silverdale and Wellington in a four-year period.
This involved some new plants, some new locations, the integration of multiple sites and a mixture of all, depending on the situation within each town.
This project involved extensive consultation with plant and regional managers to agree on the scope and design of the plants. Each site presented its own challenges – however, by working closely with the Allied team the brief was completed.
This project, which began in April 2005, included:
- Locating and purchasing suitable sites for new plant
- Designing plant layouts with local Allied managers
- Preparing and monitoring budgets for new plants and obtaining Board approval
- Engaging consultants for planning consents and building consents
- Calling tenders from overseas for new concrete plant components
- Supervising plant erection and commissioning
- Organising acoustic monitoring to ensure compliance with resource consent conditions
- Environmental surveys, the identification of site contamination and the development of removal strategies.
Impact’s primary responsibility was to project manage the activities required to facilitate the successful construction and operation of new ready-mix concrete plants at specific sites around New Zealand. Impact’s enthusiastic and innovative project management of the multi-plant project produced a highly successful outcome.
