    Client Information


    This large global company with sites all around Australia plays a significant roll in national  logistics and the freight forwarding of goods. Their highly demanded product is critical to customer requirements and presents challenges to their manufacturing processes and any significant changes that are made.

    Goal


    Large company was rationalising its portfolio of operational sites. When a lease quickly ran out on one of the smaller sites, the decision was made to move the whole production wash line to an existing larger site requiring a new building, revised drainage systems on a tight timeframe.

    Why TEG Projects


    A TEG engineer was able to seamlessly embed themselves into the companies engineering team for the duration of the project. Providing alternative building designs, costings and project management, TEG were able to work across the various stakeholders requirements in a timely manner.

    Solution


    A new design building was added to an existing site in the tight time frame, through extensive planning with architects, builders and CPA’s. Concurrently, mechanical and electrical contractors were co-ordinated to remove and relocate the wash line on the day the building was handed over. The co-ordination of stakeholders with contractors by the engineering project manager was key.

    Challenges


    The biggest challenge was the extremely tight timeframe to remove all manufacturing equipment, services and infrastructure to meet end of lease and relocate to the new site in a tight timeframe to minimise any impact of their customers.

    Results


    Coming in on time and budget, the new building design raised hygiene and operational standards to new levels. The client was delighted with the finish and the requested midstream changes were met and engineered within the timeframe.
