I would recommend FPC very strongly. Any issues were worked through very quickly, and it was a great experience from beginning to completion. Their ability and desire to work collaboratively, and their expertise in this scale of building and design, ensures the very best outcome for both businesses.

The challenge

Fonterra, New Zealand’s largest dairy cooperative, was looking to install a brand-new dehumidification system at their Waitoa site. After going through a tendering process, FPC won the contract, and quickly got to work on the fast-turnaround project.

The solution

From planning to execution, FPC was on-the-ground and on-site making sure everything ran like clockwork. The project was already running to a tight schedule, when COVID-19 sent the country into level 4 lockdown – just 8 weeks out from the final deadline. The FPC team spent weeks meticulously planning an approach. When a slimmed-down team was finally allowed back on-site, they worked like a well-oiled machine. FPC delivered the project on time and on budget, despite the major level 4 delays.

The value: Our proactive team of problem-solvers

A global pandemic wasn’t the only challenge this project faced. Unexpected groundworks issues cropped up early on in the piece. The site also had to be kept immaculately clean, so that the existing plant next door could continue to operate interruption-free. Whenever a challenge arose, we worked quickly to overcome it, and delivered to the highest possible standard.
