Extension Size


In 2011 Livingstone Building completed the construction of a 650m2 new food processing plant doubling Tatua’s capacity to produce specialised long life cream based products and was the first phase of a major capital expansion to increase both production capacity and capability. Upon its completion Livingstone was awarded a second project to construct Tatua’s drying tower.

Livingstone Building was onsite again in 2018 to complete a design and build extension to the critical food processing area. The work featured an extension to the southern end of existing food factory which was a redline hygiene zone.

The steel structure was designed to enable future extensions, which in turn influenced the cladding and layout of the building. One elevation of the building had insulated panels and metal wall cladding, and precast panels with metal wall cladding elsewhere. Maintaining the hygiene requirements in the ceiling space became a challenge when we had to crane the HVAC system into the ceiling space, requiring a high level of coordination with the trades.
