Coolstore & Storage Building

Replacement Controlled Atmosphere Coolstore & Storage Building. Crawford Rd, Belfast, Christchurch

New Zealand Transport authority required a company that could provide a design/build solution in a very tight timeframe for a property owner that was affected by the new Christchurch Northern Motorway.

The biggest challenge was that the property owner had to have their cool store operating in time for the apple picking season.

MC Construction was engaged by NZTA through ‘The Property Group’ in 2 stages. Stage 1 was design. Stage 2 was Construction, both of these were over a 5 month period.

MC Construction successfully delivered the required outcome and had a fully C/A apple storage building operating in time combined with a storage building. Constant subcontractor management & communication was critical to this being a success. Having Conpavers at our elbow proved a huge benefit with being able to allocate the required resources at the right times.

Along with this the main power supply to the property & street had to be upgraded as a variation partway through the project, which was also completed within the original timeframes.

The steelwork, polystyrene panel installation, electrical/refrigeration work & storage building installation was managed through our subcontractor network, the rest was handled through our own direct resources.
