Project Florence – Fonterra Wastewater Treatment Plant

When Fonterra was building its new milk powder plant in the Waikato, Fulton Hogan was brought in to construct a $20 million wastewater treatment plant.

The project involved construction of a wastewater treatment plant, treatment ponds, a clarifier, pump station and storage pond.

The plant’s cheesemaking operation was continuing while construction was underway so the project team had to consider impacts of work, including dust mitigation, on the site.

At the height of the project 1000 people were on site so it was important to our team that everyone communicated and shared information regularly to ensure safety and efficiency. The team used the “Last Planner” tool to help prioritise and decide how different on-site trades would interact. Regular meetings were also held to identify risks and mitigation.

Upon completion, commissioning of the wastewater treatment plant was carried out with input from Fonterra staff, providing on-the-job training prior to handover.
