Fonterra Dry Store Hub

Address: Te Rapa, Hamilton
Client: Haydn & Rollett

Fonterra commissioned the project, one of the larger coldstore buildings built in the country, to be constructed at their existing Dry Store Hub. The development consisted of a purpose-built 20,500 square metre coldstore hub and associated plant/engine rooms.

One of the main concerns for Fonterra was the longevity of the flooring and its ability to withstand the low temperatures required for dairy storage.

Plumbcraft approached the main contractors, Hayden and Rollett Construction, early in the design process and offered them a ‘Design and Build’ solution. They [who? this is not clear] worked together with FusionHVAC to install Fonterra’s first REHAU Hydronic Underfloor Heating System.


What made this project stand apart from your run-of-the-mill project was the ability of Plumbcraft, together with REHAU, to provide substantial value by supplying a very detailed design while offering considerable backing and support at each point in the construction chain. For this project, Plumbcraft installed 28,000 meters of 20mm UFH Pink pipe and 240 meters 63mm DUO Rauthermex in-ground heating mains.
