We were awarded the conceptual design on the basis of our approach and how we intended to solve the technical issues. It was crucial to maintain production while undertaking the renovation and extension which affected all areas of the operation.
As well as upgrading and extending the production area, the project included extension and reorganisation of the warehouse, replacement of the electrical system and upgrade for waste water treatment. The decision to re-use and re-furbish the existing structure rather than start from scratch saved time and avoided impact on production capabilities.
"To plan the work, we used an approach which is similar to process engineering and encompasses logistics.” explained Wybe de Jager, Technical Director, Buildings and Industry South East Asia. "As a team effort with experts in Germany and Indonesia, we worked out the flows of people, products and waste in great detail and explored all the alternatives before reaching a solution."
