T&R Pastoral Company is a major lamb and beef processor in South Australia.
Wiley worked in cooperation with specialist meat processing and refrigeration equipment company Realcold Milmech on a minor expansion project at T&R’s Murray Bridge processing plant.
The project included an extension to the automatic carton chiller.
While the project was reasonably conventional in food industry construction methods, it was undertaken at a time of high activity in the local construction sector.
The project called for many trades to undertake small sections of work in a tight time frame in coordinated sequence.
All trade work was tendered to local subcontractors with Q fever inoculation. Where local subcontractors could not meet timeframe or budget constraints, the work was sourced from as far away as Brisbane.
T&R Pastoral was able to start up the plant on schedule with an expanded automatic carton chill tunnel to meet growing demand for their quality chilled product.
