  4. Primeport Dry Store, Timaru

Primeport, Timaru



This large scale dry store for dried milk for Primeport in Timaru was undertaken by the Timaru Port Company to house 32,000 tonnes of dried milk products before export.


Measuring 70 x 350m2 the building is situated on the seashore which required an innovative foundation system to be developed to resist the large loads coming and going from the building.


The building was built to a challenging construction programme that required it to be built partially embedded in the ground before being elevated to its final height once resource consent was granted for the building's additional height.
