In 2015, UPC Group completed a design build facility for Waikato Milking Systems comprising of 9,000m² premises housing their global headquarters and sole New Zealand manufacturing plant. Hamilton based Downey construction built the state-of-the-art facility to enable the company to consolidate a number of sites throughout Hamilton under one roof.
Our staff were excited to move into a purpose-built facility and we quickly adapted to having four business units on the one site for the first time; it changed the way we operate and we’ve become more efficient. The easy access to the motorway is great for visitors, freight is no problem and we can be in the CBD quicker than when we were in Te Rapa.
Throughout the project, Northgate provided a good standard of service, met timelines and were proactive and supportive with any changes.
