pitt&sherry contracted to design cheese factory wastewater treatment plant

Engineering consultancy Pitt & Sherry has been contracted to design
the key elements of a $10 million wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) for a cheese
manufacturing factory. The WWTP is being developed as part of leading food and
beverage company Lion’s upgrade of The Heritage cheese manufacturing factory in
Burnie, Tasmania.

Lion has made a significant capital investment in upgrading the Burnie site
since 2011, with the redevelopment expected to be completed later this year.

Global wastewater specialist, ADI Systems Inc. has been commissioned to
install the new WWTP with pitt&sherry providing civil, structural and
mechanical design services to ADI Systems for the development.

pitt&sherry’s civil and structural design scope of works will include
site landscaping and design of sealed surfaces, drainage design, fire emergency
design, site perimeter containment design, and design of equipment and tank
foundations. The mechanical design scope of works includes the WWTP’s pumps and

pitt&sherry worked closely with ADI Systems by providing civil and
structural design expertise during the successful tender process for the WWTP development.
After being contracted for the civil and structural design part of the project,
pitt&sherry was subsequently awarded the mechanical design element by ADI

Andrew Buckley, National Leader – Food and Beverage at pitt&sherry expressed
the company’s confidence in delivering a positive outcome on the project by
complementing the wastewater capabilities of ADI Systems on this project with their
civil, structural and mechanical design expertise.

Mr Buckley adds that pitt&sherry intends to further develop their working
relationship with ADI Systems to open up more opportunities in the wastewater
sector in the future.

The WWTP project contract with ADI Systems adds to pitt&sherry’s
earlier involvement with The Heritage redevelopment.

services, including project definition and statutory approvals, design and
documentation of the building and mechanical services, construction management
and supervision, and contract administration.
