Waiū Dairy Factory

1 Tamaoho Drive, Kawerau

For Waiū Dairy Limited Partnership


Sigma Consultants was involved in the planning, Civil and Structural engineering for the development. Sigma’s planning team applied for and secured resource consents from BOPRC for construction earthworks and stormwater discharges and long term stormwater discharges as well as the necessary land use consents under the Kawerau District Plan.

The structural team design the entire warehouse, 20m high drying tower, tank stands and washdown bay. Each part of the project required skilled design and a close working relationship with the client.

Sigma was responsible for the geotechnical design and civil design of the site. We undertook the full design of the site services, roads and carparking. We provided guidance for the siteworks and earthworks surrounding.

Completed in 2019, Waiū Dairy now makes milk protein concentrates, butter and milk powders from milk sourced from local suppliers in the region. The plant is run on power from the nearby geothermal power plants. Sigma has been engaged to design an extension to the building, so watch this space!
