Wiley has signed a new contract with Sunny Queen Australia to deliver a 4,000m² greenfield egg production facility, which is expected to become the primary production hub for their ongoing expansion.
To be constructed on their Synergy Park site in Carole Park, Brisbane, the $13M Stage One plant marks the beginning of a new era of development for Sunny Queen. The project will see the consolidation of elements from two existing Sunny Queen operations - one in Carole Park and the other at Yatala.
Wiley won the contract from a select group of six tenders following a three-month re-design out of which Wiley assumed responsibility for design of the structural elements. Wiley will additionally take an active role in monitoring the design with a view to identifying further cost savings throughout the project.
Business Development Director Andrew Newby describes the plant as a 'new breed' of integrated food manufacturing, storage and distribution facility, which will produce a range of ready-to-eat egg products.
Wiley has now entered a detailed design phase that will culminate with site establishment in mid-June. Completion of Stage One construction is set for the end of February, 2014.
