Industry & Process
New Zealand is built on a strong heritage of farming and agriculture, with increasingly advanced production facilities underpinning our ability to supply high quality goods locally and domestically. Over the years, facilities have become highly advanced, planned and designed to the last centimetre for efficient, cost effective production. At the heart of that design and planning process are great engineers who not only understand the technical elements of design for industrial facilities, but also ‘get’ the industries they’re delivering services to. Holmes Consulting’s expert engineers have the experience and expertise required to make large and complex projects happen, drawing on a track record of dozens of successful industrial developments.
In more recent times, the growth of the wine industry has demanded some clever engineering to combine the functionality of a production facility with the form required to inspire customers visiting vineyards. Delivering wide spans and robust structures, while still creating visually compelling buildings is a challenge we love to accept – often creating entirely new systems never seen before. Stunning structures at Craggy Range Winery and Trinity Hill, for examples, showcase Holmes Consulting’s ability to balance form and function.
Projects in the industry and process space almost always proceed in the context of tight budgets and timelines. We are experts in finding opportunities to reduce use of materials, and designing ‘buildable’ solutions that help streamline and simplify construction. Whether we’re designing a high-production freezing works, or a high-end vineyard, we know what it takes to bring industrial sites to life.
