APL Hautapu is a current project. APL approached Foster Construction to negotiate the construction of their 47,000m² manufacturing facility. Once complete the building will be almost half a kilometre long and over 100m wide. At each end of the structure are huge angled architectural prows cantilevering over the truck loading docks.
Attached to the manufacturing building are three office blocks with an overall floor area of 4,500m² including meeting rooms, conference rooms, commercial kitchens, observation decks and offices.
The facility is ‘state-of-the-art’ with the latest technologies in construction, hybrid mechanical services, electronic LED lighting, and manufacturing plant.
The onsite construction team surpassed 500 workers at the peak of the construction period.
