Massey University is embarking on a significant development of its facilities on Dairy 4 in Manawatu, a 220 ha 600 cow high-input dairy unit. The development is part of the University’s continuing commitment to the highest quality research, teaching and commercial dairy farming. This project also forms part of the University’s response to the rapidly changing nature of, and challenges faced by, the dairy industry e.g. the impacts of climate and environmental change, animal welfare standards, consumer preferences etc. Further, Crown Research Institute AgResearch requires access to a dairy farm in the Manawatu with appropriate on-farm facilities to enable staff undertake research. These factors have led the institutions to collaborate on what will be a shared access facility.
The project involves the construction of a new dairy shed incorporating two rotary platforms, animal handling facilities, a covered feeding pad and an effluent treatment system, to be undertaken during the period December 2019 to August 2020 (approx. 9 months). The project will ensure that the University remains at the forefront of research, education and extension in New Zealand’s dairy industry over the long-term.
The purpose of this call for Registration of Interest is to seek indications of interest from qualified contractors who wish to provide construction services for this project. The University seeks create a relationship with a contractor who has the experience and capability to undertake this project.
For this project, the University wishes to engage a contractor in a Build Only contract.
