If our people are our DNA than our projects are what defines us. The end result of all the hard work, approach and application of our expertise. With fast-paced growth in the commercial sector, we’re proud of the growing list of projects with Form’s name on them.

The Brief

Whakatōhea Mussels Ōpōtiki Ltd engaged Form in an ECI arrangement to collaborate with the early stages of design for a state-of-the-art mussel processing factory in Ōpōtiki. Mussels are currently being farmed in the open waters and transported to Tauranga for processing. The new processing factory will help the Whakatōhea Māori Trust Board achieve their long-term vision of "Ko te kai hoki i Waiaua" - "To be “the food bowl that feed’s the world”

The Build

The works consist of two large processing factoy buildings with a drive-through canopy between them. There are a number of sections or functions across the factories, including areas for chillers, packing, tray-loading, storage, waste, staff amenities and loading. 

A separate office is located adjacent to the factory and will house staff and visitors. The open-plan office contains a lunch room, meeting rooms and a commercial kitchen. 

The Outcomes

Form has an established presence in Ōpōtiki through our involovement with local Kiwifruit developments. We have worked closely with our client, offering flexibility and expertise to the project. Where possible, we have engaged local subcontractors and suppliers, thereby supporting the community's economy.

“It is an unusual situation for a client to work alongside a contractor, however, our team have managed to cohesively progress through all of the usual project challenges. By engaging Form during the pre-construction stage we have been able to minimise project issues and tap into each other’s experience. Form were most helpful throughout the design phase and have carried that through to the day-to-day activities”
