Swift Hide Processing Facility

The new hide processing facility was constructed on a Greenfield site at the Swift complex Dinmore.

MPN structural services included:

  • Advice regarding materials and coatings for each component for the facility were selected to withstand the highly corrosive environment.
  • Hide conveyor system suspended from the roof structure throughout the facility to minimise obstructions on the facility floor.
  • A racking system designed specifically for hide storage.
  • Post tensioned slab on ground to minimise floor floor joints and reduce the long term maintenance requirements.
  • Curved roof to match the existing buildings on the site.
  • 8 reinforced concrete ‘raceways’ for the processing of the hides.
