Ahrens has a comprehensive understanding of what ingredients are involved in offering seamless integration of functionality and design on every project they complete, combined with competitive pricing. This makes Ahrens the perfect choice when it comes to construction solutions in the heart of the Barossa, and this project was no exception.

Ahrens, a national full service construction, engineering, mining services and rural infrastructure company, are the most vertically integrated construction company in Australia, which allows them to reduce costs and improve efficiencies for their clients. The fifth generation family business offers clients a one-stop shop to take their project from concept to completion, which was key to the successful delivery of this venture.

Ahrens provided the full turnkey project for Maggie Beer Products, from design right through to construction and hand-over. The scope of works included civil works, footings and concrete works, steel fabrication and erection, cladding, all service works, freezer works as well as external car parking and landscaping.

Working with the client from the design stage allowed Ahrens to gain a better understanding of the client’s needs and how to best provide a solution that complemented their existing facilities. This led to Ahrens providing an underfloor freezer design which became a key feature of the project. Ahrens chose a simple air system using PVC pipe with a flow and return line, engineered by building engineer Triaxial, to increase efficiency for the client and provide cost savings in the long run.

Adding to an impressive portfolio of work for leading brands such as Hentley Farm, Coopers and Vinpac, Ahrens are a trusted provider of wine infrastructure solutions, having completed projects of all sizes from cask halls and winery buildings to breweries, visitor centres, barrel stores, sheds, fit-outs and extensions.

Having completed previous work for the client in Nuriootpa, Maggie Beer Products were aware of Ahrens’ strong portfolio of works and high quality of finish which made Ahrens the number one choice for their new build.

Ahrens use their significant pool of in-house capabilities for labour, trades, plant and equipment to provide high quality environments based on expansive design and construction experience, committed to providing every client with cutting edge project solutions.

Ahrens’ collaborative, hands-on approach to delivering high quality, value-for-money results continues to see clients return to them time and time again, further affirming Ahrens’ reputation as a leading provider of food and beverage infrastructure solutions across Australia.
