Amudham Dairy Complex
The design brief mentioned the requirement of a main factory building and the administrative complex with residential accommodation for the workers and visitors.
Amudham Dairy Complex is the biggest milk plant in India in the private sector. It is the first Indian industry approved by the New Zealand Dairy Development Authority. The design brief mentioned the requirement of a main factory building and the administrative complex with residential accommodation for the workers and visitors. The time span for the construction was restricted to 11 months including the installation of plant and machinery.
The north-south orientation of the design ensures the blocks with continuous glare-free light throughout the entire day. The block ensure optimal functional efficiency, which is achieved by providing clutter-free circulation by adherence to clear cut zoning, thereby, minimising interference of different activities. All the procurements are made from the front side via the silos and dock. The same is also present at the rear side for dispatching the products. Between the rear and front docks are all the activity areas where processing and packaging are done. Cold storages are secluded with restricted access for hygiene. As per the requirement of plant machinery, the heights are varied, starting from a level of 4.5m to 27m.
