Skellerup - Kirk Roberts Consulting | ArchiPro



For over 75 years Skellerup has operated from a site that had a number of isolated buildings. When earthquake damage forced a strategic relocation they used the opportunity to create a new distribution, manufacturing and administration complex that would bring everything under one roof, with better integration of services and capability to handle growth.

This project was very large, complex and comprised six key distinctive areas:

  • Office and laboratory
  • Moulding hall (including moulding plant and processing, trim and inspect, de-flash)
  • Industrial hall (rubber plant and mixing facility, rubber processing)
  • Raw materials (eg. carbon black, carbon white, etc.)
  • Engineering and amenities (internal engineering and design facilities plus amenities to support operations)
  • Distribution (warehouse and logistics)


The Skellerup building provided challenges from both a design and a detailing point of view. The sheer scale and weight of the mechanical equipment to be supported required out of the box methodology to allow for both installation of plant machinery and construction of the supporting structure.

We were also tasked to redesign the building and entire scope of works to meet the needs of our client and reduce the construction budget from the previous preliminary design carried out by other parties.
