Keeping up with the demand for some of the world’s most loved drinks is crucial for Nestlé – especially when they needed an expanded factory, fast.
When Nestlé’s existing designer wasn’t able to continue with the redevelopment of their Sri Muda factory in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, we quickly stepped in.
Nestlé’s factory needed to have its production capacity of ready-to-drink (RTD) products expanded, as well as allow for the introduction of Milo and Nescafé products in PET bottles. The design solution needed to be fast-tracked and also cost-effective.
Responding to Nestlé’s need for speedy results, we delivered an operational PET blow moulding and RTD filling plant within a year. Our alternative design delivered a range of improvements to the original plan to save Nestlé time and money.
These improvements included removing the need for piling, reducing two existing storage buildings from a three-span to one-span structure, and simpler footings.
We also undertook the industrial services work – essential infrastructure to the safe, hygienic functioning of the factory. The complex piping system includes 15 different services, over 400 equipment connection points, and approximately 10km of pipe.
Now, Nestlé is boosting their production, and volumes are exceeding expectations.

Our Team Says
The ability to provide immediate value engineering, even late in the construction programme, enabled Nestlé to make decisions that considered time and cost implications, site impacts and future utilisation. Supported by our teams in New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia, Project Bintang was a truly global effort.
