Boral's new batching plant facility and offices in Gleadow St has opened, paving the way for demolition of the old Lindsay St plant. Boral Tasmania General Manager Gary Chapman said Boral was excited to see the new purpose-built plant up and running.
"It's fantastic to be opening a contemporary, purpose-built batching plant here in Launceston because it is going to allow us to continue to provide high quality construction products into the Northern region, and indeed, across the State," Mr Chapman said.
The City of Launceston compulsorily acquired the old Lindsay Street site in 2008 as part of the $60m flood levee reconstruction project.
Decrolux worked closely with Pitt& Sherry for the lighting design across the whole plant.
