Previous to the reconstruction in 2006, Oakey Abattoir had operated from this site for many years and they had used both Sureshield and Surecote 500 on their floors. Beca in Melbourne were appointed the design engineers in 2005 and specifications were written around the Nuplex products Fibreclene for the walls and Surecote 500 for the floors.

The construction work was awarded to McNab Constructions in 2006 and Bethell Flooring were appointed the applicator of the coatings. Bethell Flooring have a long history of successful flooring installations using Surecote 500 in the red meat industry and this would have added weight to their subcontract tender. In total 4000 m2 of flooring and Fibreclene were applied in the new boning room, kill floor and adjacent areas.
