Triad Architects were commissioned by Howard Humphreys, the team leader for the Unimix project at Athi River in 2004. Unimix wished to construct a mill to produce rations for various government, UN and NGO agencies for distribution to refugees and displaced persons, in the East African region.
The project consisted of a multi-storey computerized mill to prepare and formulate a range of different rations as ordered by the individual customers, various stores and bins for raw materials, and a warehouse for the finished product. The site included a small offi ce building and site works.
The project was constructed on a green fi eld side inside the EPZ at Athi River. The value of the project was $2 million at 2008 values and amounted to 8,000 square metres of production and storage space. The project was completed against a tight programme and on budget.
Other consultants involved were Howard Humphreys and Barker and Barton.
