This large scale development at Stapylton comprises a 19 hectare site which was developed into a regional distribution centre for an international limited brand discount supermarket retailer. The centre includes over 60,000m² of warehouse and cold handling floor, 2500m² of office space, 3500m² of workshop and 4 hectares of trafficable pavement.
Robert Bird Group’s civil division played a key role in this development including bulk earthworks, stormwater drainage, sewer and pavement works were designed with particular importance placed on the client’s vision of having a very long term use of the distribution centre.
Significant and interesting aspects of the project and Robert Bird Group’s role include the following:
- Bulk earthworks, stormwater drainage and sewer design.
- Major roadworks – the design of a concrete road to stand the stresses of heavy vehicles.
- Considerable services coordination for the entire site.
- Developing pavement documentation to minimise shrinkage and cracking due to poor service point locations.
Total Area: Approx 190,00m2
