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.
