As a key part of an overall supply-chain rationalisation by Coles Group, DB RREEF developed a new Chilled Distribution Centre on its Industrial Estate, Truganina.
This project comprised 10,000 square metres of Freezer at -25deg C, 26,000 square metres of Chiller at 2 deg C, and 6,000 square metres of office and support facilities, as well as extensive external pavements.
Scope of services
Gallagher Jeffs represented DB RREEF as their project manager on this development and additionally, GJ has also acted on behalf of DB RREEF in the estate development, liaison between the infrastructure development, authorities and various other projects within the estate.
GJ worked closely with DB RREEF’s development team, the Design & Construct Contractor (Qanstruct) and Coles Group representatives to ensure achievement of detailed facility requirements.
Additionally, much of Coles’ fitout work including extensive racking and IT infrastructure was integrated into the development process. The project took 2 years to complete from concept design to handover to Coles.To accommodate the projected vehicle movements, some 94 recessed docks were incorporated.
