Partek were approached by the client during the design phase under early contractor involvement (ECI) and were engaged to commence early works on site for this commercial warehouse development whilst the design and finishes were still being finalised.
The construction of 13 high-end commercial & industrial warehouses, with associated carparking and landscaping, commenced in January 2022 and were completed within 11 months, handing over to the client approximately 4 weeks ahead of schedule.
Working closely with the client/landlord throughout the process, Partek were able to facilitate various site inspections and walkthroughs for potential tenants of the 13 different sized warehouses during construction.
Each warehouse (ranging from 225m2 to 1,180m2) consisted of a precast and steel structure, base building services, painted external concrete walls, CFC cladding, feature fins, and double performance glazed facades, burnished concrete floors with bathrooms fitted out internally and the provision for future mezzanine levels and offices to be added. Some units included cantilevered office spaces with suspended concrete slabs and walls with aluminium glazed windows, adding more flexibility variety for the client and their potential tenants. Due to the expansive size of the site and building footprint, the roof sheets were rolled and formed on site using a specialised machine prior to craning up and installing over 7,000m2 of roofing to the main warehouse roofs and roller door canopies.
Significant earthworks, site preparation and services infrastructure over a 13,341m2 site, made way for this warehouse development along with a 112-space site carpark which was constructed entirely out of concrete pavements (approx. 4,600m2 worth) as well as perimeter pedestrian unit paving, fencing and landscaped garden beds.
This successful project came together through great teamwork and collaboration between builder, client, and lead design/engineering consultant, Tesseract.
