The Australia Post parcel sorting project at Chullora incorporated a major extension of the existing facility to accommodate the increased volume of parcel postage resulting from the online shopping boom. The project was completed under a fast track program of 28 weeks.
The $40 million extension includes the design and construction of an additional 15,000m² warehouse space which was connected to the existing operational facility.
The warehouse is a steel structure with low height pre-cast concrete walls, full height insulated wall panels with and an insulated panel roof. The warehouse floor is a mesh and fibre combination slab with a high-quality burnished finish. Building services include air-conditioning to the entire warehouse space with all major plant installed on platforms underneath the roof. ADCO’s team also managed the integration of the specialist sortation equipment contract.
