The construction of the Parcel Post Facilities in Melbourne and Sydney involved the development of 1 brief to enable the delivery of 2 facilities to take Australia Post to world’s best practice in parcel post distribution.

The Ardeer facility consisted of an operational floor of 15,400 m2, 1,600 m2 office space and a 6,600 m2 canopy.

It was important that the 2 projects of differing scale were delivered utilising the same brief that incorporated Australia Post’s specific operational requirements. Building materials were selected to provide durability and minimal maintenance. Best practice design and careful application of materials ensured that Australia Post ESD principles were implemented.

Both projects were delivered within the same time frame and commenced operations in December 2003.

The Chullora facility was awarded the 2003 Master Builders Association (MBA) NSW Chapter ‘Award for Excellence in Construction for Industrial Buildings $10M and over’ and ‘Award for Excellence in Construction for Best Use of Concrete’.
