2 1500m2 main office area at australia post chullora taylor construction industrial 2

The sizable site also houses a generous main office area with various amenities spanning 1,500m2 and a new two-lane B-Double interlinking driveway. This heavy-duty pavement road connects to an existing Australia Post facility adjacent to the development and facilitates convenient and smooth transport between the neighbouring structures.

A prominent and highly unique feature of the building is the super awning which spans 140 metres in length and 30 metres width. The largest of its kind in Australia, this superstructure comprises two 70 metre arched trusses, providing a clear column to column span of 70 metres. The huge shelter enables for loading throughout the year, resulting in greater productivity rates and overall efficiency.

Additional scope of works included several ancillary offices such as a Dock Office Control Room, Tech Office, Warehouse Office and 7,341m2 of external heavy-duty concrete pavements, 2-off inground stormwater onsite detention tanks and a fire pump room, sprinkler tank and rainwater tank. The facility also contains a carpark built over 2,836m2 of light-duty pavement, which accommodates parking for up to 80 vehicles and includes an under-croft carpark.

Taylor prioritised and fast-tracked the design and construction and coordinated a staged handover, ultimately enabling Australia Post to occupy their tenancy in November 2018, before the peak Christmas season.
