Lion Distribution Farm

This project involved the extension of an existing milk distribution center in Molendinar to increase their operational capacity. 

The extensions were to a single storey warehouse building, with slab on ground floor and block work walls. Construction was completed while operation was on-going which introduced additional complexities.

Michael Bale & Associates undertook all structural design for Cockram Constructions.

The project involved the transformation of an existing 64,700m2 distribution facility from dual tenancy to five isolated tenancy compartments operated by Charter Hall. The works consisted of introducing structural intertenancy walls, new loading dock facilities, large span awning structures, an additional 70 car parking bays with two new vehicle crossovers to Bannister road and 1860m2 of new hardstand pavement for container lay down.

The project presented many challenges as operation of the facility was on-going during the construction phase resulting in additional temporary works and construction sequencing.
