• 145 Tonnes of Structural steel
• 8000m2 steel cladding

• Construction continues

 

Realta Enterprises is a Wollongong based Property Development and Construction company undertaking the large project to build the new vehicle distribution centre in Kembla Grange. This will be the first destination of new cars shipped in for processing and delivery across the country.

Before the construction even started the site needed a great deal of attention.

The construction site was previously a farm in a flood affected area. In order to build up the site it required 1.6 million tonnes of coal wash. As the construction continues there is still 6000 tonnes delivered daily.

Once site preparation was complete Wallandra worked with engineer Ivo Olbrecht of OPTIMA CONSULTING ENGINEERS. The impressive project required 145 tonnes of structural steel delivered and installed.

To clad this structure 8000m2 of Trimdek made form COLORBOND steel has been installed along with 1000m2 of pre-cast walling for the office area, parts warehouse and dado panels.

Work continues! Whilst Wallandra is renowned for its expertise in the supply and erection of structural steel, this project has a more comprehensive scope with Wallandra taking this large building to lock up stage.

The structural steel went up in 3 weeks, the cladding is almost complete and the concrete team has begun pouring the 7100m2 floor. Following behind them, the door team will begin installing over 20 roller shutters and 10 PA doors.

Stay tuned to see the progress of this project.
