The convenience of the M7 right at your front door made the Australand Winston Hills property highly sought after for businesses needing easy access in and out.
This convenience, the large space and sustainable design practices of Australand were all considerations in the tenancy of Toshiba and Australian Geographic Retail distribution centre. Toshiba has signed up for 15 years and Australian Geographic is currently undertaking the large job of shifting to the new premises.
Winston Hills is Wallandra’s first in a recent trilogy of projects with Australand. Wallandra was able to provide Australand a competitive package, and having worked together previously, had the track record to deliver accurately under tight time constraints. The 13,000 m2 floorspace included 300 tonnes of structural steel, supplied by Wallandra. For more information on this project

Anyone who has driven the Northern Distributor around Orange NSW will no doubt have seen the highly impressive transport hub of Ron Finemore. The distinctive building and immaculate red fleet is difficult to miss in this bustling industrial centre.
Built in 2011 and located in the ideal position to service NSW regionally and interstate, Wallandra was the local fabricator trusted to deliver the structural steel.
The site location was subject to plunging winter temperature and the occasional snow however the snow loading wasn’t factored in to the design. Working closely with Builder ArtTec building the design department of Wallandra were able to adjust the design to allow for the appropriate snow loading in the most cost effective manner for the end client.
With the updated design complete Wallandra was able to successfully supply and erect the 95 tonne of structural steel within 4 weeks.
Next time you’re in the Central West keep an eye out for the red fleet of Ron Finemore.
