AutoNexus

Wallandra was commissioned to supply and install over 211 tonnes of structural steel for the construction of a new facility for AutoNexus. Situated in Erskine Park, NSW; the facility has a footprint of 9,597sqm and comprises of warehouse, workshop and office space.  

This project required a quick turnaround – it took merely 2 weeks from approval to steel on-site, and in order to facilitate our client’s requirement to have the main warehouse up in 3 weeks; we added an extra rigging crew to the erection.

Due for completion in the coming months, this facility will become another of many locations for Australia’s leading provider of automotive logistics and supply chain solutions.

Realta making vehicle distribution a reality

Fast Facts

Realta-Structural-Steel• Location: Wollongong, NSW
• 145 Tonnes of Structural steel
• 8000m2 steel cladding
• 1000m2 precast concrete walls
• 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.

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.
