Warehouse/Office Distribution Centre – Millaroo
Location: Millaroo Drive Helensvale, Gold Coast
On the outset of this project, the client conducted an investigation into a total of 9 industrial/commercial builders, inspecting completed buildings of each builder to determine who could produce the best quality building for them. Other aspects were also taken into consideration such as communication skills and attentiveness to requests. Out of the 9 builders , 2 were selected including J and B Projects to tender on the project. As a result J and B projects were awarded the contract. The client made himself very clear as to the expectations they required for this job. Brad took on the role of site supervisor as he does for most of his projects to ensure that everything was done to a first class standard most importantly following closely the structural detail from the structural engineer to ensure an excellent standard of structural integrity.
The building is a total of 2700 m2 including a 50m x 50m warehouse area, 2 loading dock bays, a large mezzanine floor area and 2 levels of office space with staff lunch area incorporating 2 amenity areas. The main warehouse area roof consists of structural steel trusses that span 50 metres, providing a clear work space of 50m x 50m with no supporting columns. The structural engineering for the ground slabs was very involved incorporating “Danley ” armour joints in 6m x 6m bays. This has provided a warehouse floor that will stand up too any punishment from those very hard wheeled folk lifts that tend to destruct any standard slab joint, eliminating any future rectification which can result in lost production for the tenant or owner.
During the construction period , we encountered the wettest period the gold coast has seen for at least a few decades providing us with a huge challenge to maintain our construction schedule and quality. The client is a long time Gold coast local and was very understanding of this situation we were facing. As the client’s glowing testimonial stated, J and B projects delivered the project on time and to a very high standard of quality and finish.
Our thanks go to the client for his understanding and also to all of our subcontractors who have completed a high quality standard project with us.
