Seven months after completing a plastic pallet and container washing facility for Chep at Rochedale, Goodman has pre-committed the company to another major warehouse, at Redbank.
The 8163 square metre property (artist’s impression, top) will dub as a timber pallet repair and service centre.
Designed to be carbon neutral, it will feature a 450kW rooftop solar panel, LED and motion sensor lighting, smart metering, rainwater harvesting capabilities and electronic vehicle charging bays.
“The new facility will [also contain] an optimised layout for quicker vehicle turnaround,” the landlord said.
The deal comes a week since we reported Goodman snapped up the ABC’s former Gore Hill studio, north of Sydney, for $95 million.
Last May, meanwhile, the institution acquired the Alexandria Homemaker Centre, again in the New South Wales capital, with plans to convert it into a business park.
Redbank is nearly 30 kilometres south west of Brisbane.
Chep, Goodman partner again
Chep, a Brambles subsidiary, has signed for an initial 15-years at Goodman’s Redbank Motorway Estate (story continues below).
The property is due for completion in October.
“Our relationship with Chep is a great example of how our business is focused on the current and future needs of our customers,” Goodman chief executive officer, Jason Little, said.
“We worked with Chep and identified Redbank as a complementary site to its existing locations,” according to the executive.
Jason Collins, Goodman’s state regional Operations director, added “following on from opening our…facility in Rochedale late last year, this service centre strengthens Chep’s ongoing and significant investment in industry leading facilities in Queensland and supports Chep’s full suite of reusable platforms enabling supply chains of tomorrow”.
Redbank Motorway Estate spreads just over 130 hectares.
Other occupants include Australia Post, Bapcor, Coles, DB Schenker and Fedex.
