Nissan WarehousePilbara Street, Welshpool - Completed 2000

Leading the revitalisation of an established industrial area the Nissan Parts Distribution Centre has set the tone for industrial redevelopment in Welshpool. Located just off Orrong Road the new building is perfectly positioned for access to all major transport routes.

Our client had progressively upgraded existing warehouses on the site for new tenants but the brief for Nissan was to design a signature building for this important client. The 3,456m2 warehouse floor slab is steel fibre reinforced concrete, laid perfectly flat. The steel framed structure offers a column free span of 38m with clear height of 7.5m to the underside of the portal frame. Tilt-up perimeter concrete walls (to 2.1m dado generally) provide fire ratings where necessary and a robust perimeter enclosure throughout.

 

The office building, accommodating the administrative functions of the organisation, is a separate structure addressing Pilbara Street and provides an attractive face to this large warehouse building.
