ALDI’s new distribution centre at Brendale was constructed as part of the Brendale Connect Industrial development precinct, on site of the former brickworks, approximated 18km from the Brisbane CBD. The new distribution centre has been designed to support ALDI retail stores in the greater Brisbane area as well as stores north of Brisbane.
Designed by PDT, APP as Project Managers and delivered by Cockram Construction, the project incorporates the design and construction of a 50,000m2 warehouse and office, warehouse and coolhouse facilities, along with the associated civil and landscaping works.
The distribution centre is registered for a Green Star – Industrial Design v1 rating and a 4-Star Green Star rating. Sustainable initiatives and design principles planned for the development included: water harvesting and recycling, energy efficiency and co-ordination within the refrigeration plant to eliminate synthetic refrigerants and the minimisation of PVC and volatile organic compounds in its construction.
