Charles Sturt Industrial Estate is a new industrial and bulky goods estate developed by ISPT on the site of the original General Motors Holden assembly plant in Woodville, South Australia.

The project included the demolition, remediation, masterplanning and rebranding of a decaying brownfields industrial site into a modern, efficient industrial precinct. GHD Woodhead’s engagement included masterplanning, wayfindings and graphic rebranding services.

The 22 hectare industrial park incorporates new entry points, roadways, lighting, signage and underground services as well as extensive use of low-maintenance landscaped areas and a significant central park. Sustainability initiatives such as rainwater recycling and stormwater quality control through the use of ecodrains were also incorporated. The park is designed for B-Double truck access, and segregates heavy vehicles and loading areas from passenger vehicle and office access.

The buildings have a common architectural theme, colour scheme and signage. GHD Woodhead’s graphics team designed a complete brand identity, typography and colour palette in consultation with the client. With the brand identity in place, the team developed a signage and wayfinding suite that would maximise the visibility of the estate’s tenants.

Efficient, cost effective and flexible office/warehouse buildings have been designed to accommodate tenants such as:

  • Bax Global
  • Boral Timber

  • Parbury
