ALDI’s retail store network has grown considerably over recent years to the extent that a second distribution centre was required in NSW. The new distribution facility forms the base of a new southern NSW region supporting up to 100 retail stores. A suitable site for the distribution facility was identified at Prestons (adjacent to the M7).

ALDI’s project objectives were to develop and deliver a fully functioning warehouse capable of operation 24/7 and supporting the retail stores in the southern NSW region. The facility had to maximise the logistic capacity developed on the site and achieve a balanced development and conservation solution with any required environmental offsets and flood surcharge contained wholly within the site boundaries.

GHD Woodhead provided architectural design services and other design disciplines including landscaping, façade engineering, interior design, general building acoustics and coordinating input from the multidisciplinary consultant team.
