About the Project

ALDI distribution centre reaches practical completion

ALDI's massive new distribution centre at Brendale in Brisbane's north reached practical completion last month. Designed by PDT and delivered by Cockram Construction, with APP as Project Managers, the project incorporates the design and construction of a 50,000m² warehouse and office, ambient warehouse and coolhouse facilities, along with associated civil and landscaping works.

The distribution centre is registered for a Green Star - Industrial Design v1 rating and is targeting a 4 star Green Star rating.  Sustainable initiatives and design principles planned for the development include; 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.
