Scope and Scale
A negotiated design and build solution in response to the pharmaceutical co-operative requiring new premises following 2011 Canterbury earthquake. The 3,000m2 distribution facility houses secure rooms, cools rooms and general storage. Airlock areas isolate and control contamination during loading in and out of product. A Speedwall was installed to allow separate letting of space and future growth. Because of the nature of business (pharmacy drugs) the building received a high level of external and internal security. The warehouse is supported by 900m2 of office space.
