Bidfood Hamilton Temperature Controlled Distribution Centre Cold Store

A 5000m2 New Build temperature controlled distribution centre

Bidfood’s 5000sqm Hamilton Distribution Centre expanded the company’s capacity to deliver timely orders throughout the Waikato region and beyond. The early stages of the construction project were completed during a particularly wet winter.

Indeed, a MetService meteorologist described 2017 as “the year it didn’t stop raining”. Despite this, we sequenced construction activities to expedite the programme, and the project was finished without any significant delay by February 2018.

...the selection of Q Construction followed a rigorous, competitive tender process. The awarding of successive projects to Q .... thus reflects the fact that their offer is not only compelling in financial terms, but also shows a good understanding of our requirements, and the building standards required to meet these. In my dealings with Q, I have found them to be professional at all times, with a genuine desire to deliver high quality workmanship and to meet client imposed deadlines. They have proved to be easy to work with as a client.

How we made a difference

Sequenced work to minimise construction programme delays despite work commencing only a month before one of the Waikato region’s wettest winters

Working closely with our subcontractor, we sequenced the structural steel supply and site assembly in a manner that allowed subsequent trades to establish and commence works on site earlier than the programmed dates

Co-operated and co-ordinated with separate contractors engaged by the client, including incorporating their respective works into the construction programme

The details

The new temperature controlled distribution centre included a sleek, two-storey office building integrated with a large, insulated warehouse comprising cold stores, chillers and environmental load areas (ELAs). The buildings were steel-framed structures with precast concrete panels. Profiled sheet metal cladding was used for walls and roofs, and a wide, steel awning provides permanent shelter over a delivery bays and inward goods. Expansive yard areas were formed using reinforced concrete, and all landscaping was included in our contract works.
