The Owens Transport development is a 1,500m2 warehouse with a 10,000m2 industrial container ready hardstand for a national container freight handling tenant.


FDC Construction and property owners expressed their desire for a quality designed and built product that would provide a valuable asset to the property owner and tenants, long into the future. Project time frames and budget were also key factors in ensuring a successful project.


McVeigh worked closely with high level stakeholders, both the property owners and end users, throughout the project life cycle to ensure the final product met and exceeded their expectations.


Careful coordination with FDC Construction ensured that quality was maintained throughout the build, which was being closely scrutinised by the property owners.


Challenging geotechnical conditions and unpredictable inclement weather could have derailed the project timeline, however each issue was overcome through the careful management of key issues and clear communication with the client.
