Queensland Costco $23M construction completed

A 55,000 square metre large Costco has been completed four weeks ahead of schedule in Ipswich, Queensland.

Construction company ADCO delivered the $23 million Costco site in Brisbane’s western suburbs and includes a large span warehouse with internal Costco fittings, a fuel service station, car parking and landscape works. It is the fourth Costco site that ADCO has built and was reported by the company to have no defects.

More than 210 tonnes of structural steel was installed over 22 days, a week and a half ahead of schedule. Around 14,000 square metres of burnished concrete slab was also poured and finished.

The project also required the relocation and upgrade of utilities ahead of the construction.

ADCO CEO Neil Harding congratulated the project team on their early finish, despite persistent obstacles.

“The Costco Ipswich team finished superbly, with weeks to spare,” Harding said.

“In addition to the required extensive civil works before construction, a soil remediation process changed the scope of carpark construction drastically yet was still completed early — another example of ADCO’s ability to clear project obstacles quickly and effectively.”
