Goodman and its joint venture partner Brickworks have turned the first sod on a 16,870 square metre service centre facility for CHEP at Rochedale Motorway Estate.
The warehouse will allow CHEP to service customer requirements for foldable crates, plastic pallets, bins, and intermediate bulk containers from a single location.
It has been designed with environmental performance in mind, featuring a 450-kilowatt solar system, which is anticipated to generate approximately 700 megawatt hours per annum.
The property will have LED lighting in the office and warehouse, rainwater reticulation, fully integrated wastewater treatment plant, solar hot water, and movement sensor lighting.
CHEP Regional Operations Director Queensland Jason Collins said the company identified Rochedale as an ideal site due to its strategic location and excellent road connectivity for its customers and employees.
