The DC includes 107,000m2 of concrete hardstand, 168 recessed loading docks, 73,200m2 of warehousing, a 10,500m2 freezer, a 4000m2 office and entry building, 3700m2 of ancillary buildings and a 1000m2 social building on the 28-hectare site.

Eric Law, Director at Vaughan said the team had truly enjoyed working side by side with the Kaufland team to deliver Vaughan’s biggest project ever.

“’Together we have achieved an amazing feat in the design and construction of a world-class facility – currently the largest in Australia – which encompasses the best of German specifications and Australian design,” he said.

Patrick Bezner, Director Construction and Planning at Kaufland Australia said it was their teamwork that delivered such fantastic results.
