Bunnings Warehouse

Commercial, South Australia

Process

In October 2014, Bunnings Limited awarded the Design and Construct contract to Pascale Construction to design and build in a very tight time frame the $11 million Bunnings Warehouse store in Seaford, South Australia.

The project’ scope comprised the demolition of existing buildings, the construction of a new precast concrete, structural steel and metal roof deck warehouse together with the construction of supply areas, external garden and landscaping, and new car park – with extensive water recycling and retention systems.

Road works were also part of the project’s scope, with the installation of a roundabout to the intersection of Seaford Rd and McMillan Rd, widening of Seaford Rd, and the construction of a new exit to Main South Rd for Bunnings delivery vehicles.

Resolution

To enable all the road works to occur in a seamless way Pascale Construction’s team ensured that communication was paramount in the successful implementation of the plan. One of the challenges of the project related to the fast tracked nature of the design and construction of the project.

To mitigate delays, the development approval was staged, allowing earlier stages to proceed prior to the final development approval sign off. In addition, Pascale Construction increased the resourcing on the project to meet the required design time frames. Pascale Construction provided the highest quality and most cost-effective construction services, meeting and exceeding the client’s expectations throughout the project.

The Design and Construct approach minimised risks for the client whilst reducing the delivery schedule by overlapping the design and construction phases. Consequently, project completion was achieved in 34 weeks, which included significant impact of wet weather, and Pascale Construction’s team successfully handed over the store to the client in August 2015.
