Project Value




Site Area

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

The project scope comprised of 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. This also included extensive water recycling and retention systems. 

The 27,600m2 site area includes around 10,000m2 of retail space incorporating a 7,200m2 warehouse store along with 2,500m2 of outside secured space – a combination of landscape and building materials supply areas. The site also included over 17,000m2 of external car park and landscaped areas.

Roadworks also formed part of the scope, with the installation of a roundabout to the intersection of Seaford Road and McMillan Road, the widening of Seaford Road, and the construction of a new exit to Main South Road for Bunnings delivery vehicles. 

To enable all the work 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 programme. 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.

Despite the significant impact of wet weather, project completion was achieved in 34 weeks, and the Pascale Construction team successfully handed over the store to the client in August 2015.
