An opportunity arose to acquire a small parcel of land that would integrate to the main site and open the opportunity to consider concepts for master planning the expansion of the operation.

Numerous options were developed that needed to consider a 5 to 10 year growth plan, the feasibility of developing the site with the least amount of disruption to the day to day operation whilst delivering on storage capacity requirements, minimal uplift in labour requirements, additional goods doors, vehicle staging, car parking and ancillary yard activities.

The schemes considered incorporating automated shuttle racking for increased dense storage capacity, constructing an elevated yard to receive and despatch on different yard levels, car parking below ground and above a chill despatch chamber, part demolition and construction of a new freezer and chill facility that would be more optimally sized and located to facilitate denser storage and vehicle reticulation around the site.
