Woolworths Regional Distribution Centre
The Woolworths Wodonga Regional Distribution Centre was a $70m project constructed with partner John Holland in a Joint Venture. The Joint Venture was a 50 / 50 arrangement with Joss Constructions supplying 90% of the project personnel, including the Project Director, Project Manager, Site Manager and Contracts Manager.
The site is situated 20km south of Wodonga in an area known as the Logic Industrial Park. The Distribution Centre now employs approximately 300 staff and is capable of handling 1000 trucks a day both receiving goods from manufacturers and distributing stock to stores throughout northern Victoria and southern New South Wales.
The scale of the project is hard to comprehend until you stand in the 56,000 m² main building and look along its 500m length. The northern third of the main structure comprises a Temperature Controlled component with Banana Ripening Rooms, minus 28ºC freezer and 2ºC , 7ºC and 13ºC degree rooms to maintain stock at precise temperatures.
