On Thursday 18 February, Vaughan Constructions celebrated alongside our customers, Woolworths and LOGOS Group, at the official ground-breaking ceremony for the new $184m Heathwood Distribution Centre.
The 42,000m² temperature-controlled facility will enable fresher, faster and more efficient deliveries of frozen and long-life chilled products to around 260 stores across Queensland and northern New South Wales.
At full capacity, more than two million cartons a week will move through the Heathwood facility. It will be co-located with Woolworths’ meat supplier Hilton Meats’ production facility, helping take up to 390 truck movements off Brisbane roads each week.
The Heathwood Distribution Centre is also targeting a Five Star Green Star rating from the Green Building Council of Australia, with a major solar panel system on the roof and charge points for electric trucks.
The project will create around 200 Queensland jobs throughout construction and sustaining around 300 jobs after.
Our team is excited to be partnering with Woolworths and LOGOS Group once again to deliver another exceptional industrial facility.
