The Master Builders Association has recognised Vaughan Constructions industrial sector leadership, with projects in both Victoria and New South Wales taking out the commercial building industry’s most prestigious event.
The Woolworths Meat Company Facility, Truganina and Diageo Highbay Automated Warehouse, Huntingwood were announced as the Winners for Excellence in Construction of Industrial Buildings in both states.
Woolworths temperature controlled meat production and distribution facility was the first of its kind for the retailer in Australia.
The purpose of the building was to automate the preparation of retail ready meat for the grocery giant, therefore minimising “in-store” preparation and packaging.
In another national first Vaughan Constructions partnered with Diageo to construct their 32 metre high, 5,000m2 fully automated high-bay facility.
The facility’s six-aisle, double-deep, storage system more than doubles the previous facility’s capacity. Operating as a black warehouse the Huntingwood plant has 24/7 robotic collection, with specialised automation systems ensuring no manhandling is required.
The awards solidified Vaughan Constructions reputation as Australia’s superior food, beverage and automation experts.
