Signorino Warehouse

This expansive $6M industrial development located close to the West Gate Freeway in Altona North incorporates an impressive 11,000m2 warehouse area, an 800m2 showroom with overhead gantry cranes, a loading dock, modern office space and external hardstand and car park area. The building features structural steel framing and precast concrete dado panels and is set on a beautifully landscaped 25,000m2 site.

After participating in an intensive competitive tender process, Figurehead was appointed to preferred builder status by the prominent and established developer. We then set to work rigorously cost-planning and value engineering the project plan to successfully achieve feasibility in line with the client’s construction budget and delivery specifications.

Once feasibility had been achieved, Figurehead coordinated a team of expert consultants to manage every aspect of the design process from beginning to end. We were then formally engaged under a comprehensive ‘Design & Construct’ contract for the duration of the project.

Construction commenced on site in September 2013 and, although no major issues were encountered, an existing leasing agreement between the client and tenant meant we were required to work to an extremely tight delivery schedule in order to meet the terms of the agreement.

In April 2014, just eight short months after commencing construction, Figurehead handed over the completed project to the full satisfaction of both client and tenant.

“Figurehead Industrial have been able to apply their well-honed skills as a residential builder towards the construction of industrial and commercial projects.”
