The Panalpina Group is one of the world’s leading providers of supply chain solutions operating across 6 continents out of its 500 offices in more than 80 countries. AIAL undertook the construction of a new office warehouse for Panalpina adjacent to George Bolt Memorial Drive.
The development consists of a 3,000m² warehouse and 600m² office split across two levels. There is a 1,880m2 yard with a 350m2 cantilevered canopy. The design had to consider the future expansion of the warehouse area into the adjacent land of up to 1500m2. As the site is located in a prominent position next to the main entrance to Auckland’s international airport, the activation of this boundary was of particular importance.
Xigo were engaged as Project Manager and Engineer to the Contract for the design, procurement and construction of the development. The project involved an integrated design of the base build and tenant fit out components for both the office and warehouse. Separate design meetings were held for each client through the concept stage and then combined over the development and detailed phases.
The development was successfully completed in April 2014, on time and under budget for both the base building works and fit out works.
There was a clean health and safety record on this project.
