Hot Dip Galvanized Sunshades for Coca Cola from GAA
Coca-Cola Amatil Distribution Centre
This project involved the complete design, documentation and construction of a 40,000sqm warehouse, 6,000sqm of unloading bay canopy, 2000sqm truck parking canopy with 12-metre cantilever rafters, entry/exit canopy, a battery room under the warehouse roof and office. It utilises Australian steel throughout from portal frame to cladding and an innovative steel fibre reinforced concrete slab.
Sway portal frames were used at 21-metre centres with rafters spaced 10.5 metres apart. Stramit Exacta® purlins were utilised to span the 10.5-metre bays, reducing conventional purlin weight over the entire warehouse area. As the building is 200 metres wide, it normally would have required three extra purlins on either side of the ridge, but a Stramit FarLap® roof sheeting joint was chosen to eliminate that requirement by giving additional purlin length at each sheet joint.
Externally the building is predominantly covered in Colorbond® sheeting with brand colours incorporated throughout the building internally and externally. Colorbond® blades are situated next to the office windows to form a decorative façade and provide shading.
