Australia Post Parcel Post, Chullora & Ardeer

Australia Post Parcel Post, Chullora & Ardeer

Construction is complete on two Australia Post Parcel Post facilities, with a combined value of $50 million, at Ardeer in Melbourne and Chullora in New South Wales.

Both projects have been designed and documented by Architectus to improve distribution efficiency through a more convenient location to transport networks, and set a consistent identity and standard for these buildings and future facilities.

The complex briefing required innovative design and infrastructure solutions in order to maximise the internal clearances, accommodate the range of the company's transport vehicles and avoid vehicular contact with pedestrian paths.

Both facilities incorporate automated parcel handling systems which sort by destination and size. Architectus liaised closely with both equipment designers and the client to ensure that production flows met current and anticipated demand. Visually, both facilities are part of Australia Post's branding approach.
