In partnership with National Storage, CHP will provide their expertise to deliver two separate projects with a total contract value of almost $19M.
The first of two projects, CHP has been engaged to provide development and project management services for a storage facility at Bundall with a total footprint of over 10,000m2. This four-level facility will house 617 storage pods available for short or long- term customer lease. The project commenced in March 2018 and will employ over 60 contractors.
CHP were responsible for the selection and appointment of a design consultant, overseeing design, DA processes and tendering ultimately appointing FKP Group as head contractors of the development. CHP will continue its involvement throughout the year-long project performing a superintendent role during the construction and defects phases.
The site is located on the very busy intersection of Bundall Road and Upton Street in a commercial area servicing many financial and retail services to the Gold Coast including Westpac and Jetts Fitness. The location of the site presents many challenges to contractors during construction including the coordination of deliveries off the busy main road, undertaking council required sewage works during off peak hours and managing peak traffic in and around the site throughout the day. As part of their project management responsibilities, CHP will work with contractors to ensure these challenges are appropriately handled.
Designed by Vabasis Architects, the structure will raise the level of aesthetic design normally seen with storage facility builds. The target date for completion was February 2019.
