Vaughan's Kaufland Distribution Centre complete

In March 2021, Vaughan Constructions announced the completion of the distribution centre for German supermarket Kaufland at Mickleham, in Melbourne’s north.

The 100,000 m2 facility includes 107,000 m2 of concrete hardstand, 168 recessed loading docks, 73,200 m2 of warehousing, office and entry building of around 4,000 m2, ancillary buildings of 3700 m2, a freezer of 10,500 m2 and social building of 1000 m2, on a 28 ha site.

The building was sold fully leased to a local transport/distribution company.

Vaughan Director Eric Law said the team had truly enjoyed working side by side with the Kaufland team to deliver Vaughan’s biggest ever project.

“Together we have achieved an amazing feat in the design and construction of a world-class facility — currently the largest in Australia — which encompasses the best of German specifications and Australian design.”

Patrick Bezner, Director Construction & Planning at Kaufland Australia, echoed Law’s comments.

“It goes without saying that we could not have achieved this without the support and hard work of the Kaufland and Vaughan Constructions teams, who have persevered and demonstrated immense commitment despite the challenges posed by COVID-19.”

Vaughan’s CV of food and drink industry builds also includes Woolworths, Aldi, Coca-Cola, Coles, PFD, Kraft, Made Group, Ferguson Plarre and Murray Goulburn.
