Toll Group’s latest facility is their largest pallet and oversize freight depot in the world. Austral Precast supplied and installed 137 concrete panels totaling 2200 square metres for the four ancillary buildings –administration, operations centre, workshop and gatehouse – on a 13 hectare site in southeast Brisbane.

Because the concrete and steel structure of industrial buildings is a large proportion of the building cost, there is a greater need “to get the design tight and efficient to build, fabricate and deliver,” explains Aaron Hughes, the project’s lead structural engineer. “Detailing and practicality are paramount,” he adds. “You can control what you are going to get on site,” says architect Mitchell McGuire, commenting on the accuracy of the precasting process. There were no tolerance issues with the precast panels for this site. “Typically, Austral’s quality is pretty good,” says Hughes. “They would be considered the default choice for precast.”
