Rand to get new coldstore in Adelaide

Adelaide, Australia: Vaughan Constructions has been appointed by Automotive Holding Group (AHG) to deliver and lease back a new temperature-controlled warehouse in Adelaide for Rand Transport.

Construction of the Aus$30m site commenced in February and is due  to be completed by end of November. The 15,000m² frozen goods warehouse is located on Caribou Drive in Direk, which was purchased by Vaughans specifically for the Rand pre-lease.

The warehouse has 15,000m² office space, 7,500m² of chiller and annex at 4°C, 2,500m² of racked freezer area at -22 °C, smart lighting, and specialised plant and equipment to run refrigeration.

The Rand Transport project continues Vaughan’s presence in South Australia, following the 8,000sqm project for Cahill Transport completed in July 2013.

“Our broad and proven track record in the transport and logistics industry has encouraged many of our past clients to utilise our national property knowledge and reach to support their own business growth,” said Vaughan Constructions joint managing director Ken Vaughan.

Part of the Automotive Holdings Group (AHG), Rand Transport is a national refrigerated transport, cold storage and distribution services provider specialising in the transportation of temperature-controlled and frozen goods.
