After 3 months of operations, The Reject Shop Distribution Centre WA officially opened in September with the The Reject Shop Board Members and Directors attending.
The red ribbon was cut by a local member of Parliament. The building was delivered with high quality finishes and exceptional landscaping.
The Distribution Centre is currently at 50% capacity and with the addition of a further 50 stores into WA this space will fill quickly.
The Reject Shop had recently commenced operations in their purpose designed and built 10,000m2 distribution centre. This distribution centre complete with its admin offices, 6 receiving docks and 9 dispatch dock areas has been an important step for the Reject Shops’ future expansion into the Western Australian retail market.
i2C partnered with ATG consulting Engineers, assisted The Reject Shop through the initial brief and design preparation for the purpose of a developer expression of interest to build and lease these premises. This scope was further extended into the construction stage where i2Cacted as a project manager in a client representative capacity and undertook tasks that included construction site representation, documentation reviews, project stage reporting and provided support to The Reject Shop during the final days of construction before handover and practical completion.
From the early conceptual stage i2C was involved in designing the site specific operational and spatial requirements around the needs of The Reject Shop to ensure that the developer could then proceed with the formal design process with a satisfactory design outcome.
This design process involved various briefing sessions held with The Reject Shop key internal stake holders followed by the specification writing performed by the services and architectural by the consulting teams.
The result of the briefing was a comprehensive concept design document that included drawings, specifications and builder/ tenant scope of works.
At the handover stage The Reject Shop were immediately able to commence the operational tasks that the distribution centre was designed for accepting containers of products ready for storage and onward distribution to the Western Australian stores. The distribution warehouse will continue to increase its volume of stored products to its maximum capacity to cater for the growth of The Reject Shop in Western Australia for years to come.
