Construction is under way on a $4 million office and
warehouse development for CHEP New Zealand in Dunedin.
CHEP, which provides pallet, container and crate pooling
services, will move into the Sturdee St premises in late
November, relocating from Strathallan St.
An extensive search of property options was undertaken by
Chep's Sydney-based property consultants before the decision
was made to partner with Port Otago's property subsidiary
Chalmers Properties Ltd, Chalmers general manager David
The property comprised 200sq m of office, 1152sq m of
warehouse and a 384sq m canopy on a 4658sq m site, while the
new pallet and container centre would process 640,000 pallets
Chalmers has subdivided the 7570sq m site, with the remaining
land on its own title for future development.
CHEP was keen to be located in the industrial precinct in an
area where it could operate 24-hours a day, while Chalmers
was pleased to ''kick off'' a significant brownfield
redevelopment, Mr Chafer said.
The site was previously occupied by Transfield Services and
the buildings were demolished to enable the redevelopment.
It was hoped other building owners in the area would look to
redevelop their sites with new industrial developments to
benefit the city's economy, he said.
Chalmers is relocating Ray White from Filleul St to a 400sq m
ground floor tenancy of its office building in Wharf St in
February next year, after an internal upgrade.
The company awarded Cook Brothers Construction the job of
building new 400sq m retail premises in Auckland, to be
leased to an Anytime Fitness Gym franchise on a 10-year lease
The tenancy would be the first of three planned building
additions to Chalmers' $20 million bulk retail property in
Ronwood Ave, Manukau.
Work was expected to be completed by the end of February next
