TEAM Transport & Logistics is making the move to Port West Estate, signing a 10-year lease deal with Port of Brisbane for a 1.22-hectare site in the industrial estate at Lytton.

The facility will comprise a 2000-square-metre warehouse, 630sqm of awnings, 225 square metres of office space, 4430 square metres of dedicated hardstand and a 354-square-metre wash bay area.

As is now standard in all PBPL new property developments, the project will also work towards achieving a 4-star, Green Star equivalent design and will include sustainable design elements such as LED lighting, rainwater tanks, and a 100Kw solar power system.

McNab is delivering the facility; construction commenced late last year and is anticipated to be complete by mid-2021.

PBPL CEO Roy Cummins welcomed Team Transport & Logistics to the port community and said the port’s ability to identify a greenfield site and deliver a turn-key development in a matter of months was a unique advantage.

“Our in-house team of planners, property development and infrastructure experts will continue to work closely with Team Transport & Logistics throughout the design and construction phases to deliver a bespoke facility that will support their operations now, and well into the future,” Mr Cummins said.

Team Transport & Logistics director Steve Skinner said, “Team Transport & Logistics see our new port-based facility integral to the ongoing growth of the business. It will develop our infrastructure to better service our FCL and project customers. We consider the Port of Brisbane a long-term strategic partner in the delivery of our service to the industry.”

The deal was negotiated directly by the Port of Brisbane, with the facility designed by SPARC Architects.
