Warehouse Update: August 2021.

Our local suppliers and construction partners (See the full list below) have been working diligently to complete the earthwork and foundation stage. We successfully levelled out the ground, and scoped out the floor space, considering plumbing and power supply.

Some of the cement foundations started getting laid down early this month. It sounds counterintuitive, but the floor won’t go in until after the walls and roof are up. Next we’ll be getting a crane in to start erecting the outer shell, reinforced by a heavy metal skeleton.

We’ve placed cameras to catch the whole thing. Check out the latest time lapse of footage sewn together this month. Stay tuned for September!

 

About ShapeCUT’s Warehouse Expansion.

Our brand-new warehouse expansion at Carole Park is in its early building stages. What looks like dirt and rubble now is rapidly transforming into a warehouse spanning some 5,000 m² of floor space, complete with office building and BBQ facilities. We’re currently on track to open by the end of 2021.

The new warehouse space will sit adjacent to ShapeCUT’s current facility, and will be dedicated to warehousing, safely storing precision-cut steel components until our customers need them.

Local Steel Supply. Local Design & Construction.

ShapeCUT are committed to supporting local business. When we set out to build our new warehouse, we were keen to locally source as much of this build as possible.

Newstead architectural and engineering partners, McVeigh Consultants, have brought our vision to life with their detailed renders and site plans. You can see how their design carries over the ShapeCUT colours and echoes the facade of our existing building.

Brisbane-based friends, Wiley, have a wealth of experience in design and construction for industrial buildings and are handling this project from start to finish.

The Australian steel used in this project is sourced from local suppliers, Bluescope Distribution in Eagle Farm, and Infrabuild who are based in Coopers Plains.

All overhead cranes are supplied by Konecranes, formerly Demag Cranes, located just up the road in Carole Park.

Growing Our Australian Business.

We are thrilled and humbled to enter into the next phase of growth of our business, in what has been a tough time for many Australian businesses.

ShapeCUT started out in 1994 operating out of the back of Drake Trailers’ shed in Rocklea. Jack Obadashian continued to grow the business organically, offering high quality plasma and oxy cutting services to the local area at a good price. Jack has never lost focus on the importance of quality goods, strong relationships and genuine customer service.

Today, we are Queensland’s largest privately owned metal processing firm with 14 modern machines, the largest stock of steel plates on the market, and a custom-built job processing system all backed by a dedicated and experienced team.
