The 4500m² facility incorporates offices and an 825m² freezer.

Key construction elements included a 47.5m clear span, post-tensioned concrete mezzanine and specialised epoxy flooring and a roof structure which was assembled on the ground and craned into position.

The client required a fast tracked programme in order to have the plant ready for the upcoming herb harvest and processing.

Gourmet Garden’s development included benchmarked environmentally sustainable development solutions for water use, energy consumption, gas emissions and waste management.

BADGE has continued the working relationship with Gourmet Gardens, having delivered additional refurbishments and warehousing additions, including the 2014 loading docks and delivery road reconfiguration.
