Global cosmetics manufacturer Jurlique International required a new purpose-built production facility in the brand’s birthplace of Mt Barker in the Adelaide Hills.
- Sector Commercial Office & Accommodation
- Client Jurlique International Pty Ltd
- Location Mt Barker SA
- Value $13M
- Contract Managing Contractor
Interestingly, the site chosen for the new facility was where a (unused) fish processing factory was built by BADGE nearly 30 years prior. Demolition of the old Springs Smoked Salmon facility allowed the construction of a new corporate office with attached warehousing and production facilities.
Our team was appointed as the Managing Contractor and engaged early in the design process. This allowed our construction experts to provide building consultancy advice and work collaboratively as part of the collective project team.
Key to the success of this project was the ability for us to provide advice in the design layout of the production side of the facility. We worked with the client to fully understand their process from end-to-end and offer design solutions that would allow cost and operational efficiencies, while ensuring that their specialist equipment and required services for production were seamlessly integrated.
Despite considerable wet weather conditions during the construction of this project, the result is a beautiful building to complement the Jurlique brand.
This project was Highly Commended at the 2018 AIB SA Professional Excellence in Building Awards in the Commercial Construction $5m to $25m category.
