Construction starts on ARDEX’s new headquarters at The Yards, Kemps Creek

Aware Real Estate, together with our joint venture partner Frasers Property Industrial  are pleased to welcome ARDEX at The Yards, a premium estate in Kemps Creek, New South Wales.

Construction has commenced on the new Oceania headquarters and production plant for Ardex with the global manufacturer committing to a 20-year lease for the state-of-the-art 26,265 sqm facility at the innovative industrial precinct. The estate is now over 76 per cent committed, with leasing transactions secured to leading technology, pharmaceutical, manufacturing and freight, and logistics users.

Developed in partnership with Altis Property Partners, the facility has been designed to target a 6 Star Green Star Design and As-Built v1.3 rating from the Green Building Council of Australia. A planned solar panel system spanning 17,000 square metres will allow ARDEX to manufacture utilising its own energy production, in addition to rainwater collection tanks and energy-efficient lighting that will be incorporated into the building’s design.

Together we celebrated a sod turning event onsite attended by Altis Property Partner’s Executive Director, Alastair Wright and Development Director, Stephen O’Connor, Frasers Property Industrial’s Executive General Manager, Ian Barter, and ARDEX’s Chief Financial Officer, Uwe Stockhausen and Regional Managing Director, Fabian Morgan.

“Aware Real Estate is proud to strengthen Western Sydney’s position as a growth hub in New South Wales and do our part in supporting economic prosperity. We are looking forward to a long-standing partnership with global company, ARDEX, and helping deliver in partnership with Altis Property Partners, a sustainable and industry-leading facility to benefit their employees and operations.”
