Developed in partnership with Altis Property Partners, this built-to-suit 30,581 square metre facility will be SEKO Logistics’ new Australian headquarters as the company consolidates its two existing facilities.

The new facility will comprise around 30,581 square metres of modern warehouse space with 30,000 square metres of storage areas and three offices totalling 581 square metres. The design features full drive around truck access, 13 flush loading docks and eight recessed loading docks to support business growth, ease of access and worker safety.

The YARDS recently achieved Australia’s first and highest possible 6 Star Green Star Communities rating for an industrial estate from the Green Building Council of Australia. The building is targeting a 6 Star Green Star Design & As-Built v1.3 rating and will include a minimum 100kW solar power system (with capacity for upgrade), 60,000L rainwater tank, two electric vehicle charging bays, secure bicycle parks and end-of-trip facilities for staff.  More than 8,000 native plants have also been included in the facility’s surrounding landscaping.

Paul Lilliss, General Manager at SEKO Logistics said:

“The YARDS was a natural choice for our new headquarters and we are excited to be joining other leading businesses within the new community. With its high standards of innovation, technology and sustainability, as well as the strategic location on the backbone of Australia’s east coast delivery zone, we’re confident this new facility will help us meet our business growth targets and continue attracting top talent.

We look forward to working with the team to progress our plans, commence construction and consolidate our operations across Sydney.”
