The Reject Shop has recently commenced operations in their purpose designed and built 10,000m2 distribution centre. This distribution centre complete with its admin offices, 6 receiving docks and 9 dispatch dock areas has been an important step for the Reject Shop’s’ future expansion into the Western Australian retail market.

i2C partnered with ATG consulting Engineers, assisted The Reject Shop through the initial brief and design preparation for the purpose of a developer expression of interest to build and lease these premises. This scope was further extended into the construction stage where i2C acted as a project manager in a client representative capacity and undertook tasks that included construction site representation, documentation reviews, project stage reporting and provided support to The Reject Shop during the final days of construction before handover and practical completion.


Challenges

From the early conceptual stage i2C was involved in designing the site specific operational and spatial requirements around the needs of The Reject Shop to ensure that the developer could then proceed with the formal design process with a satisfactory design outcome. This design process involved various briefing sessions held with The Reject Shop key internal stake holders followed by the specification writing performed by the services and architectural consulting teams. The result of the briefing was a comprehensive concept design document that included drawings, specifications and builder / tenant scope of works.


Outcomes

At the handover stage The Reject Shop were immediately able to commence the operational tasks that the distribution centre was designed for accepting containers of products ready for storage and onward distribution to the Western Australian stores. The distribution warehouse will continue to increase its volume of stored products to its maximum capacity to cater for the growth of The Reject Shop in Western Australia for years to come.
