Project Specifications

Kennards Self Storage

$5.9 million

Macquarie Park, New South Wales

June 2016

Construction of a new five-storey self-storage facility.


Total Construction was awarded the contract for the Design and Construction of a new five-storey 7,482m2 self-storage facility, including two goods lifts.

The base structure included a concrete post-tensioned frame with a structural steel roof portal frame clad in Colorbond to match Kennards’ corporate colours.

The first three floors of the facility were fitted out with 291 storage units.

The upper levels were left empty for future development.

The whole construction included both wet and dry fire systems.


The new facility is located at the rear of Kennards Self Storage’s Head Office in Macquarie Park which includes an existing operational storage facility. Total worked within a live environment which meant daily coordination and planning with Kennards operational personnel.

All materials handling was either by crane or materials hoist. Client access had to be reconfigured on days where cranage or concrete pours took place.

The adoption of a post-tensioned structure with Bondeck floor plates led to a quick and efficient construction.
