Ahrens proves mighty helpful for Mitre 10 build

Mitre 10 might be known as the mighty helpful independent hardware stores across Australia but an ability to think outside the box proved Ahrens could also be mighty helpful.

Ahrens were engaged to design and construct this 4,100m2 new retail store in Nuriootpa, South Australia as part of The Barossa Co-Operative’s multi-million-dollar retail precinct redevelopment.

Latent ground works, such as hidden underground cellars and wells, proved to be a challenge but Ahrens were able to deliver the project to the client under budget and a month ahead of schedule.

Scope of works included the demolition of the existing Mitre 10 trade site, design and construction of the warehouse store, associated offices, amenities and storage areas as well as car parking and landscaping.

Ahrens were able to provide a number of cost-effective solutions to the project to ensure value-for-money for the client.

This included the installation of electronic roller doors and sliding doors instead of the more expensive option of smoke spill fans.

The project not only rounded out another successful Mitre 10 store delivery for the Ahrens team, but also earned high praise from The Barossa Co-Operative Facilities Manager Shane Wild.

“Working with Ahrens was an excellent experience with the organisation providing exceptional service,” Mr Wild said.

“The team demonstrated absolute professionalism, commitment and attention to detail – traits that ensure a fantastic outcome for the Co-Op and the community.”
