OUR PROJECT EXPERIENCE
Ahrens has a proven track record of delivering high-quality design and construct solutions for a variety of clients in the transport & logistics sector.
Inpex Offshore Logistics Base
LocationDarwin, Northern Territory
Project Value$26.2 million
Building Area44,800 m2
This expansive project consisted of the design and construction of an offshore logistics base as part of INPEX’s multi-billion dollar Ichthys LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) Project. The base was required to provide key support infrastructure for Ichthys LNG Project’s major offshore facilities.
Toll Group was awarded the contract for the design, build, finance, operation and maintenance of the offshore logistics base and in turn, selected Ahrens as the lead contractor for the project.
Spanning a total site area of 44,800 square metres, the base exemplifies Ahrens ability to tailor customised logistic solutions. The 11,187 square metres building area incorporates a warehouse, in-staging and out-staging zones, an undercover dangerous goods storage area, large temperature-controlled storage area, a mezzanine, and offices.
Linfox Distribution Centre
LocationAcacia Ridge, Queensland
Project Value$28 million
Building Area30,000 m2
This project for the Goodman Group in the Acacia Link Industrial Estate, gave us the opportunity to design and construct two large-scale warehouses for the Linfox Transport Group. Over two sites, the complex consisted of a series of warehouses, offices and service buildings. It enabled the client to have five separate businesses together in one location.
As well as a 20,000-square-metre warehouse, there are four office buildings, a workshop, truck wash, container wash and a truck refuelling facility. The adjacent site includes a 10,000-square-metre warehouse and an office built ‘on spec’.
TOLL ROUS HEAD INDUSTRIAL PARK
LocationFremantle, Western Australia
Project Value$11.4 million
Building Area6,000 m2
This multi-million-dollar project was for the design and construct of a new intermodal freight facility at the Port of Fremantle. The new facility for Toll Group, in partnership with Fremantle Ports Authority, needed to provide storage and access for importers and exporters utilising Toll’s national freight network.
Scope of works for the 4.3-hectare site in Rous Head Industrial Park included a 6,000 square metre warehouse and cross dock, 2,500 twenty-foot equivalent unit (teu) of hardstand for the container park, quarantine and fumigation services, and a public weighbridge - the only one at the port. The facility also includes energy efficient features such as LED lighting and rainwater harvesting and recycling.
DHL Exel Office and Warehouse
LocationEdinburgh Park, South Australia
Project Value$16 million
Building Area32,800 m2
This project for leading developer the Goodman Group, included a substantial warehouse and office facility for end-user DHL Exel. Our project and site teams worked to an extremely tight construction program which was achieved by supplying steelwork direct from our own manufacturing facility in South Australia.
The scope of works included the installation of Alucobond cladding on the office facade and landscaping of the site, contributing to a stand-out facility in the Edinburgh Park industrial estate.
Kerry Logistics Distribution Warehouse
LocationGillman, South Australia
Project Value$4.5 million
Building Area9,000 m2
Kerry Logistics specialises in container logistics and freight storage for the international market, requiring substantial warehousing. This project entailed the design and construction of an 8,500-square-metre warehouse and a neighbouring two-storey office building to house the client’s new head office.
The client’s requirements included three loading docks, significant hard stand areas totalling 6000 square metres, and a cantilever awning running the full length of the warehouse. Ensuring the exterior colours were in line with the client’s corporate branding was also a requirement, which resulted in vibrant, visually-striking exterior walls.
Ahrens was able to complete the new warehouse and despatch building while the existing facility remained operational at all times during construction.
Metcash Dry Goods Warehouse and Coolroom (NT)
LocationEast Arm, Northern Territory
Project Value$15 million

This full turn-key design and construct project consists of a dry store warehouse, freezer and coolroom warehouse, a canopy and loading dock and despatch and administration offices. We worked to a tight construction program to deliver a modern facility which incorporates the latest technology.
The substantial wholesale grocery warehouse in the Darwin Business Park is leased by Metcash Trading as part of a major business initiative involving the Arnhemland Progress Association. The income from the lease subsidises produce sold in stores throughout Arnhemland.
