Glassons was developed by our property team, from land acquisition to a complete Design Build solution. We utilised our end to end supply chain to execute this outcome for Glassons.
We have a history of developing smarter property outcomes for our clients, and these purpose-built premises for Glassons were no exception. The popular clothing brand has been around for a century, and to stay in both business and fashion, they’ve continued to reinvent themselves to reflect changes in the industry. Today, Glassons is progressively moving online, yet they still retain their strong brick and mortar presence nationally across 36 outlets.
To better cater to their online clientele, owner Hallenstein Glasson Holdings determined it was time for Glassons to expand their distribution centre, which is where we came in. The Glasson’s team turned to us for the perfect location and Design Build solution. Our booming Hornby Quadrant section in Christchurch was selected as the locale, providing ample space for a new warehouse and dispatching centre.
The project included all our classic package options — structural steel, precast concrete and reinforced building supplies, all sourced from within our own companies. Without a hitch, the ground crew completed the build weeks ahead of schedule. The build came right in time for the client’s online launch, which greatly increased their satisfaction with our overall service.
