CIP Constructions attend SOD Turning Ceremony at LOGOS Group’s new $230m Broadmeadows Estate, ahead of initial build.

CIP Constructions were in attendance as LOGOS Property hosted the first SOD turning ceremony of their Broadmeadows Logistics Estate, in May 2021 breaking ground at the future home of a $230m LOGOS redevelopment, which once complete will support e-commerce, distribution, food, and cold storage.

LOGOS acquired the former Woolworths distribution facility in 2020 and is transforming the 25- hectare Estate, developing more than 120,000sqm of warehousing space, with lots ranging from 6,000- 50,000 sqm for use. Once complete, the estate will offer access to key transport links across Melbourne, including the Hume Highway interchange and planned North East Link, as well as the Tullamarine Freeway.

CIP Constructions are proud to have been awarded the first construction facility of the Broadmeadows Estate, a 12,630 sqm, distribution facility for an independent Australian courier and express freight company. This facility will feature a 11,800 sqm warehouse, as well as an 830 sqm double story office, complete with EOT facilities and lift. The total site area is 27,403 sqm and includes 8,660 sqm of heavy-duty paving, more than enough to support the 23 truck docks, including recess and hard docks.

Once complete, the facility will be 5 Star Green Star certified, with the Green Building Council of Australia certifying the facility as ‘Australian Excellent’. Features of the 5 Star Build include a vertical green wall with a rainwater irrigation system, as well as the use of 99 kw solar panels for electricity. Once complete, this facility will be the 3rd 5 Star Green Star certified built by CIP in the past year, reiterating CIP’s commitment to sustainable building practices.

CIP Construction’s Project Manager, Luke Santilli has stated ‘We are looking forward to working together with LOGOS on what will surely become Melbourne’s newest industrial investment hub. CIP are mobilising on site and progressing well, with PC anticipated in October 2021.’

This is CIP’s first occasion working with LOGOS Group, who’s APAC portfolio comprises 100+ logistics estates, with an AUM of approximately $13.8 billion.

CIP Construction’s ongoing commitments to sustainable construction throughout Australia.

CIP Construction’s ongoing commitments to sustainable construction throughout Australia.

It seems like a long time ago but back in 2012 CIP Constructions became the first contractor to succeed in being awarded the first ever 5 Star Green Star Industrial AsBuilt v1 rating 2012 granted in Australian Building history. In those days, achieving such a result was technically challenging, with few subcontractors and suppliers being aware of what was required and the lack of supply of recycled materials.

Thankfully, much has changed over the last 8 years, and Green Star rated buildings and developments are being created without too much fuss or additional cost. CIP has extensive experience in delivering both Green Star compliant and Green Star certified buildings. Such certified projects can be found on our project page, and include Nissan Australia, Sherwood Bus Depot and most recently, our Linfox Australia facility.

As well as delivering quality sustainable construction, CIP has committed to furthering their education of sustainable practices, with staff being encouraged to become Green Star Accredited Professionals (GSAP). Our GSAP Professionals are ever expanding, with resident Professional Tim Van Der Klauw helping to mentor and educate on site and internally.

CIP Constructions also has extensive experience with sustainability through the National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) system. NABERS ratings are a mandatory requirement for all commercial office spaces over 2000m² under the Building Energy Efficiency Disclosure Act 2010 (Commercial Building Disclosure (CBD). As well as the Building Energy Efficiency Certificate (BEEC) regulations coming into effect from 1 November 2011. This requires building owners to submit an energy efficient report and an assessment of tenancy lighting when leasing or selling the property.

CIP, through our consultation with other design team members can provide advice on NABERS rating and on energy efficiency to assist our clients to achieve:

  • Commercial Building Disclosure (CBD) Compliance
  • Improved NABERS rating
  • Potentially increased sale valuations and rental returns
  • More energy efficient buildings
  • Reduced running costs
  • Increased market appeal


Please see below pictures of just some of CIP’s sustainable facilities, including the new Nissan Australia headquarters and the first ever 5 star Green Star Industrial build in the Sherwood Bus Depot.
