Family-owned Queensland logistics company, DNV Transport, will soon move to a new location at Port of Brisbane’s Port West industrial estate in Lytton with the two parties agreeing terms for a 1.05 hectare site.
DNV Transport – a business that specialises in containerised movements throughout the south-east Queensland area – has signed a lease term of 10 years plus two five-year options.
The 1.05ha site will comprise a 1,500sqm warehouse, 404sqm covered wash bay, 220 sqm covered workshop and office area of 300 sqm. The site will also include 6,360sqm of container-rated dedicated hardstand, six reefer charging points and six 40-foot fumigation pads.
Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) CEO, Roy Cummins, welcomed the agreement and said the Port was pleased to be able to work DNV Transport and help bring them closer to the wharves and terminals.
“DNV Transport has operated within the broader port precinct since 2011. We are delighted to be part of its growth story and to work with them to design and deliver a modern, purpose-built facility that will deliver superior efficiency and safety outcomes and increase its operating capability,” said Mr Cummins.
The deal was negotiated by Dan Costello from K2 Private Property. “It was a real pleasure assisting DNV Transport find a new home. Appointed as their preferred agent, we went through a rigorous process to select the right site with exactly the right build to accommodate their requirement and the Port of Brisbane was the standout project partner,” said Mr Costello.
Construction is due to commence in late-2019 and targeting mid-2020 completion, with a total construction cost estimated at approximately $5.3 million.
The facility has been designed by McVeigh Architects, with the building contract currently being tendered by PBPL.
DNV Transport will join a thriving Port West industrial estate comprising six national and global port-related businesses.
