CoGri Asia have begun construction of the high performance floors for the Toll City facility in Tuas, Singapore.
The project represents the latest high tech logistics facility to be constructed on the island – home to one of the world’s busiest ports and a key strategic location for the logistics industry. The S$228 million facility includes 100,000 m2 of warehousing on five levels, advanced security and environmental capabilities and is further evidence of Toll’s continued commitment to the region.
CoGri Asia are delivering the project in collaboration with Precise Development Pte Ltd, a leading Singaporean construction group known for outstanding quality, safety and efficient site management. The two firms have previously collaborated on marquee logistics projects like the DHL Tampines Logispark, recognised as the gold standard for concrete floors in the region. CoGri Asia are employing the same successful blueprint for the Toll City facility – a bonded topping system that was developed and refined to meet the unique requirements of the multi-storey warehouse market in Singapore.
“Our system allows rapid and cost effective construction of large facilities to the world class FM2 flatness specification as per TR34” Said Tim Walker, Regional Manager ASEAN for CoGri Asia. “The floors achieve a durable and dust free surface and most importantly we minimise the cracking issues that have traditionally plagued multi-level warehouses and caused headaches for building owners and tenants alike.”
Toll City will open in Mid 2017. CoGri Asia are scheduled to cast the high performance floors at a rate of 30,000 m2 per month in order to meet the racking installation timetable – a feat that is achievable thanks to the close integration with Precise Development and the use of semi-automated large pour construction method.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with Toll on such a cutting edge project.” concluded Tim. “Toll are an Australian 3PL company with global reach. They are owned by Japan Post and have advanced plans for expansion throughout the region. Toll are very keen to develop partnerships with capable organisations in the region that share their values, so we see this opportunity to establish ourselves with Toll as they embark on that expansion programme.”
