More than 20,000 tonnes of sustainable materials are being used to build Linfox’s newest Distribution Centre in Willawong, Queensland – a 90,000m2 facility including state-of-the-art warehouse, workshops and offices.
The lead contractor, CIP, awarded the civil works to Lantrak Projects and recommended Alex Fraser to supply the quality, sustainable construction materials required for their project.
CIP Project Manager Mick Moore has long been an advocate for the use of recycled materials to achieve quality, sustainable outcome.
“I was rapt to see Alex Fraser supplying this project, apart from the sustainable advantage they offer, I’ve always found them to have great quality product with the kind of service you can rely on,” he said.
Lantrak’s Business Development Manager Ben Palmer said that his experience with Alex Fraser had been efficient and easy. The professionalism and friendliness of Alex Fraser’s drivers was a standout benefit of the service.
“One Saturday morning, after completing his delivery your truck driver stopped and handed me a cold lemonade from his fridge. He said, “Here you go mate, it’s too hot, have a cold one!” How’s that for service?”
Ben also said choosing Alex Fraser’s sustainable materials was an easy decision.
“The recycled material is an ideal option for Lantrak as it directly aligns with our ‘Reuse and Recycle’ approach – it’s Lantrak’s way of doing the right thing by the environment,” he said.
To date, Alex Fraser have supplied 6,200 tonnes of recycled roadbase to the project. Lantrak’s work is expected to be completed in March utilising a total of 20,000 tonnes. Other contractors including CIP and Shepcon have also chosen to use volumes of recycled roadbase, aggregates and crusher dust on their portions of the project works.
By choosing Alex Fraser recycled products for this project, Lantrak Projects Pty Ltd have:
• Reduced landfill by 20,000 tonnes
• Reduced traffic by 60 trucks
• Reduced carbon emissions by 130,587 kg
