De Luca worked hand-in-hand with the client, Brisbane Airport Corporation, for the design and construction of a pre-committed purpose built tenant, FedEx – in the Brisbane Airport Airside precinct.
Featuring a tilt slab construction, the FedEx building consisted of a warehouse with six loading bays, attached two-storey office, car parking, landscape, and concrete hardstand turning bay within high security gates. De Luca maintained a fast-tracked design program, allowing construction to begin early for the client.
Working with FedEx, De Luca tailored the internal fit-out to suit a low-cost budget. The fit-out included a staff lunch room, meeting rooms (erection of petition walls), and installation of all office furniture. Brisbane Airport Corporation’s high standards of environmental regulations including the use of recycled water, storm water harvesting, and solar shading were all taken into consideration and implemented throughout the construction.
