Our award of this Design & Construct project resulted from a full tender process and was celebrated as a continuation to the relationship we have enjoyed with BAC.

With the base building project scope involving a partial demolition of an adjacent building (occupied by DHL) to accommodate the full new site footprint and considerable bulk excavation of unsuitable material the team wanted to get out of the ground as quickly as possible to mitigate wet weather delays.


This new “DHL EXPRESS Gateway & Service Centre” comprises 3,500m2 of warehouse, 780m2 offices, 2,650m2 heavy duty external paving, stand alone power generation systems and state of the art services and management systems.

The ultimate success of this 7 month long project was due to the close collaboration and coordination with BAC, DHL & Gaskin Construction Services.

“I would like to take this opportunity to express mine and BAC’s appreciation for a successful outcome to the DHL Gateway facility project.

From the outset, I believe both parties invested heavily in the relationship between the two organisations, with a collaborative and positive working relationship between the BAC project team and the entire Tomkins onsite crew.

The experience with Tomkins has been one of responsiveness in resolving our issues and delivering a building to BAC‘s high standards and tight timeframes in what was a very difficult project.”

– George Delibaltas, Development Manager, BNE Property – Brisbane Airport Corporation

“The project team you appointed have been professional, accommodating, easy to work with and very competent.

The successful completion and delivery of the DHL Express Facility has seen the seamless operational occupation into the facility as planned.

In addition, the solution focused attitude of your company and the ability of the project team to overcome some significant challenges on the job just reinforced Tomkins’ commitment to both client and the tenant.

At every level the quality and commitment has been exceptional and we are particularly impressed and grateful for the personal ownership of the successful completion of this project.”

-Matthew Gaskin, Gaskin Construction Services
