DesignInc announced as part of the preferred design and construction team for the Melbourne Market relocation project.
Bovis Lend Lease has been selected as the preferred builder for the design and construction of the new wholesale fruit, vegetable and flower market at Epping, north of Melbourne.
The new relocated market, situated just off the Hume Highway, will deliver:
- An efficient, competitive and accessible market;
- A vastly improved occupational health and safety environment for market users; and
- Significant growth opportunities for Melbourne’s north through the expansion of warehousing and related transport services.
DesignInc, acting as lead design consultant, worked closely with Bovis in preparing a proposal for the new market at the 133 hectare site.
The market’s design will offer superior facilities and logistical arrangements for up to 4000 wholesalers, growers and retailers.
Works are expected to begin later this year with the market set to be fully operational in 2012.
