The site, located at 415 Fitzgerald Road, Derrimut, spans 10,802sqm and was developed with a 490sqm office, 920sqm showroom and 3,307sqm warehouse and service centre. Vermeer Australia is a national manufacturer and dealer of commercial machinery for the construction, mining and environmental sector with dealerships and service centres Australia wide.
Cadence and East Union entered into a pre-lease agreement with Vermeer to deliver the facility on an initial term of 10 years.
Cadence Property Group director Charlie Buxton said the new location at Fitzgerald Road provides a much greater level of exposure, accessibility and operational functionality for one of Australia’s fastest growing commercial machinery dealers.
“With the need to accommodate both front of house operations within the showroom and back of house works within the warehouse and servicing centre, Vermeer had very specific locational and performance requirements. The site at Fitzgerald Rd with both access and exposure to the Western Freeway provided Vermeer with a highly visible location and allowed the various onsite operations to work harmoniously” said Mr Buxton.
Cadence worked very closely with the operational team from Vermeer and internal project manager Sheryl Richardson. “Embarking on a project to deliver a purpose built facility was not something Vermeer had done before in Australia so we were in relatively unfamiliar territory. The team at Cadence did a fantastic job of drawing us into the process and working through our operational objectives to achieve what we believe to be our premier facility.
We had very specific requirements with regards to our building layout and the operational functionality of the facility both current and into the future. Cadence delivered a design that not only responded to our brief but ultimately expanded on our requirements to create a facility that is now considered one of our best worldwide.” said Sheryl.
