Innovative Design in Industrial Warehouse Construction

Why This Christchurch Timber Supplier Chose Coresteel Donobeam®

Coresteel Buildings' proprietary DonoBeam® steel structure design caught Declan Kenneally's attention because every square meter counts for a timber supplier needing to increase capacity.

DonoBeam®'s steel-saving design is ideal for large-scale commercial and industrial warehouse construction because it requires no supporting brackets or braces, which adds extra usable internal space.

Partnered with Conqueror PIR panel, the overall effect is minimalist lines and a seamless finish while providing the warehouse building inhabitants with a warm, comfortable workplace.

Modern Warehouse Building: Impressive Upgrade for Christchurch Timber Supplier

Kenneally Timber is a fourth-generation, family-owned and operated timber supplier. For over 100 years, the company has produced and supplied quality timber products for the Christchurch market.

After outgrowing their existing premises, Kenneally Timber's owner-operator approached Coresteel Buildings Canterbury to design and build a custom warehouse building, showroom and office with an external work area large enough to meet the business's growing requirements. The project represented a significant step forward for this local Kiwi company.

Full-turnkey packages are efficient because one head contractor provides the engineering, manufacturing and construction teams. By managing the entire building journey, Coresteel delivered this warehouse building and distribution centre in a shorter timeframe and maintained a cost-effective price for the client.

Everyone involved in the build got together for a fun-filled opening night, complete with an appearance from the Highlanders sponsored by Corcon and Coresteel Buildings. We are pleased to enjoy a terrific relationship with this Christchurch timber supplier and aim to cultivate the same with each of our valued clients.

Client quote

"We are absolutely thrilled with the finished product. Coresteel Buildings Canterbury has absolutely nailed this project from start to finish.

From the initial meeting, design-build concept, and costing, through to the planning meetings and construction, everything was completed on budget and on time.

Stephen, Nicky, and Coresteel have been an absolute privilege to work with, and we look forward to working with them in the near future.

It is now our job to complete the yard and racking fit-out. If we can complete it to the same high standard, quality, and professionalism as Coresteel, it will be a final product we can truly be proud of."
