It’s a rare occurrence when we get to work on a self storage project in our own backyard – much less one within throwing distance of our own factory. Storco had the privilege of constructing the three storage buildings that make up this site, including the mezzanine and internal fit out for the split-level building in the centre of the site.
Located on Ralston Drive, the close proximity to a growing suburb and easy access via feeder road mean North Orange Secure Storage is in a prime position to serve the population of its namesake. The 5,000m² site allowed the construction of three buildings that offers over 150 drive-up and internal storage units.
The easternmost building houses the site’s largest units, each one offering 47 square metres for boating, camping, or commercial storage. On the opposite side of the site, another building with a staggered rear wall allows a variety of unit sizes while maximising the use of the land. The multi-level building in the centre is the largest of the three. It spans the sloping site, maximising the lettable area with drive-up and interior units accessible on both levels. These units range from 18m² to just 4.5m².
Storco’s lightweight building and mezzanine system proved to be the perfect solution for constructing the three buildings that make up the site. Storco also provided the interior fit out, which includes timber buffer rail, checkerplate protection for trolley return, and Fullbright lighting track on the interior of the upper floors. The site also showcases Storco’s range of door colours, with all seven of our standard colours on display throughout the facility.
The interior lighting is enhanced by the Fullbright lighting track and V5000 ceilings, which reflect light into the corridors and unit interiors.
The exterior facade was designed in coordination with the client, utilising lengths of coloured roller door coil. This simple and cost-effective solution adds a splash of vibrant colour to the road-facing walls, enhancing visibility and branding.
