Storage King, Riverwood NSW Australia

This new facility for Storage King in Riverwood NSW offered some unique opportunities. Located on Belmore Road, this project required the renovation of multiple existing buildings including a warehouse almost 150m long.

The warehouse renovation was a significant undertaking, requiring fire safety amendments to the internal building structure, new firewalls and roofing, and updated cladding and branding to the exterior facade. This was made even more challenging due to the structure sharing its longest wall with another business. And while the corridors that run the length of the warehouse aren’t the longest Storco has ever constructed, they’re certainly not far off.

The warehouse features a variety of unit sizes. The largest of them are 7×3m units with 2600mm high roller doors running half the length of the northern wall. A series of smaller units on both the ground and first floor of the warehouse help offer additional variety as well as maximising lettable area for the uncommonly long but narrow building. Storco also constructed a large mezzanine structure inside the warehouse. This long mezzanine has a floor area of almost 3,000m² and a floor-to-floor height of 3m. Hot-rolled 75×75mm SHS posts and bearers with Storco’s fabricated base plates support loads of up to 5kPa. Storco also manufactured the stairwells and handrails that provide mezzanine access.

In addition to the warehouse structure, the site also features three free-standing cinder-block storage buildings that allow storage of extra-large vehicles like caravans or material storage for trades and other small businesses. These buildings have ten storage units in total and include Storco’s Safeguard internal unit partitioning plus extra-high roller doors.

Another structure that serves as an office space and additional externally accessed storage faces Belmore Road.

The interior features Storage King’s standard storage fit out of Gloss White V5000 corridor walls, Lazurite Blue swing and roller doors, and Fullbright lighting track. Two rows of timber buffer rail and square aluminium corner provide protection from impacts throughout the facility.

Storage King Prestons was constructed in coordination with Mettle Projects and Creative Resolution Australia.
