The Goldwagen Distribution Warehouse is one of the better examples of the use of Colorplus® steel in AZ100.
Located in Centurion, Gauteng, Goldwagen’s new state-of-the-art distribution warehouse supports the company’s 100 franchised outlets, supplying cost-effective, high-quality automotive parts to the aftermarket spares industry across Southern Africa.
Building occupant Goldwagen, says that since 1992 its business has evolved into a globally recognised automotive parts distributor and franchise group with their franchised stores offering an extensive range of original equivalent parts to mechanical workshops, wholesale outlets, DIY enthusiasts, retailers, body repair shops and directly to the public.
According to Fortress REIT Asset Manager, Krishnen Naidoo, the new building was constructed within Louwlardia Logistics Park, strategically located along the N1 motorway, with easy access to all the arterial routes. Hence, this Fortress REIT development offers great visibility from one of the busiest roads linking Pretoria to Johannesburg, requiring that architects design attractive looking buildings for the public eye. The distribution warehouse in question was commissioned by Goldwagen and completed in June 2018. The building consists of both warehouse and office space.
With modern 24-hour security, tenants are protected by a dedicated reaction vehicle stationed in the park, which adds value to the buildings, advises Naidoo. The Park also has central fire tanks and pumps offering fire protection compliance to tenants at an affordable cost. Understandably then, a company with high value products such as motor spares chose to be located within this estate.
The Goldwagen Warehouse’s 28 993 m2 roof was expertly formed by Clotan Steel into its Clotan Kraftlock profile using Colorplus® Deep Ocean and Colorplus® Seaspray in AZ100 at a TCT of 0.58 mm
“Other energy saving interventions include LED lighting and solar (PV) panels”, Naidoo advises.
