BSR Group finds new home at Brisbane Airport
Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) is set to welcome national electrical and furniture retailer, BSR Group, announcing the development of a new headquarters and warehouse at the Da Vinci educational and industrial precinct.
Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) has commenced construction of an office and warehouse space totalling 5,600sqm for the BSR Group, an Australian franchisor overseeing more than 220 retailers including the Betta Home Living, Furniture Zone, and Designer Appliances chains.
Martin Ryan, BAC Executive General Manager Commercial, said the Da Vinci precinct was developing rapidly, thanks to strong demand for premium development sites with the ability for 24/7 operations.
“We look forward to the BSR team joining the airport community when they move into their purpose built sustainable development, and the extra jobs it will deliver,” he said.
“It is a hive of activity at Brisbane Airport, with leading Australian and global companies choosing to base their operations here due to the excellent onsite amenity, unparalleled connectivity, and transport links.”
The BSR Group project will consolidate its two existing sites into a 5,600sqm office and warehouse space, plus 118 on-site car parks, associated hardstands and solar-energy generation that will total 390kW.
BSR Group Chief Executive Officer Gavin Carter said Brisbane Airport was a strategic choice for the group.
“Bringing our business operations together at Brisbane Airport was the right choice for BSR Group,” he said.
“The size of the new development will allow us to create efficiencies across our business, not only by having one property, but also giving us oversight of our supply chain.
“With our retailers’ sales growing year on year, the scale of the Brisbane Airport industrial precinct also provides us with the opportunity to expand in the future.”
BSR Group will join existing tenants within the precinct including DHL, the Virgin Australia Training Centre, QANTAS Flight Training Centre, Aviation Australia and Mitsubishi.
BAC is also building a development for Schneider Electric in the Da Vinci precinct, adjacent to the BSR Group, to meet demand for premium industrial sites in southeast Queensland.
Brisbane Airport Corporation is guiding the responsible development of one of Queensland’s largest mixed-use sites, with 2,700 hectares of landholdings.
The new developments are under construction and are expected to be completed early in 2023.
