Laverton Cold Storage will more than double the size of its refrigerated warehouse in Melbourne.

The 70,181 ft2 (6,520 m2) expansion, which is scheduled for completion in November, will take the total size of the temperature-controlled warehouse and blast freezer building to more than 129167 ft2 (12,000 m2).

The company stores meat products and pharmaceuticals at the facility. Solar power will be utilized to reduce Laverton Cold Storage’s operating costs.
