Brisbane Airport is beginning construction of its largest industrial project, a state-of-the-art A$50m parcel facility for Australia Post

Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) is managing the design and delivery of Australia Post’s StarTrack Premium site, which will be the postal service’s second largest in Queensland.

The Brisbane North Parcel Facility, which is due to be operational in mid-2025, will span 31,800m2 of internal area, with direct airside access from the 100-hectare Airport Industrial Park.

Brisbane Airport chief executive officer Gert-Jan de Graaff welcomed the expanded partnership with Australia Post, which will consolidate its two Brisbane sites within Brisbane Airport’s industrial zone.

“This will be the largest industrial project ever constructed at Brisbane Airport,” he said.

“By providing Australia Post with direct airside access, we’re streamlining the delivery of time-sensitive parcels, benefitting millions of Queenslanders in the South East and regional areas of the state.“

Not only do we offer direct tarmac access, but Brisbane’s arterial road network is right on our doorstep.

“We are proud to develop projects that enable Queensland to grow and connect to the world.”

The 33,800m2 facility will include a custom-built warehouse and a two-level 2,000m2 commercial office space.

Sustainability features will be prioritised in the development, which is targeting a 5-Star Green Star certification for energy and water efficiency, climate change resilience and reduced environmental impacts during construction.

The building will include more than 1,000 solar panels for renewable energy generation. This will complement BAC’s goal of net zero emissions in 2025.

Earth works have just commenced, with construction generating around 1,500 jobs.

The industrial expansion is part of Brisbane Airport’s A$5bn Future BNE programme, which includes upgrades to the Domestic Terminal, International Terminal and planning for a new Terminal 3.
