One of the largest wineries in Australia has just undergone a major building expansion program to help it cope with booming demand brought on by international success.

Casella Wines, a standout performer in an industry which is boosting Australia’s exports, has just completed a new 16,000 square metre bottling plant and warehouse facility.

The company, voted Australian exporter of the year in 2004, is best known for its Yellow Tail brand which recently shipped its 21 millionth case overseas.

Casella Wines turned conventional marketing practice on its head by launching Yellow Tail in Australia only after it had become the number one Australian wine in the United States.

More than 26,000 lineal metres of LYSAGHT® purlins and more than 4,300 lineal metres of bridging was used

Based in Yenda, near Griffith, New South Wales, the company has grown from its first commercial plantings in 1965 to its current scale where it ships almost 40,000 bottles of wine each day.

Local region building industry contractors Hi-Marq Engineering, Marchiori Developments and P & L Bellato Plumbing worked on the expansion project which is the latest in a string of developments at the Casella winery.

Hi-Marq Engineering erected structural steel and fixed more than 26,000 lineal metres of LYSAGHT® purlins and more than 4,300 lineal metres of bridging.

Marchiori Developments and P & L Bellato Plumbing fixed more than 16,000 square metres of LYSAGHT TRIMDEK® cladding made from ZINCALUME® steel for the walls and roof of the new building.

"I was involved in the construction of the original production buildings at the winery 10 years ago," Peter Bellato said.

"This is a bigger project, but the concept is the same. The buildings have a light steel cladding which is applied over a double layer of insulation blanket. The result is very effective for controlling the temperature."

Adrian Marchiori, whose company Buildflex was involved in other aspects of the project as well as the cladding work also acknowledged the part played by TRIMDEK®.

"The TRIMDEK® profile in which the original buildings were clad is still in very good condition, so it made good sense to use it for this latest building," he said.

"This latest development is quite large by local standards. Apart from the roof and external wall cladding, almost 4,000 square metres of TRIMDEK® cladding in COLORBOND® steel was used to create an internal wall between the new bottling line and the barrel storage area."

All cladding, in lengths up to 22 metres was delivered to site by Noelvern Transport, a company which has established a strong reputation with the building industry in the region.

"BlueScope Lysaght made the job easier by staging deliveries throughout the construction phase and that is always a major assistance on a crowded building site," Adrian Marchiori said.

New 16,000 square metre bottling plant and warehouse facility

TRIMDEK® steel cladding has subtle square fluting in the pans of the profile to provide strength and long spanning capabilities. It can be used to provide economical wall and roof cladding for industrial and commercial applications.

A special anti-capillary groove in the side lap allow use on roof pitches as low as 2° (1 in 30) to be used. Due to its strength, spanning ability, lightness and rigidity, wide support spacings can be used with safety and long lengths allow one sheet from ridge to gutter without end laps.
