PAN ASIA LOGISTICS CELEBRATES GROUNDBREAKING
Pan Asia Logistics Singapore Pte Ltd officially broke ground at 10.30 a.m. today on a three-storey warehouse cum office building at Changi North, following an elaborate one-hour ceremony carried out by a ‘fengshui’ master.
The 200,000 sq. ft. building is designed to house a 160,000 sq. ft. warehouse space and 40,000 sq. ft. allocation for office usage. The new warehouse will be built with several different functional areas to cater to niche requirements such as air-conditioned storage, and medium to high security storage.
“We are extremely excited to have arrived at this very important milestone in the development of our company”, beamed a proud and happy Mr. Christian Bischoff, founder and Managing Director of Pan Asia Logistics. “We are all very excited and looking forward to finally having our own warehouse space and office, complete with after-hours facilities for the staff. The building will also have a large roof terrace and sky-garden.”
The Design & Building Project awarded to Boustead Projects Pte Ltd is Pan Asia Logistics’ biggest investment to date costing S$38 million, which includes a 30-year lease with JTC. The project is targeted for completion by the spring of 2011.
Things are progressing slightly ahead of time and we can proudly report the completion of an important construction phase. The roof is finished!
At 9:30 in the morning, the last bit of cement was added on the rooftop of the Pan Asia Logistics flag ship building in Changi North. Wet works are completed.
In a symbolic act, the cement was brought into position with shovels by Pan Asia’s Managing Director Christian Bischoff, Executive Director Susan Tan, Logistics Director Daniel Garcia, Pan Asia’s GM in Singapore Joachim Hirt and Corporate Affairs Manager Catherine Thia.
The new Pan Asia Logistics Centre consolidates PAL’s Singapore headquarters and the East warehouse. It is scheduled for completion in the 2nd quarter of 2011 with the office being occupied end of May, followed by the commencement of the warehouse business.
