Export Park is one of nine master planned precincts within the airport bounds and is designed to facilitate air cargo operations such as freight forwarding, logistics and warehouse distribution facilities.
The precinct focuses on speed to market with world class infrastructure including road, air and data, providing the point of difference from all other estates. Stages One and Two are closing in on full development with BAC continuing to invest in Stage Three during the next financial year. This development includes the creation of approximately 14 hectares of logistic land including some parcels with uninterrupted airside access.
Due to the estates unparalleled infrastructure, 2009 saw the completion of Australia's most efficient data centre, signalling a new era of sustainable design for this growing industry. With one of the lowest energy efficiency ratings in Australia, the new $44 million Data Centre, operated by iSeek, sets a new industry standard for next-generation green data centres in Australia.
The Data Centre measures 1.3 using the Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) benchmark developed by The Green Grid, a global consortium that recommends a maximum 1.5 PUE rating for data centres and is capable of transferring the equivalent of 10 full sets of the Encyclopaedia Britannica in and out of the facility every second.
Looking forward, BAC will continue to grow the commercial real estate portfolio with the immediate future looking bright. The continued development of master planned precincts such as Export Park, coupled with additional urban planning, will ensure that Brisbane Airport continues to deliver world class, well planned facilities for Queenslanders.Media
