Coca-Cola Amatil - M7 Business Hub, NSW


Goodman transformed what was previously a disused quarry site into a quality purpose-built industrial facility for Coca Cola Amatil (CCA). 

The 31,702 sqm mixed pallet distribution centre features a number of advanced architectural design and ecologically sustainable design principles. 

The facility was awarded the 2009 Urban Taskforce, Winner of Development Excellence Award for Industrial Development.

Ecologically Sustainable Development Principles

  • 112kW (2,000m2) solar photovoltaic (PV) system to provide a renewable energy source for the facility as well as helping manage peak energy demand.

Energy efficient initiatives in the warehouse area include:

  • C-Bus lighting control system to provide zoned lighting control to the functional workspaces within the warehouse
  • High levels of natural light with 10% of the warehouse roof space using translucent roof sheeting, which allows transmission of visual light but blocks solar thermal energy.

Energy efficient initiatives in the office area include:

  • Lighting to the office has been designed not to exceed 400 lux
  • T5 light fittings with high frequency ballasts


  • A rain water harvesting system that collects 240,000 litres of rain water from the roof for use throughout the facility, mainly in landscape irrigation and truck wash facilities. 
  • Installation of local, native landscaping and a moisture sensing drip irrigation system to reduce potable water consumption for landscaping by 90%.
  • Installation of fixtures with a high WELS rating.

Human and environmental sustainability

  • Low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) products for carpets, paints and sealants
  • Natural ventilation to the warehouse space to provide a comfortable work environment
  • 90% of demolition and construction waste was recycled 
  • Provision of daylight of 30% of GLA
  • Recycled Dense Grade Base (DGB) for all road base
  • Longspan roof sheeting to reduce the amount of roof sheeting and purlins
  • Efficient structural steel design to reduce the amount of steel in the project
  • Provision of indoor/outdoor break out space with amenities for staff
  • Extensive regeneration to the existing local ecology, with a significant riparian zone established throughout the estate.

Green Star Industrial Pilot Project

The facility was a Green Star Industrial Pilot project. It demonstrates that when owners, customers and builders work in partnership to establish practical “green” initiatives and targets, successful economic outcomes can be achieved.
