Storage King Opens New Self-Storage Facility in Queensland, Australia

Australian-based Storage King recently opened a new self-storage facility in Helensvale, Queensland, Australia. Designed and constructed by Steel Storage Holdings Pty. Ltd., an international construction and development firm, the four-story property was designed to reduce operational costs, present an appealing façade, improve the customer experience and maximize the rentable area, according to a Steel Storage press release.

The property at 128 Siganto Drive features a drive-through in the middle of the building, enabling construction to the edge of the lot. The building includes large windows on the front office and horizontal and color cladding. Black concrete was installed in the drive areas, and charcoal soffits were added in the drive-through to add design appeal, according to the release.

The reduction of operational costs was achieved through a number of features, including rooftop solar panels and mechanical ventilation with whirly birds in the roof to reduce electricity costs. Other features include a self-service rental kiosk, two types of elevators, a large retail area, free WiFi, a unit display to guide customers on unit-size selection, and a sink in the loading/unloading area.

The property uses a PTI Security Australasia access-control system compatible with the company’s smartphone apps, StorLogix and EasyCode. StorLogix allows the facility managers to remotely control doors and suspend access to late-paying customers. Tenants can use the EasyCode app to access the site. Additional security features include video cameras and individual unit alarms.

Steel Storage provides a full range of construction and development services to self-storage operators in Asia, Australia and Europe. It has offices in Brisbane, Australia; London; Paris and Singapore.

Storage King operates more than 140 facilities in Australia and New Zealand.
