Rural Transport
When Rural Transport relocated their transport operation to the Northpark Road site at the entrance to Ashburton’s northern business park they required a new office and utilities to suit their growing business.  In 2014 Thompson began construction of their two storied office block which sits alongside their 3000m2 warehouse constructed by us a few months earlier.

The office is wrapped in precast panels all manufactured at the Thompson panel yard in Washdyke where the team took just 13 days to have them completed.   

The exterior of the office is painted in Rural Transport’s corporate colours and you can’t miss the red exterior finish! It has a raised dispatch area giving greater visibility to the yard and the upstairs employee social space is one of the best. The office ground floor is 280m2 and the first floor is 240m2 with a 17 m2 outdoor balcony area under the roofline. Upstairs there is a very spacious social area which contains a bar and kitchen facilities and opens out onto the balcony creating pleasant surroundings for employees.

A feature of the office is the access control into different divisions to ensure each employee has direct access to where they are needed to be. 
Situated in between the office and freight store next to the driveway, Rural had Thompson installed a large in-ground weigh bridge with a 24m long deck suitable to weigh a truck and trailer in one go.  Also installed down the rear of the site is an excellent truck washdown facility where Rural are taking care of the environment through their waste treatment facility. Overall this site has been well thought out and caters to all aspects of a modern transport operation.
