A new Mitre 10 Mega has been constructed on the site of the old Sanitarium Marmite factory in Christchurch’s north-west.
The Retail Area over 5,569m² and Drive Thru of 2,980m² included for 150mm thick post-tensioned floor slabs on grade.
The Retail Area was designed to support 100kN forklift axle load with 15kN racking post loads while the Drive-Thru was designed for a higher HN axle load of 120kN and required support beams in trafficked doorways due to the heavier vehicle wheel loads.
The new store was opened in June 2016.
