Today our team had the pleasure of attending a ground breaking ceremony for Haigh’s Chocolates new national production, distribution and administration facility to be located within the Terre Property Nexus North Industrial Estate, Salisbury South Australia. The honourable Governor of South Australia Frances Adamson AC, Simon and Alistair Haigh and Haigh’s CEO Peter Millard conducted proceedings unveiling the facilities design and business plans for the future. The new $130M facility will employ over 400 staff and allow Haigh’s to double their production capacity and enter into a new phase of significant growth and development. The facility contains 9,000m2 of production factory, 6,000m2 of distribution and online fulfilment warehousing along with 3,000m2 of staff administration and amenity facilities. Bell were engaged in 2021 by Haigh’s to champion the design of the facility. We are thrilled to see construction commence and look forward to continuing our role on the project as Architects, Interior Designers and Landscape Designer’s through to completion in the second half of 2025.
