The South Australian supermarket landscape is expanding, with ALDI opening up stores around the state in early 2016. This large rollout required a flexible builder, with a project delivery team tailored specifically for supermarkets.

ALDI need a builder that is flexible and tailored for supermarkets.


Sarah’s customer-focused team of supermarket specialists has worked closely with ALDI, providing tailored projects to suit the discount chain’s specific needs. By working closely with local management, Sarah ensured store fit-outs meet strict timeframes set by ALDI group management based in Germany.

Some of the ALDI projects, include:

ALDI Modbury – this project needed to be of the highest quality, but in a very short time frame. Sarah also needed to manage and monitor ALDI’s nominated trade subcontractors, to ensure they could meet the strict programme requirements.

ALDI Parafield Gardens – one of the first ALDI supermarkets to be built in SA and included the new building, storm water drainage and car park, over 2,000m in total.

ALDI Hallett Cove – a complicated project that required Sarah to re-route deliveries for other store tenants, due to the redesign of the existing car park.
