Truganina, Stands Out In Its Field, Literally

Kennards Self Storage (KSS) not only has ground-breaking business practice…in this case, they have also physically broken ground (and progressed much further) at the next KSS centre to open in Truganina.

First impressions of the new site (scheduled to be opening on June 30, 2020) inspire a relative wow-factor in contrast to its current surroundings. Standing alone on a very large block of land, it is flanked only by rocks and soil, but with a horizon scape of quickly emerging concrete warehouse ‘mountains’ in the not too far distance. Once a deserted block, as construction has made leaps and bounds, it no longer looks akin to a scene you would expect a tumbleweed to drift across, accompanied by an eerie Western theme song.

Driving down Leakes Road, which is currently under improvements (part of the Western Roads full upgrade), the massive KSS site stands out as a gleaming beacon of Kennards orange and blue, amongst the already buzzing activity. Shops, distribution centres and warehouses are scattered around in the fields, soon to morph into a close-knit, thriving metropolis, barely on the outskirts of Melbourne.

Why Do Humans Feel The Need To Dig A Hole, Especially In Truganina!

Throughout our Kennards Self Storage (KSS) history of building new storage sites, our relationship with the soil has affected our ability to build and even influenced the future success of our storage facilities. Over the years, some of our Storage Centre designs have been affected by what’s under the ground which ultimately can have an adverse effect on our storage layouts. Undiscovered fuel tanks, contaminated soil, asbestos dumping’s, arsenic, tree roots and even bones (it ended up being those of a dog at Kennards Newcastle) are just to name a few. Unfortunately, we have never located gold or oil at one of our sites but we’re still trying.
