Caltex’s Ripley project included an internal store fit-out to the new Caltex ‘Foodary’ image with new specifications for floor & wall finishes, services infrastructure and merchandising equipment. The ‘Foodary’ is the first one of its kind for the Caltex Queensland network.

Also required was the supply & installation of a new fuel storage facility and dispensing offering for both cars and trucks under separate canopies.



The Ripley store was originally conceived as a standard Caltex convenience store layout which was converted to the new Foodary image specifications during the construction of the site.

The revised store layout and additional services infrastructure presented Modus with the challenge of re-engineering the project front end with all subcontractors involved on site. Furthermore, the ‘Foodary’ image specifications were being tested across a number of pilot sites in other states and weekly iterations to finishes, fixtures and equipment were being issued by the client for implementation at Ripley.

Projects of this importance demand extreme diligence with regard to safety standards, as required by Caltex and Australian regulations. Modus formed a bespoke team of contractors with strong experience in the fuel sector ensuring a quick and agile response to meet the original project timetable.

Caltex has rewarded Modus in Queensland by contracting Modus to a further 5 Foodary projects throughout South East Queensland and an on going pipeline of major site upgrades into the future.
