Wanneroo Central Shopping Centre, WA
Duration: June 2007 to August 2009
Value: $50 million
Contract type: AS 2124 (Lump Sum Hard Dollar)
Summary: Built Environs (formerly Perth Building Company) constructed a 23,000 m2 shopping centre in the Perth suburb of Wanneroo.
The shopping centre was built to accommodate Coles and Kmart stores, 50 specialty retailers, undercover car parking and included a separate office tenancy block adjacent the centre.
Construction was carefully planned and split into two main stages to maintain the operations of the existing centre and minimise disruption to retail trade.
In the first stage, Built Environs worked closely with authorities, centre management and the local council to install major services at the earliest possible opportunity.
The construction site and operational retail areas were separated by temporary walling structures that were progressively removed during the course of the works. This helped the centre owners and retail tenants continue to draw revenue while construction was underway.
