Wembley Downs Shopping Centre, WA
Duration: January 2010 to October 2010
Value: $4.6 million
Contract type: AS 2124 Lump Sum Hard Dollar
Summary: Built Environs constructed this 1,800 m2 single-storey four-tenancy shopping centre in Wembley Downs, which is now occupied by an IGA supermarket and three other businesses.
The building was constructed on a reinforced continuous concrete pedestal, with structural steel columns, tilt-up precast concrete panels and a metal roof, and features DigiGlass with graphics explaining the history of the area.
An acoustic and crash barrier wall was required to protect the neighbours from excessive noise and an adjacent child care centre playground from truck movements associated with the supermarket.
Given the proximity to the site of small children, safety was paramount during construction.
