It is with great pleasure that we announce that the Highpoint Shopping Centre David Jones/Kmart project has been awarded to Maben Group!

Following on from Maben’s successful completion of The GPT Group’s Mall Aesthetic Upgrade project at the Highpoint Shopping Centre, the David Jones/Kmart project is a retail refurbishment that separates the current two level retail space into two major single level tenancies. Works involve splitting the existing loading dock and removing the internal escalators to create a Kmart store on Level 2 and David Jones remaining on Level 3. Works are scheduled to commence in April 2021 with an opening date scheduled for late 2021.

Maben Group are extremely excited to be working closely with The GPT Group, Pomeroy Pacific, I2C Architects, Baigents and ADP Consulting and look forward to delivering another successful project.

The EastCo team are busy with pour 2 on level 5 today.

Perfect concrete pour conditions, right before the Easter break!

Coles opened to the public last week and as you can see, our team have been hard at work in the lead up to opening day! Well done team Woodlea, and thank you to all of our hardworking subcontractors for their efforts.

Demolition of the existing buildings located at the site of iCo Richmond was successfully completed late in 2020, leaving the site ready for construction in the new year.

Upon returning in 2021, piling works commenced and are now almost complete site wide – as are the strip & pad footings.

Maben Group is excited to continue working with Wilmac Properties throughout the development and together completing a successful, high quality build!

Our team have done another amazing job at Essendon Fields, with the Volkswagen Training Facility now complete!

The Volkswagen team have kicked off their fitout with the completion of the external signage.

The successful completion of the Volkswagen Training Facility, along with the purpose built training facility for Porsche Cars Australia completed in October 2020, takes the Maben Group + Essendon Fields project tally to seven.

Well done team.

The busy commercial office project is quickly moving upward.

The focus remains on moving the structure up to enable the lower ground areas to be stripped out and high level services rough-in can begin.

Concrete is on track, with the final pours of Level 2 complete and installation of the multi-level perimeter safety screens underway.

The construction of Woodlea Town Centre has had strong progress during January and February. Externally, the feature timber pavilion, gold cladding and external bluestone & granite paving are all coming together nicely and provide a glimpse of how the development will look upon completion.

Internally, works continue with the main mall finishes – including barestone cladding and feature timber which run through from the external canopy – and specialist lighting almost complete, giving the building a real wow factor.

A great work team!

It is with great pleasure that we share Albert Street has won the $15M – $20M category in the Excellence in Construction of Commercial Buildings at the 2020 Master Builders Victoria Excellence in Construction Awards!

Congratulations and thank you to our team, and a big thank you to Cremorne Properties Pty Ltd for all their assistance during last year’s judging.
