Wendouree Shopping Centre Expansion
- Value: $19 million
- Client: Stockland Development Pty Ltd
- Architect: i2c Architects
- Date: 2018
Stockland engaged Maben Group on a D&C Contract to manage the delivery of the Wendouree Shopping Centre
Expansion, which commenced in 2017.
The project required extensive demolition of the existing Woolworths, loading dock, carparks and neighbouring
houses. Three staged handovers were required to enable reconfiguration of the existing malls and completion of the demolition works.
The expansion included the new build of 7000m² retail space, comprising of a new Woolworths, BWS, 22 specialty tenancies, four kiosks, two new shopping centre entries, reconfiguration and construction of new carparks and new carpark entry on Norman Street.
Internal aesthetic upgrade works of the live trading centre were also completed with new mall tiling works,
revised signage, extensive services upgrades and two new playground spaces were created.
Access into the shopping centre was maintained at all times via a customer tunnel to limit impact on the shopping centre tenants with loading dock and carpark access remaining functional throughout the build.
The large and complex project was successfully completed in 11 months.
