Maben Group successfully managed the design and construction of the Melbourne East Stage 1 project for Hillsong Church located at 557 Burwood Highway in Knoxfield.

The project involved the refurbishment of an existing warehouse to create a purpose-built religious facility, featuring a new 800sqm auditorium, cafe, open office, meeting rooms, multi-purpose rooms, amenities, and additional on-site car parking.

Works on site included the demolition and strip out of the existing warehouse and offices, alterations to the existing structure with steel strengthening works, interfacing of new and existing services, new roofing, external facade reinstatements, and new fit-out and finishes throughout.

Maben communicated with the Sydney-based Hillsong Church and the design team to ensure that the unique
requirements of the project were interpreted and executed efficiently whilst incorporating the technical and operational requirements of the audiovisual production facility.

The project was completed in January 2019 with the grand opening and first service held in February 2019.
