The Griffiths Engineers design and Taylor Constructions team assisted in minimising costs by proposing a redesign of the structure and the utilisation of a hybrid system of composite precast panels, as well as tilt up construction. The layout of the 30,000 square metre building area suited the use of varying systems at the front and rear. The use of offsite precast panels reduced time off the programme.
The facility was completed three months ahead of schedule, enabling retailers to trade prior to Christmas.
The four hectare site features many of Australia’s leading retailers in 22 individual units. The centre includes parking for 1,100 cars.
Griffiths Engineers has designed over a million square metres of industrial buildings.
