Westfield Chermside Redevelopment Stages 4 and 5
Extensions Stage 4 and Stage 5 to the existing centre transformed Australia’s first suburban shopping centre (1957) to the largest shopping centre in Queensland and the 3rd largest shopping centre in Australia today.
These major extensions involved the construction of approximately 100,000 square meters of retail trading with basement and rooftop car parking. Retail tenants include Coles, Woolworths, Myer, David Jones, Kmart, Target, Big W, Event Cinemas and approximately 400 specialty stores. Key design features delivered by MPN included:
- Design and co-ordination of surrounding road network modifications to accommodate increased traffic volumes for this major retail hub.
- Design and co-ordination of significant stormwater drainage systems passing under the centre to accommodate Downfall creek that passes through the development site.
- Design of post tensioned floor plates systems to maximize cost efficiencies and reduce construction times.
- Structural allowance for future extension.
