Westfield North Lakes Stages 1 and 2
The projects involved in design and construction of a new shopping centre and associated external road network and services on a ‘greenfield’ site at Mango Hill.
Stage 1 and Stage 2 included approximately 25,000 square meters of retail trading on 1 level with roof top car parking above the Stage 2 extension on the northern end. Retail tenants include Coles, Woolworths, Myer, Target, Big W and approximately 200 specialty stores. Key design features of the projects included:
- Design of portal framed roof framing system to avoid bracing within retail areas and maximize future retail layout flexibility. (Stage 1)
- Design of post tensioned floor plate system to maximize cost efficiencies and reduce construction times. (Stage 2)
- Design of structural framing systems to minimize construction period at the Stage 1 and Stage 2 interface.
- Structural allowance for future extension and / or change of retail use.
