Indooroopilly Shopping Centre Redevelopment
The $450 million redevelopment of this iconic retail centre added over 30,000 square metres of retail space and included a new mall, fresh food area, department store, supermarket, plaza and restaurant areas as well as significant works to the existing centre.
Key features of the project included:
- The closure of 2 roads where MPN co-ordinated the road network modifications as well as all service diversions and new service easements.
- Significant structural modification works to the existing centre. These included new penetrations for lifts, escalators etc., infilling of existing voids, upgrading of the structure for increased design loads, column removal within tenancies and new loading docks as well as modifications to the existing façade.
- MPN worked closely with Brookfield Multiplex to ensure all works were staged to minimize the impact of works on the existing tenants.
- The redevelopment also included a new mezzanine car park constructed below the existing centre. Due to insufficient clearances the existing ground floor including the footings supporting the existing 5 storey centre needed to be lowered to accommodate the new mezzanine. MPN developed an innovate method of safely ‘lowering’ the existing footings whilst the centre remained trading.
