Kawana Shoppingworld Stage 5B
Kawana Shoppingworld Stage 5B consisted of a new cinema complex, a retail dining precinct, 580 new car spaces over 2 levels and a small area of commercial space. The project site was an existing on grade car park servicing the adjacent retail centre that continued to trade.
The new cinema complex included:
4 general admission cinemas
2 VMAX cinemas
3 Gold Class cinemas with waiting lounge and bar
General candy bar
Commercial kitchen and all staff and customer facilities.
MPN worked closely with the design and construction teams including Mirvac Retail, PDT Architects and the consultant design team, Events Cinemas and Buildcorp Interiors Qld. Key design issues successfully resolved included:
Tight building height restrictions while maximising cinema screen heights
Project staging and structural design to ensure the existing carpark could remain partially open at all stages of construction
Addition of the third gold class cinema after structural steel was fabrication and partial site erection was complete.
Stage 5A car park was also designed by MPN with works completed in late 2017. The project included a multistorey car park (approximately 350 new car spaces) and a connecting bridge to the existing rooftop car park over a fully operational private road. The bridge structure was designed to minimise road closures and associated impacts on the existing trading centre.
Value: $45 million
