Massive retail shopping centre extension.

Undertaking a massive retail shopping centre extension without disrupting the trade of current tenants.

Jimboomba Shopping Centre

STRUCTURAL / DEVELOPMENT AND CONSTRUCTION

Brisbane, Australia

The multi-faceted Jimboomba Shopping Centre project included a new 3000m2 Coles Supermarket, new speciality shops, extension of a major suspended level with undercroft parking and the refurbishment of 3 existing buildings – all of which had to be accomplished while the existing centre continued to trade.

Our redesign provided Hutchinson Builders with a competitive structural solution for a design and build tender. This project had to be delivered on a tight timeframe and required a creative approach to dealing with demanding ground conditions.

The project required collaborative programming and preemptive design solutions.

We provided some innovative piling options in order to overcome issues of complex soil conditions and challenging drainage requirements for lower lying areas of the site.

The simultaneous refurbishment of existing buildings, alongside the construction of the new basement car park, allowed work to be completed while existing tenants continued to trade with minimal disruptions.
