Walkerville, South Australia
Fabcot Pty Ltd
A new neighbourhood shopping centre for Walkerville
Built Environs successfully constructed a 6,500 m2 retail precinct, including basement car parking, for Woolworths and 12 specialty retailers in the inner Adelaide suburb of Walkerville.
Situated on a constrained site with numerous adjacent businesses and residents the project team overcame numerous challenges to successfully deliver this project on time.
As the site had been excavated years ago by a developer, the team had to start work straight away, leaving little time to procure trades. They had to focus on long lead-time items, such as lifts and travelators, amid the tight programme. Furthermore, building on each boundary of the site left little room for constructing the building, so the team made use of surrounding roadways to deliver a safe, high-quality and timely outcome for Woolworths.
- 6,500 m2 retail precinct
