The Colonnades Shopping Centre Fresh Food Market development achieved Practical Completion as expected earlier this month.
APP was appointed as Project Manager, Superintendent and Tenancy Coordinator with onsite works commencing in June 2015.
Including an extension to the existing Woolworths, a new ALDI store, 16 additional speciality tenancies and an open, external public plaza space containing interactive play elements, the project has delivered on time, and to the client brief.
The result is an exciting new open market-style precinct, with finishes and a material palate comprised of timber, exposed brick, steelwork, glazing and tiling that reflects a natural stone finish.
In addition, the tenancy fitouts are unique to the precinct. There is a market-style aesthetic within their tenancy designs, contributing another layer of detail through their material selections and design integration within the overall development and to the overall theatrical ambience of the space.
Substantial road works were also required for the project including the construction of new intersections connecting the centre to the existing local and new internal road network, associated car parking, new landscaping features and external entrance statements.
The project team comprising Sarah Mullins, Jason Wong and Leah Bagnell-Clegg have thoroughly enjoyed delivering this project and are looking forward to seeing the local community enjoy the new Colonnades Shopping Centre.
