EXPANSION OF ICONIC MELBOURNE SHOPPING CENTRE

Owned by Scentre Group, ISPT and Asia Property Fund, Westfield Doncaster is a premium shopping destination located in one of Melbourne’s most affluent suburbs. The Centre is home to over 430 stores including leading brands Apple, Zara, David Jones, Myers, Coles and boasts one of the best fashion offers in the city, as well as a 9 screen cinema complex and a two level dining precinct.

KEY PROJECT DETAILS

MPN provided the full range of structural design and engineering services for the major expansion of the shopping centre.

Whilst the majority of the extension was new construction, large parts of the existing structure were retained and strengthened to suit their new functions. The conversion of car parking floors to retail, the addition of extra floors and new mall configurations, along with new skylights were all notable parts of the project. Where altered, the existing structures were strengthened to comply with the latest Earthquake Code requirements.

MPN worked directly with the structural steel detailer during the final design phase to collaboratively devise fabrication details that reduced fabrication times and providing significant labour cost and time savings.
