Construction is underway at Westfield Kotara on the new Eastern Mall. The 20,000 square metre upgrade will add 30 new shops including 2 international based mini-majors. Westfield Kotara is a hub of the Hunter Area and a focal point for the community. The major modifications and additions to a highly valued centre created the need for a very detailed demolition and construction sequence/methodology to keep the centre trading as usual. The works are overseen by MPN engineers who are regularly on site overseeing the demolition of the existing structure and the installation of all the new structural components.
