Contract Construction carried out all concrete and tilt panel erection works on this impressive 30,000m2 retail development
Northlink Centre is a brand format retail centre in the tightly held suburb of Papanui, anchored by the Kmart, Briscoes and Rebel Sport tenancies. The new single storey retail development includes 30,000m2 of retail and storage space. Project constraints driven by milestone opening dates requested by the anchor tenants required a fast-track design and build approach. The project was broken up into multiple stages to align with the client’s procurement of tenants.
Contract Construction were engaged to carry out the substantial concrete foundations, floor slabs, concrete encasement and precast erection works for the project Block A & Block B.
Concrete works included set out, reinforcing, casting in of hold down bolts and other inserts, drossbachs, and the placing and finishing of concrete to foundations, pads, footings, nib walls, and the floor slab. Tilt panels were stood, propped and fixed in place. Lifting and craneage requirements where determined and contractors engaged. We liaised with the separate excavation and services subcontractors to ensure coordination of the trades.
Given our experience as a Main Contractor, our team were able to greatly assist with the project management of the project. We took full control of the coordination of services under the slab and were able to work seamlessly with other subcontractors on site. As we knew most of these other contractors, we were often the first port of call if there were any issues or queries on site. Although we were not formally engaged in this capacity, we were happy to assist the process given our experience and expertise in these types of projects.
